The Great Halifax Sewing Bee Pictures

Here are the pictures from our April meeting that was the Great Halifax Sewing Bee, as a little preview for what’s to come in the videos over the next few weeks.

Photos are in chronological order of when they were taken. Please click any to enlarge and scroll through.

As more photos are sent to me, I’ll add them in. Should plenty more be added, I’ll send a reminder for people to have another look at this post. Most people were pretty involved so there’ll likely only be new photos of finished garment.

The Great Halifax Sewing Bee! April Meeting

ASG’s April meeting features The Great Halifax Sewing Bee, an evening inspired by the BBCTwo’s popular show, The Great British Sewing Bee. With three seasons under its belt, the British sewing show has a huge international fan-base. 

To pique your interest, I’ve provided links to two shows, the first from Series 1 (Season 1 in North American television speak) and and the second from Series 3. (You can find most episodes on the Internet by Googling The Great British Sewing Bee.)

Two women popular in the sewing world, Ann Rowley and Tilly Walnes (Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons), were contestants in Series 1.

While every series/season has featured men sewists, Series 3 is outstanding for male representation.

From the spark of an idea to a full meeting’s program, the ASG Executive have worked hard to pull this event together. We hope our mini-adaption of the Great British Sewing Bee will make for a lively and entertaining evening. 

Please note: Due to time limitations, there will not be any Show and Tell, and the library will be closed, for this meeting only.
