During her two-decade career, Sew Helpful founder Lynda Prescod has explored every facet of her industry, including manufacture, design, production, wholesale, and retail. This broad base of knowledge makes her a sewing polymath and huge asset on trivia nights. Along with her staff, she references patterns to craft apparel from scratch, repairs stressed garments, and sews fresh curtains, cushions, and napkins. Her shop's sewing classes teach participants of all ages to mend cloth and increase the lifespan of their favourite dresses or burlap sacks.
