A new competition show focusing on sewing will be coming to BBC Two.
The Great British Sewing Bee will aim to find Britain’s best amateur sewing enthusiast.
Film 2013 presenter Claudia Winkleman will host the show, which is due for broadcast in the spring.
The show’s Facebook page says: “The series will represent a version of the already successful series The Great British Bake Off and it will be broadcast in March-April 2013.”
The show will see eight sewing hopefuls taking part in the contest over a four week period, with challenges along the way.
Women’s Institute member May Martin and Savile Row designer Patrick Grant will take on the judging roles made famous by Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.
Winkleman said of the project: “It might not be the next craze and nobody might watch it but I’m proud to be involved in it. ‘Before Bake Off I went to Tesco and bought cakes but now I can make my own – now I feel the same way about my kids’ clothes and me.
“I made little navy roundneck cut-off tops that look amazing and you would trawl Bond Street for and spend a fortune on – and they fit so beautifully.”
