Uckfield’s TV sewing enthusiast Jade Earley will be appearing at The Great British Sewing Bee Live show in London from Thursday, September 21 to Sunday, September 24.
She will be joining contestants from the programme’s four seasons to showcase her talents.
The event will include a 1,200 seat Super Theatre where there will be a BBC Children In Need Celebrity Special hosted by Jenny Eclair and featuring TV judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young.
A packed schedule of workshops and demonstrations is planned, and Jade will be showing off her pattern matching skills live on the Super Theatre stage.
Jade said: “I’m passionate about sewing and can’t wait to show everyone how satisfying it is to make your own clothes.”
Other highlights include a gallery of garments from the TV programme, a dressmaking drop-in clinic, a dressmaking fashion catwalk by the world’s leading pattern companies, an exhibition by the Fashion and Textile Museum celebrating the 140th anniversary of Liberty in Fashion, and shopping with more than 100 dressmaking and sewing suppliers under one roof.
Jade has recently achieved five distinctions in her Level 3 Art and Design qualifications from Sussex Downs College, Eastbourne, and is now working for fashion designer LOM Fashion. She has her own sewing website, blog and YouTube channel and runs an online haberdashery.
