The Great British Sewing Bee
Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and seek the frill of an experience…
for your growth, to venture out of your comfort zone
This is what I did in 2015 when I sent my application to “The Great British Sewing Bee” of 2016, series 4.
From phone calls to auditions, I progressed through all the stages until January 14th 2016 when the verdict came. I was one of the 10 contestants on the show!!
My leap of faith paid off.
Of course being ranked #1 for my boxer’s outfit is high on the scale of amazingness. I don’t think I ever felt prouder to be acknowledged in this way. My coral satin and chiffon bridesmaids did well as a cute little unisex fighter outfit.
It is also where fabric choices and behaviours came to the fore front of my creative mind. I had big ideas for my chevron top in episode 1 but my fabric choice led to the first drama of the series.
I feel blessed for the lessons learnt, discoveries and progressed made and encourage anyone to try a life changing experience, whatever the field.
