We were so lucky to have been chosen to host a book signing with Stuart Hillard who was a finalist on the 1st series of the Great British Sewing Bee in 2013.

Few people realise that Stuart is  keen quilter and actually only applied for the show thinking it wasn’t going to be about dressmaking! In fact he nearly backed out when they told him they were switching the format to entirely dressmaking. We are so glad he didn’t!

Stuart brought with him some of his amazing quilts and talked about them to a group of our customers who were keen to hear all about his tips on quilting larger projects.

Then he took the time to talk to everyone who came to buy his great new book called “Sew Fabulous”  which explains how to decorate and embellish every room in the house – even the garden!  ‘Sew Fabulous’ features over 40 fun and fabulous patterns for everything from covered headboards, bolster cushions, tablecloths, napkins, aprons, pretty coat hangers and bunting.
