The yarn craft show “Knit and Crochet Now!” is getting a new host. Deborah Norville, television personality, face of a yarn line with Premier Yarns and all around crafty lady will be taking the helm of the show for its next season, according to a post on the show’s Facebook page.
Welcome, Deborah Norville
We are excited to announce that Deborah Norville will be joining us as the new host of Knit and Crochet Now! Deborah is a widely acclaimed author, television anchor and journalist whose career has spanned almost 3 decades, and is a lifelong knitter and crocheter.
Though Norville is known more as a crocheter, the show’s format will stay the same, with an even emphasis on knitting and crochet.
Brett Bara, who most recently hosted the show, said on the page “It’s been such a wonderful experience being part of the show for the past eight years (wow — time flies!), but the time has come for me to focus on new things,” noting that she will still be heavily involved in the craft world through her Brooklyn Craft Company.
No word on whether the regular lineup of guests will remain the same.
