6 - What’s the worst crafting mishap you’ve had? As I make all of Jamie's demo kits for the TV I am intrusted with the original cards to make the kits from. Not that long ago, while working to a tight deadline I accidently knocked over my tea, flooding the desk and drowning Jamie's original card so I then had to remake the original card and the card kit all from a very damp sample.
