Breaking news: New craft guest joins us on QVC

93

Stephanie WeightmanWe have some extra exciting news to reveal to you here at QVC! None other than celebrity crafting star Stephanie Weightman will be joining our team as a guest in early April, and the day can't come soon enough!

Stephanie is well known in the crafting world, by the industry and by so many of you – she won Crafts Beautiful Best Craft Personality in 2010 and Origin Craft Award Winner for Best Craft Personality four years running! Her passion began as a couture fashion designer, creating everything from bespoke wedding dresses to pieces for Nike and Speedo. She then joined Craft World, wrote several craft books, ran workshops and has written for various craft magazaines and editorials as well.

We caught up with the lady herself to find out what she hopes to bring to QVC and to get some top tips too…


What can viewers expect to see from you on QVC?

I am passionate about craft so I hope that will come through along with a sense of fun, but more importantly I want to share my years of learning and experience along with my ideas and inspiration. I hope to be able to share new crafts, things that have been part of my life, like cake decorating and needlecraft to name just two. 

I have had many years developing new products and working with big name brands, so it will be a delight to bring these new exciting products and brands to QVC customers first. 

What are this year's key trends?

Last year's shabby distressed look is still very important but this year it will have a pretty look associated with it, so lace, flowers and decoration are the order of the day. We are going to be crafting some very pretty projects in all crafting categories. Paper flowers will continue to be very popular -ready-made ones and ones we make up ourselves.

Doilies will be another look clearly identifiable, look out for paper ones, die cuts and printed versions in papercrafting, and crochet versions will be found in embellishments and fashion plus home decor. That reminds me, don't miss out on the look of big flowers, they will be anywhere we use pattern.

What is the one tool you couldn't live without?

The tool that has made the biggest difference to the way I craft and I wouldn't want to give up is my glass cutting mat. And now that I have an A4 one, it's even easier to fit on my crowded craft desk! 

But being cheeky at the moment, one thing I am collecting and that I am using almost every time I craft are the amazing dies available and there are some new designs I can't wait to share with everyone.

How do you start designing?

Ideas pop into my head all the time… I can be walking round a supermarket, reading, sleeping… literally anywhere. I carry a note pad round with me all the time and have one by the bed as well. Sometimes I just write down words and sometimes I draw.

Once I have an idea, I then think about colours and normally put a colour chart together and a story board. It helps me crystallise my ideas and not go off on a tangent.

Which element of craft excites you the most?

The variety of crafts excite me the most, being able to make things for the house, making gifts, making cards and trying new products are just a few of the things. I also just love learning and sharing ideas and techniques, and I collect craft books… I have literally hundreds! I'm really proud of some really old ones on paper making and needlecraft.

Join us for Stephanie's first appearance on QVC in early April – look out for further updates!

    Well done QVC in acquiring Stephanie – I have always enjoyed her style – hopefully she will bring further fresh ideas in crafting for us and perhaps if sales increase a reduction/capping in P&P could be considered – which would certainly encourage the majority of crafters out there to seriously consider shopping with you – it could make you a worthy adversary to another particular shopping channel.

    Personally not too excited about this announcement. Fed up with the games being played out with these channels. I sincerely hope the current craft experts arent sidelined to make way for her, that would not be fair on them and I enjoy their hours greatly. I would really welcome Rosemary Merry back on our screens, she is very talented.

    Steph – What FABULOUS news! I was only thinking a week or so ago that it is a long time since I have caught you on tv. Hopefully there will be a regular slot for you to share your creative flair with us at QVC. Please bring lots of ideas for the men in our lives too. My husband is a whizz at encaustic art (we are relative beginners) but he is interested in origami and other crafty ventures.
    Good luck

    This is the best news I have had all week! I actually thought QVC had decided to forget about crafting after Dawn left. I am sure you will breath new life into it and look forward to seeing you (hopefully sometimes in an evening, for those of us who have to work). Wishing you the very best of luck and every success.

    Fantastic news! At last lovely Steph back on our screens. I can’t wait to see her presenting again, her enthusiasm, knowledge and her demos are second to none. I agree wholeheartedly with a previous comment though about QVC lowering their P&P, I’m sure they are a big enough company now to allow this to happen and believe me Steph is worth it. Good Luck for April Steph, we’ll all be there with you!

    At long last – it will be great to see Stephanie on TV again. Stephanie was the one person that got me into crafting and that give me a worthwhile hobby when illness took its toll. She is very knowledgeable, has a wonderful personality and ‘craft’ runs through her veins – I have been lucky enough to meet her a few times at Glasgow and she is that person that appears on tv – don’t change, we all love you the way you are. I look forward to learning with her and buying products from QVC to do just that. Reading other comments I would also ask – Can QVC do something about the postage charges, that is the only thing that is expensive when buying a number of items, especially when they all fit into a standard envelope for example – 2 sets of different Decoupage Sheets, different numbers – 2 postage charges
    Well Done QVC, you will be back at the top! Love and Best Wishes Steph, Mo

Haven’t been watching QVC craft shows for months as there has been nothing new – when I have checked what is on just mattting, layering, same old thing so turned over. We needed Stephanie to bring her expertise, talent and artistry. Can’t wait to watch the shows and the new products she will bring.

    Will be gret to see you back. Can I make a plea ~ get back to “real” crafting and leve the CD’s for other channels to sell. What we ‘nned’ is to see demonstrations, suggestions; innovation, inspiration. Ther are many crafters out ther who aren’t in the “load CD, print & click brigade”!

    Like other people am looking forward to seeing you on TV again. Very seldom watch the other craft chanel any more as certain presenters are just divas. Stephonie always explained and demoed so clearly all the products that were for sale. Hope QVC can do a deal for multi buying! I do buy from QVC especially the Martha Stewart range and I would buy more but the postage is too expensive.

    I am really pleased Stephanie is joining QVC, lets hope they allow her to show us demostrations, I think the matting and layering was the only thing that time allowed for in the past, lets hope the programmers have learnt a lesson. We crafters will buy what we can afford and want not just because it has a hard sell. Good luck to Stephanie we are all really looking forward to you on our tv’s again

    well get ready for a battle steph???. Its hard to give customers what they really want when your hands are tied behind your back, lets hope QVC lets the guest decide how they wish to sell their products, The fast sell does not belong in craft, full demonstrations of products do. Good luck Steph, I really hope you and QVC can pull it off, I have really missed the crafting on QVC, after all it was QVC that inspired me back in. to my crafting, good luck and my fingers are crossed. love Gabby

    Fantastic news. Can’t wait to see the new shows. It would be fantastic if you could bring Nancy, Nigel and Dean (the presenters on the other channel), the 4 of you together are fab, you brighten any day and make crafting worthwhile to not only watch but do. Like some earlier comments made, the crafters on the other channels are not a patch on you Steph, I’ll def be back watching QVC now you’re a presenter, HELLO QVC GOODBYE C&C and IW. Only criticism I have with QVC is the amount of postage paid, it does put people off when you order loads, but at least its a FREEPHONE telephone line and you are talking to a call centre here in the UK, questions are usually answered immediately. Roll on April, WELCOME STEPHANIE.

    Hi Steph, So glad to see you will be on our screens again, missed you lots. I have shopped with QVC from the beginning and buy all sorts of items. I like various crafts and used to be hooked to the craft shows but over the years the variety of crafts dwindled so I now watch a dedicated craft channel to fullfill my needs. However YOU are no longer a guest on this channel so I will be tuning in to QVC again as I love your style of presenting and expertise, crafting should be fun! I hope QVC treats you well and wish you all very best in your new endevour. Luv Sandra B xx

    Just read all the comments. It will be good to have proper shows (regular) hopefully again.
    Qvc please take on board all comments from Crafters.
    What we need is less hard sell and more demonstrations
    Capped postage and packing IT REALLY IS FAR TOO EXPENSIVE TO SHOP ON QVC.
    Hopefully it will not be ALL CD’S either As personally I find them sooooooooooo boring.
    Will have to watch this space in April when Stephanie joins QVC to see if the porogrammes and products improve.
    Lastly bring back Rosemary for the scrapbookers

    welcome steph to qvc i just hope that the stuffiness of qvc won,t stop you from being yourself. if they bring down or cap the p&p and lower their prices it should all work out really well. glad to see the gang will be staying together.
    good luck jennie xx

    Hi Stephanie, Hope the move to QVC works out for you. I love your style of crafting and I shall be watching you on Thursday as much as I can.
    Best Wishes for many more happy crafting shows with your fun and laughter to be heard!

    Anything has to better than Amy Shaw. Craft on QVC has gone to the dogs since Dawn left. No set hours anymore and as usual inflated postage costs and demo’s at the speed of light. The only crafting worth watching of late was the Tim Holtz day. Bit bothered that this move seems to be a bit ‘tit for tat’ but I might be wrong. Hope Stephanie keeps Amy away and I might actually bother with QVC craft again…

    I’ve only just heard this news. Hmmm, I wonder what is going on here?
    Anyhow, welcome Steph I look forward to watching your demonstrations. Just one request, PLEASE no cd roms….!!!!! Thanks and good luck, Bev ;-)

    I look forward to watching you again Stephanie, it was you who inspired me 4yrs ago to have a go myself. Since you have left C&C, the buzz has gone out of the crafting world. The crafting channel do do some amazing deals, but that is not always what a crafter needs especially the newbees. The idea for a craft program is to demonstrate without the fast lightning tacticts, so when you try it yourself, it very rarely works. I have a lot of equipment, which just sits on my table and hardly gets any use. This is criminal, all because I am not sure how to use it. Good luck Stephanie on your debut night, I’ll be watching.

    I will be pleased if Stephanie’s return to QVC means that there will be more frequent programmes. I endorse all the comments about postage and the time allowed for demonstrations. I do not endorse the comments made about Amy Shaw. I liked her style and enjoyed her presentations. I will miss her but I expect that she will pop up elsewhere due the transfer market which seems to be operating between channels.

    I have been a regular ordered of craft products from QVC for years but since Dawn left I have been really dissapointed with the quality of the QVC crafting shows. I was so pleased to see you had joined QVC, its great to have a crafting expert who has the knowledge and know how to explain products and give tips. I have even bought my first CD after watching the show. I really hope QVC give you the freedom to bring in some new products, especially for scrapbooking which they seem to do less and less of these days.
