TV interview slated for April 21st - loving our lace

It's done - well almost done - on April 21st is the taping of the tv program Common Sense Connecticut. I will be interviewed for 30 minutes on Lace!  While it is a local tv station, once it is uploaded everyone will be able to tune in via the internet.

Does anyone have any additional questions I can give the interviewer ??  He doesn't think we could talk about lace for 30 minutes.....  I told him I could talk about it for 30 days!

Thanks in advance !  I'll post the link as soon…
