This is a great opportunity to make a shirt or a pair of trousers with the pattern designer.

Mark Francis, who you may recognise from The Sewing Bee in 2020, says that he started sewing quite late in life; which probably makes him sound older than he actually is! 

Three years ago, Mark's husband Clive applied for him to enter the Great British Sewing Bee, Mark never thought he would get through, but he did and life hasn’t been the same since.  Mark says that the time he had in the sewing room, working alongside such an incredible bunch of creative, enthusiastic and hardworking individuals, both in front of and behind the camera, gave him the push he needed to be able to change his life and refocus on the things I love the most. 

This includes having a website, designing a pattern range, teaching at shows and demonstrating on Sewing Street TV.

On this workshop, Mark is happy for you to choose to make either of his shirt Patterns or his new McCoy Trouser pattern.  Alternatively, you could also choose to use Mark's new pattern which includes t a Baker Boy Hat, tie & cravat
