Tuesday 14 December 2021: In part 2, Simon talks about the sewing community and he’s quite inspiring.
Thursday 9 December 2021: Simon Turner @madebysilverfox is a new sewist. He counters the saying ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’. He’s a part of the SewOver50 community and one of the men who sew.
In this first episode his sewing skill story centres around a family market umbrella that he hand sewed to stop the fabric from deteriorating any further. Restoring this umbrella has led to Simon investing in his sewing skills.
He shares his sewing skills for sewing his own clothes as well as for his family and friends.
Simon has been sewing for 2 years. This is his Covid skill.
