Full Rules of Entry can be found at

The tenth series of the Sewing Bee returns on Tuesday May 21 at 9pm on BBC One and is also available to stream and catch up on BBC iPlayer.

What does Sewing Bee look for in an applicant? Top of the list is a love and passion for sewing and creating clothes.

You need to have experience making different types of garments and the challenges can involve making womenswear, menswear and childrenswear.

It’s absolutely ok to have not tried to make every type of garment and every technique. There is always time to practice through the process and everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses as well as things they enjoy making the most.

Include as much information about you and your sewing in the application as possible to get a sense of who you are and what type of sewer you are.

The closing date for applications is 8pm on Wednesday May 15. We encourage people not to leave applying until the closing date.
