About Tweedy Gromett

Julie Gromett, fresh from being kicked off the Sewing Bee, decided to create her own Tweedy business with her innovative ideas on tweeding babies and mixing top quality cottons with tweeds. Bursting with passion and enthusiasm, she found local tailors to partner with her in a mission to tweed the world. And so Tweedy Gromett was born.

Julie with her designs and her drive to succeed, and her tailors with their precision cutting, together they turn the vision of Tweedy Gromett into reality with brilliant machining skills and the ever important attention to detail. Together they are a formidable team and in Julies words, living the dream.

Julie learnt to sew around 2009, more out of necessity than a burning desire. Her daughter was a ballroom dancer and dresses were becoming more difficult to get hold of and more importantly, more expensive. Julie being julie, thought she would have a go at making them herself and so signed up for a dressmaking course. Her daughter packed up dancing, but Julie was left with the legacy of being able to sew. she never looked back. Buying clothes always posed a problem for Julie as she is by her own admission "shapeless and sadly "short".

She loved tweed but could never find any in the style she wanted.she felt completely liberated when she could finally wear clothes that actually fit,making everything from skirts, trouser, shirts and ties. It was then she decided to apply for the BBC2's Great British Sewing Bee she was chosen from thousands of applicants after a series of interviews screen tests and sewing challenges.
