Heads up Wisconsin! Last spring I did some interviews in my studio for a PBS documentary called the Art of Quilting. The program will premiere this weekend on Wisconsin Public Television on Sunday November 26 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday December 9 at 9:00 a.m. I wish I could see it, but I don’t have time to drive up to Wisconsin, and if I did, I don’t have a TV in my car.
However, it will be available for other PBS stations nationally in March 2007. The last program A Century of Quilts that Laurie Gorman produced was shown on 85% of PBS stations, so maybe this new program will come to your neighborhood station in March 07. If not, at some point a DVD with extra footage will be available for purchase from the PBS Home Video website.
The program will also feature lots of other artists and art quilts and hopefully will be wonderful. It’s been produced as a pledge-drive program, so if you see it, call up your PBS station and throw some dollars their way. Those folks work hard and produce some great stuff!
