Long time no see, eh? Don’t faint–it’s a new blogpost! It has been crazier busier than usual in my life, which is saying something. Lots of quilt made, shows entered, accepted in more than half, taped 3 segments for QA TV in March, went to a dyeing fabric workshop in Massachusetts, son’s wedding came and went (three days ago), it was perfect. It was a DIY (do it yourself) affair with daughter-in-law and me planning, and me absolutely delightedly doing a LOT of the prep. I’m so happy it came off without a hitch, was perfect (will try to share pics before too long). So now I get to SHARE all this good stuff I’ve been doing. First is that I am on Quilting Arts again, episodes 2001, 2007 and 2012. The series will air on PBS this fall but you can purchase the series at Interweave now; this link is to the download, but a DVD of the series is also available here.
On the 2001 show, the first of the season, host Susan Brubaker Knapp and I talk about how to get from where you are to being a professional, our own journeys on that path, and things we’ve learned about ourselves and how we each found our own “thing” in the industry. You can see a recap of episode 2001 here. Since I’ve known Susan for years, it is so relaxing to be around her, and she is such a professional and skilled at guiding those not used to being on camera all the time. Thank you so much to Susan, Quilting Arts Editor Vivika Hansen deNegre and all at QA TV for inviting me to be on again and making the process so wonderful.
If you go to the page link for Episode 2001 and click on the photo (seen above) you’ll even get a download link to my hints and tips about finding your own path to being a quilting professional.
