A business from Chorley is celebrating after winning a national sewing award.

Always Knitting and Sewing, a family-run haberdashery shop on Ashfield Road, has won the award for best customer service at the British Sewing Awards 2021, sponsored by Sew Magazine.

The award recognised their commitment to customers over the past couple of years.

Social Media and marketing manager, Lucy Wood, said they are ‘over the moon’ with the win.

She said: “Our team have worked incredibly hard during the last 12-18 months and this is testament to the dedication we have to providing the best service we possibly can.

“I believe we have been noticed for many reasons, one being the support, knowledge and expertise we are able to offer our customers.”

Lucy continued to explain how the business plans on moving forward after their win.

She said: “We have built a huge online community on Facebook, with over 35,000 followers, where customers are able to share their projects and inspire one another on a daily basis.

“Going forward we plan on creating an online platform full of tutorials and courses, aimed at people who want to start sewing and knitting.”

The business took to their Facebook page to show their appreciation for their customers.

The post read: “A huge thank you to anybody who voted for us, we are so grateful you voted us for best customer service and it means such a lot to us.”
