Who would have thought the this would capture the heart of the nation? I watched it last night and I have to say I was glued. I loved that all of the contestants gelled together and I even watched on while Jenni helped Julie out to turn her garment the right way, I love that we have 3 men in the sewers and the passion they all have in the textiles and patterns.
Pushing the boundaries making things that are out of their comfort zone, we as crafters do that and we know how scary it is yes?
Amongst all the daily drudge of misery and woe and meaningless dribble that we watch on TV there is a ray of sunshine in this glorious program, I simply cannot wait for next Tuesday evening at 8pm on BBC2.
The Presenter Claudia Winkleman doesn't pretend to know a thing about sewing and delights in the achievements of the sewers, encouraging and praising along the way.
The Judges May Martin from the Women's Institute and Savile Row's Patrick Grant are fair but firm explaining their decisions.
Each from different skill levels and backgrounds and I have already got a couple of favourites.
Are you watching? if not you must, it is a feel good program and you will love it.
