Just when you thought it was safe to go back to 644....its back THE CRAFT WEEKEND...:26:

Is this over kill or what :46:

Ive also noticed that they cant tell you what the pi**h of the day will be in a few days time. I guess when you are bigger then QVC Shaun must have loads of nice men banging his back door trying to get their products on Ideal World. What a life..... so much to choose from..:30:....oh to be an Ideal World share holder.......4 channels and only 10 products.....:17:

Please lord some new products please...I beg of you...:51:

I was quite taken with the pens but they were £50+ and encrusted with crystals. I wondered how many would be left on the pen once it got here....if ever it did. I turned over :22:

I presume you are joking, I hope and pray you are joking. There is a Craft channel if your not. Craft weekends should be banned

Oh deep joy! Whatever would they do without craft.:54:

It would make IW more interesting, as they'd have to find something else to sell. And it would mean less of a certain SW :32:

Think they are in need of a super craft, i.e. space ship, to take the craft to where no craft has been before.

I am sure they used to do programmes where they would sell over a dozen items in one programme (and several hundred in Consumer Choice) - what did they used to sell? :33:

Beanies and cuddlies, Chrissy Decs, Crystal Creations, Slinky, footy collectables, Goodspheres, tanning products...what else?

Suppose it gives us something to moan about ;). And it proves someone is watching, lol :1:

Quite agree with what you say. Going back before the “Weightman” filled the screen, we saw a lot of different crafts…wood burning, encaustic art, metalworking, frame making etc. While Ideal World overcharge them to be on TV and then take high commission on everything they sell, your not going to see the smaller company’s selling on IW. This then leaves the way open for SW to push her own c##p paper craft products from her own company. A lot of her items are low quality copies of other people’s products (CD’s spring to mind)

If they think everybody loves crafting why don't they put it on there second IW channel and be done with it give us all a bit of peace.

Presumably because if you take out Craft, they haven't got enough other goods to fill the schedulues. In other words, it looks as if IW are struggling. I've almost given up watching it now, it is so repetitive. Craft is not just Card making as has already been said. It COULD be interesting, now ir isn't.

In that case why in the hell have Ideal World wasted thousands of pounds on a second channel.

Aren't these "extra" channels the ones they always had only renamed? I seem to remember one was called Vitality and had fitness N lifestyle stuff on it. Perhaps they are stuck with them until their contracts run out.

You know, the past day, with the exception of Dennice, really wasn't too bad, and was wonderful in contrast with the last 2 hours of La Weightman. I still can't see the point of her being there - she's the least effective of their list of presenters.

With the amount of items now getting the free P&p treatment, they must really be struggling to sell even the craft items.Too many bliddy CDRoms IMO.Turn off as soon as I see them on the show.

I do think they have a rather slight over KILL:46::46::46:

My darling wife asked me to take her to our out of town craft shop type thing yesterday, not a problem as she was looking for a certain type of card thing to put photos in.

What does she come out with....but 4 packs of IDEAL WORLD CREAT AND SHAFT cards....:53::53:....OMG......never mind we did save a small forune on the standard P&P and having listened to Mr Darling, we have decided to invest it in Bradford and Bingley....:):):)

Not only do these people infect our homes with their utter crap, but now they have their eye patches on our high streets...:17::17:.....eye eye me harties...watch out TESCOS....:46::46:
