More upset about this,than Bake Off moving.

I'm so glad i'm not the only one gutted about this!

The petition is up to about 20,000 signatures. I don't have a clue how many is enough to influence decisions.

What a scandal. It is the perfect tea and biscuits program.

That would be a shame. Although I can't sew a stitch myself I really enjoy that show. Also the pottery one, the interior design one, the allotment one, the bake off, the art one... Basically I like to watch people with talents as I have none myself.

Gutted. Love the Sewing Bee. Almost as much as the Pottery ThrowDown.

Nooo! I love Sewing Bee. I love all these shows too. They are a lovely, gentle distraction in the evenings. No big prizes, or major dramas, but still entertaining. And they show genuine skills that are dying out.

I'm not sure. I love these shows generally (apart from the Allotment one which was dire) but I think they get a bit same old, same old after a few series. I had more or less given up on Bake-Off for the same reason.

I am not impressed. How very dare they? I didn't like them getting rid of the Allotment Challenge either.

I love all shows like this - although I confess to going clean off Bake Off thanks to all that philandering shenanigans. I could never look at him the same way after that.

The rest are all happy viewing for me. Pots, painting and gardening? Lovely stuff.

The Bee is fabulous though and I say that as someone who can just about manage to sew on buttons.

And yet we get Let It Shine...

I starting watching this that twat from TGBBO started shagging about. Just signed the petition. Fingers crossed.

😰 sad😰

This is just too sad. I have signed the petition but it needs to get way more signatures before the BBC will "listen".

I would rather they had cancelled bloody Eastenders. Or The One Show.

kwick Thu 02-Mar-17 18:04:12

Not Eastenders surely!! But the One Show defo!!

msrisotto Thu 02-Mar-17 19:00:26

I'd throw EastEnders under the bus for the sewing bee grin

kwick Thu 02-Mar-17 19:20:27

Haha!!! I like Eastenders- it makes me feel better about my life when I see what is happening on the square grin

But it's not real! You are watching people being paid loads of money to act out Jeremy Kyle show!
