Anyone out there with old but good memories?

This is driving me nuts. Way back in the mid-70's there was a sewing show on PBS, this lady sewed clothes mostly. She was very soft-spoken, a very soothing voice. In fact, I would plant my one-year-old son in front of the TV in his little chair to watch it and within 2 minutes he would be sound asleep for his a.m. nap!!! And me along with him! LOL!!! I can't remember her name or the name of the show to save me, and it wasn't Nancy Zieman. Does anyone out there know what I'm talking about?? I wanted to know to see if she is still out there doing videos or anything. Just to listen and wind down in times of stress.

Sorry, it wasn't Shirley Adams - I remember her too, now that you mention her. But this other lady was way before her even. Oh well, but thanks for trying.

It wasn't either one of these. Oh, well, I guess I'm older than all of you.

By the mid 70's, my youngest was 10 and I was so involved in 3 different schools, baking bread, canning, cleaning the house, church responsibilities, Blue Birds, etc there was no time for TV.....let alone much of anything else. (I deserve my retirement!)

Rita, I wonder if it was a local PBS show. When I was a kid we watched Romper Room on PBS and I've learned that while Romper Room was a national show, the hosts were local.

I tried Googling and came up with the same ladies who have been mentioned. That's what made me thing it might have been a local host.

In Canada, we had a woman named Madame DeBello, who did a sewing show on garment construction. I doubt that is the one you are looking for unless PBS picked up the show or you were able to pick up a Cdn. station.

Funny. Don't know from way back when. But, the Fons and Porter show often puts me to sleep. I record it because I often miss how it all turned out.

I too was thinking of Sewing with Nancy, my mom used to plant me in front of her, Betty Fezier WOW, wish my memory was still that good lol.

YES, I really DO remember stuff from way back then, my first word was Spartanburg, WHY? Because mama watched channel 7 and when the announcer came on I liked how he said WSOC Spartanburg and I remember thinking I can say that and I did lol...mama was so mad because THAT was my first word, not mama or daddy and albeit I am sure it wasn't all that clear it was understandable enough for it to be understood lol.

SORRY for the ramblings, I saw memory lane and ran down it hehe....

Betty Feezor was local to Charlotte NC TV, so living in Salisbury we were able to watch her. She made a recipe I sent in to her on one show! I was thrilled! Ha! I think she included all homemaking arts on her shows, but I remember the cooking segments more.

FlamingO in AR

Is the PBS station in that area still in business? If so, you could call them and I'm sure they would have a record of the shows they presented to their viewers. Good luck!
