I am so excited today because 1. It’s Valentines Day and I’m hanging out with my sweetie, and 2. Season 3 of The Great British Sewing Bee recently premiered! Is anyone else a fan of this show? It’s really great. For those of you who have never watched it before, I highly recommend it. Essentially it’s BBC’s version of a project runway esque show, but with a focus on home sewing vs. couture or runway sewing. While I am a huge fan of both shows, I particularly like The Great British Sewing Bee because the show often includes historical information about the sewing industry, such as where a certain type of fabric is commonly produced, etc. The show also features useful tips, suggestions, and demonstrations for home sewing projects.
I also find the contestants on the show to be more relateable and charming. There’s a lot less drama than on Project Runway, which is refreshing. Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons got her start on Season 1 of the Great British Sewing Bee.
