Wouldn't it be great if we could watch a craft show once again?! When my first son was born and I found myself home with an infant, Carol Duvall was my saving grace. Each morning at 10:00 she would enter my family room and show me how to make cool cards, rubber stamp and so much more. She would take me to visit artists around the country - into their galleries and studios. I loved the diversion and inspiration.
Craft Corner Death Match was a hoot! Such a simple and fun concept, and they were way ahead of the game with this reality contest. [The celebrity filled craft contest show that was aired in recent years didn't hold a candle to this show!]
There were so many others out there, including the quilter Eleanor Burns and knitter Vicki Howell. And the show that visited artist studios in each episode. And where is Creative Juice?
Do you miss these shows? Aren't there enough crafters and artists out there to cater a little bit of programming toward? [I know, I know, stream it on the computer. I just like my shows bigger, mounted up high in my room and loud enough that I can hear over my sewing machine. But I digress.] All of these craft celebrities are online and I have had the pleasure of taking classes with Eleanor multiple times. I'll put my older self out there, though, and say "bring back the craft shows!"
