    Does anyone her on the board belong to QNN TV? I am thinking about joining. I am the type of person who needs to see how to do something instead of reading it in a book. I'm not sure of joing this or investing in dvd's with books or what. There are no quilting classes near me. I thought about joining a guild, but all of them meet in the evenings and with my M.S., well that is when all energy is depleted. Please tell me what you all think.

    thanks
    Tammy

    I would check out all the free quilting videos on youtube.com first.

    I have a subscription to QNN tv - I love it - there are several different shows on there and several seasons - I like checking out different techniques and the talent.

    Can I ask your honest opinion? Do you feel you have learned a good bit from it? Do you think a newbie as myself would benifit from it?

    I agree that You Tube has a gazillion videos on quilting. Some better than others. Also, Eleanor Burns has her shows on her website, free.

    I joined "the quilt show" with Alex Anderson & Ricky Tims and I love it. I have been a Quilter for 20+ yrs. And I have learned so many short cuts from these super teachers. It is worth every penny for the enjoyment and knowledge of learning from the best.

    I think The Quilt Show is a great value for the money, especially if you don't have the opportunity (distance, budget, time) to take classes or go to shows.

    It's really too bad they took down a lot of the HGTV Simply QUilts videos. They contained an amazing amount of information - not just on techniques, but on the quilting world in general. And regardless of Alex's early helmet hairstyles, piecing a 9-patch was the same 10 years ago as it is today. I found them very helpful. And, at the time, I had a collection of them on tapes to rewatch. I've since tossed them but I know others have recorded all episodes.

    I'm surprised that HGTV doesn't offer them in a DVD format - no extras, no frills, just transfer the shows. Group a bunch of seasons in each package. Even though I don't need it anymore, I'd probably buy it.

    I've not viewed QNNTV yet, but it's also a great value. I'll probably check it out as well. Thanks.

    But the best most recent information I have found is Sharon Schmaber's videos on her techniques on youtube. I know her online venue is kinda of pricey, but that information - and the level of detail she goes into - might justify the cost.
