    I did another search tonight and found that Fons & Porter has been switched from BYU to PBS here in the Harrisburg, Pa area...DirecTV. I'll have to double check but I think it said one day a week for 1/2 hour. Big whoop...LOL.

    I'm in Houston area and was recording on my DVR - Recordings stopped 8/18 that's the last date I have a copy of. It was coming from BYU channel. Can't tell you more than that. Maybe the series just runs during the summer months...

    Mine too on Direct TV. It was replaced with Why Quilts Matter, History Politics ETC. It's interesting, but I miss Fons and Porter.

    I got up at 7 a.m. this morning to watch the Fons and Porter program on PBS out of Detroit and there was some guy painting a lily. I was not pleased!
    :(

    :thumbdown:

    I guess this means that I can sleep in on Saturday mornings now.

    Do you know where to find the Search feature on DirecTV? Using your remote once you find it you can use Keyword and put in sewing...when I used the word QUILTING nothing came up. Keyword SEWING gave me the info for Sewing With Nancy. You can also search for shows. Use the title of the show ie...Fons and Porter and see if it comes up for you. What I ended up doing was using Menu and then pushing the green button which is +12 (hours) since I figured it wouldn't be on at night or real early in the morning...and just went through every show on our PBS station from like 6 AM till I found it listed.

    I also saw something under sewing...Martha's Sewing Room...which I guess is Martha Stewart. I am not a fan of her but if that's the limit of what I can watch here...3 1/2 hour shows a week I guess I will break down and watch her show too.

    When I check what else is on our PBS station...it's still a lot of the same shows my kids (now ages 41 and 39) watched when they were little. JMHO but come on...don't they think us adults want to watch more than 1 1/2 hours a week of something geared to our age/interest. I can find a LOT of cooking shows...that I sometimes watch...but it really is NOT my thing.

    No, Martha's Sewing room is a different Martha (Pullman?) can't remember her last name but she does a lot of hand stitching and vintage type stuff.

    No Fons and Porter quilting for me either.
    Where is Eleanor Burns on Dish I did a search but came up empty handed. Maybe a channel I don't get.

    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 cable....thanks for the info....I think part of my problem is I seem to always be at work these days...lol....but used to set my alarm for 7:30 am just to watch them, the first day I got up and they weren't on I was slightly irritated...considering I had worked till 1 am the night before...lol

    It is worth the money to have a DVR. Just getting rid of commercials is worth the cost. 20 minutes of each hour is commercials.
    Being able to record all your favorite programs then watch when you want is wonderful.

    The show is still in production with Marianne Fons and her daughter Mary, they're showing the 1800 series now on most PBS channelsl (Saturday mornings). I understand some of the cable companies have dropped the show.
    I miss Fons and Porter, not so crazy about Fons and daughter. Maybe its just me, but the projects just don't seem as interesting - I think I just miss Liz, understand she wanted to spend more time with grandkids.
