Great British Sewing Bee BBC2 2nd April
Usually all the fun in the sewing world is on the other pond but on 2nd April it is here in the UK namely the Great British Sewing Bee, and the Grand Dame of the Stitchers' Guild Sewing Forum Ann Rowley (far right in pink jumper) is one of the contestants.
The first episode is aired tomorrow night on the British BBC 2 channel and will feature 8 contestants who are required to show off their needlework skills to eventually be crowned the champion.
Advertisements state that the contestants will cover a range of sewing techniques from tailoring to embroidery and the judges are May Martin from the Women's Institute and Patrick Grant a Designer.
This is what they have to do:-
I am really excited, and of course pass on my good luck wishes to Ann.
I'll let you know how it goes
Catch you later............
