Joe Lycett will be hosting the new GBSB show which is back on BBC2 for a 5th series. To keep us all entertained over the weeks, we will be introduced to 10 of Britain’s top amateur sewers, competing in three challenges to test their sewing skills, time management and ability to cope under pressure. Presented by Joe Lycett, the sewers will be scrutinised by expert judges, (now confirmed) Patrick Grant and Esme Young, as they tackle three commonplace, but often notoriously tricky, fabrics.
It’s a great show which provides inspiration, hints and tips and most of all MOTIVATION to finally dust off the sewing machine and delve into the wondrous depths of home sewing!
