I watch it on Youtube so that I can fast forward past the parts I'm not interested in.  The teacher of a monthly class that I am doing has presented a few times so I always watch when she is on.  I think it has improved since it started and they have taken on board comments that have been made, but it is too hit and miss for me to watch regularly.
I do like the fabric that I bought and the free sewing kit but do you have any idea why I bought gold ribbon?  -<

I watched it a few times, but found it a bit like qvc, OK in small doses. I do like the idea of it though but still four hours a day, seven days a week is a bit much.

But I do catch it at times.

Hi yes I watch it, usually the last hour then look on youtube to see if anything interests me.  There are some good tips from them.  I am building a list of haberdashery and will order when I have all I want. :D

I dipped in for a couple of days following the launch, but was so disappointed with the twee little projects that I deleted the channel from my index.

It is a bit dip in and out depending on where you are in your sewing journey and what type of sewing you do.  Lots for crafters with cute items in kits.   But it does seem to be a shopping channel for fabrics etc.   Not really for me,  but interested to hear what others thinks so thank you for your comments.

I've just watched about 5 minutes of the programme from 21st February on Youtube. Making a circle skirt from woven cotton with a wide stitched on elastic waistband. Not impressed. The lovely instructor  said you need to have the centre hole the size of your waist -  now that's only going to be OK for a child with no hips -  no way it's going to  work for an adult. Anyone new to sewing is not going to be on the right path if this is the kind of error they make. No I think I'll pass.

They've started making garments then.  It was twee little projects the last time I watched.  I might look at the YouTube and leave a comment.  :devil:

Alas, there is only 4 minutes of this programme up on Youtube and it's not the skirt tute.  Would have loved to point out the 'school girl error'.  :D

The constant sales pitch irritates me and so do most of the projects. I have watched bits but it isn't for me. I like Jennie Rayment on Create and Craft, when shes on but I tend to watch that on Catch up then I can delete all the sales stuff at the beginning. Also Jennie isn't on all that often so it is useful to be able to just select what I want to watch on the website.
