Look Who I Saw Today
Do you know who this quilting personality is? Ricky Tims and the rest of the crew from the Route 66 bus tour stopped in at the Quilted Fox this morning. They are on a bus tour from Chicago to Los Angeles following the old Route 66 ("Get your kicks on Route 66!"). The tour is a Jim West travel opportunity and Jim was on hand this morning as well as Justin Schultz, Ricky's partner. Ricky wanted everyone on the tour to meet his mentor, award-winning quilter, Suzanne Marshal, who was on hand to meet and greet, show off her quilts, and sign her books.
I had seriously thought about going on this tour. Around the time it was first announced last year I was newly retired and trying to figure out what I was doing and where I was going. Jim promised that he will run this tour again in a couple of years so there will be a future opportunity available.
