Several times a year, Ricky Tims offers a five-day, independent study retreats to small groups of ten students at the Tims Art Quilt Retreat Center in La Veta, CO. The retreat is designed to cultivate self-expression through the medium of quilt-making. Introspective morning talks and journaling and creative assignments are the foundations on which students pursue outward creative expression. The independent study format enables Ricky to guide each person toward their own personal goals for the week. Quilters of all experience levels are welcome to attend.
Registrations are taken on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in coming, check the Student List to see if there are openings. Contact
to register. Each time we schedule new retreats we send an email to everyone on the Retreat Notification List.

Ricky Tims is rolling out his new "Gaelic Blessing" quilt which features a variation on the Double Irish Chain pattern with a beautiful Celtic Cross done with minimal applique. This pseudo-traditional, easy-to-make quilt measures 63" x 63." Both the pattern and hand-dyed fabric kit are now available!.
Please take the poll below and help us determine how many patters and kits we should prepare, this does not obligate you in any way.
