It sounds like there might not be another series of the sewing bee.
I'd already heard a rumour from sewing friends, but have now seen this article.

There is as always a petition, if you like that kind of thing!

I'll be sad if they don't do another series. It's about as far as I can stand down the reality TV route, because although it has my most hated long pauses for judges decisions, it is at least friendly rather than uber competitive.
