Upcoming TV appearances + DVDs

by Shannon on August 7, 2008

I just got my DVD of Knitting Daily TV, which has started airing on PBS stations everywhere. In case you’re wondering, I’m on Episode 112: Fabulous Felting, from which the photo at left was taken. Quicky segment, demonstrating how to use the needlefelting tool, but it was fun to do. Hi Kim! And I didn’t even have to fly to California this time — the episodes were taped practically in my own backyard.

(Hey Clevelanders — the show is airing on PBS 45/49 WEAO at 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays according to their schedule, which means my episode is probably airing 25 October, but check your local listings as every channel is different)

Update: Despite what the Plain Dealer said in the Style section yesterday (thanks to my future MIL for pointing this one out), I am not going to be on the first episode airing this weekend.

I also taped an interview for Knit and Crochet Today this past January (i.e. even before the Knitting Daily TV stuff was taped), so I’m wondering when that will air — also on PBS!

So while we’re on the topic of televised craftiness, it’s time to announce another new project in the works (are you starting to sense a theme this week?) — the DVDs I’ve been working on forever but have finally found Just The Right Person to direct. It’s funny, I had the editing squared away ages ago, but it’s tricky to find someone with the right sensibility to actually record the stuff the way you want it done. It’s exciting! The scariest part, in my time-strapped opinion, is getting the swatching and stuff done…sad but true.

Regrettably, it is not airing on all the PBS stations…… :(

this letter was sent to one of our knitting group members from our local PBS station here in the DC area!

Dear Ms. XXXXXXXX,,

Thank you for watching WETA TV 26 and for taking the time to contact us.

While we do not currently have “Knitting Daily TV” scheduled to air on WETA that does not mean we will not show it in the future. Since it will begin airing on PBS in late July, our program director will most likely gauge the response of viewers across the country to see how the show is received. Hopefully, it will gain a strong following and we will begin to air it.

I will certainly pass your comments on, and I thank you for letting us know how you feel. Without input from our viewers it would all be for naught.

Again, thank you for watching WETA.

Sincerely,

Nina Greenblatt

No Knitting Daily TV in Vermont either…wonder if I can threaten to take back my contribution! No, really, I suppose I’ll have to get the DVD, or move.

Go Shannon, you’re everywhere these days grrrl! Teaching the local ladies felting fun on your behalf and boy are we having some fun.
