Quilter’s Rule is a family-run business offering a great range of Design Tools for quilting. Patricia Simon from Quilter’s Rule will be spending some time with us at Stand B32 at the Festival of Quilts, and will also be hosting 2 talks:

  • Templates/Rulers & Machine Quilting: A Primer Course – Sunday, 12 August 10:30
  • Unlock your Creativity: The Key is Templates/Rulers – Sunday, 12 August 15:30

Patricia has developed a knack for designing different quilting patterns which she will be demonstrating at Festival of Quilts. Her signature class “Unlock Your Creativity (The Key is Templates)” has opened a whole new world to people who are not naturally artists.  Her techniques are applicable to all quilters regardless of whether you hand quilt, use a home machine, a short-arm, a mid-arm, or a long-arm machine.  These techniques can even be used in a variety of different crafts. All Quilter’s Rule products come with an easy to understand downloadable instructions.

If you’d like to see Patricia in action pop along to the Quilt Direct Stand at Festival of Quilts or book one of Patricia’s classes.

Have a look at Quilt Direct’s great range of Quilter’s Rule products. We look forward to seeing you at the Festival of Quilts.
