I loved every moment -- even the very nervous first taping where I had to set my hands on the table top so you couldn't see them shaking.
This is actually a shot of Pokey and I on the streaming tv set in the green room.
Here I am working through details with Helen Gregory -- who was such an amazing help and support.
Judy Perez and Jane Davila and I had dinner at a Lebanese place where we enjoyed the food and the company.
Here's me and Judy... can you tell we had our make-up done?!
The studio was awesome! The staff were such experts who really helped me present all my ideas and techniques in the best possible manner.
Another segment with Pokey. She does such a great job making the guests feel comfortable and showing sincere enthusiasm for art quilting.
Jeanne Delpit is the Bernina rep who was simply indispensible! She walked me through the machines on set. Plus, she filled all my bobbins and prepared all the right thread and feet for each segment. She even filled an extra bobbin so I could use my spool of thread as a prop.
Rayna Gilman was preparing for taping too! We had a great sushi dinner and lots of good conversation -- including French with the waiter. Well, Rayna spoke French. I just nodded and smiled.
Here's just a peek at a detail of one of the project I developed for the taping.
And here's another.
Of course, I'll let you know when everything is ready for viewing. (Plus, you can sign up for my e-newsletter for all the details and more. Look at the top right of this blog to sign up.) In the mean time, I am still processing all the memories of the experience and so thankful for the opportunity to share my artwork and ideas.
