    Remember when HGTV had shows like Alex Anderson's and other sewing shows? Where did they go? Or how about the gardening shows? I wrote to them and express my wishes but, alas, it apparently did no good. :thumbdown:

    I was wondering the same thing. I am getting tired of tearing down walls and real estate show. I think there are so many new ways to do quilting that I would love for them up date the shows.

    Gosh, with all the quilters on this board, we should be able to make some impact. I agree!

    Add my vote! I once watched HGTV all the time because of the craft/sewing/quilting and gardening shows. Now I rarely watch.

    I don't watch it any more. Too many real estate shows.

    I used to watch Alex Anderson, Carol Duval (crafts) and other sewing/craft shows on HGTV. They haven't been on for many years now. As mentioned by others, it's all real estate stuff, (my 1st home, vaca homes, 2nd homes over seas), complete rehabs, even though I like watching them, not too interested in them

    That would be great if they put quilting and sewing shows back on!

    I was wondering why I couldn't find any quilting or sewing programs on TV. We get plenty of channels. I didn't know they took them off the air. I wasn't home long enough before to watch. What a shame now that I am.

    A lot of the PBS channels are having some good shows, quilting arts, Martha Pullen, Georgia Bonesteel. They call it the "Createtv network." google create tv and you can pull up the times and dates and channels in your area.

    I spent my pregnancy watching those shows. I knew I was destined to be a quilter.

    I guess the times are changing and so are the shows. Everyone seems to want to "do id yourself" which is great but what about all us crafters???????

    I have written to them too. I used to watch HGTV every morning and loved it! I never watch anymore. I thought they would switch the sewing shows to DIY but no. So sad!

    Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims have an online show called Quiltshow.com? I subscribed to it for a year for 40 bucks, it wasn't worth it. I don't really have an interest in shows where the hosts go someplace and show us other people's quilts, I want tutorials. There are some tutes on the quiltshow.com but once I've seen them, I'm done with the site. Disappointing. There are discussion boards, but this one is so much better.
