Upcoming Speakers for the General Meetings

December 15th, 2020 – Special Christmas Demo

Margriet Warren has agreed to show us another project or two that can be used as quick sewing gifts for Christmas. Instructions will be forwarded at the time of the meeting.

January 19th, 2021 – Kellie Kaczmarek – Silly Moon Rulers

Kellie is a Canadian quilter, business owner, wife, mother and owner of two very large dogs. She is fortunate to have experience in, and access to CNC Milling equipment, as well as a variety of software programs that enable her (along with her math guru hubby) to create machine quilting rulers that will do just what she wants them to do. She enjoys coming up with new ideas that make ruler work fun and accessible for all quilters.

Silly Moon Quilting Co is proudly Canadian, and all its products are designed and manufactured in beautiful British Columbia. Kellie always likes to warn people, rulers are like potato chips, you can’t have just one!
