    QIAD can be found on the RFDTV. It is on Wednesday at two times, mid morning and early evening.. Her new book about Barns are being shown. My local PBS station has dropped F&P. They are probably hopefully pick up the show again when another season is produced. I have DirecTV. :cry:

    I have Dish and still get it on a PBS station at 1:30 on friday. Out local is actually called KTPS but is a Public Broadcast Station. I hope you all find it, hopefully it has changed days or times. I know Dish is still caring it.

    ALL of my fav quilting shows disappeared (with ZERO warning) from PBS for about 3 months -including Fons and Porter.

    Out of the blue... they ALL came back...and it's all GOOD again! No clue where or why it disappeared, but I'm just glad the whole lineup returned.

    I get zero on quilting, sewing,kniting, arts, & craft.
    Comcast. I use to get it on public tv. I know some people get a public tV station create it is really good. We should all e-mail - write - call our TV sevice and ask for create TV, it has alot of everything Plus cooking,travel, quilting,knitting, arts and crafts etc..

    If the PBS station is having a fund raiser, they don't show the quilt shows. If it rains and we have Dish, I don't get the programs then. LOL

    I wonder when they're going to enter the digital age and start streaming their shows online?

    Great Idea. Should we call Direct TV or PBS?

    I have DirecTV too and I noticed that it was NOT scheduled on starting on Monday. Maybe someone can find an e-mail address and we can ALL join in and send messages. I don't care if I have seen them before!! I liked seeing the older episodes with Liz. I miss her wit. :(

    You can always point out to your local PBS station that Fons and Porter Love of Quilting is FREE! Point them to this website: http://www.fonsandporter.com/our_tv_shows.html

    "Fons & Porter's "Love of Quilting" TV programs are provided free of charge to public televesion stations nation-wide and have been on the air since 2003!"

    Funny how nearly all these networks have decided that quilting or sewing at all is no longer important to them. They show us how to recreate our yards and to decorate our homes all day. I want at least one show to be dedicated to my passion.

    By the way...Where is Create TV? Is it on Dish??

    Thanks a bunch.

    I get it on Direct TV - PBS out of Houston. I really enjoy having Mom & Daughter teach together ... they are great! Love the program!

    I got them until a week ago on BYU, but no more. I have U-Verse and see no other quilt progams either. Bummer!
    I have QNN-TV also but it was nice to record and catch up later in the day.

    I watch on PBS Create and find that they repeat the shows. I just watch again and see if I missed something the first time.

    Hi- I love Eleanor & F&P. Dish has EB on RFD TV on Wed. My local PBS stations have F&P on Wed AM and Sat AM. Maybe BYU TV is changing the schedule or something. Hope you get your shows back soon.
