Rockers COLDPLAY have revealed the unusual hobby they have taken up to help them unwind on tour - sewing.
Frontman Chris Martin claims the Yellow hitmakers have bonded while stitching their stage costumes, and insists their secret pastime has made them a more tight-knit group.
Martin says, "Making clothes together in our studio makes us feel complete. We probably sound like a group of grannies in a knitting circle but it's the truth and it gives us some control over our visual identity.
"We see if they have a sewing kit in the amenities draw in case we feel inspired.
"When you are a big band and everyone is taking shots at you, the more things you can do together the better.
"And if you're wearing uniforms made by your own hands it helps."

Tonight I have a "sew a tote bag" class. A lot of people told me they wanted to attend. I don't have anyone who have actually enrolled. I have people ask me all the time to run special class. I do want to do what you ask for. I only wish people would enroll when I do have them. If there was some reason why you couldn't attend let me know. If it's a scheduling problem that is keeping people from enrolling I can always accommodate for the next special class (which is a zipper class by the way - check the website for more information)
I had to rock and sew with you,
Until next time.
Enjoy your moments ~ make them "sew" much fun,
