I wanted to announce that I am working with Candi Jensen, Executive Producer of the Knit and Crochet Today TV show, to help garner financial support from the fiber working community!
In order to produce the third season of this great show, shown on PBS, we need to gain private donations (and there is work being done to gain corporate underwriting as well). You see Coats and Clark is no longer the sole underwriter of the show, which is both good and bad.
It’s good because now the show is wide open in the yarns, and patterns that can be used, and it will be an even better television show because of it! It’s bad, because now Ms. Jensen has to run around trying to find enough funding to make the next 13-26 episodes.
I really like this show, so I offered to help drum up support from our hand working community! If you crochet or knit, and you haven’t watched the show CHECK IT OUT! Fabulous stuff! http://www.knitandcrochettoday.com
Very soon I will have links to where you can donate a mere $5, $10, or $20. Why should you donate? To keep this tv show as independant as possible! The more independant we can keep it, the better the content will be!! What a novelty in our little world of fiber arts!
So stay tuned!
