When The Great British Sewing Bee started with its 1st series back in 2013, we were obviously very excited. Now the Sewing Bee is back for a 3rd series, and we can’t wait to see what the new group of designers come up with as the weeks progress.
As lovers of all things traditional, it was really encouraging to see how inspired the nation gets throughout the weeks by the contestants’ projects. It’s also fantastic to see people revisiting old skills of their own.
The first week’s episode focuses on cotton, and one of our best selling products for finishing seams is our cotton bias binding, which we offer in an abundance of colours. You can even keep the scraps and make bunting afterwards! If you’re experimenting with cotton yourself, or have a certain print or colour you’d like to include, why not make your own binding? We stock Prym bias tape makers, in a range of sizes- perfect for adding that personal touch to your experiments!
