In Workshops & events

Ok, that was fun! As much as I had a blast with the first Martha Show Experience, sitting in my living room watching HER demonstrate how to make my project (now with video!) was just my speed. (Especially these days. Most times I feel like a chicken running around with its head cut off and the thought of flitting off to NYC on a moments notice was almost too much.)

The show is “taped live” in front of a studio audience. Some days, like yesterday, the show airs live. I am in the EST zone, same as New York where the show is done. So for me, I was truly watching it real time! The absolute BEST part was at the end of the segment when Martha looked right at me (er, the camera…but I have a really big TV, she was practically standing in my living room!) and said, “Thank you , Betz…”

Oooh! Goosebumps, I tell ya.

I also updated the shop yesterday with more Cupcake Pincushions and…finally more Cup O’ Joe Pincushions…Martha showed this little valentiny cutie reminiscing from last year’s show.

If you’re interested, order soon as Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! Last ship date will be February 8th…

    That’s wonderful! I can feel your happiness from here.
    I love the pincushions.

  • Yummers!

    That was a cute story! I just checked out the How-to on her site and she thanked you again. And I thank you too as I sat all morning finishing up a heart decoration with your book open to embroidery stitches. I’m glad you included those for late bloomers like me.

    Stop at my blog and see what I made with my first felted wool. Love, love, your book!


    That’s so cool! I’m so happy for you! It’s great that she actually thanked you on the show as well.

    The cup o’ joe pincushions look fantastic!

    finally, wached the show (DVR too!) and i didn’t realize that your project was the featured craft for that day. i was so happy for you — well done!

  • Blair

    that would be my preferred way to be on the Martha Show, as talkative as I can be, I’m sure I would be nervous out of my wits standing beside her! I LOVE that scarf, you are so clever!

  • Susan

    I loved the “Thank you, Betz” at the end from Martha. I got shivers, too. Good work and cute scarf!

  • The Jen

    I watched the show and it was great. How exciting for you. And the scarf is really cute.
    Congrats again.

  • alittlemoore

    Thanks for the link! I was bummed I missed the Martha show when it was on. I showed my daughter and she said she wanted one for her birthday, so I guess I better get to felting and comply with her request!

  • Katy

    I’m so glad you are getting a shout out for all your cute and inspiring projects! :)
