It’s week two of the Great British Sewing Bee and I want to talk about the tools of the trade and how you can win one of the staples to any sewing kit – a pair of Fiskars 21cm All Purpose scissors!

Anyone that comes to the Studio knows that I believe strongly that you need to have the best tools you can afford to be able to sew with joy. Nothing is worse than thread that snaps all the time (or leaves “thread dust” all over your machine), needles that are blunt and plastic headed pins that melt when touched by an iron. My favorite go-to scissors are Fiskars – we use them here in the Studio and I recommend them to the students in our beginning sewing workshop All You Need to Know to Sew. And now you have a chance of winning a pair – just watch the video below (my daughter Sydney watched last week and stepped in to do the production this time – have a look!) and please, start sharing!

Good luck!
