New Sewing Show, "It's Sew Easy," Starts June 30 on PBS
You may have heard about it through the sewing grapevine, but now it's nearly here - the premiere of "It's Sew Easy" is June 30 on PBS stations across the country. It's great news when a national audience is exposed to the fun of sewing!
"It’s Sew Easy" replaces "America Sews with Sue Hausmann," promising to give faithful viewers a new spin on sewing where America Sews left off.
According to a press release from the production company, KS Inc. ( they also produce "Knitting Daily" and "Quilting Arts"), the show is targeted to contemporary sewers looking for projects and techniques to enhance their sewing skills. The featured experts are going to mix tutorials with projects for personalized apparel and home accents.
Threads readers are sure to recognize many of the featured experts, from American Sewing Expo and National Sewing Council founder Janet Pray, to home decor designer Pam Damour, Bobbi Bullard, and "Project Runway" competitors Suede and Valerie Mayen... there are many more in the 13 episodes of Season One.
The show format includes two main projects each week and one shorter technique segment. Show themes include: "Apparel Details and Embellishments," "Kids and Baby," "Dress up Ready Made Home Décor," "Fun Fabrics," "Restyling," "Gifts," and many more.
The producers have created a website that supplements the show. Miss an episode or need more information on a technique? All of the patterns and instructions featured will be available at ItsSewEasyTV.com (note: the website wasn't yet ready at the time of this post).
Check with your local PBS station to see if they'll be airing "It's Sew Easy," and at what time. If they don't plan to, tell them what they'll miss - an audience of sewers!
So, are you looking forward to the new sewing show? Are you thinking you'll learn a lot, or just enjoy the inspiration?
