We reckon there are two types of sewers - those that need to sew something (buttons, hems and the dreaded scout or brownie badges), and those for whom sewing is their happy place.
We definitely fit into the 'need to sew' camp in the Tinker and Fix house - but one of our best friends is a champion sewer (she's so good she helped restore the queen's wedding dress). She's tested our Whiteley's fabric scissors and snips to check they are the best. And she recommended Merchant & Mills as a British company she rates. She's currently working her way through the Merchant and Mills books and patterns - and you can check out our Chat to see her results.
