Sewing bees!!!

 Let’s face it – the British are a wonderful lot. They are very creative in their TV shows and I was recently introduced to another neat show that I think you will enjoy! It’s called The Great British Sewing Bee. I believe there are three Seasons, but there are only four episodes in the first season. I haven’t had a chance to see all the episodes yet, but the bottom line – they are looking for the best home sewist. It is interesting because in each episode the contestants  (they started with eight) have three challenges in the first week. They have to make a garment from a pattern (I know – that sounds easy, but many of them struggled with the tasks), they have to alter a purchased garment (those are fun) and the third challenge is to make a garment but it has to fit a live model.
