#gbsb: Your 140 character reviews of The Great British Sewing Bee episode two
There is a lot of Twitter love for BBC Two’s new programme The Great British Sewing Bee, in which contestants Tilly and Mark were sent home last night.
Only a few tweets mourned the loss of its sister show The Great British Bake Off, with many female (and some male) viewers expressing a soft spot for judge Patrick Grant.
The semi-final begins next week, and a few fans tweeted disappointment that the series is so short.
But despite The Great British Sewing Bee’s brevity, sewing machine sales are reportedly up since the show began last week, and sewing workshops were tweeting that their classes are filling up thanks to the new series.
Why is Great British Sewing Bee already into semi final next week? I flippin love it, it should be on a lot longer.— Leah(@cakesandbakes) April 9, 2013
The Great British Sewing Bee is very palatable methadone until the Bake Off comes back. Team Sandra and her amazing blue eyeshadow— Sara Carson (@downwithdigital) April 9, 2013

The Great British Sewing Bee continues to be adorable. I want to go out for tea with Ann & Sandra & Claudia (and then shag Patrick).— Scottieboy (@merseytart) April 9, 2013
My gran totally should've done that great British sewing bee thing, she would've opened up a can of whoop ass on them.— Michelle (@willmeetyouhere) April 9, 2013
I think I'm over the sewing bee, nowhere near as well-polished as the bake off. Time for some Hollywood Bread now to make up.— Diane Mulholland (@dianemulholland) April 9, 2013
Great British sewing bee propper program or really clever parody. You decide— peter moore (@petermoore23) April 9, 2013
Watched The Great British Sewing Bee, now watching footy (WHAT a miss!) and I commented on the news. What's there not to like about me?— Olly Cambridge (@OllyCambridge) April 9, 2013
