Quilting Arts TV Taping - Part II

Here are a few more photos from the Quilting Arts TV taping. The first three were taken of the monitor in the green room. During taping you can (usually) watch each segment while it's being taped on a TV there.

Pokey and Vivika. Pokey is a real pro and is great at making the guests feel at ease.

Vivika and Judith were both great on camera. They looked like they did this every day.

Judith's segments were just the beginning of her day, as she went on to tape a DVD that afternoon. She's been teaching quilting for many years, and her expertise was clearly evident on camera.

There are plenty of folks working behind the scenes to make it all happen. I didn't get good pictures of most of them (like Helen, Lindsey, and the production staff), but I did get one of Jeanne Cook-Delpit. Jeanne is the Director of National Events for Bernina USA. She very efficiently makes sure that everyone has everything they need with respect to the sewing machines. She is also an extremely upbeat and encouraging person! Many thanks to Jeanne for taking the time to show me how to use some special features on a machine after my segments were through.

Carol Taylor, me, and Judith Trager (Vivika was taking the picture)

As a bonus I got to go out to dinner with Vivika, Judith, and Carol Taylor. Carol was in town to teach, and it was delightful to meet her. A wonderful ending to a wonderful day!

Many thanks to everyone at Quilting Arts, KS Inc. Productions, and Beachwood Studios!
