TV Crafts : We're Back!

Posted by

Yesterday marked the return of the TV Art Department from the summer hiatus, and while some time in the morning was spent with everyone catching up and getting settled, we all quickly fell back into work mode.

I returned to two new sewing machines waiting for me at my desk. New machines are always fun and these look to be very user friendly and will get unpacked this week.


I also started going through all the pieces of paper and cards I had collected from the various craft shows I attended this summer. Lots of inspiration and maybe even a guest or two may come out of the pile.


Meanwhile the Set Stylist got to work unwrapping the set, which almost looks like they are unwrapping a giant gift.

Today the whole TV Art Department is taking a trip to meet with Martha at her house in Bedford. These trips are always a treat since it’s a chance to talk with Martha at her home. Bedford is always inspiring in photographs and a very special to experience in person. Oh, and we get to wish her Happy Birthday a day late.

We are excited to be back and looking forward to our 5th season!

  • I would love a new sewing machine, my Pfaff was bought in 1981, love it and it's getting old. Finding funds is my problem.

  • I am 54 years old and I learned how to sew at 53. I am a full blown crafter. Put me into my sewing studio and the magic happens...I create something new everyday
