So we met ETV Roadshow and

Getting ready for the big event...we got there about 5 i think...and i thought they could interview me then BUT NO...not till 7:32....it was LIVE OH NO...Broadcast LIVE across SCarolina....oh no oh no...you would have thought a crowd of people would show up BUT they didnt...of course McCormick County only has 10000 residents in the whole county. so huge crowds are not possible...but come on...only 30 or so showed for this event right in the center of town...tv cameras, stars of etv, interesting happenings so we were early and we were hungry...this tv stuff is HARD work:> Joyce and Kim heading to Fannie Kates...is that the name for dinner...interesting place...THe Barber shop quartet...waiting and waiting and waiting...I never did hear them sing..hmm I never did see what was on tv...except for jeff..we discovered that SCETV conveniently had provided a big flat screen tv for you to watch...when it was almost over...but just in time to hear the train blast thru town...

a few residents did show up-but most of them were involved in the taping...and are waiting on the steps of the Mac(center for the arts). The Mac is an old hotel that has been renovated for ...hmmm well jeff has a studio here and they give art shows...theres also a gift shopand this is what they were watching...WHAT you DONT see on TV....the crew setting up and the famous SCETV host Beryl Dakers and I am not sure what the other lady's name was ....was too nervous when she interviewed me...



are still alive to tell about it...and if you hurry you can see us again on Sunday at 4 pm BUT remember its SCETV as IN SOUTH CAROLINA....

there were cameras and lights everywhere...jeff kept saying SHUT off those HOT lights!! Jeff supervising...the quilts set up...hmm Kim couldnt you do better:> I mean you took a zillion shots of MOI which NOONE Is going to see:>
me saying THANK GOODNESS ITS OVER!!! and Jeff helping take the quilts down...

And NOW its time for Jeff to go on...let me outta here:> THats me in the bottom right corner ...barely:> Breathing a SIGH of relief!
SO finally Its JEFFS turn...and here comes the train...hooting and BLOWING its HORN ...not 20 feet from where hes being interviewed...what luck...

Heres another shot of Jeff...just cause hes so cute and photogenic...lucky there was someone there who was...it wasnt MOI! This nice lady's name is Bobby Kennedy ...shes in charge I think...isnt that what she told us...shes very nice...all the way from Columbia...I KNOW its only what 60-80 miles away???:>

OKAY...goodbye Joyce, Jeff and Sam and McCormick, SC...come on Kim lets go home...bytw i fell asleep on the sofa almost as soon as i sat down...

Oh Maggie, it looks like you had so much fun, wish I could have been there to see the Show. (Unfortunately, we won't get to see it in Houston, waaaah!) I'm sure you were as wonderful as your art quilts.
cheers,
Linda

This looked like so much fun and it really had me going nostalgic for Clemson. Not that I was on tv or anything, but somehow the memories of people and events showed up..
Congratulations, it looked like a big success.

Congratulations! It looks like there is a lot behind the scenes that goes into a show! Your quilts are just beautiful, too.

I am so behind in emails, but I just wanted to say congratulations! It looked like a lot of hard work, but I'm glad you had a good time. I'm always happy when fellow artists get recognized for their work, especially when I know them! McCormick SC looks like a great little town.
