    Has anyone did this? It looks lovely but don't know if it's worth the money. Our local station has very few sewing shows on anymore.

    I used to view it when it was free, but I prefer quilterstv.com these days as it is free and has many videos that can be viewed easily. Also kayewood has a tv free video viewing if you check out her site.

    I like both sites.
    Watched QNN before when it was free and liked it alot.
    Now it is owned by Fons and Porter and costs 24 bucks a yr. Which is not bad since it has every show except Alex Anderson. It is video on demand so you can watch whatever show you want. The best part is you can watch full screen.
    I like Quilterstv also and watch it alot but takes some practice to find the shows you want to see again once it is archived. Also it is not full screen.
    It has different shows and people than you see on QNN so it is nice to watch both.

    I joined and I really like it. I can't seem to find any quilting shows on TV anymore :( It's really convenient - when you have a few free minutes you can search their videos for specific topics or just scroll through the list of shows and episodes and pick what you want to watch. I like it.

    I love the video viewings online! I just wished I could copy them to watch when needed later...I have fear of starting a project w/someone and then would need to reference back and it not be there. Does anyone ever deal w/this themselves??Skeat

    The videos on kayewoodTV.com are always available 24/7 and always FREE. We add new videos regularly, but keep the previous videos on our website.

    I joined QNNtv through the Quilters Club of America, and I absolutely feel it is worth the money. $24 a year isn't that much, and I like being able to go to exactly the show I want and to see it in full screen. As I purchase books, like an Eleanor Burns book, I can make a note inside the book of the series that covers those projects - and it makes it very easy to find the show when I go to do a specific project.

    Skeat, one of the advantages to QNNtv is that the series stay up once they're put on the website; I find that with Quilters TV it is either hit or miss, or it is a pain to find the one you're looking for. I think there may be a legal issue with capturing the video from either of these sites. I feel your pain tho; one of these days I hope to move out into the boondocks, and I know my cable internet will be gone :cry:

    Roben...thanks for the info..I've been thinking of the QNN...will defin. check that out more seriously:))Now moving out to the country w/no cable is actually a blessing:))I love it and that comes from a person that use to have full serve cable. If you get desperate, you can do a dish of some type..but in my area doesn't offer quilting unless the rare occassion it would be on hgtv...so, not worth another payment here of $50 to just watch the news from elsewhere:))I love to quilt as I watch these shows and one of these days I will figure out a system in my room to be able to do both from the computer(instead of losing quilting time vs computer-office time). We all have lost our valuable vcr recording buttons w/the new dvds!!:))So, I live for the fons and porter, and sewing w/nancy (even though I don't sew clothes) on saturday mornings here on our local pbs station:))for over an hour I have sewing and a learning station on all at once...that is the life!!:))Skeat
