    We have "DISH" service and I was wondering if there are TV programs offered that feature quilting information. My husband has so much programing blocked that I never see anything listed. Of course I am not allowed to touch his "clicker". But I do have another set in the guest room I could use.

    I had to laugh at your question (sorry). If my husband blocked channels and called the clicker his, he'd be looking for a new clicker.....from the garage!!!!!!!

    Fons & Porter have weekly shows on PBS, so does Nancy Ziemann and sewing with sue, I DVR all these shows and they are really great. Eleanor Burns also has quilt shows on each week. All worth watching

    I have Dish also and I don't know of any quilting programs. I have been looking but maybe not at the right days or times. Maybe someone else will know.

    If my husband wasn't an invalid, he WOULD find himself sitting in the middle of the road or tied to a tree for the mountain lions. Its just easier to humor himself. I have my quilting and all you folks; and I don't share that with him, so we are even :twisted:

    You can unblock and make your own list of TV programs to watch. He has his list, you have yours. We have four different lists and its easy to move from one to the other.

    You can search for programs. Use the following buttons from the remote: Menu, 2 (Themes & Search), right arrow to Keyword, select. Using the arrows and select button type in the word quilt. In the search by option select info. Arrow down to "Done" when you are done. This will take you back to the previous screen. Arrow over to "Get Results" and press select. The system will search all the available programing for anything that matches your search selections. You can do the same search for the word sewing. You may have to repeat the search about every week as the new programing is loaded.

    I just did this to get the instructions right... and it came up with Fons and Porter!! Woo woo

    I had to laugh because this reminds me of a cartoon. Where the guy on the couch can't figure out why the channel keeps changing to animal planet. And his dog is standing behind him with the remote!

    Your PBS stations would be part of the local offerings. Most show some quilting shows on Saturday - early - morning. We get Sewing With Nancy, Quilt In A Day & Quilting Arts. Sometimes they out Fons & Poter on instead of Quilting Arts.
    Ours starts at 7:00 AM. Nothing on during the daytime weekdays.

    I have Directv, but also know that you can get Quilt in a Day with Eleanor Burns, she is my most favorite and have learned more from her than ANYONE else. You can also go onto Quilt in a Day on the internet and view her videos there, she has lots of them and believe me, she makes them soooooo easy and beautiful.

    Does Dish have PBS? I can't find it. I know Direct had it.
