    Okay--- I just sent customer service at the Fons and Porter website an e-mail with a link to this message board.

    We shall wait and see....

    and Betty Jean, I did not call you a liar. Rumors require confirmation before being passed off as fact, and that story does not indicate the death of Liz Porter as it is presented on that site. Further clarification is necessary.

    That is a really heartwarming story about Dave completing those quilts for a lady named "Liz" - BUT nowhere does it say that the lady was Liz Porter. I'm fairly certain that if Liz Porter had passed we would have heard about it, and not just an aside in a small quilting article. i think perhaps someone has misconstrued this story.

    Okay---- I just opened up the response e-mail from customer service at the Fons and Porter website. (and might I add...that was a mighty quik response from them. Good customer service!)

    Here it is-- with only my real first name removed:

    *******, in the 1601 series, we informed the viewers of Liz's retirement. If you would like to put all this information on the blog, please feel welcome to do this.



    After doing TV for many years, Liz has decided to retire. She is in her 60's and would like to spend more time with her family, travel more, and play more golf! Liz decided to move to Texas where she has family and the winters are warmer than Iowa. We sincerely miss Liz and wish her the best in her retirement and have an open invitation to her if she decides retirement isn't for her. Mary Fons has stepped in as a guest co-host and Marianne is greatly enjoying quilting with her daughter. We hope you enjoy the shows as much as we do.



    If you have any other questions please feel free to write or call 1-888-985-1020 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 1-888-985-1020 end_of_the_skype_highlighting for domestic and Canada or for international callers 1-515-462-1020 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 1-515-462-1020 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

    Thank you,

    The story linked above was posted in another thread by a member of this board. The person who wrote the story is that member so no it is not Liz Porter and it wasn't from this year. I'll see if I can find the other thread.

    If you have Dish Network you can catch "Fons and Porter" on ch.9403 on the BYUTV,at 5:30am and 5:30pm same program.
    They did announce at the beginning of this season that Liz was retireing to spend more time with family.
    I feel that Mary is doing a pretty good job considering the shoes she has to fill,give her a chance,and it is always good to see mother and daughter sharing the same interest.

    I read Mary's blog and it kinda sounded like she was coming on to "save" the show,especially when she said it was already getting stale.

    I went to Winterset Iowa this past summer and met a neighbor of Liz's who was working at the John Wayne Museum a couple of blocks from the Fons & Porter Shop. She said she retired to Texas to be close to her family.
