6 Ways To Get Your Sewing Bee Fix
How awesome is it to have the Great British Sewing Bee back on our screens? We love it! But there is one very big problem…….
We are so used to binge-watching everything we watch these days that waiting A WHOLE WEEK for the next episode is killing us! So, to keep us all topped up whilst we wait it out, we have rounded up all the best places to get your Sewing Bee fix in between episodes.
These sites will keep you chatting, sharing and learning new things about this season of the Bee – and maybe even sewing too!
It looks like the Beeb have been missing the Bee too as they have gone all out this time to share lots of extra information about the show. This is the place to go if you want to find out more about our new host, Joe Lycett, and the fabulous judges, Esme Young and Patrick Grant (swoon).
Plus they have clips from each episode, a gallery of the makes and a detailed profile on each contestant so you can go and read up about your favourite sewist!
As always, Kate and Rachel have got everything covered. Their Facebook page hosts sewing bee chat that starts after each show and often continues through to the next week
They have searched their pattern database to find matches for all the patterns used on the show. They’ll be releasing a YouTube video each week with a full roundup. So if you see something you want to create, you’ll know exactly which pattern you need.
And if the Bee has inspired you to take up sewing as a new hobby, they have a whole host of resources to help you figure out where to start.
William Gee is a family run haberdashery who has taken a more practical approach to their coverage of the Bee. They’ve got you covered for all the tools you might see being used on the show. Their blog has articles about the Tools Of The Trade, Pattern Hacking, Interfacing and Fastenings.
