Very interesting show!
Very interesting show with a diverse topic on many types of craft. My only critique is that they should focus on only 2 craftsmen per episode, instead of 3. Each episode is only 22 mins. long. Many times it seems like there was much more to be seen and learn from each craftsmen and they had already moved on to the next one.
FYI, I remember Jill as a host from the TV game show Wipeout!

Incredibly interesting
We loved this show. The host is engaging, fun, and seems deeply committed to really understanding the process of the arts/crafts she shows us. Every single person visited was doing something truly captivating. We were 100% disappointed to not be able to binge watch ten seasons of this show. Loved every episode!

Great show
Great show with a very broad range of crafts and skills from around the United States. Nothing wrong with the host. She tries to keep the topics exciting and interesting where many would otherwise be quite dull.

Host ruins the show...
This show should be amazing, showcasing all the fantastic and unique artisans and crafts people. But instead it is nearly unbearable to watch with all her squealing and hamming to the camera and making it all about her not the subjects. Lose the "host" and get a narrator, or get someone less camera obsessed. Make this show about the artists.
