I looked out the window as my plane descended into the Minneapolis airport that night last January and I couldn’t help but smile as I flew over the city and saw those brightly lit areas in every neighborhood. Most people wouldn’t even give those areas a second thought. Most people wouldn’t even know what they were. But I knew what they were. I knew what was going on under those lights. I grew up in Minnesota. I knew that under those lights there was lots of laughter, play, exercise, games, friendships building and young love happening. Some of my most favorite childhood memories happened under those lights. I knew those were the lights of the neighborhood ice skating rinks and I immediately knew I was “home”.
But they didn’t fly me there for ice skating.
They flew me there to be on TV!
Yep, The Renegade Seamstress is going to be on TV and I’m beyond excited!
It really is going to happen.
Back in December, Roberta Bonoff, the CEO of Creative Kidstuff, contacted me and asked if I would like to be a guest on their new show, The Happi House. Of course, I didn’t even take a breath before I responded with a resounding YES! They flew me to Minneapolis in January and we filmed three episodes.
The Happi House is an entertaining and informative weekly magazine style television series for women that airs on the CW channel at 9:00 on Sunday mornings. It’s sponsored by Creative Kidstuff.
As a teacher, I love Creative Kidstuff’s mission. They believe that play is joyful, educational, creative and inspiring. Their mission is to help families play together and learn together. The Happi House is a natural extension of that philosophy, and they were definitely lots of fun to work with!
I can’t wait for you to see the shows on April 12, April 26 and May 10.
I’ll remind you again as the air dates get closer. But, in the meantime, even if you don’t have an ice skating rink close by, I hope you can get out there and play!

Awsome news, Beth!
Thanks so much, as you can see, I’m pretty excited to get the refashion word out to even more people. 🙂
Wow! This is so exciting Beth. 🙂
oops! I’m not anonymous… I’m Autumn!
Thanks so much, Autumn!
I’m also from the Minneapolis area and spent a lot of time and $ at Creative Kidstuff when our children were young; love that store! Congratulations on your new partnership with them and I look forward to watching.
Thanks Mary Jo. I’ve heard great things about Creative Kidstuff and I’m thrilled they made me a small part of their mission. 🙂
Wow! Just Wow! So excited for you, and happy to see your success!!
Thanks for being excited with me, Linda!
Congrats! And welcome home 🙂
Thank you, Tami! I was a little nervous when they said they were going to fly me there in January. But it was actually super warm while I was there. Couldn’t believe it was in the 50’s in January.
Fantastic!! You just keep creating & growing….I look forward to watching. Keep us posted.
Good for you!
That’s cool. All the way down here in New Zealand. When I became ill ( not going to die ) but keeps me at home I thought I would start knitting again, and then started looking at the Internet, and well I guess the rest you can all see I’m an addict. You are one of my favourites, I’m signed to that many sites. But I have learnt way to late in life to have a go and I realise that I can do so many things I get side tracked even most of my first attempts are usually pretty good. I will not see your program here but so pleased for you, maybe some children will learn quicker than me what you can be capable of. Cheers galene
Oh, it is so nice to know that you have been enjoying The Renegade Seamstress all the way over in New Zealand, Galene. Thanks for your nice comment, it really brightened my day.
