You could have knocked me down with a feather! Out of the blue, we were contacted by researchers working on a feature for BBC1's Morning Live programme. They wanted to film my story of how I had turned my hobby into a successful business.
After a manic few days tidying up the workshop and dress shopping, I welcomed the cameras into my little workshop in Darlington. The presenter Jackie Joseph along with 2 cameramen spent the full day with me, filming different aspects of what I did as well as talking to me about how and why I had started the business.
It was an amazing experience and one that I am exceptionally proud of. A lot of what was filmed ended up on the cutting room floor, but my passion and love for what I do shone out.
Thank you BBC and thank you Jackie Joseph
