I think with all the crafting and crafters out there I thought I would ask the question....

Who do you prefer as the MAIN craft presenter??

Dawn Bibby OR Stephanie Weightman?

I prefer Stephanie, she's always cheerful & up for laugh.
Dawn seems to be always moaning about something and the continuous plugging of her shop annoys me.

I think Stephanie is more cheerful but Dawn is a far better demonstrator.

Stephanie Weightman plugs her stuff a lot more on IW. Think of the number of new rip-off My Craft Studio CD's that are rammed down our throats with monotonous regularity as the simplest example, plus her (IMO) rubbish Craft Room, kimono blocs, etc

I prefer Stephanie too.
I don't think Dawn gets enough different things to do (more advanced stuff mainly).
The decoupage on IW/CC gets a bit boring too.:rolleyes:

I prefer Leonie and wish she was a main presenter.

No contest! Dawn Bibby is in another class completely. Love her or hate her, you have to recognize that she knows her stuff. Stephanie hasn't got a clue.

I've already posted on IW - Dawn is so much better. She knows her stuff and always tells you exactly what's included. I know that she can be a bit of a moaner, but credit where it's due, she's very thorough. SW hasn't got a clue. Leonie is OK in small doses, but she's a grown woman and too often acts like a juvenile.

I agree, I much prefer Dawn, she has a better presenting style, is more organised but most of all trustworthy. I really didn't like the way Stephanie and co handled the My Craft Studio problems she went down in my estimation, her presenting skills seems eratic and muddling.

Agree with above - Stephanie is much more just selling not doing. When she did do demonstrations (on the previous channel she was on) they were very basic and very repetitive.

I've not seen Stephanie demo lately its all about the presenting/selling. Dawn is much better - although too found of pink/butterfiles/dogs!

Dawn Bibby. My feelings for Steph are well known - I can't abide her.

You're so right. I've just had to give up on the QVC programme this afternoon - there's only so much I can take of the combination of Catherine Huntley and Leonie.

By the way, does anyone else reckon that both Leonie and Amy are given more time to do demos than Dawn ever gets? I definitely get the feeling that they're put under far less pressure.

I prefer SW it's nice to watch someone on TV who has a laugh.

What does DB demonstrate that's different now? I stopped watching her long ago because I got bored of her using stickers the majority of the time. Last show I watched was so heavily based on pick and stick I gave up watching and so many of the card examples seemed to be made by others who didn't get much credit for their hard work.

Dawn always refers to her 'girls' and her 'design team' so she does give them credit for helping.

What does SW do that's different then? As far as I can see, Create and Craft concentrates mainly on CDs. Now I've never tried them as I like to stamp and make my own toppers. Each to their own I guess.

I'm a Steph fan myself, I just find Dawn Bibby dreary and depressing.

I agree its 99% CDs as pick of the day how boring, as my lovely mum cannot use a comp very well IW POTD are useless.

I prefer Dawn Bibby as she is far more insightful and she knows more about crafting.

Plus when there is another guest on she will leave them to it with the QVC presenter, how many times on IW do they have Stephanie plus IW presenter and guest, it gets over crowded.

If I see DB is on I turn over the TV, I also find her manner dreary & depressing.

When sales have been good for crafting on QVC I have heard say she had advised on putting the packs together, then when things are not selling saying she was not responsible it was the buyers?

I am driven to distraction with the term 'my girls' 'the girls' - sounds like something from The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Unless they are under 18 years of age to me they are women.

It is on par to a man of 40+ refering to other men as 'my boys'

I am not interested in CDs either as I do not see how it is really any cheaper than buying prepared stock or how the items produced can match the quality of prepared items.

But at least SW has a sense of humour, and has a relaxed approach when working with guests.

this always makes me smile -

Dawn is more professional, but does plug her own shop and now studio a little too much for me.
And takes credit for bringing 'craft' to Qvc - not - she has brought cardmaking,papercraft n stickdots plus the never ending slapnstick type of card making. I can remember when she first appeared on Qvc and she was not the blonde bombshell she is now, more curls twinset &pearls:rolleyes:

CRAFT is more than either channel show

Stephanie has more humour and I prefer her painting to 'crarfting', but when the MCS cd occurred (I bought the original on the launch show and it still haunts me) I lost faith in whatever she 'promotes'.

Now I watch for ideas and to see products but source my own and purchase that way, at least then the fat cats don't get a cut:D
