Craft Wars is a new crafting show on TLC where crafters compete against each other in an ultimate craft showdown. Each episode a crafter will win $10,000.00. We were consulting producers on the show so we helped develop the challenges, helped stock the Michaels craft closet, watched the competition from start to finish in the control room and offered up our creative and crafty opinions. It is wild fun show and we know crafters are going to love it!
2. What can viewers expect to see on this show?
The viewer will see projects that are amazingly creative, head to head crafting, high volume competition, new techniques and styles, meltdowns and celebrations.
3. When does it air?
