    Here is the address, quilters. Let's bombard them with requests to put our programs back on the air or new ones that are coming out. There is power in numbers and here is the link:

    Our quilt programs were on PBS, I guess I never saw them on hgtv, but I sure will write, because they took our shows off too. And I really look forward to Eleanor Burns. Even if she's not making something that I'd want to make. I still learn something. And she is such a hoot. I just love her.

    What did you choose from the drop down box as to what this pertains to? I have to choose something or it won't send. There is nothing I see relevant. Help!!

    Just sent message. Seems like the only thing they have on now has to do with tearing something up/down and redoing. I used to have HGTV on all the time; now I rarely watch it. Hope we can do some good.

    I just dropped the box down clicked on something, not even sure what because there was nothing to click on. I figured if they get to the wrong department enough times, they might forward it to the right people. I used to watch it all the time too, but I don't have $20,000 to redo my front yard. Who cares any way, I just want to quilt. LOL

    HGTV went from my #1 channel to never! All I see is buying or selling property. I miss Alex Anderson and Susan Kaljie (sewing). Thanks for the info.

    Sent message also.

    I just sent mine in also. I used to watch HGTV all the time for the quilting and gardening shows. I am not interested in all the design and remodeling shows that are on all day long.

    I put in MESSAGE. I didn't know what else - did you notice how many shows have to do with building, fixing up and design? We are all built, fixed up and I don't want to change the inside of this house for anything - no sewing shows or anything pertaining to needle and thread and fabric (unless you are making curtains or recovering a couch.) Let's get 'em people!!! Edie

    I sent my message in just now too and there was nothing that pertained to the quilting or crafts in the drop down list.

    Hope it helps because I don't like HGTV anymore. I have a hard enough time making ends meet without redoing my house.

    Thanks for telling us where to send our comments.

    Just sent a message. Hope it helps. I've noticed even the public service stations have cut back on sewing and quilting programs. I miss them.

    Thanks for sending the web site for HGTV. I emailed them immediately with my request for quilting shows...almost a billion dollar business deserves its programming...so hopefully our input will be considered....memepeggy
