Peterborough based Create and Craft TV is pleased to announce that Jenny Cleary is joining the award-winning presentation team. Jenny has been working in shopping TV for fifteen years both in the UK and abroad, and is now set to join the Create and Craft team from the end of July.
Jenny is no stranger to Ideal Shopping Direct, having begun her career in shopping TV as a demonstrator on Create and Craft’s sister channel, Ideal World. She has since worked for several other Shopping TV channels including Gems TV, Jewellery Maker, TSC Canada, HSN USA and QVC in the UK.
Commenting on her new role as presenter for the channel, Jenny said: “It’s always been a dream to join Create and Craft as a member of the presentation team, and I’m over the moon to finally have the opportunity to call it my home.
“I am not new to the world of craft, having been a presenter at Jewellery Maker for the past five years. I am excited to bring my jewellery making skills including resin and polymer clay expertise with me, as well as my love of baking which I do in my spare time with my children. I cannot wait to share my passions with the Create and Craft customers, as well as learn some new Crafting skills myself. I am currently learning the art of flower arranging and crochet, and am looking forward to adding more craft genres to my repertoire. I hope that the viewers enjoy watching as much as I am going to enjoy presenting on the most popular craft shopping channel.”
Tony Sheridan, Chief Operating Officer said: “We are delighted to welcome Jenny to the team. She has been a favourite on shopping TV channels she has worked on, so we are privileged to have her joining our ranks and bringing her wealth of knowledge and expertise to the channel. Create and Craft has seen solid growth in the UK over the past 3 years, we are now the No1 retailer for paper craft products. It’s important that we continue to grow, and attracting new talent to the team is an important part of that. We hope to inspire our customers not only with our vast and exciting product range but also with our vibrant and expert onscreen talent.”
When not presenting Jenny spends time at home with her daughter Mia, 15 (a keen showjumper) and son Maximus, 11 (a football lover). Her favourite pastime is cooking for her family and friends with a busy bustling house full of laughter.
