Just returned from traveling up north to record another segment for the PBS TV show "It's Sew Easy". It is for the upcoming 400 Series, however...
When I arrived on set, the producers told me that Episode 209, will be streaming online for free starting tomorrow for 1 week.
It’s Sew Easy is now broadcasting weekly on itsseweasytv.com. Each week a new episode will be broadcasted but not archived. So don't miss it.
Episode 209 of It’s Sew Easy will begin airing on Friday, August 24 at noon, EST. First is George Siciliano with a truly different foundation piecing technique that he’s perfected in miniature. Then, Tricia Waddell returns for a quick lesson on seam binding for quilts and garments. Last, Cookie Gaynor introduces us to piecework with an easy crazy quilt project featuring embroidery for a personal touch.

ItsSewEasyTV.com website has free download directions to accompany each segment. My segment mentions a template but it did not get uploaded with the directions. It is available on my website under events. Not sure how I missed that but covered here it is :) Thank you to those watchers in Texas and Florida who asked!
The 400 series segment that I just completed is on thread painting and won't air until 2013. It's a technique demonstration on how to turn a sewing machine needle into a paint brush and the threads become the color palette. Using the same thread painting technique presented in the upcoming 400 segment, translates easily over to embroidery software. (Hmmm, I wonder why?)
I hope your summer has been filled with memorable occasions, crafts and wonderful sewing projects. Looking forward to chatting it up with you on our CookiesCreations Website Fan Page, as I have returned to my own sewing studio in Atlanta.
Thanking all my friends for the amazing support in "sew" many ways! Cookie
