Here I am on set, getting ready for my segment. The set looks fabulous, but hey would you expect anything less from Quilting Arts.
Before rolling tape we went through the segment with the producer and talked about what the sequence would be. My segment was scheduled to take 3 minutes. It is amazing how little you can cover in three minutes, especially when 30 seconds of that time was set aside for a look at my quilt Primordial Sea.
This is what it looks like from the other side of the table.And I guess this is what I will look like on tv. This is the monitor in the green room. We got to see each other taping, but we never got to see our own. That is probably a good thing.
In the green room with the quilts I brought.
Lesley Riley also taped today. She had several 90 second spots! They are great information packed little segments. be sure to visit Lesley, Frances and Pam Ruperts blogs to read what they wrote about the experience. Pokey is going to be blogging about the show too, but she is a little busy right now, so check the Quilting Arts blog for the latest news real soon.
Frances Alford snapping shots in the green room. Late in the afternoon Beryl Talyor came by the studios, she is taping tomorrow. Oh, and I saw her project for the Quilting Arts Holiday issue it is gorgeous!!!!! We had a lot of fun together, it was so nice having friends there for mutual support. Being on a show like this was a first for the three of us. I may have screwed up a few times stumbling on words but I never felt like throwing up or fainting! Pokey made it relaxed and fun and helped guide us through our segments. The whole crew and staff were wonderful. It is going to be a great show.
This new Quilting Arts show is replacing America Quilts Creatively with Sue Hausmann. It is not scheduled to air until the end of December but make sure you contact your local PBS and urge them to pick it up, if your area does not have America Quilts in its line up.
