Welcome to Hesketh Emporium
Headband for Heroes UK
& Handmade Sewing Groups
Headbands for Heroes UK is a group that has been set up to help our Key Workers to be comfortable while they work in very difficult times by making handmade accessories for PPE comfort.
If you’re a key worker you can order your headbands and accessories free here.
If you’d like to help support our efforts you can purchase products from our shop. All proceeds go to keeping our heroes comfortable.

Handmade with Hesketh Emporium
Handmade was created for community – a place where community can become a family.
We aim to teach sewing and craft skills, socialise and reduce isolation. My heart is to make a place where people can have fun, learn new skills and relax and get to know and understand one another better.
I am passionate about passing on my love of sewing and making to others, and to use these skills to make useful creations that are used and gifted to others.
Learning a new skill and building a community while we do it is what Handmade is all about. We learn to sew together and make special items every time we gather. We come together to celebrate what each of us can achieve and build relationships while we do it.
