The Great British Sewing Bee 2014 - Bee inspired! 20% off some of the products shown on the show
I’m sure you have all been watching The Great British Sewing Bee. If you haven’t - you are missing some great TV! You can catch up with the current series of the sewing programme by popping over to BBC iPlayer to watch it.
I am a big fan of the show and I really love seeing the projects that each contestant has made. My favourite garment so far has to be the prom dress made by Lynda Lewis. I thought it was stunning! I also loved her Queen Of Hearts dressing up costume as well. It was such a fantastic upcycling project.
You can read an interview with Lynda over on the SLSFirst website - http://slfirst.co.uk/entertainment/stage-theatre-tv/gb-sewing-bees-lynda-lewis,-showing-that-deaf-people-can/
I think the contestants have all worked so hard and they all really deserve their place in the semi-final - which will be airing at 8pm on BBC2 on Tuesday April 1st. I can’t wait to watch the show!
