Crafter’s TV, the digital platform run by Crafter’s Companion, has welcomed a new presenter to its channel. Becky Redican will join Joe Remblance and Ben Moseby as a lead presenter on the channel, working alongside Crafter’s TV’s existing craft experts.
The new presenter brings a wealth of experience to her new role, having run her own craft business for more than 15 years, creating pieces for art and fashion clients. She has mastered a multitude of crafts including wet felting, needle felting, sewing, painting, wirework, woodwork and decoupage.
Prior to joining Crafter's TV, Becky volunteered at a charity working with young carers and progressed to course coordinator and volunteer manager. She was invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen and other members of the Royal Family in acknowledgement of her work.
Crafter's TV is an interactive platform where crafters can find inspiration, education and shop while they watch. The digital channel currently broadcasts up to five live shows, featuring more than five hours of crafting fun every day.
Becky, who is originally from Chester, said: "I've always considered myself to be creative. I am the daughter of an art teacher and my grandma taught me crochet from a young age, so I have spent most of my life seeing creativity as both a hobby and a career. I'm really excited to be joining Crafter's TV and making my mark as a presenter. I love the family feel at Crafter's Companion, there's a strong community atmosphere, among both the team and the wonderful viewers, and I am thrilled to be part of it."
Jeni Santillo, head of broadcast operations, added: "We're really excited to welcome Becky to the Crafter's TV team at such an exciting time. Her passion for crafting and enthusiasm are infectious, and we know that our CTV community is going to love her!
