Filming The Quilt Show: Roll Tape!

Here we are filming The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. One segment is an interview where we are all seated around a coffee table and chat. As the camera rolls Alex and Ricky ask me questions about my art and books and how I acquired a Minnesota accent.
As the audience sees photos of my family, home, and ancient pictures of my childhood, I assure them that I was an adorable little girl. Lucky them. They get a goodie bag at the end of the day from The Quilt Show sponsors.
Our second segment is a demo on hand carving stamps to print fabrics. Ricky and I get so absorbed in the process we forget the camera is rolling and make funny remarks about Libby Lehman's stamp collection. I forget what I'm doing and slip into a Minnesota accent.

At last the filming is complete, we depart for lunch, and the crew prepares for the afternoon shoot with my friend, Cara Gulati. What a relief to watch someone else have to face the camera!

Thanks to everyone at The Quilt Show! What a great group of people!

Hi Gene,
Yes, I show a few examples of how to stamp with the carved stamps and how I use them on paper and fabric. It's fun!

I, too, am looking forward to seeing the demo about the stamps, but you COULD give us a little lesson here one day. Maybe?

Really looking forward to seeing how you create stamps and listening to that Minnesotian accent :0)

Looks like it was fun doing the segment. What did you answer about your Minnesota accent anyway?
