John, who is also the chairman of Tring Yarn Bomb, recently found out that he had won the award for Best Independent Haberdashery shops in the East of England and was highly commended in the Top Sewing Workshop category.

Sew magazine are the industry leader in all things sewing and for the last several years they have awarded awards in numerous categories for the best in the world of sewing.

John said: "I started my shop two years ago and this was my second nomination for best shop.

"I can't believe I have won. It's quite extraordinary really, especially the teaching one, as that's all done on zoom now.

"It's nice to be recognised for what you do. The people who chose the award winners are the general public so it is a huge honour for me to have been voted as winner and highly commended in the other section.

"I want to do more of the same, continue to teach and try and get more people into quilting."
