# 204 Call out to all sewing enthusiasts

One of my favourite TV series last year was the Great British Bake Off, I never missed an episode and when I couldn't watch it I always recorded it to watch later.

Anyway, the team that created the Bake Off for BBC2 are now on the hunt for people who are passionate about sewing and this is what they are looking for:

"The programme will be a celebration of sewing and will see men and women who love sewing turn their hand to a variety of challenges, from clothing making to interior projects. The sewing tasks will be interspersed with short films exploring the history of sewing in Britain.

It would be fantastic to get lots of people to come forward and apply for the show but at this stage I’m especially keen to get some men involved. I thought perhaps you might consider blogging about the series in order to generate some interest?

The series is currently due to be filmed in summer and we’ll be contacting shortlisted applicants from now to mid-May, so we’d love to hear from interested individuals as soon as possible.

If you think this is you and want to know more here are the contacts you can use.
