    My Fons and Porter quilting program on BYU Tv has disappeared. Has anyone else found this problem?

    It's not on any more? I really like Fons and Porter. I had Fons for a class at a Quiltfest in Pigeon Forge, Tn. Great class.

    I get it on Create TV also, about 2 or 3 times a week. I also get it on PBS on Saturdays.

    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.

    Ok the Create channel. Thanks

    Channel PBS 20-2 antenna wise, at 9:30am every morning. Old shows though, on 1400 and 1500 series! Already seen them a long time ago! No new shows, and can't find them on PBS 44 anymore

    I was looking for it on DirecTV the other day. It is listed on BYU at 11:00a.m. here on Thursday. I wanted to remember to watch it today...and darn it I forgot. I had watched it before and thought sure it was listed more than once a week.

    Sewing with Nancy was listed only 1 day a week too. I can't remember if it is tomorrow or it was today. I'll have to check again.

    I still receive them with DISH on semi-local PBS station (it is about 50-60 miles away vs the station that is only 10 miles). All are on Saturday moring.

    Well, I.m sure that you all made a pledge to the PBS station that carried the program. Even if you get it via cable, the PBS station gets nothing from your cable company. If you want to see these shows, you need to support them!!!!

    Mine has disappeared to. Haven't been able to find it on the BYU tv channel anywhere. Wish I could find out what happened.

    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. :(
