To celebrate the return of Sewing Bee enter our Sports Week giveaway!

Yes The Great British Sewing Bee has returned! To celebrate Simplicity wants to spoil you with a new giveaway every week.

We have FIVE copies of Esme Young’s new book to giveaway to five lucky winners. A celebration of a creative life lived differently, Behind the Seams is a reminder that it’s never too early, or too late to pick up a needle and start stitching in a new direction.

Discover how Esme launched a clothing line called Swanky Modes with three friends and £50 each, watched Notting Hill Carnival with David Bowie, and altered a dress for Cher. From a career move into costumes for films, where she designed outfits for TrainspottingBridget Jones’s Diary and The Beach, before moving onto the small screen herself as the beloved judge of The Great British Sewing Bee.
