An offer I couldn’t refuse!



Amie from NexStitch (check out her super cool crochet patterns and her blog ) emailed me an offer I couldn’t refuse.

There was a producer of a TV showing pursuing Amie to be on a new craft show on the DIY channel called Uncommon Threads

Then the producer asked if she knew any crochet designers who could be on the show(s) also, well bless Amie’s dear heart, she emailed me the offer I couldn’t refuse and we ran with it!! I can’t give out any details on what we’ve designed, but it’s all so totally cool, I don't think its ever been done before, we are breaking new ground and it's HOT!! I think we are really close to getting the final OK, they loved all the ideas we’ve put out. Sounds as if the filming is for 3 shows and will be in LA with a production company name Screen Door Entertainment sometime in August or September, and air time to TBD.

This sounds like a totally cool new show on the DIY channel, by the same folks that produce the awesome knitting show, Knitty Gritty with the super sweet Vickie Howell.

So my dear friends, I'm dreaming of LA sometime late this summer, hoping to demonstrate an origianl crochet design (or two) on TV. I can't believe how cool this is...life is so totally good.

Pam,

Yeah, our stuff ROCKS. "Fer sure" as we'd say in Jersey. "Fer sure." I'm excited to jump into this all. I can't wait to see your stuff! Hey, did they tell you about making a home movie/video? Esh, I need to get a hair cut BADLY. LOL. At least they won't show it on the air! (i hope)

Hi, I think Uncommon Threads is sometimes on HGTV but not very often. I even saw so once.
