The Great British Sewing Bee is back on our screens for 2019! It will return on 12th February, with new presenter Joe Lycett stepping into Claudia Winkleman’s shoes. Take a look at the new trailer.

Patrick Grant, Esme Young and Joe Lycett from the Great British Sewing Bee

Did you spot the wiggle dress? Fancy joining in and making your own? You can find some amazing wiggle dress patterns online. Check out our Pinterest board for some fun patterns and fabrics –

These dresses work really well in Jersey fabrics, but if you’re a little less experienced, cotton is a really good starting point that is easy to work with.

If you really are inexperienced, but are inspired by the Great British Sewing Bee to have a go at some of the simpler projects and learn the basics, we have a GBSB inspired evening class coming up at the end of March. This class will really help you master your sewing machine and create some fabulous items with a variety of techniques. It’s only a small class size, so make sure to book in quickly!

Crafting Holiday at Home

Every now and then I get asked to write the blog for Tudor Rose Patchwork.  I’m not a great blogger, my daughter knows more than I do and she’s only 14.  But then you expect a 14 year old to be a technological wizard.

I might not be a technological wiz, but I can craft.  In fact I love to create and make.  So much so that I decided to treat myself to a week off work.  The children were still and school and the husband was out at work and I had the luxury of 5 days to please myself crafting.  The washing machine did go on but there was not one garment ironed – apart from the quilt I was working on.

As well as having my sewing machine out to work on my quilt, I had yarn on the coffee table to crochet, my Pfaff Creative 1.5 embroidery machine was running 1400 stitches per minute and I finished a beaded parure.

According to Wikipedia, a parure typically consists of a combination of a matching necklace, earrings, brooch, bracelet and often a diadem or tiara.  Well mine was a mini or demiparure:  necklace, earrings and bracelet.  It was a huge project but the feeling of joy when I completed the last beaded toggle was immense.


So you have an idea of what my living space looked like.  The dining table, which when extended seats 14, was piled high.  It was so nice being able to leave everything out ready for the next day, knowing that I was coming straight back to it and not having to put things away until who knew when.

I loved being able to leave the embroidery machine set up.  It does take up quite a bit of room and I don’t have a dedicated crafting space so leaving it on the dining table for a week was marvellous.  Christmas is coming and I treated myself to a few Christmas designs.  I now have a set of 8 pristine, white napkins, each with a different design and in a different colour. 

My daughter chose purple as the colour scheme for our Christmas tree this year so we now have 5 white and purple embroidered felt decorations.  And finally, I nearly burnt out the engine creating lace bookmarks and a lace lantern.

It was a really wonderful week.  The downside, all the house work to catch up on.

Sewell & Savill Experience


What an amazing day!  Jon, Beccs and I joined two other ladies in a class with Laura from Sewell & Savill using embroidery machines.  We sell embroidery machines here at Tudor Rose Patchwork and although we knew the basics, we really didn’t know how wide a range of techniques there are and how many different things can be made so simply.

I’ve been blown away by how much an embroidery machine can do.  We looked at 10 different projects.  We made a fancy button hole, complex designs using metallic threads, we discovered the tricks of the trade for lettering.  We used embroidery designs to quilt, we learnt how to make a log cabin pattern.  We made lace flowers and attached them to our sampler cushion.  We explored applique and created a pretty reverse applique adding sequin embellishments.  We made chenille trim and a decorative pattern using eyelets.

The whole day was a lovely experience.   Not just because we were learning from a highly experienced tutor.  The day was run in easy sessions broken up with tea and biscuits, a nice lunch – although we did find it hard to tear ourselves away from the machines.  And just when we were starting to flag, we were treated to tea and cake.

Not only do you get everything during the day, but Laura sends all the tips and tricks to you by email so you have them to refer back to at your leisure.

If you have any questions at all, whether it be about buying an embroidery machine or attending a class with Laura to learn how to do more with a machine you already own, please get in touch.  You can visit us in store, give us a call on 01234 824983 or email us on
