Filming for Quilting Arts TV

Very exciting few days happened around here. I was in Cleveland to tape my four minutes of fame for Quilting Arts TV. It was such a pleasure to finally meet Pokey Bolton, the marvel behind Quilting Arts Magazine and Cloth, Paper, Scissors. Both publications that I have enjoyed tremendously over the years and even had the pleasure of being published in Quilting Arts magazine and calendar.

My segment was about my journal quilts and a bit about working in a theme. It'll be episode 107, and hopefully will be seen on a PBS station in early 2008. I also had the pleasure of meeting several other wonderful artists who were also taping that day, Susan Lucky Shie, Jane Dunnewold (wish I had brought her book with me for an autograph!), Betty Blais from Embellishment Village and Jeanie Ajero from Kaleidoscope Collections. And Merinda (who's last name I unfortunately can't remember) who introduced me to punch-needle embroidery and was such an incredible wealth of information on crafts and the quilt industry, that all I could do was listen in awe. So besides being a completely enjoyable experience it was also a very educational experience that day...I cannot wait to see this episode and the entire show, there's SO much more that I can learn...
