    Smile Help me pick my Christmas present

    Hubby asked what I would like for Christmas, which is really my anniversary (12/23, Christmas and my birthday 1/19) so I have a fairly large budget for travel and the retreat.

    I have everything I want but I think I would like to go to a quilt retreat with a nationally known instructor. I am willing to stretch my horizons. I was thinking 3 days.

    If you have taken a class from an instructor that you really liked, please share your experience.

    You don't mention if time of year is important, so off the top of my head:

    Empty Spools
    http://www.emptyspoolsseminars.com/

    Quilt Museum Workshops - Paducah
    http://www.quiltmuseum.org/adult-workshops.html

    Quilting by the Lake
    http://www.quiltingbythelake.com/

    Quilt Festival (Houston and other cities)
    http://www.quilts.com/home/index.php
    They also run a few Quilt Camps a year.

    Ricky Tims runs his LaVeta retreats - I've heard rave reviews about that.

    AQS Paducah Show - class list not yet available (or any of their other shows)
    http://aqsshows.com/AQSPaducah/

    That's it for now. Oven timer is dinging.

    I would go to Paducah Quilt Show for the four days. Sign up for classes, enjoy the quilts and meet quilters from all over the world. You'll love Paducah. Book your room now.
    Got fabric?

    Paducah is great and I am going to Cincy with my GF's this spring.

    I was looking for an immersion in one area. Spending a week with Ricky Tims almost one on one would intimidate me! Empty Spools sounds great but I dont have a whole week with travel time and cost. I thought thread play sounded interesting to explore, Ranae Merrill, Schamber, Karen Stone plus there was a class on curves.

    So I have enough money to do both the Karen Stone in March AND the Sharon Schamber in July at the Paducah Museum seminars. Schamber is the one I really want to see since I dont FMQ. I have Merrill's book and might sign up for her online class.
