Guild Demos/Trunk Shows
Are you looking for an energetic and passionate speaker to give presentations, or teach workshops to your group or guild about the amazing world of ruler quilting?
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!
Silly Moon Quilting Co. started in October of 2018 by attending our first quilt show in Chilliwack B.C. Since then we have expanded our company exposure to social media as well as quilt shows, guild meetings, retreat presentations and demonstrations. With the occurrence of the Covid Pandemic, we have found a new way to share our passion about rulers! We now are offering classes and guild demonstrations via Zoom!
If you have not seen and used our rulers, we would love to Zoom in at a guild meeting or retreat you are hosting and give a presentation on our rulers and the basics of quilting with rulers on a longarm or domestic machine! We cover the benefits or ruler quilting, the difference in ruler thicknesses, how to choose rulers, how to set up your machine and work area for ruler quilting, what items will make your ruler quilting easier, ruler markings and what they mean as well as many other tips and tricks. Our attendance also includes a small trunk show as well as an “over the shoulder” view of the basics of ruler quilting. The demo and trunk show is approximately one hour, but can be tailored to suit your needs.
We currently offer two different classes taught via Zoom. Each of the classes listed below is 3 hours in length and for up to 25 people.
Option #1: Introduction to Rulerwork!
In this class you will learn the basics of ruler work by doing! We will cover how to set up your machine for ruler work, why we do ruler work, how to create several different designs using these rulers and a ton of helpful tips! A PDF pattern is supplied to make the table topper shown, and during the class, you will be shown how to use each of the rulers to create different designs. This class is taught using Zoom and allows you to “look over the shoulder” while the techniques are taught.
Please note: Silly Moon Quilting Co. Rulers "Charming and Edgie 6" are required for this class.
Option #2: All about the Curves!
Concentric circles, clam shells, Baptist fan design and more! In this fun filled class, we will show you how to use the "Beanie" set of rulers to easily create all these awesome designs! We also discuss borders and how to tackle those difficult corners when quilting! This class is taught using Zoom and allows you to “look over the shoulder” while the techniques are taught. A PDF pattern will be supplied to complete the table runner as shown.
Please note: The full set (4 rulers) of Silly Moon Quilting Co. "Beanies" are required for this class
