Creative Expressions launching with Hochanda

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Guess who’s been invited to join the new TV shopping channel Hochanda, dedicated to crafts, hobbies and arts for their launch on the Thursday 27 August, 2015? Yes, you’ve guessed it – Creative Expressions have and they can’t wait to be part of this exciting new channel.
Creative Expressions’ talented team of demonstrators will all be appearing on the new channel, so all look out for Sue Wilson, Phill Martin, John Lockwood and Julia Watts.

Popular paper crafter, John Lockwood will be kicking off proceedings with a ‘One Day Special’ showcasing two of Creative Expressions’ best-selling brands - Craft Dies designed by Sue Wilson
and Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud.  This beautiful collection of dies haven’t been demoed on TV before, so make sure you tune in to see John work his magic with these and the fabulous Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud Blending Inks.

Keep up with the latest news - check out Hochanda’s facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Hochanda for the latest updates as you don’t want to miss this exciting launch and make sure to ‘Like them’ too!

Hochanda's website is www.hochanda.com for those of you that don't use Facebook :-)

Exciting times ahead!

My first shows will be a One Day Special, launching at 8pm on Tuesday the 15th September and then at 9am, 10am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm on Wednesday 16th September!!

I can't wait and look forward to you joining us there :-)

Happy Crafting!!


  1. Does this mean you will no longer be on c&c ?

    1. we haven't actually left c and c, just joining hochanda :-)

  2. All my favourites are moving to the channel -fab news we may at long last get to see demos without the demonstrator being talked over

  3. Brilliant news Phill, the launch day is also my birthday so it is even more special for me. Over the moon with joy. hugs, June Smith xxx

  4. Wow lots of shows for you Phill and I can't wait. Looking forward to seeing John demonstrate using his own stamps too. Until recently I didn't realise he even had his own range.

  5. This is great news Phill!!! Healthy competition : )
    Good luck!!!

  7. Morning Phill, Such exciting news, I am so looking forward to seeing you and all of CE on the new craft channel.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  8. Hi Phill,
    Brilliant news, especially as it will be more demo based...can't wait.
    Love Janet x

  9. This news has really changed my perception of the new channel, clearly attracting some of the very best brands so am now looking forward to it more. I'm not as anti C&C as many, I enjoy watching it, but look forward to having another channel to watch. Hubby is not so sure it's a good thing ;-) Good luck to you all on the new venture.
    Lots of love

  10. Hi Phill
    Fantastic news - and a whole day of you on the week I have picked to have off work! Couldn't think of a better way to spend it!!
    Good competition for c&c - as I only tend to watch when CE are on!!
    Good luck.

  11. Hi Phill
    I Think This Is Truly Magnificent News I Don't Watch "Create And Craft" Anymore Unless Someone From "Creative Expression" Is On The Sad Thing Is We Don't Seem To See "Julia Watts" On There On Any More So I Really Hope We Get To See Her More
    It Will Be Fantastic
    Hugs From Sam x

  12. Would appear that NO Sue Wilson or Creative Expressions are now available on C&C...guess now you are on Hochanda you are not on C&C? Seems to be once someone has been on Hochanda they disappear from C&C...now the sound is better on Hochanda, am liking it more, but there p&p is prohibitive and we all moaned about the cost at C&C!! The monthly amount to cover free postage at Hochanda is extortionate as well!!
