Monday, April 14th, I'll be presenting a talk called "The Joy of Color" at City Knits in Detroit. The talk starts at 5:30 and will run approximatley 1 1/2 hours. I hope some of you can come. For more information, call 313 872 9665. The announcement isn't on their website quite yet. City Knits is located in the fabulous Fisher Building - complete with incredible murals. I've got to get some photos of the lobby - it is just so stunning - a real jewel hidden amongst the city streets.
The reason for this talk is that I'll be in Detroit all week at the PBS station. I'm filming 13 episodes of Knit and Crochet Today. They will air on many PBS stations over the next two years (they are taping 2 seasons at once). I went out last year and filmed 3 episodes and by the end, I wasn't feeling too anxious or nervous. I'm hoping I'll be relaxed and natural and not look like a "deer in head-lights!"
Knit and Crochet Today will be hosted by the lovely Brett Bara who is editor of the magazine Crochet Today. Brett is such a wonderful editor and craftsperson. I think she's a natural to guide all the guests through their projects. I'm actually looking forward to talking with her. The folks at Detroit PBS are very nice and professional and make someone like me feel comfortable.
It's all a little hard to believe that my knitting has led me to PBS t.v. If I have to be on television, PBS is definitely the place I prefer to be. It's so accessible to every home in the USA. In a couple months, I'll ask you all to hound your PBS station so they will air this show.
Posting here will be a bit slow over the next week - so please be patient with me. I'll try to take some pictures of the set and post them if they let me.
