Ricky Tims is coming to Asheville with his super quilt seminar and we are arranging a bus trip.

Would love to have some of your guild members join us.  If you go to Ricky Tims website you can see all the awesome things we will learn and be treated to a piano concert by Ricky Tims on Friday night.  Please let us know if you would be interested in joining us.  Here are the details:
