Judges’ Ravings of Garments Produced at the Great Halifax Sewing Bee, Part 1/3

With the sewing bee done and garments submitted, we take an overview of the garments produced before getting to the details as raved on by the judges!

First up is the Team Yellow.

These videos will be presented in the ordered in which they took place. In the next post, we will hear what the judges thought of Team Green’s and Team Purple’s garments.

Final Check In Before Judging at the Great Halifax Sewing Bee

This is the final set of videos I have before the judges’ comments. My phone ran out of space as I had not realized I was filming in HD the entire time. As a result, I didn’t catch the final minute. However, someone else had space on their phone for the judges’ comments which I hope to post later this week!

Off and Sewing at the Great Halifax Sewing Bee!

Team Purple was the first to get sewing as you’ll see in the video below. On this second round of walk about videos about 10 minutes in, most teams had already gotten to the sewing!

From here on, there will be a slightly uneven distribution of team videos. That was not intentional. Some teams were a little more camera shy than others so their wishes were respected to allow them to focus on the sewing.

Initial Minutes of the Great Halifax Sewing Bee

In this first batch of videos, you’ll “meet” the teams via video clips looking into their initial minutes. Clips were taken walking around so whatever was happening, happened. We did not have a camera at all the stations so these are not edited clips from a full session video.

Fixing Zippers 101

by Faye Morrison

Ever been at your wits end when you discover your zipper no longer works on an otherwise perfectly good jacket, dress, purse, etc?

I discovered a great new video about a product called FixnZip this morning on YouTube but haven’t tried it out yet; but I’m definitely going to try and lay my hands on one.

Fixing jackets are the absolute worst!
