Quilt Luminarium is a comprehensive quilt symposium that demystifies seemingly complex concepts, teaches mastery of unique techniques, and harnesses the power of the ever-elusive muse of creativity. A diverse range of topics are presented in such a way that quilters of all experience, expertise, and styles will enjoy. 


For nearly two decades, Ricky's multi-day quilt seminars have been witnessed by thousands. Now, they are being offered virtually from the comfort of you home. There is nothing to compare with an in-person event, but 21st century technology offers the next best thing. See what others had to say in the comments below. The depth, breadth, and clarity of Virtual Quilt Luminiarum affords the best virtual experience possible.

THE VERDICT IS IN!
"There are tears of gratitude running down my face as I write to you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You have opened up a new avenue of learning and understanding complex ideas to me." —Michelle Tothill

"Thank you so much for making the Luminarium virtual! I am full from the end of my tippy toes up to the top of my head with all the information!" — 
Dee Dykstra

"Though I was very sad to miss seeing your Luminarium in person, I am in awe of the wonderful job you did in bringing this to us." — Doris Wells

"...you’ve done a marvelous job with the virtual edition. I really appreciate the closeups and all the little tips!" —Wendy Benigno

QUILT LUMINIARIUM IS A STREAMING EVENT - IT'S NOT LIVE!
Each day you will watch the Quilt Luminarium sessions from the comfort of your home and at your convenience. The video sessions are streaming (on-demand) and not posted at a set time for live viewing. The only LIVE aspect will be Q&A sessions via Zoom that will be offered at varying times during the event. This flexible format allows for international participants to watch at their convenience and then choose Q&A sessions on Zoom that best suits their time considerations.

Ricky says, "I made the switch from presenting the Ricky Tims Super Quilt Seminars to doing the more in-depth Quilt Luminairum in 2015. I planned to offer a Virtual Quilt Luminarium option as well. As a result, over the past few years, I had the foresight to record these events, knowing that a recording of a LIVE presentation would be the best way to give registrants the best virtual experience—complete with audience reactions and interaction. Virtual Quilt Luminarium is being assembled from dozens of hours of footage. I must admit, I’m very pleased with the results seeing it all come together."
