Marni Miller On The Great British Sewing Bee
Marni Miller is one of the contestants. According to her bio, she has been sewing for 35 years and has a signature style, and loves using recycled clothing and charity shops. Marni adopts a signature style using unique embellishments such as discarded feathers combined with recycled clothing and charity shop finds.

Other fellow contestants joining her are Man Yee from Hong Kong, Annie from Surrey, Cristian from London, Brogan from Derbyshire, Mitch Cumbria, Steve from Newcastle, 50-year-old Debra, Richy from Shropshire, Gill who has been sewing for only three years, Chichi from Somerset, and Angela from Lancashire.
The episode began with the Pattern Challenge, which required the sewers to create a small skirt with two patch pockets and piping around the edge. They had to manufacture the skirt out of Yorkshire wool from the haberdashery, which was heaped high, and they could either make their piping or choose from a ready-made variety.
The contestants had 2 hours and 45 minutes to make their creations, with Esme dispensing the warning: “The pockets will need to be symmetrical because if they’re not, we’ll notice.”
The winner of the first challenge was Angela followed by Marni coming in second, and Brogan in third. The second challenge was the Transformation Challenge where they were instructed to be creative and use their imagination. It was Marnie’s ’80s style top that won them over.
After placing 1st, Marnie said: “I am surprised, I am a child of the ’80s! Sometimes I feel like I’m not inventive but I’ve done OK so far.”
In the first episode, Mitch was the contestant to be sent home.
