QA TV Taping Pt III

4 Mar 2009

More images from our QA TV taping last week...
Luana helen
Luana Rubin of joined us this season! Here she is with our very own Helen Gregory and the Bernina 830.

Pokey and jay
Pokey with Jay McCarroll just before his first segment taped. (I know this will come as a shock to many of you: Jay's segments are rather humorous.)

Jay models in the green room with Jamie Fingal's heavy metal mouse.

Alisa pokey jeanne
Alisa Burke, Pokey, and Jeanne Delpit of Bernina. OK, kind of a geeky picture but we were having fun! Alisa made her paper and plastic recycled purses for her segment.

Malka is a safety girl and donned her respirator for mixing the dye powders, something she also did for the taping. It was funny listening to her try and talk through that thing!

Today, I have two bonus videos for you.

Jamie Fingal shares with Alisa Burke her tip for cleaning her studio:

And Jay humored everyone whe he did a promo for Steam-a-Seam. Jay swears by Steam-a-Seam and uses it in everything he does (including his Chrysler Building dress from "Project Runway"), so he was happy to give this promo for them. I took this little video from the control room, and you can see Jay on the monitor juggling two boxes of Steam-a-Seam:

Great pictures. These are better promos than any commercials. I love the video clips too. I have lint rollers all over my house because I have two cats, but I hadn't thought of using it for threads on my desk. Brilliant! I really need to think outside the box more. :)

OH I loved watching Jay on project runway...what a hoot! It's making me crazy that I can't figure out exactly when QA airs on my PBS station. They keep moving it around. I guess I just need to buy the dvds and be done with it!
