Quilting Gains National News Attention

One of the local quilt shops in my area, The Quilt Haus, sent this information to their e mail list. I thought I would share to help get the word out.

 The CBS News Sunday Morning program with Charles Osgood will be featuring a segment on quilting. It is scheduled to air this Sunday, March 16, 2008. Be sure to check your local listings for exact times. As it is a news show, there is always the possibility of big news bumping it. However, as of today, March 12, the producers have said, “It is on the schedule for this week!”

CBS News Sunday Morning features beautifully produced, personal human interest profiles. A portion of the program will feature the International Quilt Festival in Houston and a portion of the story will focus on Ricky Tims, his quilting and his music. All quilters and quilt industry professionals are urged to immediately notify friends, family, and quilters they know. Forward this message and use any other means possible to spread the word.

This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for quilters. It will put quilting on the national stage (U.S) for the first time in years.

We also understand that the CBS news website will feature the profile on their website after the show airs so international people will have the opportunity to see it too.

Here is the link for CBS News Sunday Morning –

I haven’t looked up my area listing yet, but I also doubt that I’ll be awake that early. Too bad I don’t have a DVR! Well, I’ll hope to catch it when it’s available on their website.

Happy Stitches,


P.S. Please feel free to post this on your blogs as well and get the word out!
