YOUNG ENTERPRISE: Young girl from Chorleywood made lockdown face masks

 Published on: 20th July 2020   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

A young girl from Chorleywood kept herself busy during lockdown by sewing and selling face masks.

Sienna Giles, nine, set up her own little business by creating face masks over the lockdown period. 

The young girl, who attends Chorleywood Primary School, discovered her passion by learning to sew at Material Girl after-school workshops with Claire Davies.

Her mum Hannah Simmonds, said: “Although she is not sewing masks anymore, Sienna loved working on this project.

“She was really excited and quite overwhelmed by the response she had. She decided to name her business ‘Sew Sew Sienna’ and I helped her set up an Instagram page too.

“We had a few people donating the fabric as well which was lovely and boosted her when she was getting a bit stressed about all the orders she had. 

“So many people contacted her, we put a little advert out on Facebook and she made over 150 face masks.

“One of my old school friends contacted her and ordered some, she’s an NHS nurse so we decided to make hers and call it a day to making the face masks and selling them.”

Sienna’s dream is to open her own shop in future where she’ll be able to sell anything sewed by her.
