For me ringing in the New Year often means a cozy night curled on the couch, TV clicker in hand, watching a frost-bitten *** Clark countdown to midnight. However, this New Year’s is a little more thrilling… because that stroke of midnight means Quilting Arts TV will soon be making its debut around the country. Check your local PBS programming for listings, and if you don’t see it scheduled in your area, ring up your local PBS station and ask ‘em why not. (Check the new Quilting Arts TV website for more information.)
For a teaser, see the Quilting Arts TV show open (below). You may recognize some of the images of quilts—one key image is Jane Johnston’s last quilt before she passed away that she gave to the doctors and nurses that cared for her at NIH, as well as art quilts from the 2007 Quilting Arts Calendar. (Credits for these artists are given for Series 100.)
In just three weeks we’re taping our second series of Quilting Arts TV, and we have an exciting line-up of guests including Jane Davila, Judy Perez, Heidi Lund, Katie Pasquini Masopust, Wen Redmond, Ruth Rae, and drum roll…Laura and Linda Kemshall from England.
You may have noticed that the décor has changed a bit in these parts. Much more to come in the 2008 New Year. Until then, I hope you’re able to steal one last beautiful and creative day for yourself in 2007!
