Exciting News: Matt & Singer team up to produce exclusive sewing projects

Sew What’s New is very excited to announce that I will be working with Singer Sewing Machines to produce a series of exclusive sewing projects.  Each month we will release a new project which will feature here on the blog, plus the UK Singer website  You will also be able to follow us on the Sew What’s New or SingersCo facebook page and twitter feeds.

I’m really very happy to be working with such a prominent sewing brand like Singer, that is recognised all round the globe.  We have planned some fun and exciting projects together to inspire you to plug in your sewing machine and join in the fun with us. We would love it if you would share the results of any projects that you try with me and Singer.

“Singer as a brand has been synonymous with sewing since 1851 and everything we try to do is aimed at capturing the sheer joy of creativity and the fun that people can have when they take out their machine,” explains Singer’s Howard Robinson.  “Nobody sums up that sense of fun more than Matt and, given that more than three million people watched him come through and win on the Great British Sewing Bee, we hope they will enjoy following the projects that he is putting together for us.”

The first joint project will be released at the end of June so please stay tuned in.

The stitcher. A magnet for foolery & prankster at heart. Loves being creative, whether with some wood and a saw or with a needle and thread. Attempts to disguise his past time activities as manly pursuits, but is actually pretty handy at sewing!

    Congratulations Matt. I have been a sewer since I was very young. Sewing is cool and always pride myself, when I go out I have sewn everything I am wearing. I have also taken sewing classes and love sharing my knowledge and experience with others keen to start sewing.

      Hey Janice,
      I wish I’d started earlier like you did. But being a lad and sewing wasn’t “cool” so I was never inclined to give it a try. I really hope the generation coming through now don’t feel like I did.
      You should be so proud of what you make. I burst with pride when Gems wears something I’ve made her, and when she gets complimented it makes me smile a little bit bigger.
      Keep up the great work and spreading that sewing love and knowledge.

  3. Brilliant news Matt! Looking forward to the projects. I have nearly always made “things” (bags, cushions, stuff for inanimate objects!) that don’t need to fit anything… you’ve inspired me to have another go at clothing. But is a tailor’s dummy/mannequin essential? or just nice to have?

      Hi Julie,
      It really makes me so happy when someone feels inspired or willing to give something a/another go from looking at the site. You’ve made my day.
      I’d say a tailors dummy is a nice to have, and I tend not to use it massive amount to be honest. But then again I make mainly for Gemma and other people, so they are my tailors dummies :)
      Why not have a go at some summer skirts/dresses and do a reasonable amount of trying on yourself before shelling out a hundred quid or so on some nice, what may become, room furniture ;o)
      I really hope you keep it going and please feel free to share any results.
