I'm Just Sayin


It doesn't happen very often, so don't be left out! My hand-dyed scraps have been collected and stuffed into bags and you benefit from my early spring cleaning! 

You can grab a bag, nearly 3 yards by weight, for only $19.95!!! - a huge savings off the per-yard piece! The fabrics are 100% cotton and vary in size, shape, and color and most pieces are strips and rectangles. They make a fun addition to every fabric collection, and who doesn't like a scrappy surprise? These always fly away fast as there are only a limited number of bags, so don't hesitate. Once they are gone they are gone until next time. As always, these are available only on a first come, first served basis while supply lasts. Better hurry!

Let's Get Together in Delaware!

Hey Everybody! I'm heading to the great state of Delaware in April! Join me and special guest, Alex Anderson, at my Super Quilt Seminar in Newark on April 16-18.

I urge all quilters living within the green zone (see map below) to attend. Alex and I will share information for quilters of all types: Traditional to contemporary, beginning to advanced. The seminar requires no supply list and there is no sewing! How can this be productive? How does a quilter learn in a seminar environment? I guarantee this style of teaching will keep you riveted to the lessons and inspired when you leave! There are only a couple of weeks left to register at the Early Bird price so don't miss out! I look forward to meeting you there!


If you hear about an upcoming seminar coming anywhere remotely close to your area, sign up immediately. There were twenty-five quilters who came all the way from New Brunswick, Canada to Cape Cod to attend. Everyone who attended loved every moment. 

— Jesmith 

Your seminar was well planned, well executed and each segment quite interesting. I went with 4 additional quilters. All of us felt that it was a great experience! Mind you that most of the fabrics, threads, techniques are way outside of the box for me. Yes...I'm the one that shops the reproductions and normally prefers the traditional style of quilting. I think if you can excite me about all the different things you presented...then you're hitting it out of the park. I so enjoyed listening and learning. Thank you for such a fantastic experience. 

— Anne


Newark, DE

 Newark is affectionately know as the little hamlet between the creeks. It has become a bustling small city, yet Newark has retained its college town charm and industrial and commercial diversity.

Join me in Ireland in 2015!

Celtic Treasures of the Emerald Isle

I have a special fondness for Ireland and am looking forward to sharing my love of all things Irish with quilters and their spouses/friends from around the globe on this 12-day journey, June 3-14, 2015. The tour is a sight-seeing tour with a focus on creativity and learning to see your world with an artist's eye. Ireland seems to be on everyone's bucket list so this is your chance to make your dream come true. 

While this tour with me is certainly targeted to quilters, it's not a quilting tour, so non-quilters will enjoy all of the activities. This tour does include a two-day master-class, but other activities will be available for the non-quilting attendees.

One particular highlight will be sharing my passion for the Titanic. The world's largest permanent exhibition for the Titanic is in Belfast, Northern Ireland (where the Titanic was built). I am a Titanic buff, so expect to learn things you never knew about the historic tragedy.

From Belfast to Donegal and Galway, you will experience Ireland in a unique and special way. Visit SewManyPlaces to register today! If you've ever wanted a magical tour to Ireland - this is your chance! Payment plans available.

San Antonio Seminar 4 days left to register!

Ricky will be presenting his 2.5 day seminar in San Antonio, Texas with special guest, Alex Anderson January 8-10, 2015. There are only four days left to register!!! We urge all quilters living within the green zone (see map below) to attend. Ricky shares information for quilters of all types: Traditional to contemporary, beginning to advanced. The seminar requires no supply list and there is no sewing! How can this be productive? How does a quilter learn in a seminar environment? Ricky just has the knack for teaching that will keep you riveted to the lessons and inspired when you leave!


San Antonio looks nothing like the stereotypical image of Texas – despite being pivotal in the state's history. It encapsulates the complex social and ethnic mixes of all Texas. It is most famous for the legendary Battle of the Alamo in 1836, when General Santa Anna wiped out a band of Texas volunteers seeking independence from Mexico.
