At AQS in Grand Rapids, MI! She is such a nice lady. I saw her at Sisters in 2010 but there were sooooo many people swarmmed around her that I couldn't get close enough! Her & Rick Timms [saw him too but didn't get a chance to talk to] were vendering at the show and walked right up and started talking to her...she even signed my program!
She was selling dvd's, their magazine and subscriptions to the on line show QNN. She said "never going back to HGTV cause she is now worldwide and treated better", likes doing her own shows/magazine where she makes the rules!
Take time for kindness & for giving. Take time for friends & happy living!
How cool is that! (to quote my favorite TV quilter )
I did too and was so surprised how tiny she is,she certainly looked a tad taller on TV...I ran into outside the show also once.She always had a swarm of folks around her.
I didn't see her in GR but met her before and she was very nice. Life is always better when you make the rules and aren't under someone else's control. I am glad you met her and had a nice time.
How fun! I do miss her programs.
I enjoy her online show. Also bought her newest paper piecing book. Lynne: WAY TO GO! She is a neat lady!
I met her at the Chicago Quilt Show a few yrs. ago. Same thing--friendly, nice and down-to-earth. I was lucky, few others were around.
Glad you got your turn...
I'm sure that was a lot of fun!!!
my philosophy: there are no real mistakes in quilting, just design opportunities!!
I have met her too. Also attended a seminar she put on. She seems to be a really nice person. I hadn't realized how tall she was.
I still do miss "Simply Quilts" terribly, but it was time for her to move on and that she did, in a really big way.
I, too, miss Simply Quilts. That show taught me so much. I didn't know she was online. Where do I find her?
Alex and Ricky Tims host The Quilt Show an excellent online show that has not only celebrity guests, but also lessons and tons of other leaning opportunities. The shows are almost an hour and they do two 13 episode series a year. If you go to www.thequiltshow.com you can see some free shows and if you're interested you can sign up there. You can also purchase earlier seasons and DVDs. I learned a lot watching Simply Quilts, but I've also learned a lot watching these shows. The nice thing is that you can view them over and over again if you're interested in learning a particular technique. Alex and Ricky seem to work very well together.
I miss Simply Quilts as well. She explained everything so clearly. I used to have my morning coffee watching Alex's show.
Darn, I knew I should have gone to AQS!
