Sewing Bee gets a second thread

Claudia Winkleman presented the first series of The Great British Sewing Bee

The Great British Sewing Bee is to return for a second series, the BBC has confirmed.

The needlework competition, inspired by The Great British Bake Off and presented by Claudia Winkleman, will return in 2014 for a six-part series.

The first series of The Great British Sewing Bee featured eight competitors, with 81-year-old Ann Rowley crowned the winner in a finale watched by 2.7 million viewers.

Controller of BBC Two Janice Hadlow said: "I'm delighted that BBC Two viewers have taken this series to their hearts.

"It has proved that an ill-fitting zip or badly placed dart can make for compelling television in much the same way as a soggy bottom on Great British Bake Off and I can't wait for the next series."
