We’ve received glowing reports from friends who have seen Ricky in person and plan to go again! Here are just a few of them:
“Ricky Tims is a show by himself, regardless if it is teaching classes or conducting a concert. I could listen to him for hours. His music is inspirational and tells stories. He couples his songs with stories of his grandmother, learning to play the piano as a young child, growing up and becoming an incredible quilter. His designs are like no other designs I’ve seen before. His goals, in my opinion, are to convey to the listener that we too can be incredible quilters if that is what we want, as well as achieve anything else in our lives, even though they may be beyond our reach or knowledge at this time. I am so thrilled he is coming back to KC to share his expertise, his passion, and to help develop in all of us a continual love for the craft we love — quilting.”

“I have seen Ricky Tims perform a couple of times. He is very funny and entertaining and a talented piano player. I have taken classes from him and use techniques learned in his class.”
— Deb E, Kaw Valley Quilters Guild
“I highly recommend classes and concerts led by Ricky Tims. You will thoroughly enjoy both his musical entertainment and his quilt knowledge. Even if you have heard him before, you should consider signing up for his concert and workshops — it is like going to the movie twice — you will gain new information!”
— Erin C, Nimble Thimbles Quilt Guild
“I got to see Ricky Tims in concert several years ago in Paducah with my mom (who is not a quilter). He is a fantastic showman! During his ‘concert’, he has quilts on display in the background, talks about some of them, sings, plays keyboard, tells about how he got started quilting, and gets the audience involved. There were people that had been to more than one of his concerts and his seminars. He says he ‘doesn’t do hard’, so when he tries a new technique he is looking for a way to simplify it and is always looking for ways to make things he has done already easier. He is glad to share his knowledge with the quilting audience and the non-quilter. His ‘classes’ are lecture style and he makes them very interesting. I went to his ‘Quilt Luminarium’ last March. It was wonderful. No, it wasn’t free, but during his lectures he shares everything he does in quilting, even how to dye fabric. Some of the things he teaches takes money out of his pocket if you go home and do it yourself, but that is part of what he loves about doing this. I tell every quilter I know, ‘If you get the chance to see Ricky Tims in concert, don’t miss it.'”
