HELP SAVE KNITTY GRITTY!!!
Pardon me if there have already been posts about this and I missed it. You can read all of the details on my blog and on my very favorite yarn site, SWTC.
Okay, here's the deal, the parent company that owns DIY that plays Knitty Gritty, Scripps has for whatever reason started playing Knitting Gritty @ odd hours, as you know, 5am EST!! and, according to the petition Scripps doesn't want to bring it back for another season.
Okay, I was chatting with Jonelle (pres. of SWTC) and we were talking about GETTING THE WORD out and since we all know I have a big mouth I'm here to ask ya'll to please, please....SIGN THE PETITION...you can get all of the info on my blog & SWTC (as posted above) and better yet, post it on your blog! Call them, email them; the contact info for Scripps is right here. Let them know we want our KNITTY GRITTY!
My goodness, Knitty Gritty began around the same time this forum started, about the same time I started knitting and I bet there's not one of us that hasn't learned something from the show and/or the hosts Vickie has on the show and/or Vickie, the knitsters, I could go on and on! I was so looking forward to the new shows, now they may never exist....unless, perhaps....WE ARE HEARD!!!
People take knitters for granted, and that is a mistake because - we are MANY, we are MIGHTY and we have a VOICE and they don't need to take us for GRANTED because we are WONDERFUL KNITTERS AND WE ARE MANY!
So, I'm here to kindly ask that you please at least sign the petition, but if you'd like to do more you can look at my blog or SWTC's blog and see the info in the corners of the sidebars that has a pic and says "Save Knitty Gritty" or something like that. Anyway, we need to make ourselves HEARD!!!! KNITTERS SO ROCK
TIA for reading this, you guys. I just got upset with the thought of no new seasons of Knitty Gritty and I want to see it at a reasonable hour, too!

I signed the petition, you can too!
Thank you Rebecca for posting the petition.
I have been upset that they moved it to 5 AM.
Hopefully there will be enough signitures that they
will keep the show on.

No wonder I didn't see it on Friday at 7 am, but I signed the petition awhile back.

I don't have cable TV.

But thanks to this thread I finally figured out what you all have been talking about.
