Great British Sewing Bee is a new interesting reality series on BBC2, where amateur sewers take on challenges as they compete to be named Britain´s best home sewer.
The first four-part series saw eight sewing hopefuls compete in various challenges from hand stitching to customisation. You can find the first four episodes on YouTube here.

Luckily the series turned out to be a succes, so a follow-up of 6 new episodes is to be launched next year.

In case you haven´t noticed! - DIY, short for Do It Yourself or homemade as some may call it, is getting more and more popular these days.
Maybe because of the economical crises. . .or just because people are tired of buying of the rack and want to stand out. But of course there is also a great satisfaction in creating something yourself.
