November 3 & 4Last year, we lost public TV pioneer Nancy Zieman. This weekend, Create pays tribute to the "Bob Ross of Sewing" with 12 back-to-back episodes from her long-running series, Sewing With Nancy. The six-hour marathon concludes with the last episode Zieman recorded before her retirement, "I Sew For Fun," which features her two granddaughters.

The diverse menu includes: Taiwanese home cooking, Spanish suppers, Middle Eastern delights, French desserts, Italian-inspired recipes, classic (and contemporary) Mexican meals, everyday Japanese favorites and more!
November 17 & 18Tune in as Create's experts provide a crash course in Thanksgiving 101.

Pati Jinich prepares a chipotle salmon, bacon and avocado sandwich (pictured). Julie Taboulie plates shawarma piled high with lamb.
