For the last six years, Jo Watts, and her team at Sew Creative, on Lavant Street, have hosted the Petersfield Sewing Bee competition with various challenges for adult and junior sewers.
This year’s creations have been displayed in the shop’s window to view over the last few weeks – and they looked absolutely amazing.
Our youngest reporter, Nina Vennis, went along to the final on Saturday. She caught up with the winner of the Junior Sewing Bee, 11-year-old Liddy Sobey, and then chatted with Jo Watts and sewing expert and judge of the sewing bee Wendy Gardiner.
Congratulations also to Penny Hearn, who won the adult competition and to our own Nina, who, modestly, forgot to mention her success in the challenge one Junior section for her wellness bag.
