A Not So Good Girl

3 October 2012

So what’s the latest with KAL Media/All Craft Media/Craft Magazine Shop and Kerrie Allman/Jenn Smith-Clarke/Tallulah Ray?

Well, it’s fairly quiet out there but if you think Kerrie has sloped off and is now earning an honest living on the check-out at Tesco’s, think again.

If you’re trying to contact her (in the very likely event that she or her latest venture may owe you money), bear in mind that she’s no longer working from Bullocks Farm, the old ACM offices in Takely, which were vacated a couple of weeks ago. 

If your gripe is with Craft Magazine Shop – the non-incorporated business supposedly owned by Derek Barnes, you’re probably out of luck, as Derek I believe died about 25 years ago.  If it’s with the new Craft Magazine Limited, wholly owned by Richard Rycroft (Kerrie’s father), you could try the Registered Office address –  Ground Floor, 2 Woodberry Grove, London N12 0DR.

If you haven’t received your subscriber copy of Simply Sewing (which is now two weeks or so late), I can only suggest you phone the number (0207 458 4420 –  a London one) which is advertised on the website of Craft Magazine Shop (and do let me know what excuse you’re given).

And if you find that you’re advertising in any of these magazines, but haven’t consented to the ads, PLEASE don’t pay the bill.  It just encourages her and her mother.

“The word on the street” is that Kerrie may no longer be connected with any of the CMS magazines which will now be controlled by other family members.  But experience tells us that this will not be the last we hear of her in some guise (or disguise) or other.  And there are a lot of people out there who are determined she won’t be allowed to just walk away from all the debts and mayhem she has created.  

I’ve no idea what’s happening with Be Creative Magazine – the joint venture “Tallulah” is involved in – but I don’t believe it’s going to take the UK publishing world by storm, even if it ever gets published

You just can’t keep a good girl down (or a not so good girl for that matter).l
