"From as far back as I can remember, crafting has been my passion. As a child, I would spend endless hours sitting on the back door step, engrossed in making dolls' clothes out of different coloured tissue paper and making birthday cards for all my friends".
Create and Craft presenter, Stephanie Weightman, is a passionate crafter with a vast range of skills from which to choose for her lively and informative demonstrations. She looks to make craft approachable, fun and something for all the family to do and, for Stephanie, crafting is a way of life.
After spending part of her childhood in Malta, Stephanie returned to England to attend boarding school. Following her A-levels, she knew that her path in life was to form a career that was creative. By the age of 20, Stephanie had set up her own fashion collection and textile company and, after designing beautiful embellishments for clothes, crafting soon became the main focus of her business.
In 1996, Stephanie was fortunate enough to make a collection of TV appearances, including Masterchef and Our House. She also contributed to a series with Jane Asher, the cake guru. From there, Stephanie made regular guest appearances on TV shopping channels until the call came from Ideal Shopping Direct to present on their channels, Create and Craft and Ideal World.
