Let’s see which of you eagle eyes can spot me! Clue: I could not compete with Claudia on the fringe front, so I waited until after the show to have it cut.
So yeah, as a friend of mine just said, now that I have been ‘outed’ as a contestant of the Great British Sewing Bee (a sewing version of the Great British Bake Off, or the sewing Masterchef, for those in other countries), I should come out on my blog too. So ta dah, here’s me sewing on the BBC, or rather, if we go by the trailer, running, panicking and tearing up fabric (no, not in disgust because it wasn’t sustainable).
I can’t even begin to tell you how it was, but, bearing in mind that they show about 10% of what was filmed, can you imagine how intense, stressful, yet fun and mad it was? I might be spilling more beans as we go along on Twitter, @sewrendipity.
Best thing evs: my super awesome amazing bee friends, that I will love forever. They taught me that sewing people are the nicest, most supportive people and gave me the push to put myself out there and start the blog. So sewing people, please keep to your reputation and be as nice to us all after the show airs too :).
If you fancy watching us lot on the telly, the first episode is on BBC2 on Thursday 5th Feb at 8PM and after that on the iPlayer.
