Kathy Oster - Lewistown, MT

"I bought your quilt guide set from the new quilt shop here in Lewistown, MT and I've never been happier with a tool! I'm getting on in years(74) and my sight isn't what it was but the guides made cutting my last quilt blocks so much easier!!! Wish I'd had them a lot sooner in my sewing life. Thank you for the best quilting tool I've ever owned!"

Judith Armstrong - Truckee, CA

"I use your guides (Quilt Ruler Upgrade Kit ) almost daily and find they are a lifesaver. Thank you for designing them and making them available."

Leann Ivins Williams via Facebook

"Love your guides you can put on rulers. Most of my rulers had them on them and I don't have to worry about the rulers moving on the fabric."
