The Great British Sewing Bee (Geschickt eingefädelt)
The new VOX show “Geschickt eingefädelt” brings together top judges and eight ambitious contestants in a competition involving utmost precision, a passion for fabrics and materials and a love of individual creativity. Following the huge success of the original British format “The Great British Sewing Bee” on the BBC, the excitement of sewing is now also coming to German screens. In six episodes, star designer Guido Maria Kretschmer embarks on a quest to find the most talented hobby tailor with the right eye and a perfect feel for fabrics. Over the weeks, the contestants –– demonstrate their skill in all the most important aspects of sewing, whether it be sewing from patterns, altering a garment to make a new and unique creation or demonstrating perfect bespoke tailoring. The contestants must cut, sew and stitch to the highest standards for only contestants who impress the three judges with a seamless combination of skill, style and creativity will make it into the next round and ultimately into the grand finale. Preparations are currently in full swing for a second season which will air on VOX in the second half of 2016.
