I found this CBS News report on quilting.. featuring Ricky Timms. Be sure to check it out HERE. His work is just amazing! He is just like many of us, trying to get someone new interested in the allure of the quilt.
Oh, and I want to go to one of these huge quilt shows one day. Perhaps I can plan my vacation time around one. My family's usual winter vacation spot is Fairmont Hot Springs in BC. Since I can no longer ski, I drag along my sewing machine and more projects than I will ever be able to finish. I spend my days happily working toward finishing a UFO during that week and, of course, soak in the hot springs every night. It is truly wonderful.
