During Lockdown the Great British Sewing Bee made our time at home that much more bearable with inspirational projects that got us all digging out our sewing machines, searching on amazon for patterns to use and having a go at creating something special. Last night it was wonderful to see Doctor Clare Bradley, a lung specialist currently on the NHS coronavirus front-line, crowned the winner for 2020.




The final saw the 3 finalists create a boys 27-pleat kilt without a pattern, a transformation challenge of turning party dresses into fun carnival outfits, and Clare stole the show in the made to measure challenge with her 1930’s inspired red evening gown using luxury fabric.



The series has seen the contestants making fantastic creations including mens shirts, childenswear, trousers and more that captured the hearts of the nation. Be inspired with the fabrics they used with our vast collection of printed fabrics. Why not create your own floral masterpiece. 



With lockdown easing it is not too late to create your own crafts and our haberdashery pieces are sure to help spruce up your home furnishings and wardrobe with an injection of colour...
