The Great British Sewing Bee - Christmas Special

Sunday 15 December

7.40pm-8.40pm

BBC TWO

The Great British Sewing Bee returns for a Christmas reunion with judges, Savile Row's Patrick Grant and sewing teacher, May Martin, and this year's semi-finalists; Stuart, Sandra, Lauren and 82-year-old winner Ann.

Like traditional sewing bees of the past, they pool their experience and talents to show you how to make everything from Christmas table linen, to unique gifts and exquisite tree decorations. Ann demonstrates how to makes a beautiful teddy bear, Stuart produces a tweed satchel, Sandra puts together a gardening belt and Lauren constructs a fabric doll's house.

We also learn what the sewers have been up to since taking part in the Sewing Bee and they and the judges share stories of their own family Christmas traditions.
