    I learned on another thread about the Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day show on tv. Found it on the RFD channel (345 on my DirecTV), Wednesday at 2:30 (not sure how often it's on but I set my DVR to record all of them).

    I also get Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting on NY21 (a public tv channel, Channel 21 on my DirecTV) Thursdays at 3 pm.

    Are there any other shows we can look for? Please give all the information you have (network, channel on your tv, day & time).

    It's true that you can watch some of these online at their websites.

    Sewing with Nancy does some shows about quilting. It's on my local PBS station.

    You can see parts of Simply Quilts at HGTV.com. BOOOOO HGTV for taking that off.

    I think Simply Quilts got too expensive for the network...and Alex and Ricky decided they could make more money on the internet, charging for their videos on there. Anyway, I sure miss that show!! :thumbdown:

    Fons & Porter in our area is on ValleyPublic TV on Saturday mornings at 8:30. However, we only get to see 3 in a row, and then they do fund raising for 3 weekends and it gets bumped. I don't like that they do that. I love that show, and I miss it when it's not on.

    I do get Sewing with Nancy, and it's on a different station - don't recall which one. It's on at times I am not at home, so I record.

    Quilt In a Day is on the Catholic station here...isn't that weird? I also have to record that one, as it's on during the day.

    Both America Sews Creatively and America Quilts Creatively. They both have quilt segments.

    Lap Quilting with Georgia Bonesteel is another one.

    Quilting Arts

    Kaye's Quilting Friends

    Martha Pullen has a show too, lots of heirloom, but also quilting too.

    I watch all of these on my local PBS channels.

    I THINK DISH took off RFD. They are almost like WalMart - discontinuing everything!

    We have Dish (250 channels) and I found RFD on (I think) ch#231 here, thanks to this thread.

    My sister has Comcast and they quit offering HGTV late last year.

    Hi There is
    sewing with Nancy on USF (channel 16) public tv in Florida. M-F at 8:00 a.m. Also, there is a different show at 8:30 M-F. On USF, too. (That's WUSF). Good luck.

    I managed to dredge up Fons & Porter on PBS, but based on the one episode I've seen, that show's all about all the high-priced tools/toys with not a lot of interest in the quilter with a less than bottomless wallet.

    Thanks for that tip. I usually don't go past channel 312. RFD is on 345 and Quilt in a day is on at 12:30 a.m. (now I just have to find out the time zone and set my DVR)

    I am thinking of paying 34.99 to Join F&P qnn.tv. They have shows 24/7. Also get magazine and other coupons from sponsors. YOu can go on qnn.tv and watch their free shows too.

    I usually watch Martha Pullen on the BYU network. She is on M-F at 6:30 AM and reruns at 6:30 PM. I would much rather watch Martha Pullen before work, it sure beats the news.

    Thank you, thank you newestnana for this thread. I have Dish Network. I found Quilt in a Day on RFDTV. A channel I never watch.
    Thank you, craftmama, for Martha Pullen on BYUTV. It's on channel 9403 here. I certainly never looked that far down and I love heirloom.
    And thanks amma for your list, I'm still checking for those.
    Are there any more out there?
