The Great British Sewing Bee 2016
Fantastic News! The Great British Sewing Bee will be back on our screens in 2016! Are you up to the challenge of being one a contestant? Fnd out how to apply…
Our favourite time of year has to be when the sewing community is united, sitting on the edge of their seats watching amateur dressmakers vie for the title of winner of The Great British Sewing Bee. The series has inspired so many of you to take up sewing or dust off old sewing machines retired to the attic. Our mission at Love Sewing is to get more people sewing their own clothes with confidence and we’re delighted that the series is going to be back on our screens next year.
From the amazing pictures you send us of your garments, we know that many of our talented readers would make ideal contestants! Can you sew under pressure, could you cope with Patrick Grant leaning over your shoulder while you sew a concealed zip?
To apply head over to the BBC Application page – appearing on The Great British Sewing Bee could be life changing if you want to turn your hobby into a career. Just think of the success of Tilly Walnes of Tilly and the Buttons – now a full time pattern designer, thanks to the boost she got from appearing on the first series of the show!
