Hi John, thank you for taking time out to answer a few questions for us. We love watching you on TV, you have such a great way of demonstrating and teaching. How did you get into working on the telly?
Sue Wilson came across my blog John Next Door whilst I was living in Spain and we started to correspond. I loved her stamps, dies and all her work ( she is still a Craft Idol for me lol) she liked what I was creating. I joined the Design team at Creative expressions on my return to the Uk, and when Sue found out I did amateur dramatics then the deal was sealed, she realised I could work on stage, so TV should be possible.
I know you are busy up and down the country – do you still love running workshops and doing the retail shows?
It must have been so exciting when you launched your own products, was it a little scary as well?
Is there any part of crafting that drives you mad (mines how I constantly “loose” whatever I’m working with!!), what’s yours?
I’m with you on that one, I spend hours looking for items that I need that are always right in front of me!
Finally, you obviously love different types of crafting, is there anything on your list that you really want to try?
Ive just bought the candle making kit form Hochanda ( to make candle cupcakes) I can’t wait to give it a try candle making is something I’ve always wanted to learn.
Thank you so much John, we can’t wait for more of your shows.
