Singer teams up with Sewing Bee Champion Matt Chapple

Singer Sewing Machines has announced that it is teaming up with Great British Sewing Bee winner Matt Chapple to produce a series of exclusive projects for the brand

The projects will be made available for anyone to access via Singer’s Facebook and Twitter feeds, Singer's UK website and via Matt’s own blog. The first project will be published towards the end of June.

“I’m very happy to be working with such a globally prominent sewing brand like Singer,” says Matt, who started sewing when he was in the army aged 16.

 “We've planned some fun and exciting projects together to inspire the home sewing community to plug in their sewing machines and join in with us. We also hope people will share the results of any projects that they try with Singer and myself.”

"Singer as a brand has been synonymous with sewing since 1851 and everything they do is aimed at capturing the creativity and fun that people can have when they use their machine,” explains Singer’s Howard Robinson.
