Only the very best crafters will advance in this unique competition before the winner is crowned. The pressure will be on when the contestants attempt to stick, sew and staple their way to victory, but Lemon insists this show isn’t just about the hard-nosed pursuit of winning.


“This show is really good for wellbeing,” says Lemon, whose own impressive crafting abilities can be found on his Instagram. “I do a lot of craft and I love it. My friends told me this show was made for me.”


“With all my friends, their inner creative has come out,” adds Anna Richardson. “Without question, I think people at home will be sitting there with their families thinking how can we emulate what’s on the show? I mean, what else is there to do?”
