Well it’s a sign of the times when even television shows are getting extreme makeovers and “Needle Arts Studio with Shay Pendray” is the next contestant. They will be receiving a new name, new theme and a new set.
The 30 minute episodes which begin in July will be hosted by â€œInterweave Knitsâ€ Editor Eunny Jang, â€œInterweave Crochetâ€ Editor Kim Werker, â€œHandwovenâ€ Managing Editor and former Managing Editor of â€œSpin-Off,â€ Liz Gipson, along with Shay Pendray.
If you are more of a do-er than a watcher then â€œKnittingDailyTV â€ vows to merge how-to television programming with the online community in an exciting new way.
KnittingDailyTV.com is the online companion to the TV show. The site will feature video clips, episode recaps, patterns, interactive discussion, local TV schedules, and more. In addition, â€œKnittingDailyTV â€ will have a presence on MySpace and Facebook and episode previews will be available on YouTube.
The show will regularly invite the Knitting Daily online community to be a part of the program by incorporating segments such as â€œYou Asked It,â€ where hosts answer everyday needle-arts questions of people in the online community or â€œYou Made It,â€ featuring their handmade creationsâ€”bringing a fun twist to the traditional knitting circle and the viral concept of the online knit-along.
â€œKnitting Daily TVâ€ is produced by KS Inc. Productions and will be offered in the same public television time slot as Needle Arts Studio, which has carriage in more than 157 markets and distribution to 55 million U.S households.
