    I watch all the quilting shows except Alex Anderson whenever I want.
    For 24 dollars a year you get it all on QNNTV on the web.
    It used to be free but Fons and Porter bought the web site and now it costs.
    Quilterstv is still free but not near as many programs. Lots of Quilt in a Day.

    I watch it here in Maine. I just entered all my quilting show into my DVR recorder and it records when they are on.

    I must say I enjoy Fons and Porters shows more then most because they really explain techniques to those of us who are visual learners. I save the episodes I might us in the future.

    Alfie,

    We're under Time Warner Northeast (we live about halfway between Cleveland and Columbus). It's on at 7:30 a.m. most Saturday mornings on WOSU, one of the PBS stations. WOSU is out of Columbus, from Ohio State. Sewing with Nancy is also on at 7:30 on another station, then a different episode is on WOSU at 8:00 following Fons & Porter.

    I just did a search and discovered Fons & Porter (it's called Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting) is also on at 7:00 a.m. Saturday mornings on WVIZ channel 5, which is out of Cleveland. Like Sewing With Nancy, it's a different episode than the one on WOSU, which is neat. I just set it to record that episode, too. I noticed it's also on WIZHD, which is channel 411 here at 7:00 a.m., but we don't get that channel.

    While I was searching, I found Quilt in a Day on two different times on a different channel and got all excited, but when I checked I discovered we don't get that channel. :(

    Hope you can find it in your area! :)

    Here, too. The oil painting shows and the sewing/quilting shows have been replaced with children's cartoons. Kids are so over-cartooned and they add more. YUK.

    I have been watching Nancy Zieman and Fons and Porter plus many other quilting shows for several years. They are great.

    Some of you may know about the online shows, but if not

    you can check out Alex Anderson and Ricky Tim's, and QNN online you can buy memberships into these and watch oh so many quilting shows anythime you want. Fons and Porter also has memberships online for their shows.

    Happy quilting to all, Teri 8)

    I looked for Fons and Porter's on my local PBS station, but they don't carry it :( We don't get any regular quilting shows, it would seem.

    On the upside, if you go to the Fons and Porter website, you can buy a video membership for $20, and watch ALL the videos whenever you want. I looked through the episode listings, and it all looks really helpful and interesting, so I went ahead and bought a membership.

    Imiss the show as it was. Liz Porter is very missed. I can't stand Pokey Bolton and the removal of Simply Quilts was such a loss. It seems that the television people are only interested in reality TV and murder shows etc. I love the new computer access we have but some are not comfortable with the computer so a whole group of people have been just pushed aside with the loss of good sewing and quilting shows. I guess that is called "Progress"

    Our PBS station in Lubbock has picked it back up. It comes on at noon on Mondays here, I think. Now it is MaryAnn and her daughter, Mary. I miss Liz, but still enjoy the show.

    We don't get any quilting shows except when Nancy does a quilting series. But, I found that on Eleanor Burns website you can watch her programs! It was like a little fix for my habit when I found that out!!

    From what I understand, Liz decided to retire to spend more time with her grandbabies.

    I've been DVRing them for ages. I only just started understanding what some of their shows are about the last couple seasons.

    I am very saddened to see that Liz isn't on the show this season. While I appreciate Mary's newness to the show and has definitely increased the amount of showtime for people who are beginners (I've understood every show so far this season) I miss Liz. It's also odd that, since she is obviously such a huge part of the show and franchise, that they haven't said word one about what she's doing.

    Last season, it looked like she lost a bit of weight, especially in her face. I wonder if she's been ill or something.

    Almost makes me wonder how much mail they've gotten about it.

    p.s. definitely miss Simply Quilts. That was a great show.

    Simply Quilts is the one I miss the most, too. She had such a great assortment of guests who did all types of designing and quilting. I loved Bille Lauder and Dianne McClun and Laura Nownes. Also Mary Ellen Hopkins and of course Eleanor Burns always caught my attention.

    I was at one of Martha Pullen's Sewing Schools when Alex was a guest speaker. She had brought tons of quilts which she passed around for us to feel and study. I also got to visit with her in her booth. Of course we have a picture of that. What left an impression with me about her quilts (except for the fact that her hand quilting was so great!) was that she just pieced pieces of fabric from her stash in big blocks (no real pattern to them) to make the backs.

    Our public TV station has dropped all sewing shows. Boooo!

    For those of you on Dishnetwork, Fons and Porter is on BYUTV at 5:30 pm central time, Monday thru Friday. It is showing the new season, whereas the local PBS station is showing the older seasons. For what it's worth, BYUTV is on channel 9403 on Dish.

    If you have internet you can watch all the quilting shows anytime you want. There are lots of online quilt show sites, some pay membership and some free. QIAD has free shows, Quilter's TV is free, and YouTube has hundreds of quilting shows made for YouTube by quilt bloggers and professionals.
