For those who have taken my sewing classes you will be familiar with my ‘waxing lyrical’ loudly and often over The Great British Sewing Bee. This fabulous BBC series is a little like Project Runway in format but sooooo much better! It takes regular sewists (that’s you and me!!), young, old, male, female and gives them everyday sewing challenges using everyday models (again that’s you and me kinds!!).
The first series was so popular in the UK that a second, longer, series is now in production and will air next year. Sadly, for those of us here in Australia and those in USA it is not screened on our TV’s. However, thanks to the wonders of the modern techno age we can watch the whole series on youtube.
However, I am so excited to be able to share the Christmas Special for 2013 just released in the UK. It features the four semi-finalists from the first series. If you are like me and love the tension of not knowing the winner till the end (!) watch all the first series episodes before you watch this xmas special.
Until next time, happy sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting and crafting ….
