The Creative Grids® product line encompasses over 100 rulers and are highly coveted by quilters world-wide.
Checker Distributors and Creative Grids® UK Ltd. joined forces.
Both agreed to commit to Independent Businesses by insisting that the rulers not be sold to Retail Discount Stores.
Checker Distributors is the exclusive distributor of Creative Grids® in North America, while Creative Grids® UK ltd continues as an exclusive distributor in Europe.
Sheila Waterfield of Leicester, England essentially started Creative Grids® in 1989.
The family owned business at the time involved plastics. She realized that the scraps from the plastics company could be turned into templates for her quilting friends. Soon the Waterfield's had developed a variety of quilting templates.
Sheila decided to print in black and white so the quilter could distinguish measurements and markings on light and dark fabrics. She then invented the opaque, non-slip grip that sets Creative Grids® rulers apart from all others. When her daughter Rachel Cross took over designing the rulers, the revolutionary Turn-a-Round feature was added.
Creative Grids® are sold in independent quilt shops and online retailers worldwide.
