Sewing Stars Needed!



Friends, how would you like to be a home-sewing celebrity?

If you live in the New York (Tri-State) area and would like to participate in the U.S. version of The Great British Sewing Bee, this is your chance!

All the info is below.  My understanding is that, should the U.S. pilot be picked up, there will be a group of different contestants for each hour-long episode, as opposed to the same group every show, as was the case in the UK.

Why not give it a shot?

Have a great day, everybody!

(I wonder if they could use a singing parrot?)

  7. Am I the only one wondering about "certain party eyes"? NAUGHTY EYES? This may be a new personal goal. I may be naughty, but this raises the bar.

  12. The second series of the uk version is much improved. Far better sewing personalities and the quality of work is better two.

  13. I'd *love* to see you on the show!

    Is anyone else concerned that, based on other American versions of British shows, it will be a disappointment? I liked the British Sewing Bee - no drama, no backstabbing, no snarky comments about the other contestants. The worst comment directed toward another contestant I can recall was something like "I'm a bit concerned about his/her choice of fabric (technique?)". Still, a show about garment sewing - YAY!!

    1. Yes, that was my first thought. I hope they do it well here.

      When I watched the Great American Bake Off, I was so disappointed; the contestants didn't seem to have the level of skills as the British shows. I found it kind of boring compared to the GBBO, but to its credit, none of the nasty stuff.

  14. I raced over here to add my vote for you on a US Sewing Bee, and now I...I love the parrot. You Must Apply: Sewists Demand LipSyncing Parrots And Their Friends!

  15. Milli Vanilli should have hired you as a consultant. Of course you must have been to young to work in the 80's - child labor laws and all. You have really mastered the essence of Doris. Which for some reason made me think , , , maybe Cathy should apply for the sewing bee. Of course you would have to coach her but she would certainly add an . . . effervescent twist to the show.

    1. Sadly, Cathy has no sewing skills. She is merely decorative.

    2. Oh dear, I guess that would be a bummer. You would have to do all the sewing and she would get all the glory.

  16. I think you should apply. You're photogenic, smart and a great sewist. And you live in NY! Why not?

    ReplyDelete
  17. so, only people in the NY Tri-state area are sewists in this nation? Pfffft!

  18. I agree with I sew in WA. I live in Arkansas just an hour from Fayetteville. I am a accomplished sewist and have been sewing since I was 5 years old. It's too bad you are excluding our "Southern Ladies" because you are missing out on some beautiful work. You would find our taste and style of clothes probably differs by regions. (as well as our accents) I for one would like to participate. Patty Deffenbaugh Karber.

  19. I would watch this show with so much more pleasure if you were a contestant ! And I'm sure you'd get an "A" there too ! Go, Peter, go !

  20. Yes! You should apply. Another lurker type here, but you would be great! And you have the eyes and expressions down perfect for "That Certain Party". I LOVE "The Great British Sewing Bee" and you'd be perfect!
