Profile of Lauren Guthrie

Lauren Guthrie

Guthrie & Ghani
West Midlands

I have always loved sewing since I was a child and my Mum taught me how to sew.

She was a dressmaker and worked from home so there was always lots of sewing paraphernalia around the house. About 8 years ago I really got back into sewing my own clothes as I just couldn’t find the quality that I wanted on the high street anymore. I loved it so much that I decided to change career and set up my own fabric shop and and sewing studio. While setting the business up I was a finalist on the first series of the BBC’s The Great British Sewing Bee. My shop and studio space, Guthrie & Ghani, started welcoming customers and teaching workshops in our Birmingham shop in 2013 and I haven’t looked back since. I love sharing my makes on my blog
