    Ricki timms is coming to Rochester Michigan the first weekend in May. PM me if you would like more info. Also with him will be Alex Anderson and Libbey Lehman. I'm not sure where you are at in Illinois but the event is 2 1/2 days. Our guild I belong to is putting a group together and you get a cheaper price that way. Let me know.

    You're not far from Paducah, so I agree with everyone else. Been there, and the classes are great. If you can take Sally Collins' workshop on Precision Machine Piecing, don't pass it up! It is, hands down, the most useful class I have ever taken. Get her book on the subject, too.

    Hi seamstome - was just browsing through the Main section and I came across you "Help me"I noticed your picture under Super Member. It is just lovely. Could you tell me what the name of the pattern is and if it is finished in a circle. I'm looking for a pattern for a round table and thought that might work. Thanks. Marge

    Follow up. I selected the Sharon Schamber workshop at the Quilt Museum in July. It was nothing like I thought it would be but it was very good. I thought it would be more hands on but it was more lecture and theory and so many practical hints. I really enjoyed it and I am still thinking about concepts that she talked about weeks later. Sharon is an unbelievable wealth of knowledge. Everything from how needles work and fabric grain to the dynamics of color and quilting in the visual aspect of the quilt. Plus the women in the room were very very talented. I could have just chatted with them the whole time and learned a lot. There were about 20 of us.

    If you ever have a chance to take a workshop at the Museum, do it. They were very accommodating and the class room is wonderful. Plus it really was not that expensive. There was 20 hours of class time and it was 375 plus they gave you a goodie bag, munchies and you could spend as much time in the museum as you wanted while you were there.

    I think I will opt for the same concept for Christmas/birthday this year.
