Molly Meets Patrick Grant

Patrick Grant

Well, look who we have here... I have been chatting to none other than Patrick Grant!

At Secret Linen Store, as you can imagine, we all love a bit of stitching , making The Great British Sewing Bee a must watch for us and our children. You can imagine my delight when I got the chance have a chatter with Patrick (who FYI is sleeping under Relaxed Denim Dove Grey & Tiny Stripe Dove Grey sheets at the moment) and luckily he loves to talk all things yarns and threads. Thanks for meeting me Patrick, I was so so very chuffed. Here's what Patrick had to say...

  • Describe your business in 3 words?

Unruly teenage son

  • Instagram or Twitter?

Both. Instagram is treats for the eyes, Twitter more treats for the brain.

  • What's on your bed today?

Next doors cat.

  • What do you wear to bed?

Turnbull & Asser pyjamas and an expression of relief.

  • Who would you invite to your dream midnight feast? dead / alive/ animal?

Jesus. I’d like to think he’d not drop crumbs.

  • How do you like your eggs in the morning?

Poached, sourdough toast, salt, hot sauce

  • Cleansheet Friday or Cleansheet Sunday? (Harriet and I disagree)

I am a man, I have no idea what you're talking about.

  • Flat sheet or fitted sheet?

I am ashamed to say fitted. It seems against all of my principles.

  • Do you have a bedtime ritual? Can you share it with us?

I make sure I carefully extinguish my pipe.

  • You're off for a weekend camping. What one luxury would you take from your bedroom?

I don't believe in luxuries whilst camping. I consider a tent virtually cheating.

  • Tell us a secret?

Absolutely not. Discretion is fundamental to the tailors oath.

  • Who should Molly meet next?

Someone more interesting than me
