EGA on Antiques Roadshow!
I received the following information by email from The Embroiderers' Guild of America:
"The Embroiderers' Guild of America will be featured on Antiques Roadshow later this month!
As part of its visit to Louisville (Kentucky), the Roadshow came to EGA Headquarters and took a look at three of our samplers.
While their visit here was very brief, it does give us some extraordinary national exposure.
Louisville Life, a series produced by the local PBS affiliate, KET will air a longer segment on EGA that will focus on our mission, programs, and collection. This program can be viewed on the KET website after its initial air date. Go to http://www.ket.org/ and scroll down to Louisville Life and follow the links.
Antiques Roadshow from Louisville will air in three segments -
* EGA will be featured in the third program that airs at 8pm EST on May 5, 2008.

Check your local PBS listings for additional air dates for the third Antiques Roadshow segment from Louisville.
