We kick off the week long celebrations with a special event on Thursday 15th September
A talk with Gill Thomas, the one armed sewist (as she likes to be known), from this year's Great British Sewing Bee. I've teamed up with Gill, from Doncaster, to give you the opportunity to hear her spectacular story. Not only about sewing and her journey on the Great British Sewing Bee but also about finding courage and facing fears in life. So we could be accessible to all the event will be held externally at the gorgeous Boston & Co. café at Bentley Pavilion on Thursday September 15th. There are two sessions to choose from, 3.30pm arrival for a 4pm start or, 6.30pm arrival for a 7pm start. I'm really looking forward to hearing from Gill and there will be chance to ask her questions at the end so write down any ideas you may think of.
