My problem is not so much with the stuff they make (though some of it really is silly) as the way they shoot/edit the show. I have the same problem with "Crafters Coast to Coast." Is it really necessary for the producers to make crafters look and act like jerks or idiots? That really bothers me. I know a lot of crafters, and none of them are jerks or idiots--they're incredibly brilliant, creative people. Crafting shows should portray them that way.
YES!! I think i HUGE part of the problem is the general public equates craftiness with 'wacky'.
wtf?!? just because i'd rather make my own wallet instead of shelling out $75 for a Coach wallet doesn't make me "wacky"
and yeah, though i don't want to jump the hatin' bandwagon, butcraft lab is terrible; where do they come up with that stuff??
