in Vintage Sewing

Television company Love Productions has been in touch on their quest for UK-based sewing enthusiasts to take part in a new BBC2 Sewing Series called the Great British Sewing Bee.

If you’re a dab hand with a needle (and I know you are!) and fancy your 15 minutes of fame while doing your bit to spread a love of sewing, I think it would be fabulous to see a WeSewRetro-er representing the vintage sewing community.

You can find an application form here or contact Love Productions direct (020 7067 4822 / to learn more.

If you decide to apply and get selected, be sure to let us know so we can tune in!

I'm the editor at WeSewRetro so don't hesitate to get in touch with any problems or questions. In addition to keeping the good ship WeSewRetro afloat, I do an amateurish but enthusiastic job of raising a daughter, teach university professors how to dominate a computer by day and study for a masters in literature at night. My daily coffee consumption would kill a small horse. I'm having a clandestine relationship with bias binding and my idea of hell is turning a spaghetti strap right side out.

My skills wouldn’t be up to standard (I handsew rather than machine so it would end up a veeerry long show)….but if its anywhere as good as the great british bake off, I’ll be watching. :)
