Semi-finalist of BBC2’s Great British Sewing Bee, Stuart Hillard brings his fantastic sense of invention, passion, creativity and style to all things fabric.

Stuart’s first love is sewing for the home – transforming everything from tablecloths, cushions and curtains to garden chairs and quilts. His mission is to make sewing for the home accessible and aspirational, and his message is clear: sewing is for everyone.

He introduces the novice sewer to the basic skills, kit and trimmings and also endeavours to teach even the most experienced sewer a new range of techniques. Ranging from the super-easy, no-sew projects for those who are enthusiastic about fabric but are under-confident, to gorgeous quilts that take a few basic sewing skills, Stuart’s brilliant designs and simple-to-follow approach will help everyone to sew for their own home, their own way.

Join us for coffee and cake as Stuart shares his passion for sewing and textiles, and get some inspiration for transforming your home too!
