Create and Craft are excited to announce that sewing & quilting expert Charlotte Newland has joined them to become a Craft Ambassador. Charlotte joins other crafting experts including the ‘The Crafty Beggars’ Wendy Turner-Webster and Julie Peasgood, Mich Turner MBE, Cassie Brown, Sarah Hurley and Sarah Millsop.

Charlotte is an all-round crafter who loves quilting, dressmaking, knitting and crochet. She was taught to sew as a small child by her mum, grandma and school teachers, and now loves to pass her knowledge on to others. Charlotte was the winner of BBC’s Great British Sewing Bee 2016, and lives in London with her husband, kids, pets and sewing machines.

As a Craft Ambassador for Create and Craft, Charlotte will demonstrate as a guest on Create and Craft TV as well as having a strong presence on their social media pages, hosting live Q&A sessions and sharing her hints and tips with followers. Charlotte is also set to be involved with Create and Craft’s ‘Craft Academy’, a super-hub of knowledge and expertise hosted on Create and Craft’s website: www.createandcraft.com/gb/craft-academy

Commenting, Charlotte said: “I am so excited to be joining the team of Create & Craft Ambassadors! I believe that crafting is a wonderful escape from the stresses of daily life, as well as giving a sense of achievement from creating something handmade. I can‘t wait to share my passion with the Create and Craft customers and become part of the family.”

Tony Sheridan, Create and Craft’s CEO, commenting said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Charlotte Newland, a crafter with a multitude of talents, to become a part of the Create and Craft Ambassador family. Create and Craft prides itself on providing a wealth of educational and inspirational content, free of charge to our customers. It is extremely important to us that we are there to help our customers on every step of their creative journey and this would not be possible without the help of our Ambassadors such as Charlotte who inspire and educate our customers.”
