Top Ten Reasons I Love The Great British Sewing Bee

Ooooh, I haven't kept up here about the Great British Sewing Bee (GBSB). It's been the most fun television program ~ competition ~ reality show that I've ever seen. 
Two of the finalists are shown here.
In no particular order, here are my top ten eleven reasons to love this program, which has been renewed! 
  1. It's about sewing.
  2. It's about garment sewing.
  3. The contestants are all delightful.
  4. The judges are experts in their fields.
  5. The judges are kind and helpful with their comments.
  6. Back to the contestants. They are genuinely interested in focusing on the challenge in front of them.
  7. The narrator, by her commentary, helps viewers to understand the details about what the contestants are doing and why.
  8. The challenges actually relate to garment sewing.
  9. The videography is excellent, frequently zooming in and showing "up close and personal" the stitches and techniques that the contestants are using.
  10. They chose the same person that I would have as the winner.
  11. I love the prize. Just love it.

  1. I can't believe how much I loved GBSB! It is so unlike reality/competition shows in the US. This is the show I thought Project Runway would be when I first watched it.

    1. Hi Elaray, I hear ya, and I totally agree with your every word. The drama in GBSB is real. In fact, if I were sewing in those circumstances (especially the time constraints), there would be even more drama than they showed. Goodness, it takes me more than an hour, sometimes more than a week, just to decide on the fabric! LOL Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a great comment (where great = same as me haha).

  2. It was such a fabulous series, I loved every single minute of it!!!!

    1. Hi Ruthie, I completely agree, and I think it is having a positive effect on people's interesting in sewing: "Maybe I can do that! I think I'll give it a try!" Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment; I know how busy you are.
