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 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!

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.
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.
April 16-18, 2015 at The University of Delaware, John M. Clayton Hall

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.
