Val: We had a great filming day yesterday when Dave, Matt and I were joined by Dawn Cameron-Dick who told us more about her great new book ‘The Pocket Tutor’ and we also filmed a great workshop on her Snuggle Quilt pattern – perfect for groups to swap fabrics as well as using up your own fabric stash – so look out for those in the new year.

We were also joined by a new contributor Steve Weekes who is a Textile Designer who upcycles clothes and other items – fascinating; she was kind enough to give us a short workshop on how to restyle and upcycle a basic black jacket by adding glitz and glamour and then we had a tour of her workshop which is located in Melksham Wilts; for more information (and she runs her own workshops there too); so another one to look out for in the new year
