KSL Meet & Greet ... I can't believe this is my job!



Last Wednesday I was honored to be invited to a KSL TV blogger event. 
I have been a big fan of KSL since, well a long time! I listen to Doug Wright in the Morning, get all my local news from KSL.com, and love to listen to The Nightside Project (Ethan and Alex always keep me entertained whenever I have to drive alone at night)!

Oh and I couldn't possibly forget to mention this FANTASTIC show ...
 I am so excited to have such a great venue for all things creative filmed right here in Utah! Not only does Studio 5 feature creative projects and artists, they have all kinds of great segments that you'll love. From cooking to family life. Home and garden to style, this show's got you covered! 
It airs locally Monday-Friday at 11 on KSL 5, but you can also watch many of the segments online
 at http://studio5.ksl.com. You can also see what's coming up, as well as browse through past projects and features. You can also follow them on Facebook and Pinterest to keep updated on the latest news.

This is sweet Brooke, one of the hosts. She is just as lovely in person as she seems on TV. I have heard so many great things about her, and guess what? They're all true! Thanks Brooke for taking the time to visit with me:) 



We also had the opportunity to meet the evening news team 
(They were wonderful!) 
and even got to read the entertainment news on camera ... 


{My friend Kiersten from The Crafting Chicks and I were co-anchors!}



{TRUST ME ... They make it look so easy!}



{See what I mean?}

Next, we headed over to The Nightside Project to visit with hosts Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry ...



It was so much fun to visit with them and be on the show! 
You can listen to our segment HERE

Thanks Ethan and Alex!



When it was time to leave, we were presented with some AWESOME KSL swag ... 



{My 12 year old STILL won't give me the ball back!}

 I want to say a big THANK YOU to Natalie and the entire team at KSL. We had a wonderful evening and learned so much about the great people who work so hard to keep us informed, both in front of and behind the camera (and mic as the case may be). Thanks!

While I was chatting with Brooke from Studio 5, we talked about the last time Riley Blake was on the show (click HERE to see), and how it has been much too long. So I am wondering ... If Riley Blake WERE to do another segment (or segments) on Studio 5, what would YOU like to see or learn? Please let me know in the comments and I'll pick a winner to receive ...

A fat quarter bundle of Verona

PLUS the Verona panel that I used to make THIS apron 



WOW! Even if you don't live in our market, PLEASE still comment! You can watch the segments online and we'll be sure to share them! Your feedback is so important ... We want to know what YOU want to see. I'll close out the comments on Monday, July 2nd at Midnight (MST) so please get your comments in by then. Thanks so much!


Have a wonderful night~

Paige

  6. How about a demo for a easy to make fun bag or tote. It seems like in the summer you can ever have enough of them for swim stuff, library books, road trips, a back for back to school, etc. I LOVE Riley Blake fabric :)

  10. I would like to see more of the inventive ways that people are using the chevron fabrics. How are they cutting the fabrics and placing in blocks to make something special and different. For example - the little girl's dress that has the chevrons running vertically. Or a ruffled skirt with each layer a different color or size of chevron. Rita of Red Pepper Quilts also used fussy-cut chevrons in a spectacular quilt. I believe there is a lot of potential locked in those zigs-zags (and the Ombre Dots, too!!!!).

Then a behind the scenes brainstorming session would be fun....Riley Blake fabrics are awesome and the sky is truly the limit...Wish I lived in your market area to be able to see the KSL segments...and really wish our local stations would spotlight quilters & those of us who love to sew.
