I really think you'll have a good time. He's an excellent speaker. Have you seen much of him?
Only on The Quilt Show -- and a while ago when he did Alex Anderson's Simply Quilts. I love his sense of color (his hand dyes are so gorgeous). My fave quilts are his Rhapsody quilts. I watched the how-top video on The Quilt Show and bought the book. One of those is on my to-do list when I think I have acquired the necessary skills. I think he is a talented guy with a cool personality. He and Alex are my two favorite quilting personalities.
