This year marks the first year of The Great British Sewing Bee Live, which is going to run from 21 – 24 September 2017, at ExCel in London. I have been lucky enough to be offered 5 pairs of tickets to give away for either Thursday 21st September or Friday 22nd September. It sounds like it’s going to be an amazing event, featuring:
- Comedienne Jenny Eclair hosting 2 live shows a day featuring Patrick Grant and Esme Young, as well as past contestants from the show
- Patrick and Esme sharing some of their tailoring and dressmaking tips
- Members of the audience and former contestants putting their sewing skills to the test live on stage (there is still time to apply to be an audience contestant I believe!)
- 250+ workshops and demos
- Dressmaking drop-in clinics
- A make at home fashion catwalk
- Garment and vintage galleries
- 200+ dressmaking and sewing suppliers
- An exhibition of archive Liberty pieces presented by the London Fashion and Textile museum
Sounds like an amazing day to me and I am very sad I won’t be able to make it 😦
