This feel-good take on the competition format returns, as Claudia Winkleman hosts 10 of the country’s best home sewers. In each episode, they face three needlework challenges set by two of the country’s most respected experts: top Savile Row tailor Patrick Grant, and renowned sewing teacher May Martin. The sewers are from all walks of life – from an IT consultant, to a retired air hostess and to a Lieutenant Colonel in the army. They all know their peplums from their plackets, but only one can win. This captivating series captures every tense moment as they compete to be crowned Britain’s best amateur sewer.
