DO YOU WANT A QUILT LUMINARIUM IN YOUR REGION?

Ricky wants to go where you want him to come! You can nominate your region. If there are several requests for Quilt Luminarium in a particular region of the US, Ricky will start an online petition.
 

Once the petition is live, the more signatures he gets, the more likely it will be that he will schedule an event in your region. Remember, these are regional events, not guild-specific or city-specific events. Nominate your REGION by adding a comment below.

Due to all that they bring (driving with a loaded trailer), they can only present Quilt Luminarium (in the lower 48) of the US states. There are other options for international appearances.

Have fun, it will make you smile and yearn for a simpler time.
