We need you to #tell the bobbin who's boss!

Before the summer sun caught us all out - in a truly nice way - we'd been thinking how we could get you all sewing just that little bit more. Our conquer your sewing machine course is like a bed of confessions such as "I was scarred at senior school and told I was no good at sewing" and cries of "I've got a machine, but it's never been out of it's box". Well we're putting an end to all that!

We want you to sew, sew sew your way through the winter and use those precious skills you've learnt on your very first course with us and take control with our new competition #tellthebobbinwhosboss. And what better way to do it than to entice you with crafty goodies!

Win a gorgeous Parisian sling bag and a pretty patchwork cushion in Amy Butler fabrics, but also a whole years subscription to the very fab Crafty magazine and some beyond perfection Fiskars scissors which should last you your whole sewing life.

So what so you need to do?

Simply send us a picture of your handiwork project to, which can be either hand sewn or machine stitched, with you name and the course you attended.

We'll then ask our prestigious judge, Sarah Adie, Editor of Crafty magazine to let us know which entry stands out from the rest and then we'll be in touch if you're the winner! The competition closes at midnight on Saturday 30 September.

Anything goes as long as it's stitched, so put your imagination to good use or if you just want to to get making have a look at out favourite beginners tutorials at the top right of the page.

Good luck and can't wait to see you entries!
