It’s back! The Great British Sewing Bee returns for a second series this week, and if it’s anything like last year we’re gearing up for being bitten by the sewing bug all over again.
The stitching version of Bake Off turned out to be a surprise hit in 2013, as a nation of sewing whizzes and wannabees were captivated by the combination of gentle tutorials and the at times tense competition for the fabric crown.
Like last year the 2014 line up promises a good mix of ages, genders and skill levels, proving that learning to sew really is for all.
If the series has the same effect on you as it does on us and has you planning your dream fabric stash and musing on whether you ever could master driving that sewing machine gathering dust in your spareroom, check out the sewing workshops listed on Craft Candy.
The Great British Sewing Bee starts tonight at 8pm on BBC2.
