    Money is always a factor, but if I get the chance to attend any workshop, I usually try and make sure I can get the funds together and supplies and go. Since I have only been quilting for little over a year I need all the help I can get to get the light bulb to go off in my head.

    When money was not an issue I attended the Ricky Tims Super Seminar, also with Alex Anderson and Libby Lehman. Nothing else I have seen compares to that. There is no carrying sewing machines and fuzzing around with fabric selection, No one is lost because they missed the next step while they were left behind, and no wasted time waiting for someone slower to catch up. He teaches you a technique, not a project. Many classes are just a bunch of people, everyone working on the same project, but no particular techniques being taught. In the seminar they have one sewing machine on the stage, with cameras on it. You get instruction with projected images and you see from the hands of the expert how it is done. There are no particular projects done, just tons and tons of techniques that you apply later, at your own pace. No need either to write everything down, because at the start you are given a syllabus that has written everything you will need, except for the jokes. It is extremely educational and entertaining. May sound a little overwhelming at first, but because is all there written for you, the reference is right there for you. Is 3 days, but worth the $$. After the second day you get to enjoy an evening of Ricky's music and great story telling. Again...after that, nothing else can compare. (In my opinion).

    Ditto to Maride.

    Eleanor Burns, Carol Doak, just the simple non-artsy stuff. I want to learn techniques that make it easier, better, less time consuming, and will last a lifetime.

    Ruth McDowell is on my list
    Yes, price is a factor
    When Kaffe Fasset (sp) was in NH the cost was over $100.00 for one day, 2 of sons gave me the class for my b'day 2 years ago, the quilt top still is not finished.

    We are really fortunate here in Oklahoma City. We have some great people in for our Okla. quilt show in Feb. and the fee is not that much. Have had Marti Michelle, Eleanor Burns and several others. Also our Guild has had Pat Speth who wrote Nickel Quilts. Just had Ami Simms. They always have an all day class at a very nominal fee. Like 25 to 30 dollars, then they speak at the meetings that night.
