    New idea--humorous, not serious

    Seems like on TV, there is one reality show after another. I told my hubby we need to come up with a quilty reality show...In Search of Fabric...Touring the Quilt Shops. He popped out with what I think would be a winner: Show Us Your Stash!

    Any other ideas here?

    and combine with Real Stories from the ER...

    needle through the finger
    sliced by a rotary cutter
    near drowning in fabric.

    You may laugh at this - however there was a visiting ER Doc here, he quilts -- and has made a study of rotary blade injuries...you wouldn't believe some of his stories!

    That's because you're in the sewing room and not any other part of the house quilting. LOL!

    Forget Reality - I want a game show where we can win prizes�� fabric, notions, machines, storage, irons, lessons with Quilting personalities, fabric, gift cards to online fabric stores, tools, fabric- well you get the idea.

    All of the suggestions sound like fun. I am happy to see that I am not the only person who hates "reality" shows. It is just a way to get out of paying actors 3 million dollars an episode for some 20 minute sitcom. I would be more than willing to watch one based on quilting.

    How about "Name that Pattern", but with a part of it missing....Or, my favorite.."find the missing piece of fabric"

    I would definitely watch "Show Us Your Stash", but would be green with envy every episode. And I would also watch "Show Us Your UFO's" with envy. If "Are You Smarter Than a Quilter" concentrated on geometry and math questions, the Quilter would win every time.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Long time ago there was a show call "Queen for a Day". They would have several wives that were contestants. The idea was the host told the story of the guests lives. These were "sob stories" about their lives...how hard they worked, the pains and illnesses of the family, her dedication (subissiveness), etc. The stories were just heartbreaking and always a tear-jerker. The panel of judges would question the wives the based on their sob-story and their individual answers, the judges would award them with glorious prizes...washer and dryers (new in that era), vacuum cleaners, irons, fantastic household appliances to make their lives easier (! Give them a vacation from housework, not something to do more with!). anyway, I want "Quilter for a Day". My sob-story...my room is always a mess, my laundry and house work is building up, my quarter inch seam is illusive, etc. My "prizes"? A professional organizer to design my room. A world-win tour of fabulous quilt stores, a credit card with unlimited spending, the used of any kind of machine I wanted, first pick of every line of fabric before it hits the stores. You name your prize. I want it all!
    I want to be contestant number one...I tearfully submit my sob-story for your consideration.
