The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat
February 18 through February 20, 2021
The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat offers a comprehensive quilt curriculum for all quilters. This customized event will teach, encourage, inspire, and will most certainly keep you entertained. Ricky demystifies seemingly complex concepts, and teaches mastery of unique techniques. The sessions on creativity will show you how to harness the power of the ever-elusive muse of creativity.
The sessions cover improvisational patchwork, no-pins precision curved piecing, design guidelines, color theory, dyeing basics, and machine quilting tips that work for both domestic and long arm. You will learn beautiful outline appliqué and innovative piecing techniques—most of which don’t require a quarter-inch seam! Ricky’s goal is to change how you think when it comes to quilting. He will help you to reevaluate your quilting experience and give you the ability to define who you are as a quilter. The seminar will benefit all quilters—beginners or experienced—traditional or art. In addition to the methods and techniques being taught, there will be plenty of fun projects/patterns for you to consider.
This event will be customized as a one-of-a-kind seminar, but is based on Ricky’s popular Quilt Luminarium that has received rave reviews from thousands of quilters from across the country. The 120-page full-color syllabus alone is worth the registration. These are not-for-sale, and are only available to registered attendees.
Ricky will also be presenting a concert full of story-telling and piano music Saturday evening at 7:00 pm.
In addition, Ricky will be sharing the ten year backstory of the creation of Lizzy Albright and the Attic Window, a book featuring a ten-year-old, red-headed, over-imaginative girl. Through the discovery of a family heirloom quilt, Lizzy is transported to an enchanted land where a powerful curse has befallen the kingdom of Ailear. Lizzy and her companions believe they can reverse the curse, but an evil sorceress has other plans. This magical and thrilling story is described as Harry Potter meets Alice in Wonderland meets the Wizard of Oz.
