It is all ‘action’ at Oleana these days! We are housing the Norwegian version of the BBC success show, “Sewing Bee”. During two weeks in June, the Norwegian version called “Det Store Symesterskapet” will be filmed at our factory by the fjord in Ytre Arna.
“Det Store Symesterskapet” is a friendly reality television programme in which amateur sewers compete to be named "Norway’s best home sewer". The first series, which the BBC did in 2013, was such a success that it returned for an extended second series in 2014, and will return for a third series in 2015.
This is the first time a Norwegian production of the show has been done and we are proud that NRK chose our factory as their location. Oleana and NRK are working together very well and it is exciting for us working here to see how a TV-series is created.
And for those of you who are worried, it is just part of our sewing floor that is used as a studio; therefore we can assure you that this will not have any negative consequences for Oleana’s production.
