La Veta gets hammered with a spring snowfall.
La Veta, CO - Thursday, April 17 @ 11:01 pm
Whew! Taping 14 TQS shows, a retreat in La Veta, one week with Rick Mahal (TQS Video Editor) and one day to pack for a long trip. Oh yeah, on top of that, we got 12 inches of snow last night. Thankfully the roads are clear now. I hope you are ready because I'm planning on taking you with me. No need to pack your bags - just log on to TQS and enjoy the ride.
First, this journey will take me to Paducah, Kentucky for the AQS show and contest. Alex and Libby will meet up with me and we will do a Ricky Tims Super Quilt Seminar during the three days prior to the official kick off of the AQS event. I won't return back to La Veta until the first week of May. However, I've got my trusty camera and plan to bring you all the exicitement as it unfolds!
I have a surprise treat planned for the 1800 quilters attending my concert on Friday, April 25, at the Four Rivers Center in Paducah (see photos of this spectacular venue). Any guesses about the surprise? Actually, there are three surprises that night. Do you wonder what other mysteries lie ahead? What do you hope the camera will record for you? - and no, the concert will NOT be recorded for you - concert hall rules!
Speaking of Road Trip - we just finished editing Part One of our "official" two part TQS Road Trip. I'm bursting with excitement about these Road Trip shows and can't wait for June 9th and June 23rd. There has never - never ever - been ANTYTHING like this for quilters. Fasten your seat belts, there are fun, surprises, advice, lessons, and quilting treats coming to a computer screen near you! Season Two subscribers are in for real treat.
See you around the bend. -Ricky
ADDED, April 18, 6:48am. Toady we'll be heading into Kansas on I 70 - stopping in Lawrence, KS for the night. Then, on Saturday, we're heading through Kansas City, St. Louis and down to Paducah, KY. Anyone on that route, be sure to wave. Should we stop in for a cup of coffee?
