Filming QA TV and a DVD for Interweave.
I spent Wednesday, Feb 16 in a TV studio in Cleveland, Ohio. That's me with Pokey Bolton, friend and host of QA TV (and she does a million other things, like Quilting Arts & Cloth Paper Scissors magazines.) I started at 8am in make up, and filmed 3 segments for Quilting Arts TV, Series 800. (You'll be able to start pre-ordering in July, and shipping starts around the 3rd week of July)
Pokey makes the segments relatively easy, as she asks great questions and is loads of fun.
That's me listening intently to the Producer. I did a needle-felting segment too. You can see Suzanne Morgan's Everthing Kit on the left, that's what I used to create my Venice pieces.
Jeannie Cook-Delpit, Bernina's director of national events was in the green room to teach me to use the Bernina machine and the needle punch attachment for my segments.
This is what the set looks like. That's Lindsey Murray on the right.
My work, spread out for one of the segments.
After filming the 3 TV segments, we started the filming of my hour long DVD around 3pm. Here I am. Ready!
Pokey was a special guest in my DVD. I taught her to draw and paint!
Here at I about 5pm, ready to start filming the final chapter of my DVD. You can tell I'm starting to tire. I don't know the title yet of the DVD, but it is based on my "Sketching & Watercolor: Journal Style" and will also show ways to use your original artwork in mixed media. I'll keep you posted!
