Tearing Through Salt Lake City, the Ricky Tims Super Quilt Seminar


·         Quilt Magazine Designer Spotlight

President Elect Kathy Porter as Ricky's Special Assistant
Volunteers:  Early to Rise, Late to Bed.  From dawn to well… past dusk, volunteers helped their well-oiled operation by both Cyndy and Justin.  Unloading and loading the trailer, setting up and taking down the store and quilt show, had daily job assignments and shifts including designated "white gloves" for the quilt show, ushers for seminar entry and awarding of prizes, store shop-keeps, registration, and helpers.  Believe me we earned our keep And Our 60% Off, Whoo Hoo!!!  FabricBooksDVDsPatternsMusic

Seminar:  You might have previously read these and thought, yeah that's just "marketing"... well I said it as did many others in attendance.

"Never in my twenty years of quilting have I had such a mind-opening experience as the Ricky Tims Quilt Seminar."  

"This is the best seminar I've EVER taken!" 

"This was the best class I've had in years and well worth it!" 
- From SLC

"Ricky and Alex explain things like no one else does and they definitely were not boring speakers!" - From SLC
