Has Create and craft, recently started broadcasting in 4; 3 instead of 16: 9.
My wife being an avid viewer is very upset, cos if the screen is changed to fit the screen, you lose part of the pic....

Other modern progs show 16:9

As urs are live, it should display in full widescreen.

parcel: Change the aspect ratio setting on the TV so that it puts black bars down each side rather than chopping off top and bottom.

From Ireland I want to 'phone C & C, specifically during some shows. BUT...

I cannot make contact with any 'phone number on the website. Nor have I the correct email address to write to specific presenters.

I have spent hours searching, only to end up with no success. Your regular emails have a 'no reply' address, so I cannot email.


Thank you, and have a good day all.

'Cepta: That's probably because they are non-geographic premium numbers.

The geographic main switchboard number for Ideal World (of which Create & Craft is a part) is 01733 316200, as published by SAYNOTO0870.COM. They will apparently not put calls through to customer services, but I imagine that this is so as to ensure receipt of the Service Charge on the premium number, a charge which is now illegal under the Consumer Contracts Regulations.

Lesley : If you're asking about something shown on the channel, try contacting the broadcaster. This is an independent website aimed at helping with TV and radio reception problems.

I find create and craft very frustrating these days as there use to be more variety, now 98% of the time it seems to be making cards with the odd snatch of parchment, cross stitch, beading, knitting or crochet. There are fewer and fewer interesting subjects of craft. What about encaustic art or more hardanger. Lace making, macram, tapestry or painting?
There are so many crafts out there yet some are so few and far seen on the TV.
I teach myself all manner of crafts.
I am a member of create and craft but I will not renew my subscription when it is due because I am not using my benefits enough to make it worth while...unless more variety is introduced...and more often...not the odd one here and there.
I can't recall when I last purchased anything from create and craft. It may have been something to do with beading.
