The Art Of Crafting

I’ve noticed promotions for a new crafting competition show premiering on another network this summer.  It makes me chuckle, yet another show coming from a concept that PBS began airing years ago.  If not for the popularity and staying power of  “Antiques Roadshow” I doubt we would be watching all these programs about collecting items in storage facilities, pawn shops or auction houses now airing on other networks.  Remember when Bob Vila premiered “This Old House” with Norm, how many years ago?   Now there are whole channels dedicated to home renovation.  I dare say the same can be said of cooking  programs, a PBS staple for years.  Basically everything old is new again, just depends on your perspective.

This Saturday morning WOSU TV  will begin airing “Crafting at the Spotted Canary”.  A series  for today’s contemporary crafters.  Projects range from scrapbooking, jewelry making, and kids’ projects to paper crafting, needle work, and crafts in general.  Each program is filled with fun and informative projects that complement everyday life and can be found on TV and the web. It’s a way to make crafting relevant to the needs of every day.

Every project is start to finish – things you can really make with the supplies you have on hand. Each show has 3 projects. Topics include: Things that organize; things to make a party festive; things that decorate a work space; things for kids; things that wrap a gift: things that are green and much more.  I hope you’ll catch this new program every Saturday morning at 8:30am on WOSU TV.
