Sold out and gone!

After 11 years with Ideal Shopping today I've presented my last show, and was presented with a beautiful bouquet and cards from presenters and crew, and a very large amount of money to spend at Dunelm! Sad to leave the place I've spent 20% of my working life but exciting to start a new chapter.I've got a few projects up my sleeve and I'll keep you all posted...

  3. Hi Debbie
    I was sad to hear you are leaving C&C. I love watching you sew and demonstrating different machines. As you have used a lot of machines which one would you really recommend? I am currently sewing a dress for myself but I am rubbish at putting in zips! Anyway, hope all goes well in your new venture, keep us updated

  13. Fortunately I only discovered you were leaving C&C this morning when you returned as a demonstrator, although you could have knocked me down with the proverbial feather when Nigel made the announcement. It's because of your ability to make an item in super quick time, and make it look easy, that got me returning to sewing ... after some 20+ years ... and it's also because of your clever demos that I bought the Husqvarna Viking E20 - love it and wouldn't be without it - and I also have three of your books, so I am hoping that you will continue to appear as a visitor on C&C often, if only to continue feeding my newborn enthusiasm for sewing!! However, I do wish you the best of luck in whatever new ventures you embark on. xx

  17. Having watched you on Create and Craft, I got my sewing machine out of my cupboard and wiped off years of dust. I always loved sewing and had somehow lost my way. Your wonderful shows inspired me to sew again. Will miss you, but wish you well in your new ventures.

  23. So sorry to see you have left Create and Craft. You were the best presenter. I liked your calm manner and the way you let the guests do their demos. Your sewing shows were inspiring and made me want to get back to sewing. Perhaps we'll see you as a guest on C&C! Best of luck in your new ventures.

  25. Oh gosh thank you so much for your thoughts, 11 years is a long time to spend in one place so it really was time to move on, it's the right decision for me, there is so much more to do!

  26. It won't be the same without you showing us your sewing skills, and like all the others I have done more with my machine then in the past. I am self taught and did not know about tensions, or how to put a invisible zip in. How to use my blind hemmer which I did not know I had till you showed how to do it. Keep your books and video's etc going have your cushion blinds and curtains books.Hope to keep watching you on YouTube, again only heard this because of you. All the Best xxx
