Matt Chapple


A bloke who sews to BBC TV shows, now blogging craft projects and designing sewing kits for all

It all started with a friend mentioning that there was a TV show about sewing. My journey then moved at lightning speed; I submitted an application form, completed the audition, and was ACCEPTED! Over six weeks I created eighteen garments, saving my best stitching for my wife, Gemma, in the final, where, amazingly, I was crowned the
winner of The Great British Sewing Bee 2015!

We have now launched our family run business, one that believes in creative play, exploring the world around us and enjoying an active life.

Our aim is to bring crafting, playing and sewing together to help people to make fantastic handmade creations. From here, the SEW-A-SAURUS was created.

All our products are designed and produced by us in Britain. We are learning all the time, and we are excited about the future, especially with you by our side! Continue having fun with us at:
