    If you missed the CBS special below is the information where you can see it now on vidio free. I just watched it and it is good. Especially seeing some of the quilts and Ricky Tims quilts at the show. Go watch it. Have Fun!

    If you missed it, the video of this entire segment is now posted
    on the CBS website at
    http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/sunday/main3445.shtml

    look for the video "Quilts-for-sale."
    We also encourage everyone to email CBS ([email protected]) and thank them for the exposure.
    We encourage all industry professionals and all quilting
    consumers to view the video link and help spread the word.

    Please send this notice to your email list or to anyone who you
    think might be interested. This opportunity to capture new
    quilters will strengthen our industry. Let's band together as a
    quilting community and make this video the number #1 video on the
    CBS website. That in itself will speak volumes in letting them
    know their efforts were appreciated. It is uncertain how long the
    video will be posted so act now.

    That was an excellent video. That one quilt though was WOW and that was the quilt of the people's faces in the background with the Angel in the foreground holding the world. That was AMAZING :)

    Thanks for sharing the post. One of the ladies on the video was from my quilt guild here. I didn't know she was going to the quilt show.

    Patsy's Mom, I have never seen the word rueing use in a sentance or much less ever heard it spoken. The only reason I know the word is because I do crosswords and it seems to be a fav. with puzzle makers. Where are you from?

    I am in northern California, about an hour north of San Francisco. Back when I was teaching, my Jr. high students used to complain that I used "weird" words! It is even easier to use them in print. :-)

    Hm, a teacher, :D . Did you notice my typo sentence (sentance) ? I would kind of agree with them. I could not see my self saying to someones feelings that were hurt "I rue for you" lol

    I just received an email message that says my email to CBS was returned because [email protected] is not a valid address. Anyone else having this problem?

    It work for me I missed it because I was at a quilt retreat for 3 days.
    I went to see Alex Anderson last week and she told us to watch it, but she wasn't sure what sunday it would air.

    How much fun would that be!!!!!!!! The forum for About.com did a get together in NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains. From what I read they had a great time. We realy should think of something like that. But I hope it is in the future so I can save some money!!!! :D
