  • Kid Giddy

    Kerry Goulder has been sewing for fun since she can remember.

Kerry's company motto is to "add more giddy to your life." This is a constant reminder to have fun and to do things that make you happy, which, of course, means more sewing. Kerry lives in Southern Maine with her husband and their two daughters. When she's not sewing, she loves to run and is training for her third degree black belt in Shaolin Kempo Karate.

  • Missouri Star Quilt Co.

    Starting small and aiming high, the family-owned Missouri Star Quilt Company began in November 2008, selling a few quilting supplies and offering machine quilting services from its Hamilton, MO store. The decision was made to grow the business online with web-based tutorials for beginning and advanced quilters. It wasn't long before Missouri Star became the biggest quilting channel on YouTube and began offering pre-cut fabrics as its core product. These stylish bundles, cut in various shapes and sizes and in an array of coordinating prints from designer fabric lines, grew the business exponentially. In less than four years, Missouri Star has been able to offer the world's largest selection of pre-cut fabrics and is a natural choice for its own line of Sizzix dies.
