Our competition winners!

At the Great British Sewing Bee show in London and the Thread show in Farnham last month we shared three competitions with some fab prizes up for grabs, including an exclusive 1-to-1 sewing session with our founder, Lisa Falconer.

The competitions have now closed and we’re super excited to announce the two winners in each category. Please scroll down to see if you have been a winner.

Didn’t win? Don’t worry! The Avid Seamstress team is giving you another chance to win a sewing prize. If you managed to grab one of our limited edition pink Avid Seamstress badges at the Great British Sewing Bee show, you’re in luck. Just take a picture of yourself wearing your badge (before 15 October) post on our social media tagging us, and we’ll pick our favourite photo. The winner will receive an Avid Seamstress sewing pattern of their choice.

and the winners are…
