Chatteris business Sew Smart is celebrating 10 years in business.

The clothing shop and haberdashery was set up by 47-year-old Cheryl Cornwell, who said it has always been her dream to run a ladies clothing shop.

“I have always had a passion for sewing since an early age,” Cheryl said. She is hearing impaired but has not let this stop her. “Then 10 years ago, with the help and support of family and friends, we got the shop up and running.

“The last three years have been difficult due to the economic situation and the decline in the High Street. But I would like to take this opportunity to thank my loyal customers and staff.”

Sew Smart sells ladies classic clothing and haberdashery and provides a clothing alteration/repair service on the premises. They are also a dry cleaning agency.

Sew Smart is open six days a week, from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 4pm on Saturday. And to celebrate, Cheryl is giving customers 10 per cent off ladies clothing, accessories and haberdashery throughout June.
