Are you a Bee watcher?

2013 April 17

OMG, I just adore and am obsessed with The Great British Sewing Bee.  I. Love. It.

I stayed up late last night obsessively refreshing my YouTube search for the latest episode until it showed up around 12pm PT.  I stayed up way too late to watch it too.

I love the format with it’s focus on skills.  I just wish all the contestants could be allowed to remain on the show to the end.  If they used a point system, it would totally work.

Here’s the latest episode.  If you haven’t seen this show, skip work and watch it.  Really!

Happy watching!

    I email BBC America to see if it could be included in their programming. I am in love.

    You are right. This last episode was amazing and as much as I like Stuart I’m glad the three women are left. I almost don’t want the producers in America to get their hands on it. They will probably change the format – the thing we all love about it…so as much as I would love to see an American version, the fear of a Project Runway type sewing show scares the bejesus out of me. That said I can’t wait for the finale…and I hope that Ann wins! Go TEAM ANN!

    Love this show! Better than Project Runway. In fact, my sister who doesn’t sew is super addicted too. Thanks for posting the link to the third episode – I am going to watch it right away.

    I’m from the UK and watch it as it’s shown on TV, there’s a huge twitter buzz as the programme airs, some great comments & conversations!
    I absolutely love it and it’s such a shame here’s only 4 episodes, think the BBC wanted to see if it was popular first, I’m so hoping they’ll do a 2nd series with a longer run. The child mannequin/dressforms they used to make the girls dresses in ep 3 are just too cute!

    Yes, and what a cliffhanger this week. Who hasn’t lost a piece of a pattern? And she thought the game was up. She was so sweet the way she cried without disturbing the others! And then what a GREAT jacket. The filming and cutting ( of the film) is superb. And that thing about the “chest floats” or whatever – I so needed to know that!

    I love watching it! I’m so glad I don’t sew to a time limit – yikes! The pressure! I have to walk away when things aren’t going well. I love that they’re real folks, not professionals, and that it’s a test of increasing skill with each project. Did you see Ann’s granny square scarf? I want one!

    Keep it up my Stateside friends! We need loads of people who support this programme so that the BBC will make another series.
    I’m sort of surprised it is so popular around the world – good to see.

    YES! When I finally realized it was on you tube, I was obsessed with watching it…watched it in bed, watched it at work, watched it at the gym. And now it’s over and I’ll miss those cheeky comments and wonderful accents talking about this bit and that bit!
