    All of her shows can be watched on her website, she has them all available there to watch, going all the way back.

    I got to spend today with Eleanor in Melbourne, took her Magnolia Bud quilt class. She is a great teacher and so down to earth. She autographed any of her books for us and had a photo session. The quilt went together so nicely (or should I say the blocks) and I hope to finish the quilt in the very near future. I also got to see Eleanor in Houston last year at both a mini trunk show and a demonstration of one of her rulers. She has so much energy.

    I love El... she is so down to earth. I have learned a lot from her. Jenny Doan is the QUEEN of pre cuts and her whole family is so talented that they just gush the happiness of quilting. A great day for me is watching videos of the how to make quilts whether I have any wine or not.
    I am the sew n sew my Mother made.

    Eleanor has some great stuff, but her voice is anything BUT soothing to me. I agree that Jenny Doan is calm and easy to listen to. Her tutorials are so easy to follow also.

    When I was living with mom last year, her and I would sit and watch Martha Pullen, Fons and Porter, Nancy Ziemann and "that crazy lady" every sunday together. Eleanor is great. I love how when she is piecing she just goes off into a story while sewing that usually has nothing to do with sewing or quilting. She just goes on and on, sometimes wonder if she realizes she is chattering. LOL always made me laugh to watch her.

    I would watch Fons and Porter for designs, then go hunt up eleanors method of doing the same thing cause it was invariably easier to do Eleanor's way.

    I hope one day to meet her, she truly is an inspiration. She reminds me of that Auntie that everyone wants to have
