Calling All Sewists in the UK

 

Funnily enough, even though I live on another continent I know a lot of people...

  • who are resident in the UK
  • who are serious about sewing
  • whose homes are full of their own creations 
The makers of hugely successful The Great British Bake Off are looking for a new kind of talent - non professional sewing enthusiasts to take part in a new TV series,

I would just love to see someone I `know` (and after the FQ Retreat will know) take part!  What are you waiting for?  Download the application form here - just remember me when you`re famous with your own TV show and book deal!

Haha I've seen this call around over the last few months, I 'could' do it but no way, I feel sick just at the thought of all the stress! Not my idea of fun! Look forward to meeting you in London next month!

I love watching the show! Every year I watch it! We tried to convince my Father to go on it, but he wouldn't agree =D

Sounds wonderful in theory but I imagine the stress would evaporate all skill and creativity in me!!! Interesting to see if it takes off!

Oh how wonderful! Unfortunately I'm not allowed to apply cos I have qualifications and earn my living from sewing! But I'd be jumping with excitement to see some of my blogging buddies on TV! Jxo

ROFL, umm, aye, I think they'd be too afraid of the camera gear and vans being nicked by the local neds, never mind the state of the flat ;o)

Laura Taylor said...

Oh god. No. No no. Can you imagine what any of us would be like on tv?? I shudder at the thought of it!!!

Cindy said...

Come on, British chicks! Where's your sense of adventure? I would love, love, love to see one of you with your own program.

Susan and Hadley, you just made me snort I was laughing so hard.

Can wait to see who is chosen by the tv company. I think I'd need a bleeper all to my self if I had to speed sew!

Ellie said...

Oh I loved watching the Great British Bakeoff. This new production could be very interesting.

I wanted to be polite but seeing the other responses I guess I'll just say HELL NO!!! Can't think of anything worse than being on TV, unless they get a double for me... say Drew Barrymore?! x
