John Spencer Textiles had the pleasure of welcoming Patrick Grant, who is best known for being a judge on the BBC The Great British Sewing Bee, into their Lancashire cotton mill.
John Spencer Textiles is a family owned weaving business making a wide range of fabrics in a diverse selection of yarns and raw materials. They are proud creators of fabrics in their own mill and to be able to genuinely labelled all their products as “Made in Britain”.
Committed to preserving traditional crafts and skills in the unique industrial landscape in which they live, they have much in common with Patrick Grant. Although maybe best know from the BBC’s Great British Sewing Bee, Patrick Grant is also a fashion designer and creative director of bespoke tailors Norton & Sons and E. Tautz.
Patrick is a huge supporter of the British textile industry. In 2016 he set up Community Clothing, which is a project based in Blackburn that aims to make excellent quality affordable clothes for men and women, as well as create secure jobs for skilled workers and restore stability for those within the British textile industry.
