Our Mission Statement
To educate, inspire, entertain, connect and grow the world quilting community
in a fun, positive, interactive environment.
On January 1, 2007, Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson joined forces to bring TV-quality quilt shows to the internet. Ricky Tims, the consummate entertainer, teacher, and award-winning quilter had backing from BERNINA to create a quilting series. He contacted Alex Anderson who had just ended a 10-year, 500 show run as host of the popular TV series “Simply Quilts” on HGTV. Quilters were crying out for more of these type of shows featuring the top quilting teachers. Alex and Ricky contacted producers, directors, and editors with vast experience in the TV world including Oprah, HGTV, Anderson Cooper, Dr Phil, and the world of sports tv, to put original programming on the internet.
The Quilt Show is the world’s first full-service interactive online video/web TV site created just for quilters worldwide, with over 160,000 registered members in more than 100 countries.
