Whirligig founder to appear on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas

Published on: 10th December 2018

Peter Allinson offered his toy-spotting talents and business experience for an episode of Kirstie Allsopp’s TV series.

Peter flew to a private address in Devon to record his part in the show, where he was asked to judge the results of the toy-making episode of the series.

Peter commented: “It was lovely to meet Kirstie and participate in the making of a popular TV show. As a fellow crafter it was also nice to help Kirstie out whilst putting one of my hobbies to good use. When I arrived, the house was full to the brim with Christmas decorations. But at Whirligig we’re used to Christmas starting early as we’ve been well prepared for what is now our busiest time of the year.”

The episode, which airs at 5pm Tuesday 11th December on Channel 4, was recorded back in October.
