Create TV is a by channel of PBS, not PBS channel. Most tvs need the digital HD antenna to pick it up.

bummer... I'm not sure I get those channels. I'll have to steal the remote control from my husband and check it out.

That was my favorite portion of the marathon; too bad it's at the end. Liz Porter is such a treasure. I smiled at Mary Fons' comment about wanting to absorb all the advice she could from Liz. Marianne Fons and Liz Porter had such a great show. I enjoy watching Mary on the new show. She's a natural and seems like someone I'd like as a friend or neighbor.

I still prefer traditional to contemporary quilts. I think I'm going to buy that Hero's Tribute pattern by Liz... love those eight-point stars!

I could not find it using the remote. I went on Comcast's website, put in my address and got an alphabetical listing of channels for my area. It is Channel 266 for me. I did not even know I could get channels that high as I only pay for Basic Cable, but, I am watching it now.

I have watched a couple, but did record them. They are running the 6-hour quilt marathon again today, so I'm recording it again as a couple of the shows did not turn out well, as we get interference on that channel. The best of show quilt, with the unbelievable needle turn applique and quilting, I especially loved the unicorn in the front with a castle in the background, what a gorgeous quilt.

I keep forgetting to check that channel -- we have so many channels and I don't watch most of them and it is buried in the don't watch section.
