    someone sent me this site link, but it was AFTER the show had aired here. Did any of you get to catch it?? Was it worth seeing??? Would you buy the DVD set to watch it again, or show at a guild meeting??

    I have had this bookmarked and have done a search on my tv frequently. I cannot find when it is airing. Somehow, I seem to remember something about possibly airing in September but I don't know where I got that information! I just wrote an e-mail to my local PBS station to see if they are going to air it. I noticed on the the website that it says a 9 part documentary AVAILABLE for public broadcasting stations, so maybe our PBS channels didn't pick it up? I will post after I get a response from my PBS channel.

    i just wrote to my local pbs station, too. i hope they will carry it. it looks quite comprehensive. it looks like a great value for $40.

    i just recieved a reply from my pbs station. they have no current plans to carry it, but will send it to the Programming Department and they said they would notify me if it gets scheduled. i may have to get some more emails sent to them :)

    I sent an email message to the contact address it gave asking for a list of pbs stations they knew of that were planning to air the documentary and got the following reply from their PR person:

    "If you go to the whyquiltsmatter facebook page we post what we are sure of there. Otherwise you have to go to your local station for listing info. Stations only post a month ahead so you will not see any future airings anywhere. Thanks for your email.. The DVD contains a number of wonderful Extras that will not appear on TV airings by the way. "
