This is such a PRAISE to you and your fantastic way that you touch the heart. Can not say enough about your trip to Nepal and Kathmandu. What a wealth of joy and passion you showed with the people.

Loving and lifting each other. Create Beautiful Crafts. Sing Beauty, Dance beauty. Raise children up with Beauty so the future is beautiful! I AM an artist of modern art, I did do a series of Family of Man for the joy of it. Praise you and Bless you for all of your Love and Passion. You and together with CreateTV, can change mankind's direction. Educate with the purpose pf sharing the love of the art and the love of people. ~ Allison Sears
I would like to thank you for giving us such a wonderful program about folks that are true, talented, sweet and ARE MAKING THINGS with their HANDS. I believe that typing is NOT what God made our hands for! You are a fantastic, thankful, polite and gracious host that is a pleasure to watch. It is SO nice to watch a program that not only teaches you something about others and their cultures but is pleasant and uplifting. VERY little of that these days. Keep the superb shows coming. ~ Mark Mitchell
I am in love with this show and both my sister and myself are craftspeople. I love mixed media and will try any thing different that appeals to me. I am also a quite good seamstress and can create as I go. My sister is a master with acrylic paint, she has done everything from murals to miniatures. She does detail I cannot believe and has given and taken many classes with me. ~ Pat Greene

I watch a lot of travel shows and can honestly say yours are among the very best. High level content. Excellent views of the localities. Makes me want to visit all of them!! 😎😎❤️❤️ ~ Diane Green
Your performance is memorable in each episode. You convey warmth and genuineness on camera. Celebrate your achievement! Hats off to Randy Mace's work seen in the Iceland episode. Thanks to Barry Basiliere and Sally Basiliere for their part in making that happen. I was hoping for a mention of Icelandic knitting. The crafts featured were exceptional, however, and the portrayal of the Icelandic people was your usual endearing, kind, respectful endeavor, Jim. ~ Suzanne Doonan

Just saw your program—first time. Channel 6-2, Sacramento. Wonderful program showing delight in and respect for Guatemalan crafters. Craft done by masters is Art. The world—especially at this time—needs more Art! Thank you. ~ Margaret Anderson
