We were thrilled to get the invitation to visit the Martha Stewart Show live and in-person. Martha’s staff was amazing, and we got lots of special perks for being in Martha’s “Tech Section.” We got a special tour of the set, premium seating (we got a lot of camera time!), and permission to blog and tweet during the show.
Craft Critique hosted a tweetchat, which you can find here (#mscraftwk), which was fast-paced and very fun! Our friends from BurdaStyle, CRAFT, and Handwerk BKLYN joined in the fun from the audience.
The set was full of energy – staff members buzzing around making things look perfect, camera guys capturing all the right angles, and Joey Kola keeping the audience hopping during the commercial breaks. Between all the off-camera activity, the quick set changes, and our furious tweeting and blogging, it was almost bewildering at times. That hour sure went quickly!
The staff at the Martha Stewart Show couldn’t have been more gracious or accommodating. These kind folks always had their game-faces on, and we could tell that they all thrived on the fast pace and close quarters.
Last but not least we snapped a picture with Martha herself! She was super nice and cheerful and we were so grateful she took the time. We don’t have a copy of the pictures yet… But when we do we will post them here!
Thanks all for sharing in our adventures!
