    Quilting Arts TV Show

    Does anyone watch this? It is mostly about art quilts and techniques which I don't do, but, find very interesting. It is on one of our PBS stations. Here is the website.

    I catch it once in awhile. Not much that I'm interested in though.

    I've been a subscriber to the magazine since the very beginning (over 10 years) and would love to be able to get broadcasts of QATV. I get PBS channels from 3 different states here and none of them carry it.

    We have it here in Corpus Christi. From 9:30 to 12:00 PBS is all about quilts and sewing. They used to have one about embroidery. That one was boring. Too slow moving. It was hand embroidery. One show does have a little of everything. Just have to check your local channels.

    I have watched it but didn't get much from it. Got more from when we had a great quilt camp down here and I attended that. This show is too artsy farty for me... and ... the moderator is not my cuppa for teaching. That's just me, though.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I'm not at all interested in making the art quilts Pokey does, but some of her techniques are interesting---------and useful.

    SEW IT ALL (forget which network) has supper simple stuff -which I could do without any instruction, just by looking at it. It has to be very useful for unseasoned sewers.

    It comes on the Houston PBS on Saturday mornings, alternating seasons with Fons & Porter. I mainly watch it hoping to catch the FMQ segments, but it is interesting to see the segments on other techniques. And I feel like I can at least keep up when art quilters are talking about various techniques and treatments, even if I will never do them. It also comes on the Create channel, which is a PBS offshoot, at 5:00 a.m. once a week along with another sewing show and the knitting & crocheting show I enjoy.

    I just found it the other day and am Tivo-ing a few of the shows. I'm not into art quilts but I'll watch and see how I like it.

    We only get one PBS station here on U-Verse and it only has what quilts are done on Sewing With Nancy. We used to have Fan's and Porter but they stopped showing it. Sure wish we got more.

    The host, Pokey, drives me absolutely batty! She just seems like an airhead and inexperienced about what is on the show.

    Too funny. Pokey (Patricia) Bolton is the Founding Editor of Quilting Arts Magazine, now in it's 12th year. It was totally her idea and she had complete control until she recently stepped down in order to head up the International Quilt Festival. She remains the head of QATV, not just the host. Her husband (an attorney) is the Publisher of Quilting Arts. Both know, in minute detail, all there is to know about the shows, the websites, the forums, the shops, the books, the CDs, the magazines and everything else within the empire they have built. Definitely not an inexperienced airhead.

    Oh, I had no doubt she was very experienced; you can't get a quilt show without knowing something. She just doesn't come off that way.

    I watch it occasionally on the San Bernardino station in Southern California. It come after Fons & Porter. Pokey does like to make art quilts but I find it interesting to watch occasionally. Contact your local PBS station and tell them that you want to see some quilting show. They also have access to some knitting shows.

    I think show hosts have to act dumb and ask obvious questions to let their guests shine. Notice it a lot of cooking and woodworking shows, too.

    Her and Sue Hausmann from the old America Quilts show. They both have a lot of knowledge, just something about the way it was presented.

    Sue is the one that drives me crazy - I only watched a few times. She is so rude to some of the guests. One gentleman she kept talking over - not just once or twice but for the entire time. I thought the idea of having guests was to let them present their ideas/projects.

    I like to watch Quilting Arts even though I would not do 99 percent of the things shown. I did make the messenger bag after it was shown. It does give me ideas sometimes. A different perspective. My major complaint about the show is that they should have only one guest and give them more time to demonstrate their techniques/patterns.

    They replaced the good quilt shows with Quilting Arts in my area for awhile.
    Did not like it at all.
    Now once a week its Fons and Porter, which is much better. Just wish they had more quilting shows.
    Used to get El Burns on the rural station but thats gone now.
