Ooh goody. I really enjoy this programme don't know why you would be hard pushed to find a less talented sewer than me but I find it inspiring that there are such clever people out there.

I was so looking forward to the first episode of the new series, only to find it was a cobbled together repeat of the last series. :evil:

I do find it very inspiring though. :D

I watched all the latest series and really loved it.
I think one of the best aspects for me is how genuinely the contestants and presenters gel and how the love of sewing comes above the competitive element. Every episode, there were examples of the contestants pausing their own work to help each other, to explain things or demonstrate. I loved that.
I thought all three finalists were super, though I was supporting one from the first show, and was surprised he seemed to completely stumble in the final show and didn't win. But honestly, would have been happy for any of the finalists to win, or better yet for it to be a three-way draw!
Such a lovely lovely show.

They have announced that Claudia will be replaced by Joe Lycett. Joe is lovely but it will be very different!

You seem to be right

It really annoys me the way the BBC give you weeks of trailers then only add in the date a few days before

Joe Lycett is a tall gentle but funny comedian from Birmingham. He’s a poppet but may be even less clued up on sewingthan Claud. Can’t quite envisage it but there have been no reports of a couture based WW3 so we shall see. He is one of life’s peace makers, so that may help. I’ve made him sound a bit dumb - he isn’t

So what did we think?

I thought the Lycett lad did well, I thought probably the right one went, but they were still better than the first discard from previous series

i agree, a lovely hour of gentle entertainment. I think Joe did very well, and Patrick is always so nice. And what a lovely bunch of people taking part.

Inspiring as always, made me want to find more time to sew. Really enjoyed it, I think the new chap seemed very nice to them all.

I really enjoyed last night
Patrick’s demonstration of pogoing was unexpectedly entertaining

I made maxi dresses, though less floaty than most of those

My sewing machine was always out back then, clothes for the children, clothes for me, curtains, blinds, cushion covers etc ... but I had space for a sewing area back then ... and a huge farmhouse table for cutting out on ... but I’m sure it’d be easier (and cheaper) to make clothes I like than find them in the shops ...
