    Just wondered what any of you know about Liz Porter not being on the show anymore. I sure miss her. Hope she'll be back again.

    This has been discussed before. Liz has moved to Texas to be with family. Marianne's daughter is now on the show. It doesn't seem to be as good as when Liz was on, but it's an adjustment for all.

    I guess I just don't like change.

    The F&P that was on in our area this Saturday had both Liz and Maryann on it. And it was a new episode...daughter-less.

    I saw that show and even though the tv schedule says it was new in 2010, I don't believe it is --- Liz and Maryann look a LOT younger....

    It could have been the very beginning of 2010 when they were finishing up taping their last season together :D:D:D

    i saw my first Fons and Porter show on Sunday...without Liz. Oh my gosh. That girl never stopped talking and then both of them were talking at the same time. Reminds me of The View! Listening from another room makes one want to turn the TV off.

    Not the same with out Liz! She was so calm!

    i never saw any with liz and maryann (i'm a pretty new quilter). i would imagine it will take a while for the daughter to get over her nervous chattering. lets give her a chance. (and yes, she seems to talk nonstop)

    First show that I saw without Liz back a few months ago...Marianne said that Liz had decided to retire and Marianne's daughter would be filling in.

    I heard that Liz wanted to be closer to family. I always thought Maryann and Liz talked over each other! So this isn't such a big change for me. In any case I hope all is well and the show continues to be successful.

    Maybe it is nerves on Mary's part - I know I talk nonstop when I am nervous. I like her because MaryAnn and Liz were so far advanced from me and I just couldn't pick up some of the stuff they were talking about, but I am learning all over again with Mary and MaryAnn. They just may fall into a really nice show. Edie

    Where are you seeing them? What channel? They aren't on here that I know of but if they were, I'd sure tune in.

    I wondered what happened to her ... well the show won't be the same, I always liked Liz & her wry sense of humor
    We visit Austin & the Hill country a lot, maybe we'll run into her at some of the LQS lol :)

    If you have a search feature on your computer..............
    enter "Youtube Quilting videos" or whatever it is you would like to view.........
    You can find loads of videos. Just takes a minute to search.

    Enjoy

    They stated that Liz wanted to spend time with her grandkids. I am in Texas for the winter, does anyone know what channel they are on on Direct TV? Back in MO they are on Sat mornings at 9:30 PBS

    I'm glad someone brough this up. I have my DVR set to tape all the episodes, and was wondering why the change. Now I know.
    Thanks. I was hopping it wasn't health issues.
    Merry Christmas to you all.
    I have many more projects on my To Do list from looking at the wonderful quilts you all have made and shown. Thanks for the insperation.(spelling?)

    I guess I can't handle change - and if it "ain't" broke, then don't fix it. Since I started quilting a few years ago, I've watched every quilting program I could find (mostly on PBS) and F&P made it fun and easy to learn. If Liz is trying to retire and is giving up the show she certainly is going to be missed, but I would rather see just Marianne go solo - with occasional guests then have Mary as co-host. Just my opinion.

    I think it is fantastic that the daughter is following in mom's footsteps. They will do just fine. Enjoyed that show I saw with them both
