The Great British Sewing Bee is looking for new participants

If you,or someone you know, is a brilliant sewer then apply now! The closing date is Monday 24th May 2021.

The team behind the programme is looking for the next collection of talented home sewers to showcase their skills on the 8th series of The Great British Sewing Bee.

They are closely following government guidelines but are still able to look for talented amateur sewers to take part when the show returns.


If you are interested get in touch with them:

    Jane, I read the message before reading the heading. Honestly, I read “sewer” as in waste disposal. Obviously a Karen moment.
    But I’m better now. Kx

    Hi Karen, yes I thought it was an odd choice of words – unless they wanted to provoke discussion. Perhaps ‘needleworkers’ is too long for them.
