    Jenny Cleary, Dan Bancroft, Ben Moseby, who didnít come from Ideal World are good.

    Just find it odd, there sister channel has a better line up
    Perception is interesting Jazzy, as Jenny Cleary was actually a beauty product expert on IW before she was on Jewellery Maker and Ben Moseby was definitely on Bid Tv (though more on it's sister channel 'price drop' which was essentially the same but in purple instead of orange).

    I think there is definitely a feeling that softer personalities are better at selling 10,000 £10 items, where-as they think Mason, Jacks and Simon are better suited to selling 500 £250 items. Otherwise they would surely mix and match more?

    Some of the machinery like sewing machines and die cutting machines are in that higher range. Believe it or not the Tattered Lace specials can be a couple of hundred as are these new Disney dies they sell. £294.14 for the 3D Decoupage Cherished Moments, £599 for the Brother FS130 QC 130 machine today.

    That is true. I did think I had priced myself too low on c&c products, but I feel the sentiment is the same. Convincing someone to buy card stock (if they happen to need it) is probably easier than convincing someone to buy a vacuum cleaner (even if they need it)

    Ultimately there is a reason Mason and co are on one side and the loves and Rachel are on the other. Nothing on selly telly is by chance or accident. Even if they make it sound spontaneous.

    It’s the showing you how to use the stuff and for some people even access to crafting products on C&C that makes it superior to IW.The Range, Hobbycraft and Dunhelm Mill are about the only places near me except for our local Craft Shop which I would support if it ever stocked anything I wanted. I give it a try ever few months thinking they must stock such and such a thing...

    Is it fair to say that while people generally buy from who they like, it especially applies to the crafting world, because there is so much choice these days?

    Definitely online retailers are cheaper than C&C and Hochanda. Most of them have good deals on p&p but the shopping channels have exclusivity for a limited time so if a crafter has to have something now they might buy from them.If you can wait a month you can get it cheaper. Sometimes a foreign brand can be hard to get hold of- today for example Hochanda have Jane Davenport’s ( Australian ) designs for Spellbinders ( American ) as their weekend wonder. The Jane Davenport stuff is hard to source over here.
