Janet from series 5 joins us!

It’s now week 6 of The Great British Sewing Bee and this week we welcome Janet from series 5!

We first started doing these episode reaction/review shows of The Great British Sewing Bee last year and Janet was one of our favourites right from the start and we loved talking about her makes. So much so, Janet soon found our chats on YouTube and left some lovely comments.

Moving to this year and the current lockdown situation we decided to still do the review shows but using zoom. As we are all at home ‘zooming’ we jumped at the chance to reach out to Janet this year and ask her to come on and join us doing an episode reaction/review show and this is it! Sadly, Ting, couldn’t be with us today which is a great shame as he had Janet as his favourite right from episode 1.

We hope you enjoy watching as Janet also gives us a few insights to the show as we chat! If you love the show, then this is a great one to watch! Thanks for coming on Janet 🙂
