Its ten years of Petersfield’s Sewing Bee and the standards were as high as ever.

The entries across the board for this year’s Sewing Bee didn’t fail to impress the judges.

In its tenth year, the entries have been displayed in the shop window at Sew Creative. There were two challenges for the adults and one for the juniors.

Challenge one was very poignant this year; create a pendant of peace to reflect eighty years of the D Day landing and the symbol of peace.

Wendy Piddock was named overall Sewing Bee champion 2024.
