    CPTV!! Would LOVE to see sewing shows on Public TV, and will certainly let them know :)

  3. Carla Respess says:

    WHRO, Norfolk, VA Definitely requesting Sew It
    All. Sewing is becoming a lost art. I very recently ordered sewing machines for two of my granddaughters 8 and 1o years of age. They are quite excited and this type of show would be perfect for the three of us to view together.

  4. Beth Lambright says:

    No local station is listed for my area. All I have is plain digital TV. No cable, no PBS, no satalite. I wish I could watch sewing shows, etc. but none are offered in my area.

  5. Anne says:

    AETN broadcast from Conway, Arkansas. I have not requested the show, but I plan to!

  6. Carol Boeker says:

    We get Sew It All on Fridays at 1:oopm on Channel 12-WILLtv -(a PBS channel) Urbana, IL
    On Saturdays we get it at 8:00am on Channel 51 WEIU-(a PBS channel) Charleston,IL

  7. Bella says:

    I watch PBS stations Cincinnati and Dayton, Oh. I asked for them to carry Sew It All.

  8. Linda says:

    PBA30 is my station, which airs Sewing With Nancy, but that’s it. I haven’t requested Sew It All yet, but maybe it’s time!

  9. Margaret Coleman says:

    I watch KSPS out of Spokane, WA. I sent them an e-mail asking them to carry “Sew it All”.
    I watch “Sewing With Nancy” on there.

  10. Brenda Adams says:

    I watch WHLA – LaCrosse WI. They only air Sewing With Nancy and Fons & Porter. I wonder if they think Nancy is the only sewing show they need since Nancy originates in WI. Little do they know….
    I also am very disappointed in HGTV and DIY. They used to have quite a few good sewing/crafting shows but their focus seemed to changed. I wish they would go back to what drew me there years ago.

  11. MJ says:

    I watch GPB & PBS in Atlanta, GA – I have written both stations asking about airing Sew It All as soon as I knew of the show, unfortunately neither stations are planning on airing it – so other GA sewers need to write in and request it too!!

  12. Gina.S says:

    In Waverly, Iowa PBS on saturday.

  13. Mary D. says:

    I watch Sew It All on NH PBS station NHExplore.

  14. Jean says:

    In Boston it is WGBH is my local PBS station. No they do not have Sew It All as a program. The other local PBS is from New Hampshire is NHPTV and they also do not air Sew It All. The 3rd local PBS station is Rhode Island PBS and again, they do not air Sew It All. Sad to say that I can’t view the show on any of my local PBS stations.

  15. Ellen says:

    KERA channel 13 Dallas Tx. I have contacted them several months ago about SewIt All and it is shown here on that channel. I really enjoy watching.

  16. Peggy says:

    KLCS is being requested to air not only sew it all but some quilting programing also.

  17. Eileen says:

    KRMA, Denver CO. Waiting to see if it is added to their agenda.
    Your book looks fabulous. I love to sew for my granddaughter – what wonderful inspiration in the book. Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. Sheila Scott says:

    In my area we have, Eleanor Burns RFD-TV, Nancy Zieman UNC-EX, Martha’s Sewing Room UNC-EX. Have emailed the program director and asked for consideration to air, “Sew It All”. Would like to see this show also.

  19. Mary Ann Davis says:

  21. Linda says:

    IPTV thru DesMoines, Iowa. I got to see the first Sew It All last sat. It was great! I work every other week-end, so my family knows to tape my sewing shows. The first one on is Fons and Porter then this is on. Almost the only tv I watch. Would love to win the book as I love to sew for my 3 grandaughters!

  22. DianeL says:

  32. Sandy says:

    We watch WMEB out of Bangor, Maine. I just emailed them and their parent office at WPBN to request this program. They offer very little in the way of sewing shows. In fact, I haven’t ever seen one!

  33. Vicki Schoonover says:

    WILL channel 12 in Urbana, IL , University of Illinois, Looks like a great book. Thank you for the chance to win.

  35. Linda says:

    We watch WPNE out of Green Bay, WI. They carry Sewing with Nancy and Fons and Porter on Saturday mornings. I would love to see another sewing/craft show there. Thanks for the giveaway. I could use this book to create items for my 3 grandaughters.

  36. Vickie says:

    KUED 7 out of Salt Lake City – I caught Sew it All once, the episode where they were making an art piece out of fabric, I kept thinking what is this show? I’ll be keeping my eyes out to catch it again.

  37. Kelli says:

    I watch OPB in Portland, OR – they have a few sewing/quilting shows but not Sew it All. I just emailed them asking if they would start showing it. I would love to watch it!!!!

  38. Diane says:

    I get LPB – Louisiana Public Broadcasting. They show only 2 sewing programs – Sewing with Nancy, and Matha Pullen. That’s it. I’m requesting Sew It All be added.

  39. Cheryl says:

    I watch WCVE in Richmond, VA. I have not asked them to air Sew It All yet, but I will; they are really cutting back on the sewing and craft shows they are showing now!!

  40. Dawn says:

    I’m in Canada – no PBS here! We have the CBC instead!

    That being said, our cable provider does offer KSPS from Seattle, which doesn’t seem to show Sew It All. :(

  41. Dolores Campbell says:

    KUAT in Tucson…thanks for the reminder…sending an email now requesting SEW IT All…..

  42. Jan says:

    I watch UNCTV out of Charlotte, NC . They have some great sewing shows, but mostly re-runs. I have asked and they said they have had requests for it, but still nothing yet! Keeping fingers crossed

  43. Colleen Elston says:

    I watch WNED out of Buffalo and I will be checking if they air it. If not I will email a request. The only craft shows they air are at 5am Saturdays!!

  44. Becki Cullipher says:

    I watch KETS, Conway, AR. I just requested they carry Sew it All!!!

  45. Jenny says:

    KCPL2 Kansas City which all the cable/satellite companies in the area do not carry. so unable to watch it :( If I didn’t have satellite and I had a digital box I could watch it. but would miss my DVR. Keep bugging them to switch it over to their channel1 so everyone could watch – but nothing yet… looks like a great show.

  46. Alyssa says:

    I watch 3 PBS stations – WCET, Cincinnati, OH; ThinkTV16, Dayton, OH; and ThinkTV14, Oxford, OH. I have emailed all of them requesting they air Sew It All.

  47. Grace says:

    Our station is KUHT /Channel 8 in Houston, Texas. Hopefully they will begin broadcasting your show soon!

  48. joan says:

    WHYY Philadelphia… i don’t watch much TV, so i am going to have to see if my local PBS airs it.. if not, i will request it!!

  49. Kim Nugent says:

    I watch KVIE out of Sacramento, CA. I’ve sent them emails but so far no luck on getting them to run it.

  50. Maggie Warren says:

    Louisiana Public Broadcasting, no matter how many gimme shows they host, fail to provide enough sewing/crafting/quilting shows for me. We do have Nancy and Martha Pullen, but that’s all!
