    • I love watching the dvd’s because i can do them whenever i have time or can follow step by step as i try a new project. Often i watch them late at night when the hubby is in bed and the house is quiet. I watch the dvd,s over and over again…..I just love fons and porter!!!

So we are listening, watching and creating at the same time. We can even replay sections that need reinforcement or clarification. The series are awesome.

  159. I would love to win a DVD series. I get to watch your program every other week due to my work schedule. I love to be able to watch it and replay something until I understand it Instead of having to wait until I go to town and visit my friends at the quilt shop and have them explain to me how to do something.
    Thank you for the chance and all the wonderful QNN TV programs.

  165. I am a self taught quilter. I always watched your program on TV until they took it off our channel. I now read all the books on quilting that I can to learn be able to make my quilts. I admit that I have made mistakes, but I try to be a perfect quilter. I would love to have these DVD’s to be able to see what I have done wrong and to learn the right way from Fons and Porter.

  172. It is so much nicer to watch someone teach you how to do it, rather than reading the instructions yourself! Your teachers make it much more fun!

  173. I am a visual person and need to be able to stop, pause, rewind to see any detail I’ve missed. Like this morning, thanks to watching some of the Sew Easy trimming oversize triangles and other recommended and/or suggested clips by F&P, I went on to complete some of my blocks and finished them off perfectly.
    Thanks to everyone at F&P, you guys and gals are great.

  174. When my Fons and Porter quilt magazine arrives I make a cup of tea and allow myself time to just sit and enjoy reading the magazine, dreaming of the projects I will make. When I watch the show on Saturday mornings it’s my weekly desert….so I can just imagine having the videos would the ‘icing on the cake’ treat that would make life soooo sweet!

  180. I never know where to start. I just click on the video and it starts. Perfect quality and clarity. Written instructions always supplied and when we have questions all we have to do is ask and as always it is answered. Lots of variety, great quilters, professionals always giving their time and more of themselves and lastly heaps and heaps of quilts and lots of suggestions on how to get to the finished product. Wonderful site always with humour so much fun love QNNTv. Julie Beard.

  185. Watching someone work on the quilt pieces as they explain how to do it, is so reassuring to a relatively new quilter. Being able to watch again and again, makes the learning easier, because we all think of questions in the wee dark hours of night and video viewing can help us answer those question. Thanks for the chance to win this DVD. I have several of the older series, I really covet this one>

    Deborah DeBerry, 1 year ago Reply

  186. Learn better watching and hands on than just reading. As I am new to quilting this has come in handy and I have learned alot of techniques that older books don’t teach. Inspirational!!!
