Mark’s practical sewing experiences began quite late in life, but his relationship with sewing began when he was a small child. However, needlework was not something that little boys were encouraged to do in the 1980’s.
Many years passed until he found the confidence to finally learn to use a sewing machine, and he discovered his passion for making clothes and costumes. Then, a few years ago, Mark’s husband entered him for the Great British Sewing Bee and life hasn’t been the same since!
Mark now works across the sewing industry, teaching, presenting talks and developing his growing range of sewing patterns.
