Sew Excited for a Sewing TV Show!!!

YAY! Another exciting TV show happening in April (the other being the new season of Mad Men)....And that's a lot of TV watching for someone who doesn't actually own a TV.  lol.

Luckily, The Great British Sewing Bee (which is produced by Love Productions, the same folks that made the incredibly popular baking show) will air on BBC2... so I can watch it online!

And do you see sewing superstar Tilly below???  SO EXCITED to see her on TV doing the sewing challenges!!  Also glad they reached out to the online sewing community for inclusion in the show...


You can read more about the show here.  I suspect this will spur a lot more sewing related exposure in the UK which is great because it will hopefully lead to more people dusting off their sewing machines...AND more sewing related businesses!  Huzzah!

  4. Thanks for posting this! Besides Tilly, Ann Romney is an amazing tailor/sewist extraordinaire and I was thrilled to see her amongst the contestants. Can't wait to figure out how to see this. I get BBC and BBCW on my cable network. I will see if it comes on one of these channels here in the States! I'm as excited as you are about this new show!
