I've been mum about something and it's just about killed me to have kept this secret for so long.

Qatv_2

Coming the end of December a brand new quilting show called "Quilting Arts TV" and hosted by yours truly will join the PBS programming line-up. During the next few months, we'll be planning the set design, the content (and we have some arty ideas), obtaining sponsorships, and scheduling quilt artists and designers for the first series taping in September.

When we have more details, I'll be sure to post them.

Cool, huh? I, for one, am pretty gosh darn excited.

YAY and a HUGE congrats on the show, the big question is, will we be able to view it in Australia?..I really hope so. Have fun creating those sets, I can't wait to see them and all the wonderful Artists and their work you plan to feature....thats if it comes out our way of course (sigh).

Will this eventually be available on-line? For those far-away subscribers who don't have access to US TV programs? Congratulations to all concerned but please don't let this success dilute the magazine content in any way!!

I'm green with envy! I'm in the UK and heartily endorse Diane's comment. I was quite upset at not being able to do a recipe card swap with CP&S.

Congratulations! How great, fantastic, wonderful. I hope our station here will carry it. They seem to be dropping all the quilting shows locally.

I would also like to know if you can view online since not all the local PBS stations always carry these shows. HOW EXCITING! I can't wait.....when, when,when? Shelley

I hope you get a good host for the PBS TV show. Alex Anderson is doing her own thing with Ricky Tims. It's very well done. You have some tough competition.

This is so exciting ! I lov everything in your In Cloth & Paper and Quilting ARTS:) Magazines Congratulations on the new show - you have a wonderful team spirit. Quilting Artists are blessed to have you as a mentor and teacher! As I am recovering from *** cancer I have studied the history of "The Secret" An important personal goal is to create an ART Quilt worthy of being in Quilting Arts Magazine. Thank you so much for the inspiration - good luck with the new project! Hugs, Susan

While your magazine is THE BEST AROUND there's nothing like seeing it in person to really get a feel for what is happening! This is so wonderful! Must we wait until December!

How wonderful and how frustrating. I can imagine all this wonderful stuff going out on the airwaves as far as Mars, even Jupiter but not getting out to Australia! Any chance of this coming out on DVD for those of us in the Antipodes who won't get to watch it on TV?
