Finding head space through sewing

An academy dedicated entirely to sewing has seen a surge in people who want to learn.

The classes are held in the Staffordshire town of Leek - once famous for its silk mills - and have had "hundreds" of students come through the door.

Participants say that as well as breathing new life into the skill and pastime, sewing also offers "head space" in a busy world.
