another great thing about the dvd's is: you don't need a good internet connection...

Somewhere along this thread someone mentioned the Joe Cunningham Episode. And although I am no longer a hand quilter (artheritis) I loved the show. In fact, I loved it so much that I got out my Dad's old carpentry tools and made myself a stick frame for basting. I also made the legs to prop them up. I did it partly because I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. That's not happened just since this weekend. I did it a couple of weeks ago. Like some one else, Pam- I think - suggested, since I am only a member for one I am collecting DVD's of past series. What a wealth of information? This discusion leads me to another question. How do the veterans use the site? What has been the best tools? What about TQS has best helped them improve their skills? I think I'll start a new thread so that those who have not been following this one might put in their 2 cents.

Hi Pam,
I have been wary about buing the DVDs as I live in Surrey UK and wondered if they would be compatable but I see that you live in Berkshire and if they are ok for you then I will order some especially series one with Libby Lehman.
I hope you are enjoying our lovely spring weather
Have a nice weekend
Anne

As someone who has been a TQS member since the beginning, I can watch all of the shows, but still buy the DVDs so that I can watch them again on my tv. For newer members I strongly recommend that you purchase the previous series that you dont have access to. The dvds are reasonably priced for the number of shows in each series. Every single show is great! There is something to learn from all of them. They are of the same great quality with excellent teachers as the shows we are now watching. Whilst you may not be able to afford all the the dvds at once, my DH buys them for me at Christmas and my birthday. TQS rocks!!

I have had a wonderful weekend, I managed to watch 19 shows loved them all, even though a few of the videos were "stop, start", which was most annoying, I don't know why this is as most of them were ok, I joined TQS at series 5 so watched as many 1 to 4 as I could
I thought 101 Joe Cunningham was most entertaining and Jane Sassamans quilts were fabulous. Bonnie McCaffrey 205, Susan Cleveland 109, Elsie Cambell 407, all were wonderful I wish I could have watched them all (I would have had to stay up all night)
Thank you TQS for a great weekend
More please
Anne

I really enjoyed Judith Baker Montano (201) - I think she lives in Paradise! I really enjoyed watching Ricky show us how to make a Rhapsody quilt(803 + 804). I also watched a little of Liuxin Newman (310) and Sue Garman for hand quilting. There is more but I just can't remember. Yes I was definitely square-eyed by the end of yesterday. Well it was mothers day here in Ireland and what better way to spend it? Thanks TQS :D

I have been hand turning a binding to the back of quilt while watching TQS shows! I am not fond of this task, so watching the shows has made it very enjoyable indeed!

I loved re-watching Cindy Neeham's and Sue Garman's shows. Both of these ladies are so inspirational! I just finished Carol Doak's Paper Foundation Piecing show and found that to be excellent as well. I also enjoyed Elsie Campbell.

After dinner, I will watch a few more shows, perhaps Beth Ferrier and Melinda Bula.

Because of Lorchen's comment I watched Melinda Bula again. I had forgotten how much I loved it. When will we ever have time to try all these wonderful techniques. Lois

It's Mother's Day in the UK this weekend. My present is that DH has taken the girls to visit his parents in Wales and I'm at home - ALONE- and sewing to my heart's content! I've got all the shows already but I've been enjoying browsing. Must check out Melinda Bula, thanks for the reminder Lorchen. :)

Just got back from a birthday party at a local restaurant. All the staff were wearing green, the serviettes were green and my icecream dessert was decorated with a chocolate 4-leafed clover. :)

After a hellish week at work I'm off to bed. If I can find the time tomorrow I'll head for the show with Melinda Bula, and the one with Cindy Needham.

What fun, I started yesterday working my way through series 1, all the ones I have not seen and a couple repeats. I have quilting coming out my ears!!! So I've watched six shows so far, wow and as I like to sew while watching TV I have hand pieced a few squares together as well. My creative juices are on overtime - thank yu TQS for opening the shows up

I haven't watched any shows yet because, as Nancy said, we are busy watching March Madness but when it is a game that I am not particularly passionate about, I just put in my headphones and watch a show on my computer. Hope you all have a wonderful quilty day.
