Featured Guest

Silly Moon Quilting Co. is a Fraser Valley, British Columbia based business that has begun designing and making machine quilting rulers and tools for the quilting industry. We are a small business who saw a need for unique machine quilting rulers for domestic and longarm machines and were able to supply that need! 

What an entertaining and informative lecture we had from Silly Moon! If you are looking to learn or expand your ruler quilting skills, check them out! Thanks Silly Moon Quilting Co.!
