  • January's Speaker Is Ricki Selva

    A fourth generation quilter, Ricki was raised on a west St. Louis County farm and left home (with her grandmother’s Featherweight) to attend the US Air Force Academy in 1976. When she left the Air Force, she took up quilting and five years later she began teaching. Ricki joined Jinny Beyer’s Quilting Seminar Staff in 1997. Her work has appeared in books and magazines, most recently in Jinny Beyer's latest book, "Quilters Album of Patchwork Patterns.” Her hobbies include photography, travel, volunteering world wide with Habitat for Humanity and spending time with her pet-beasts. Please check Ricki's website at
    www.rickiselva.com

    Ricki's Lecture will be "World View".

    Faces, places, sights, smells tastes… Color theory and quilt design based on seeing inspiration everywhere in the world.

    Workshops:
    Friday, 1/23, 9 am to 4 pm "Dangerous Curves"
    Note: This workshop will be held at the Quilting Bee.

    Saturday, 1/24, 9 am to 4 pm "Painting with Patches"
    Note: This workshop will be held at the Hampton Inn.
