community matters

I’m always really humbled by how lovely sewists are and how great they are at working together. From The Fold Line launching Tribe (p9), a new pattern company allowing members to become designers, to the lovely bunch of winners I met at Singer’s sewing session with Patrick Grant (p13). And yes, before you ask, he’s utterly charming in real life too. So, to celebrate our flourishing community we’ve added sewing categories to our British Craft Awards (p8). Vote today! PS: BONUS FABRIC WORTH £35 when you subscribe (see p32)…

sewing with patrick grant

He’s a fashion designer, entrepreneur and judge on the television series, The Great British Sewing Bee, but Patrick Grant still made sure he had plenty of time to spend with the winners of Singer’s latest competition. Last month, at their London HQ, the lucky sewists were treated to an informal sewing session with the tailor himself, complete with individual Sewing Bee-style feedback at the end! “It’s amazing to look at how many people have got back into sewing,” he said. “I think people get great delight from making something permanent,” he added.
