eptember was a busy month for us here at Helen Round. Two new makers joined our lovely team and are now working with us in the studio. They have started an apprenticeship programme where they will gradually learn all the necessary skills to pattern cut, sew and finish all of the products we sell both in the shop, online and with our stockists.
