So does BYU (Brigham Young University). Early in the mornings for sure during the week. Not sure when exactly. I happened upon the shows by accident.

Each PBS station pays for and schedules their own programming. They're not like CBS or NBC where every station shows the same programming. Contact your local station and request the programming you want to see and support the programming you want to see with a donation.

Wondered the same thing! They stopped them on Athens, Cambridge, Ohio too! The only ones on are at 12:00pm Sue Hausmann and at 12:30pm Sewing with Nancy on channel 44-2! They took off Fons and Porter both at 7 am on 20-2 and 8:30 am on 44-3 and took off Sue Hausmann at 7:30 am on 20-2. Also they are no longer on Saturdays!

Moved to GA in late 2002, enjoyed 2 hours of quilt shows every weekday - and then suddenly they were gone. We have so many excellent and thriving quilt stores in North Georgia. What are those execs at PBS thinking?
