  1. Will this program eventually be available online for those who love quilts but don’t live within the WPT viewing area?

    1. Hi Emily,

      We do not have specific details about a timeline for online viewing yet, but as soon as we do we will let you know! Thanks for your interest in the program!


  2. I’m wondering when/if this program can be viewed on line. I live in Portland Oregon and attended the Quilt Expo a couple of times in Madison.

    1. Hi Judy,

      Thanks so much for your interest and we’re glad you were able to join us at Quilt Expo! While we don’t currently have details about online viewing, we will let you know once we do!


  3. I am an expat cheesehead living in Illinois. I would so appreciate news of this series online. Thanking you in advance,

  4. I tried tuning in to Treasured Quilts of Wisconsin on Nov. 29 , at 7PM but this was not the programming for either channel 10 or 36. I went to my viewer guide and it wasn’t listed there but it is on your web page. So how do I find it? Did the fund drive, drive this program off the air?

    1. Hi Ann,

      If you’re in the Milwaukee Public Television viewing area, you won’t be able to view the program on air until March. From the latest information we have, MPTV will air the program in March. Once we have any further information about online viewing options, etc., we will be sure to post updates.

      Thanks for your interest in the program!
