First things first: The winner of the Quilting Arts TV DVD
set from my last post goes to Von8. Congratulations! Please email Lindsey Murray (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your address and she'll send the DVD set out to you.
Now onto some pictures and video from our latest Quilting
Arts TV taping that we taped a couple of weeks ago…
This season we really have gone to the dogs! We feature
several canine-friendly segments, including one by our very own Helen Gregory. Check out Helen’s little video of her getting ready
for her Quilting Arts TV Series 800 debut:
We also had Faith Cleary on as a guest who showed us her
incredible thread-painted pet portraits.
They look difficult to make, but she
showed us on the Bernina 830 how with a little patience and a few thread changes they can be accomplished easily. She was so kind as she made
a tote for me featuring my pooch Sophie!
Speaking of beloved pooches, meet Faith’s pooch, Barclay, who I got to meet last fall in
Houston. I want a French Bulldog!
I also felt very honored that Ana Buzzalino traveled down from Canada to tape three amazing segments with us. She's been a Quilting Arts cover girl a couple of times, including our commemorative 10th anniversary issue!
My friend Jane LaFazio also came to tape a few segments. Here she is in all of her smiling glory getting ready for her segment on how to transform original sketches into mini art quilts:
More guests who taped on Thursday (Clockwise from left to right: Terry White, me, Jennifer Solon, Nancy Odom, Mary Pal, and Lynn Krawczyk.)
Check out Lynn's fun little owls!
A little known fact: I am vertically challenged, and at 5'2" (and 3/4"!), I couldn't quite reach the foot peddle, so I had my very own high-tech foot peddle booster:
I’d like to thank our many underwriters for helping to make
QA TV possible this season: BERNINA of America, Havel’s Scissors, Coates Threads,
Kaleidoscope Designs, Warm Company, Dreamworld, Simplicity, and lastly Rowenta for
helping to tame my hair:
And a VERY special thank you to the peretually peppy, positive, and joy-loving Jeanne Delpit of BERNINA of America for all of her invaluable help!
Lastly, packing up is always fun and we literally tried to ship Helen back up to Boston...
More to come in Cincinnati!
Taping isn't over! We're taping more segments at the brand new International Quilt Festival/ Cincinnati show that takes place April 8-10. We will be taping several segments with some of the fabulous teachers who teach at Festival, as well as interview art quilters and tour some of the exhibits on the show floor.
Some guests include:
Rhianna White of Quilts, Inc.
Cheyl Sleboda, our very own Quilting Arts forum moderator
Pepper Cory, President of the International Quilt Association
And many more!
Hope you'll join us in Cincinnati!
