Aaaaaaaaaaahhh! Aaaaaahhhhh! And other assorted screaming….

The production company behind The Great British Sewing Bee is making an American version and they would love to find some people who sew vintage. In other words, you!

I’m so incredibly excited about this I might explode. For goodness sake, if you’ve entertained the idea of being on the show for even a millisecond, apply by sending an email and current picture to sewingcasting@loveproductionsusa.com! Are you going to apply? Let us know in the comments…

I would love to but alas do not live in the tri state area they are searching for. I hope it’s as good as Britain’s!

Oh, sounds fun! Do we know which tri-state area? NY? I wish I could apply, but I’m not in a tri-state area at all. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tri-state_area

Yes, I think they’re filming in NY. But if you’re able to travel….?

Please don’t ruin it … please don’t ruin it … please don’t ruin it …

Is it even possible for an American version of this to exist without spoiling what makes the “bees” great? That is, a gentle, friendly attitude, prevailing niceness among the contestants, an incredibly earnest outlook, kindly judges, hilarious – but in no way mean-spirited – hosting? Hah.

I’d love to be proven wrong, though.
