Quilting Arts TV

What an adventure! I spent half of last week taping a couple of segments for Quilting Arts TV


What lovely people and what a wonderful opportunity. Patricia Bolton is one of the hardest working (honestly - I don't know when she sleeps) people I know. It has been such a pleasure to watch her add on projects and succeed with every step. I give most of the credit for the wonderful leaps my career has made over the past several years to her.  You can read her blog here.

And I learned some interesting things. The most interesting is that being the Hostess of a TV show requires three brains in one head. Pokey had to make up questions and comments on the fly, watch the crew's cues, listen to the producer in her earpiece, and remember things like who she was supposed to introduce for the next segment. Oh - and change outfits every 30 minutes for a week. Sounds like work to me. Can't wait to see how it turns out. I'll have to order the DVD's though as PBS doesn't hasn't picked up the show in this area. Write your local station and request the show - I have. Didn't work but I keep writing. Hopefully it will happen eventually.

Aw, thanks Lyric. Your kind words mean a lot to me! I am genuinely so thrilled for you and all of the artistic success that will be coming down the pike for you! I should tell you that you inspired me to print with peppers this past weekend. (I am taking the Kemshalls creative sketchbook course and in this module's lesson I needed to make a six-color color wheel.) So of course I stamped with food. ;)

Congratulations on becoming a TV star, Lyric! I hope someday they will add QA TV to our local programming.
