Alan & Barry


VIP Shopper
Just had an e-mail saying that Alan & Barry's Crafts has ceased to trade. Whilst I thought they were 'over the top' a lot of the time, they did make Craft interesting and not just card-making. You could nearly always have a laugh at them, and their enthusiasm for all types of crafting shone through. I just hope they have not lost much money, and that they might make a come back at some point. They were infinitely more worth watching than some of the so-called experts on shopping tv these days.

I agree and wish them well. They were always fun & Alan was genuinely creative - trying things out on the hoof & encouraging us to play. Also, as you say, a much wider variety of crafts were shown - today it's almost all card making & even then most of it's CDs & stick on toppers. There seem to be very few genuine creative people on the channel now - Barbara Gray & Sheena Douglas are exceptions - but whatever happened to Glenda Waterworth? I used to love her stuff - always arty & individual.

A kilo of battenburg to MrsJames should suffice

BTW it was Alan who went missing, but he was found and hospitalised
