Program: “Women That Influenced Quilting"

Carolyn will present a PowerPoint presentation showcasing some of the women that have had a big influence in quilting starting with Marie Webster in 1915 to Carrie Hall and Rose Kretsinger's book in 1935. She will also talk about many others who have contributed to our art form including modern day quilters. She will bring many of her quilts that feature their designs and techniques.

Speaker: Carolyn McCormick

Carolyn lives near Colorado Springs, CO. Her company is CM Designs, and you all know her most famous product: The Add-A-Quarter Ruler.

"When I started the process from idea to product, I never in my wildest dreams thought it would still be making such an impact on the quilting industry today. I was making a quilt for a dear friend that required templates (she had to be a dear friend for me to use templates). I was so frustrated with the time it took to individually copy, mark, and cut out each piece that I designed a ruler to allow me to rotary cut multiple pieces at one time. As quilters do, I shared my idea with my friends, and they all wanted one.

"After discovering that there was no similar product on the market, I started the process of getting a patent and learning about production and other parts of the business. Naming the ruler proved to be the biggest problem! With the help of my dear friend Diane Donnelly, my husband Larry, and a spiritual "push" from my college boss Ben, the Add-A-Quarter TM ruler was born in Bozeman, MT. We have been a family-owned business since 1995."
