Quilt Out Loud with Mark Lipinski and Jodie Davis
On October 1st, I headed to Stockton, NJ to tape a segment of Quilt Out Loud with Jodie Davis and Mark Lipinski. They were filming on location at The Courthouse Quilters quilt show. The quilt show is held in The Prallsville Mill in Stockton, NJ - right along the Delaware River. It is a wonderful, picturesque, historic location. There were quilts hanging everywhere. And it was limited to members of their quilt guild. It is a non-juried show and the quality of the quilts was just amazing.
Quilt Fiesta. I brought a bunch of my quilts and Martingale, the publisher, sent a book mock-up. Jodie and Mark couldn't have been nicer. They were warm and welcoming and I felt like I really belonged. He is quite the wacky, entertaining fellow and she is calm and lovely. Other than having to stand in a certain position that felt so unnatural which was supposed to make me look more natural, it was pretty easy. Mark and Jodie are truly professionals and without rehearsing, they guided me though the whole experience. I'm becoming quite the movie star! Hahahahaha.
The show will start airing on QNNtv.com on Thursday, November 7th. It is their Thanksgiving show as you can tell by Mark's colorful sweater. It will also include quilts from the show and a discussion about the benefits of belonging to a quilt guild and if it is for everyone. Tune in. I think it will be a blast.
