Hobkirks help Heston!
Channel 4 hit the streets of Darwen on Thursday (19th July 2012) to film Heston Blumenthal brewing a huge teapot of tea. But how do we make a huge tea bag? Sew lots of small ones together!
At that point the Channel 4 team made a call to Kathy Hobkirk at Hobkirk Sewing Machines to see if they could assist. In no time at all Hobkirks had Stuart Wearden on his way to Darwen to loan them a sewing machine for the day. Look out for Heston's new series coming soon, particularly the teapot episode!
