Craft Critique Martha Stewart Show Event

Reported by Simone Collins

Brought to you by The Cricut Cake….

We are packing our bags and heading to NYC this week for a special live tapping of the Martha Stewart Show this Wednesday, March 2nd. This special episode will kick off National Craft Month and feature the new Martha Stewart craft products which will be sold in Michaels stores. This show will air live starting at 9a cst on the Hallmark Channel.

During the show, we will be live blogging every detail right here on our website. Read and follow along as the show airs to read this midwestern girl’s impressions of the whole Martha Stewart experience. And if you can’t tune in because pesky work is getting in the way, just follow along with the live blog feed to feel like you are right there with us!

It is no secret that Martha is a fan of social media. Last January, she featured The Blog Show which included segments about blogging, featured bloggers, and had an audience of only bloggers.     And Martha has a facebook pagewrites her own blog and is a regular tweeter. It just makes us love her even more.

We have had other brushes with the greatness that is Martha Stewart like when Sarah Moore, our Editor- in-Chief, attended the Bloggers Night Out event last August. Or when some of our editors flew traveled to Turks and Caicos last November to report on the Martha Stewart Craft Studio at Beaches Resort. If you love Martha like we do, this is just the cherry on a very delicious, perfectly frosted red velvet cupcake.

And if you weren’t already convinced to tune in to the website on Wednesday, we are also giving away a Martha Stewart Cricut Cake Machine and cartridges (over $500 value) to one lucky reader!

To enter to win, you need to post a comment or question on our site within the live blogger window or in the comments area.
You have from 7a-midnight cst to enter. Winner will be announced on Thursday, March 3rd.

Sign up for this handy reminder and then just tune in right here on the website with live blogging beginning at 8:45a cst.

We will also be hosting our weekly tweet chat on Wednesday afternoon from 1-2p cst, join us at, hashtag #craftchat for a chance to win a Martha Stewart prize! We will be talking all Martha and would love to hear what you think of the show, her products, and see your Martha-esque creations.

    I discovered Martha Stewart craft supplies only half a year ago… it’s a pitty that it’s difficult to buy her products in Lithuania (Europe). I really adore everything I bought from Martha 🙂

    The punch you used in the photo for the coral is one of my favorites! It’s so useful for many things – the coral, branches, wreathes, etc.

    I totally love all her products and craft kits, etc. this is an awesome prize, would love to get it, can you make your own designs on this machine? or only her designs? I’m just wondering, cause I love to make my own designs when I craft, I would love to be able to make my own designs along with hers to make awesome cakes and cupcakes to share with family and friends.
