After learning how to quilt and making quilts over an 8 year period starting in the early 1990s, Thea Jirak ventured into the small business world as a
quilt shop owner by opening Quilting Delights in 2001.

Thea has since invented several quilting related products such as, the
Bernina Stitch Regulator (BSR) compatible Ruler Work Attachment for
straight line and curved quilting, a Stitch in the Ditch Attachment
compatible with the BSR, and Storable Bliss Hardshell Storage solutions
for sewing machine  feet and other quilting accessories and now the Make It 8!! Marking Ruler so anyone can quickly and easily making HSTs.
