See Ricky in the Big Apple and Support the Quilt Alliance



Ricky Tims will headline the 2015 Quilters Take Manhattan event, to be held on September 26 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm at the Fashion Institute of Technology in the heart of New York City.
 
This year, the QTM event weekend spans three days and add-on events include museum tours, walking tours of the Garment District led by fellow quilters, workshops at The City Quilter, a lecture by Aurifil's , a Moda Meet and Greet party at Kathryn Markel Fine Art, an After Dark cocktail party at the studio and loft home of Victoria Findlay Wolfe, and a chance to see the Tony-award-winning musical Something Rotten with a special up-close peek at some of the exquisite costumes.
 
Proceeds support the Quilt Alliance, a national nonprofit that documents, preserves and shares the history of quilts and their makers. Both Ricky and his late father Richard Tims, along with more than a thousand other quiltmakers have been interviewed for the Quilt Alliance’s oral history project, Quilters’ S.O.S. - Save Our Stories (Q.S.O.S.), that is archived in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

Tickets to Quilters Take Manhattan are still available. Click here to visit the Quilt Alliance’s website.

WeAllSew.com: Free Pyramid Pouch Tutorial

Molly Hanson over at WeAllSew.com and author of Free Motion Quilting for Beginners, created this fun project from her leftover quilting practice squares. It's a great way to use them, says Molly:

"I tested its size and it will fit a DSLR camera quite nicely, I also tried out my wallet, cell phone, keys, small makeup pouch and mini sketch book/pens and it fit all that! This is a new take on the traditional zipper pouch, and it sure makes a great gift. You only need a few supplies to make it, so let’s get started, and in less than a few hours start to finish you’ll have your very own!
