Create Marathons


Settle in each weekend to watch your favorite shows in one binge-worthy format. Each Saturday and Sunday, Create airs a programming marathon centered around a theme — a holiday, a country, a particular food, even a single show. All the excitement of a marathon without leaving your couch!

Feb. 9 & 10

Chinese New Year

Create ushers in the Year of the Pig with a celebration of Chinese food and culture. Chef Ming Tsai and his parents prepare dishes inspired by a recent trip to China; Cecilia Chiang recreates the crispy Szechuan duck recipe from her famed restaurant; and Globe Trekker's Peter Gordon discover the roots of Cantonese cuisine. Joseph Rosendo and Richard Bangs discover the rich traditions of Hong Kong, while Bare Feet’s Mickela Mallozzi dances her way through Manhattan’s Chinatown.

Feb. 16 & 17

Quilt History

Join Create this weekend as we explore the history, art and culture of American quilts — charting its rise from a humble domestic object to a museum-quality artwork. The marathon kicks off with the seven-part Why Quilts Matter documentary series, and concludes with quilt-themed episodes from Sewing With Nancy and Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting.

Feb. 23 & 24
