Techno Quilting


I remember how I felt when I discovered the Quilter's News Network web site and realized I could watch a quilting show 24 hours a day 365 days a year. What a concept! You can watch Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting, Kaye Wood, Linda Franz and so many more great videos on QNN.


No more setting my alarm to catch an early morning television show. No more making sure the VCR was programmed and set to the correct channel for recording.

Quilting has come a long way from the days when Lap Quilting With Georgia Bonesteel was the one and only quilt show on public television. Everything Georgia touched was 'golden' and we'd travel to the ends of the earth to find her books and the things she used on her program. I should know, it's was my family's Raised Edge Quilter's Thimble she featured on her shows, in her publications and while teaching. I helped make and sell the hundreds of thousands of thimbles that have been manufactured over the last 20 years. Most of you wouldn't know my family has a very long history in the quilting industry. It dates back to 1924 and our parent company Needleart Guild, is second only to Stearns & Foster as being the oldest quilting related business still in existence. Enough about me, back to 'Techno Quilting'.

Since QNN went online there seems to be a race taking place to see who will be next to have quilting videos and shows available on the web.


The Quilt Show with Ricky Tims and Alex Andersen will begin airing their shows on April 2nd. I believe it will set the standard for future web casts. Both Ricky and Alex are class acts and offer only the very best.

I don't want you to become couch potatoes and watch quilt shows all day. Make sure you set aside time to do some actual quilting!
