Ricky Tims Seminar

Posted by maz574 on Thursday, September 16th, 2010

 

I can't believe how beautiful it is out today!  The weather is starting to get a bit cooler which helps motivate me to start quilting up some of the Christmas gifts I'm hoping to give out this Christmas. 

I know I named this post Ricky Tims Seminar so I'll get to it.  A couple of weeks ago, right when Hurricane Earl was just off the coast of Cape Cod, Ricky Tims had a seminar in Hyannis Ma on the Cape and I was lucky enough to go.  I almost didn't go because of the hurricane but I am so glad that I did.  At first I thought 3 days at a quilt seminar without doing any sewing?  Am I going to be bored? Well the answer was NO!!!!  Ricky Tims is a great speaker and kept everyone very interested the whole time.  He gave out a very detailed syllabus with all the techniques in it that he was talking about and at the end we all couldn't wait to try them out.  I even got to go up on stage with him and have some fun when he was demonstrating how ripping fabric is quicker than using a rotary cutter.  I think it really is quicker, but it will take some getting used to.  I did take a picture of Ricky with Alex Anderson and Libby Lehman who were also there and spoke at the seminar. And I also  have one of me with Ricky.
If you ever have a chance to go to one of these seminars I highly recommend it!!
