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.

National Sewing Circle Website

Beverly in the Guild wanted to share an online sewing resource with you all called the National Sewing Circle (nationalsewingcircle.com).

It is a site of sewing videos, with a blog, projects and things you can purchase. Some of the content is free, but some is for members only.

You can get a free newsletter emailed to you if you sign up that way, perhaps to find out more about things before deciding whether or not to commit to a membership.

For those of you looking for new online sewing resources, this site “seams” to be well worth a look! 🙂

Thank you, Beverly!
