Tuesday Preview - CQT Episode # 69 with Ricky Tims

Happy Tuesday Everyone! 

Have you signed up for my monthly newsletter yet? You'll hear the latest on the podcast, great quilting products, book reviews, postcard exchanges, the Aloha Quilt Cruise and more. SIGN UP TODAY 

Join me this week for CQT Podcast # 69 with Ricky Tims! 
I'm starting off the year on a wonderful roll with special guests. This is the second time I've interviewed him and it was so much fun to find out what he's up to. It was also kinda cool to go back and listen to CQT Podcast # 7 - my first Ricky Tims interview, to hear the difference. I've come a long way baby! 

Ricky & Brandy at his Super Quilt Seminar in Burnaby 2013
You'll hear all about Ricky's upcoming Canadian Super Quilt Seminar events...

Canadian BERNINA Shop Tour
April 7     Cottage Quilting, Kelowna, BC
April 9     Johnsons' Sewing Centre, Edmonton, AB
April 11    Creekbank Sewing Machine Shop, Mt. Forest, ON
April 14    Piece Makers Quilt Shop, Conception Bay South, NF

We'll also chat about Ricky's new series of online workshops called Let's Quilt Together and I ask him why he has such a passion for teaching. It's an interview you don't want to miss. 

And now a note from our sponsor... When I was first invited to host a quilt cruise I had no idea how I was going to provide sewing machines for up to 60 quilters. After a little research and some very polite inquiries, Janome Canada has graciously sponsored 30+ machines for this cruise. And the classes are so fun and carefree that you can share a machine with your room mate, so we can host up to 60 quilters. This is going to be the cruise of a lifetime! 

Have you dreamed about going on a Quilting 
Cruise? Now's your chance with the Star 
Princess 50th Anniversary Sale. Join me 
and Cathy Miller, The Singing Quilter this 
fall for the 15-day Aloha Quilt Cruise 
sponsored by Janome. Includes 
8 FULL DAYS of quilting workshops! 
Prices start as low as $2168
(based on double occupancy). 

And the winning story submitted for the Weekly Quilter's Corner was written by Eileen Emberger. The prize this week is a Ricky Tims original yard of hand dyed fabric and it's perfectly suited to Canadian Quilt Talk because it is called Northern Lights. I know there are Northern Lights in the US but I somehow feel like they are looking up at Canada when they see them. LOL 

You could be a Quilter's Corner winner too! I give away all kinds of great prizes like Northcott Fabric, Quilter's Connection Magazines and more. Just send your short quilting story to info@explorefibre.com for a chance to win. 

So be sure to contact one of the quilt shops listed above if Ricky Tims is coming to a city near you. He only comes to Canada once every few years. It's a super fun day of incredible stories, beautiful quilts, innovative quilting techniques with a take home booklet and an evening of music you don't want to miss. 

So be sure to listen in to Episode # 69 with Ricky Tims on Canadian Quilt Talk this Thursday at 4pm Pacific time. Until next time, dream big and work hard in the studio with Canadian Quilt Talk!
