The Day After the ‘Sewing Marathon’ on TV

It was a challenge to watch  Door Het Oog Van De Naald (DHOVDN) and the Great British Sewing Bee (GBSB) season 3 kicks off at the same time.

It was difficult not to keep comparing both programmes either. I am really curious what is an added value of having sewing couples in DHOVDN? What was the idea behind?

I could add more comments (I have small conversation with Marianne from Foxgloves and thimbles on this) … but  let’s give it a chance. Let’s hope the Dutch version will change the idea on sewing and make more people eager to sew and value the craft/quality/knowledge/experience behind it.

BTW… you may watch the 1st episode here.

I am glad these two programmes will be transmitted on different day/time as of the next week.

Which one is your favourite so far?

I think a lot of us expected her to win. She has a lot of experience and she presented her professionalism during these 4 weeks. Someone said that Ann has experience and Lauren a vision… true however you can only achieve your vision by getting the experience.

I am sure Ann was sewing a lot of creasy garments for her children and grand children in the past.

So now – let’s sew! We all see how much you can achieve if you just keep going. Let’s keep the spirit!

PS. There will be part 2 – I am looking forward to seeing it!
