Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I never heard she has been ill. so sorry to hear that. and Liz moved closer to her grandkids.

I liked the show better when it was Fons and Porter. Not real crazy about Mary and it has nothing to do with her appearance. I find that a lot of people these days look as though they haven't combed their hair nor matched their clothes. So if they are clean I just try and overlook it.

This is an interesting thread. I agree that the show is not nearly as good without Liz. Liz and Marianne had a good chemistry and I always liked their projects. Mary irritates me with the faces, wisecracks etc. I always think she doesn't know what she's doing.
I quite frankly think the magazine is not nearly as good either. I am thinking I won't renew it because the projects are not as appealing to me. I recently thumbed through a stack of their old issues (late 90's and early 2000). Now I know why I saved them. I liked almost everything in each issue.
I have always been an Eleanor Burns fan. She is an excellent teacher and I love the way she brings historical aspects of quilting into her show. I meet her last year at Sew Expo in WA state. She was just like one of us girls and was so friendly and encouraging. Nancy Zieman is also a gracious, class act lady and an excellent teacher. Meet her at Expo a few years ago and was majorly impressed with her. I love the way she teaches lots of aspects of sewing, quilting and so on. I have enjoyed reading how both of these women took their love of sewing and built a business which has prospered. They are both great role models.
I even catch old shows of Georgia Bonesteel. maybe on Create t.v. not sure. I like watching them all. now we will put this to rest. Hugs to Mary ((())) she needs them. more (())
