TV, Artisans and Entrepreneurs

Not going to think about it too much, or panic will set in --
I'm gonna be on TV! Just a local channel. I'm hoping to be able to get a clip to post online later, since most visitors to my blog won't have access to the program. I'll be taping on Sunday, October 5, and the program will air Tuesday, October 7 on "Senior Forum" in Milwaukee, Wisconsin - broadcast channel 55, cable 15.



In other news - I have been accepted into the Artisan and Entrepreneur Market at Discovery World. This is a juried art fair, held on Dec. 6. Here is a news clip about last year's market.



All this excitement - and "Tourmaline", too! A fresh batch is on its way to my etsy shop.

Ooh! How exciting! To think that I met someone online, then at a Harvest Festival, who went on to be on t.v. after being published in a magazine! I almost feel like a celebrity! ; )

I hope you have a lot of fun! What a fabulous experience!

Marilee I am very happy for you. It looks like your decision to devout your time to thread and tatting full time is really paying off. You deserve the good things that are coming your way, enjoy them. I am looking forward to the Tourmaline thread.

You go Girl! That is wonderful news. You are going to be great. I hope you'll get to show something from the show here.

Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! Well, the show has been taped now - whew! Hope I didn't make a fool of myself. The program focuses more on the fact that I started an online business "later in life", than on tatting, but I did try to get some tatting in. The program airs Tuesday at 10 a.m. on WPXE-TV Channel 55, Milwaukee, (cable 15) and also is shown on WTPX-TV in Wausau, Wisconsin.
