Matt began sewing in 2015 when he started up-cycling clothes to sell online. He then got involved in making drag costumes for his friends in the east London drag community. He is completely self taught, learning from online tutorials and pestering friends for advice.
Through his enthusiasm for sewing he decided to apply for the British hit television series ‘The Great British Sewing Bee’. To his surprise he made it onto the show and got through to the final where he made a rather unique dress for his partner Greg, a.k.a Miss Martini.
Matt has recently launched a new website keepbritainsewing.com. The site will feature some simple projects and tutorials to encourage people to develop their sewing skills. Along with an online forum where experienced sewers can share their knowledge and tips with beginners.
