It's a New Day

Have you been wondering what Alex Anderson is up to now that Simply Quilts is off the air? Well, aside from posting wonderful podcasts on her website, she is now the co-host of an on-line only quilt program called "The Quilt Show". She co-hosts the show with Ricky Tims who is a quilt designer and teacher. The show itself is viewed on your computer. You need to pay a membership fee to view the shows, but the very first show is up on the website for all to view for free (you get to see if you like it before you join). The membership is $24.95 for the year, and they have all kinds of perks for members. I've watched two shows now, and I think it's great. It's like an honest-to-goodness television magazine show with a live audience. They interview guests and have demonstrations, etc. The length of the shows vary -- the first episode is 52 minutes long and the second is 47 minutes. You can pause, reverse and fast forward as you choose. Personally, I like it, and I think it would be worth checking out!
