The Quilt Show visits the Craft House

I can't really believe this happened. Two weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of having a visit from The Quilt Show. Shelly Heesacker, the producer of The Quilt Show contacted me several weeks ago about being a guest on their show. To be honest, I was thrilled and totally confused at the same time! Me? Little 'ol me? Why me? She actually asked me if "I would be interested". Are you kidding me????? I think I somehow eeked out my most professional, yes. Which lasted for about a second before I started gushing my thanks and gratitude all over her.

As it turns out they are doing a segment about local places and people in Portland. And somehow the stars aligned and some very sweet people mentioned this here quilter and *POOF*! I'm on The Quilt Show. Booyah!

It was a crazy, wonderful day. Shelly was here with her team for several hours and we filmed a couple different sections including an interview where I answered all sorts of questions and my studio where I got to show off Peacock Lane for Michael Miller Fabrics, my Indygo Junction patterns and some new things I'm working on right now.

We also toured my house and there are a few silly surprises as well. The segment won't air until the middle of NEXT YEAR - I can not believe I have to wait that long to see it!!! I will make sure to let you know when it is available.

The kiddos and the husband even got into the filming and the girls got a little instruction on sound.

I think I was walking around on clouds for about a week after this. I had so much fun and am still amazed that they chose me to be a part of the show. Thank you Shelly and The Quilt Show!
