The Shopping Channel

Hi friends,
 Ask me if I had fun doing The Shopping Channel for AccuQuilt. - Live TV is very different from filming something that can be edited - and it's a good thing that adrenalin keeps you 'on edge' as it was a very long day. My first segment was on at 8:00 a.m. and I had to be in the studio a minimum of an hour before (being a bit nervous I got there at 5:30 a.m.) and my last one was at 7:00 p.m. - which was followed by taking down the set. I got back to my hotel at about 9:30 p.m., packed, requested a 6:00 a.m. wake up call and fell into bed. I shut off the light and to quote a family friend, I was asleep before the light went out. 

Although there seemed to be a long time in between segments, there really wasn't enough time to leave the studio so to while away the time I watched other presentations and met some nice friendly people. I had a dressing room complete with a comfortable couch, my Kindle was filled with good reading material, and the cafeteria offered a nice variety of good food so I just settled in to enjoy the experience. 

Of course working with a product you are in love with makes it easy to present. Anybody who has worked with an AccuQuilt cutter knows that it truly makes our quilting lives easier, faster, and more accurate.

Another adventure starts tomorrow - my 50th High School Reunion. More about that later. 



  1. I love my Go! cutter too, but don't make me be on TV please! :) You make it look easy; I would be a wreck.

  2. You look GREAT Sharon!!! It's great shopping channel. Miss you more than words can tell. :)
