Hey everyone. Lots of you know that my day job is in casting reality shows… The show I’m always the most proud of is Project Runway and season 9 starts airing tonight at 9pm on Lifetime, but tune in earlier at 8pm for a casting special! I hope that those of you who can will be watching!

    I love the fact that I get a heads up from your blog about Project Runway starting. I think it’s an amazing program.

    This is my absolute favorite reality show! I have it in my DVR recording queue and plan my whole evening around it. I will think of you when I watch it. Is it alright if I ask you your opinions on certain people as the series gets going or are you not allowed to comment? Did you cast Mondo? He was one of my favorites πŸ™‚

    Hey Molly! You can ask me all you want but I probably don’t know the answers! Ha. I cast the show and then hand the cast off to production and never hear a peep while they are shooting. It’s so much fun to watch for me too. I was a fan before I ever worked on the show! And yup, I did cast Mondo last year. He’s the best!

    Ohh… so excited! We don’t have cable but I am hoping they will stream it again this year, I love seeing the casting related footage they’ve shared in the past. I guess I won’t be sewing tonight. πŸ™‚

    Huge fan here too. What a cool job to go along with your cool quilting life! Thanks for the reminder, but my Tivo has been set for a while! I didn’t know about the pre-show until a couple of days ago though, would have been disappointed to miss it.

    Oh, and I’m loving my copy of your fab book@!!

    Can you see it on the web anywhere — live or after the fact? These are the things that those of out without TV miss out on!!

      Hey Amy! I know that Lifetime has been streaming the show on their site a day or two after it airs. I’d assume they are doing the same this season!!

    Hmm, that seems like a *lot* of contestants (couldn’t make up your mind? lol!)…I’m guessing there will be a mass exodus on the first episode. Excited to catch it a few days late. πŸ˜€ (one of those no-cable people as well…)

    Hi Alissa!

    I’m new to the quilting and blogging world, but seeing this post made me feel welcome and comfortable because I am definitely not new to project runway. This show inspired me to learn how to sew, which turned into a desire to learn how to quilt. I was (and still am) amazed of the quality of work the contestants are able to produce in a limited amount of time.

    My mom and I religiously watch the show, and this season will be no different. The season looks like it will be amazing πŸ™‚ I know the first episode was. Great job!
