Tony W Biography – Tony W Wiki
Tony W is a contestant on The Great British Sewing Bee 2023 and a primary school teacher in Essex. He was inspired to try sewing after watching the first Sewing Bee. He started hand sewing, and then bought himself a second-hand pattern for a woman’s halter neck waistcoat.
According to the BBC, he continued to teach himself using vintage ‘easy sew’ patterns, before moving on to more complex patterns. Now, he mainly sews for himself, and goes for big bold fabric patterns for his shirts and tailored waistcoats. Tony is a primary school teacher and in the past, has run a sewing club for the children, as he believes it’s an important life skill. On a Victorian Day, he made himself a 3-piece suit with a fun lining.
Tony is a member of two different croquet clubs, and won a regional singles competition in 2022. Recently, he took up the pipe organ and practises in his local church.
Before learning to sew, Tony was a keen knitter and crocheter, which he still enjoys. He also enjoys cycling and lives with his dog, Mim.
