Exciting Happenings in La Veta

Woohoo! I'm very excited to share with you some wonderful events happening in La Veta this coming June! You'll want to mark your calendars and plan a visit to our unique little mountain town to see a local production of "The Quilters" and a special exhibition of quilts made by world renown quilters such as David Taylor, Alex Anderson, Libby Lehman, myself and more! This exhibition is from the private collection of mine and Justin's. For tickets to "The Quilters", please contact The La Veta Theater by clicking here. There's even a special quilt, used in the play and being raffled, made by members of the Colorado Quilting Council! Stay tuned to my newsletter for more information - sign up here!

Spring Retreat

Ricky’s La Veta Quilt Retreat ended this past weekend. A lot of really great quilts were started and three quilt tops were completely finished! In attendance at this retreat were four Brits and one German as well as the Ponnie Brinkmann Scholarship winner.

Retreats happen at various times throughout the year. The best way to get on the notification list is to be sure you have your email on the Pre-notificatlon list for Retreats. Sign up here!

Canada! Having a great time!

I'm on a whirlwind, coast-to-cast tour of Canada! So far I've been to Kelowna, B.C. and Edmontaon, AB. Today I am heading to Ontario!

Thanks Edmonton for the great Alberta welcome - and thanks for the group from Saskatchewan who came to the event here transported in limo luxury. Check this out!!!!

Look What's Here!

You may remember that I was the winner of the BERNINA Facebook Faceplate Face-off last year. Well, the machines featuring my design are now available at your local BERNINA dealer. If you are in the market for a great mid-level machine, or for perhaps as your travel machine to take to classes, consider getting this limited edition B-350.

Here I am, pictured,seeing the specialty boxes and machine for the first time during my recent BERNINA shop tour.

It's my birthday gift to you!

It's my birthday and I want to celebrate with all of you!

Regularly priced at $8.50 per yard, all Ricky's Red Rooster Rhapsodie Coloree 1, 2, and 3 Collections fabrics are on sale through the end of March at $6.00 per yard. Full yard increments only - while supplies last. Once it's gone, the celebration is over! These fabrics are available in multi-yard lengths as well as one-yard pieces and make great quilt backs or borders! Orders will be shipped as quickly as possible, however, some delays may occur depending on how much snow we get, how many presents Ricky has to open, how many candles there are on the cake and how busy our warehouse is!
