    they list episodes airing 8:30am EST through at least mid March. all re-runs, i assume, but who cares? and, there was this information posted, too:

    "NEW! Visit the Simply Quilts Video Center! Now you can watch Alex Anderson and her guests from Simply Quilts any time. Fresh episodes with printable instructions added every week.
    Coming soon! Rate My Quilt. Upload photos and details of your quilting projects, rate others and share your ideas. Check back for details!"

    the videos are only a few minutes each - not complete episodes. but they make a nice intro and have links to the associated instructions.

    http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/pac_ctnt_988/text/0,,HGTV_22056_58466,00.html

    i'm looking forward to the Rate My Quilt thing. ought to be interesting.

    my DIAL-UP makes it near impossible to get any video clips that are watchable. I did see the posted ads when watching the show this past week.
    and what is up with the word, "exactly"?????!
    Do they tell all the guests to say "exactly" when on-air and agreeing? :roll: :roll: :roll:

    Miranda, that's my mother's pet peeve. EXACTLY gets on her nerves so bad because of that.

    "Whatever!" is my peeve as well... because my teens end every sentence with it (when talking to each other.... not to me)! & that's how I feel...To ACCURATELY describe it. :lol:

    Patrice, thanks for letting us know about the online show clips... NOW I'll NEVER get anything done!!! :shock: I have sent HGTV an email every month for the past 2 years because I (like so many others) work all week outside of my home & they refused to show any of the shows (even once) on the weekend. C'mon they can replace at least 1 gardening show during the Fall/Winter!! BTW, have y'all heard Alex Anderson & Ricky Tims have a show starting April 1st, & for the $16 membership fee you can watch EVERY episode online for a year? (The fee seems well worth it to me since I'll never be able to catch it on tv... & all of that bandwidth is EXPENSIVE for the site providers.)

    you looked too bored and like you had too much money cluttering your pockets
    :mrgreen:

    obtw ... there was a time some years ago at which SQ ran at 6 or 6:30 on Saturdays mornings. I think Carol Duvall was right after. i used to get up early to watch. i guess they didn't realize that because we work waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay into the night on our quilts .... then are up at dawn tending to the people and chores we neglected for our quilts that it probably wasn't the best time to catch the most viewers. i'm thinkin ... oh ... say ... 9 or 10? during the first breather and relaxing cuppa?

    anway, as you said, no more weekends with Alex. who's the really kewl lady ... ellen something i think ... who's there in at least a few episodes. she's a hoot.
    rats! now i'll have to go fishing around until it figure it out! or it'll come to me at 2am and wake me up.
    mummble, grumble, razzle, frazzle ....

    DIY Network is still showing Simply Quilts every afternoon but Thursday at 2:30 p.m. EST....just in case anyone wants to watch some more reruns. :)

    Patrice - was the Ellen perhaps Eleanor Burns?

    It was Mary Ellen Hopkins. She is a hoot! I wonder if she's still in business, though. Her website used to have links to the patterns and books she had for sale, then it was just information about her seminars. that hasn't been updated in 2 years.

    Unfortunately, I can't get DYI from our cable co. We pay 54/mo and the only thing worth watching is reruns of CSI. But if you watch enough of those, you get to where you want to go out and kill someone for something new to watch! Even PBS here in Raleigh, that use to show Georgia Bonesteel doesn't show any sewing shows anymore. The popul;arity of quilting has exploded in the last few years, and it seems like no is paying attention. I heard soemone say that the Carol Duvall show is on the chopping block also. Is this true? :cry: I don't get to watch her often but she had a good show.
