I'm Just Sayin

I'm a guest on Canadian Quilt Talk

I'm heading to Canada in April! Find out more as you listen to Canadian Quilt Talk - and it's not just for Canadian quilters!

Canadian Quilt Talk is the podcast from quilting to fiber art and everything in between and right now I am making an international splash with my upcoming spring tour hitting four cities in Canada. You’ll hear all about it on Episode # 69 of Canadian Quilt Talk, which airs Jan. 29th at 4PM Pacific Time.  

Canadian Quilt Talk hosts topics that appeal to a worldwide audience with the latest tips, tricks, trends and quilting experts. It’s all free, all the time so listen in while you walk, while you drive or most importantly, while you quilt! To choose from the first 69 episodes featuring dozens of quilting topics and experts, just go to www.brandylynndesigns.com and click on LISTEN NOW CQT.

Host, Brandy Lynn says, "As always, Ricky was such a great interview. He shares the latest on his passion for teaching, quilting and photography, plus he outlines his new series of online workshops."

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.
