Web Guru Bob has assigned numbers to each quilt on the site. Check the Quilt Gallery and see for yourself. Now, you can look for quilts by number. If you wnat someone to see your quilt - give them the number. This is just another step in the journey of building the world's largest interactive quilting video magazine. Enjoy!


Here we go with the last set of photos.





Sew...........here we go with vid blog number two! I am going to learn vid blogging while you see how my work space evolved - It wasn't always as cool as it is today - in addition you will learn, it's not safe to mess with Mama!


Isn't this a spendid office space?


Really Simple Syndication (RSS), in quilter’s terms, is simply a pattern used to stitch together information in standard blocks within web browsers. Its purpose is to give you a quick way to look at news articles with just a headline and brief description. Because of its popularity on the web, we are introducing RSS feeds for both our Daily Blog and our Rhapsody Blog (with more to come).

A picture is worth a thousand words:

Each feed contains a picture, headline, a brief summary of the blog and a link to read the full blog.

To view our RSS feeds, follow the instructions below:

  1. Click on / for our RSS Main page.
  2. Click on the orange rss button 410_695234.gif for the feed you want to view.
  3. Click on “Subscribe” and this will add the feed to your bookmarks under the RSS category.
  4. When you want to view the feed, simply open your browser and click on the appropriate bookmark.
  5. Each browser is different but it should be easy to figure out.

Some of you more experienced RSS’ers already have news readers already loaded onto your computer. Please refer to their documentation to add our feed to your reader.

Note: Some browsers may not show RSS 2.0 compliant feeds properly, so you may experience a page with just code on it. If this happens to you, consider using a different browser. Our feeds are compliant with the RSS 2.0 standards but in time we will try to accommodate issues with all browsers.

If you experience any issues, please use our Contact Us page at contact , and select the “RSS Issues” subject.

We hope you enjoy our feeds and we look forward to expanding them in the future.

Have your favortie tip on the show! Ricky and I both check the forum all the time and during taping (which will start up again next week), we check the tip section of the forum for YOUR ideas. Don't delay, get your idea in the TIP section on the forum (not here) - and maybe your idea will be shared world wide - We LOVED the freezer tip on show 107!



                                       Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens 
                                       Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
                                       Brown paper packages tied up with string
                                       These are a few of my favourite things!

Just like the words from The Sound of Music we all have favorite things we reach for when working on our quilts.  Fancy or simple, they are what we depend upon to get the job done.  I have two “favs” in my sewing box.  A hardware store peephole (to view an entire quilt for color placement) and a wooden skewer (to hold tight areas as I am sewing).   What are your “favorite" things? 



We are very excited about the second half of season one. It seems it was just yesterday that we were taping them - in fact it was! We appreciated all your thoughts regarding the first six episodes and you will find that we have made some changes. For instance, regarding the "how to" content, you wanted more - your wish was our command. In fact, the first show runs over one hour long - that is almost equal to three- half hour shows when you add in commercial time. Surprised We would suggest that you consider watching the show in segments - there is a lot of information to take in (remember to use the remote control to your advantage). But don't worry, our resource guide is available for your reference. Although we call the Quilt Show, an Internet TV program - John, believes we are becoming an Interactive Video Magazine. Where else can you watch and then instantly communicate within our community? Pretty cool when you think about it. Tongue out


Did you know you can skip chapters, fast forward and pause when watching a show? YES!!! It is possible that you can select what you want to see when you want to see it! On the face of the purple remote you will find fast forward, reverse, pause and all the goodies your TV remote control has. In addition, on the lower right hand side of remote is a white tab - press it and the little tab will pop out revealing the chapter headings. The best part about the remote? It can't get lost under your couch pillows!



Be sure to visit chat room "Bonkers over Bernina" tomorrow night at 5:00pm Pacific/8:00pm Eastern when Nina McVeigh from Bernina will give tips on perfecting your quilting projects. Hope to see you there.

I was recently vacationing in Greece and Turkey. While in Athens on a bus tour, I looked up and saw this sign on the side of a building. Luckily, I happened to have my camera ready and caught this shot. It really is a "New Day!"
