Hi guys! It’s my birthday today, so I’m taking the day off to stay home and sew. It’s my present to myself, and of course my lovely husband will take care of treating me as well. But I am generous like that, and I actually have a present for you as well.

The word came out earlier in the year that there will be a Great British Sewing Bee live show in September this year and I can now confirm I will also be taking part. I will be doing some demos and other activities yet to be revealed, along with my dear Bee friends. Paul from my series and Angeline, Joyce, Jamie, Tracey and Jade from series 4, as well as Tamara from series 2, are all doing workshops and you can book your place here.

A slightly usual post today, but I went to see this exhibition at the weekend, and my phone died while I was there, and I couldn’t provide minute by minute reports on Twitter or pictures on Instagram. So how about a blog post instead? Unfortunately, the exhibition closed on Sunday, so you won’t be able to visit, but I hope to inspire you to keep an eye on this amazing museum’s next events.
