I’m sure that many of you, like me, are guilty of sewing over pins.
No matter how many times I’ve been told of the error of my ways, sometimes it is just easier to keep two pieces of fabric firmly together until I’ve finished sewing them.
I know that I risk breaking my needles, that it effects the quality of the stitches and is a “bad” thing to do, but I defy the sewing police by secretly doing it anyway.
I recently managed to get to see the “The Great British sewing Bee Christmas Special”, and spotted this…
Needless to say I was shocked! This was shown on British TV without any parental warning and at a time when young children were likely to be exposed to this travesty! British TV has obviously sunk to a new low.
And the offending sewist?
None other than May Martin!
Does this mean that I can come out into the open and admit my shameful secret?
Is anyone else prepared to come out of the closet and admit to sewing over pins, now that May Martin has done so in public?
