    So, does that mean Nancy Zieman will switch from Baby Lock to Bernina??? And what about the F&P ads for the APQS machines?

    I have no idea ... hope she is not ill ... or they parted ways ??

    I met them at Quilt Market in Houston about 10 yrs ago, they were so much fun to talk to, you felt like you'd known them forever
    They've been doing this for about 20 yrs, maybe she just needs a break - I know I would !

    They are hosting a quilting cruise together too. I heard about it from a Keepsake quilting email. Whoa, does it look expensive!

    I hope this is all it is, I am an optimist and would rather have her leave to spend more time with her family rather than she and Marianne parting ways. I welcome the change to Babylock. I have a viking and babylock and always felt left out of the Bernina club. Can't afford a Bernina (but would love to have one!!!)

    I was wondering the same thing. Not a huge fan of the daughter, but its probably because I got used to Maryann and Liz together.
    As for the sponser ... nice to see someone other than Bernina. Baby Lock makes a good machine. A few of their shows were geared toward attachements that were Bernina attachments, and they failed to show alternate methods. If bernina wants a show ...call if the Bernina show .
    Maybe the change could be a good thing. There was still good information but I sometimes found their methods to be lacking in newer techinique(s).

    Do you know what station it comes on? Since I moved & have a different sattelite I can't ever find them.

    Last year, there were a number of shows with only one of them hosting... I thought maybe it was so they could each have some more free time...
    I hope it is just for one season and then Liz comes back.

    I just saw Marianne & her daughter, Mary. She announced that the new season, and this is the first show of the series, (Series 1500) is with her daughter. That Liz has decided to leave television and retire and spend more time with her grandchildren. I don't care for the show with her daughter, either. Maybe we need to give Mary a chance. Just have watched Liz for so long . . .. I did notice very slight change in attitute in the last season. Wondered whether there was a problem with their relationship. Probably will never know.

    ON the Fons and Porter show this past weekend it was just Marianne and her daughter. They announced that Liz was taking some time off to be with her grandchildren. They also introduced Babylock as their new sponsor for this 1600 series of shows.
