Our quilt guild, Genesee Valley Quilt Club, hosted Ricky Tims, Alex Anderson, and Libby Lehman for a three day extravaganza. What a wonderful event! There were about 740 participants from the U.S. and Canada - a record attendance figure for Ricky. The RIT campus proved the perfect venue.
This was one of the most organized and informative programs that I have attended on quilting. Ricky, Alex, and Libby are all excellent teachers. We all received a colorful seminar booklet which covered the major themes of the program - it really helped as it was an intensive program in quilting techniques.
The instructors took advantage of all the latest technology to teach their material. We shifted between big screen power point presentations and live video as they demonstrated the finer points of their techniques. A display of quilts served as completed examples of what was being taught.
By the end of the program, I think most of us were numb with information and totally grateful for the experience.
