*NEW ADDITIONS TO OUR STORE*
We are very excited to introduce our new QUILT SUSPENSION SYSTEM. This is designed to render your quilt essentially weightless, and in turn, make free motion work easier, without the weight of the quilt working against you.
Ernie and I have been brainstorming the past few months to come up with a system that is both functional AND portable. We designed, assembled and tested a few prototypes, and finally developed one we are proud to make available to you.
It will arrive in 3 pieces that are easy-peasy to assemble...No tools required! It is just as easy to disassemble and take with you to classes/retreats, etc.
You can read more about it by clicking HERE, and there is a video on the same page to further illustrate this suspension system.
If you have been bitten by the "Ruler Work Bug", we have added several rulers and templates to our store.
We’ve just come out with our own starter set of rulers. Quilters are always asking me what rulers to buy when first starting out, and I couldn’t find a comparable starter set out there. Our starter set includes: a 10 in x 2.5 in straight line ruler, a 6.5 in arc ruler, an 8 in arc ruler, and a 12 in arc ruler:
Our rulers are available in both the traditional ¼ in thick long arm size as well as the narrow 3mm size if you are using the Westalee low or medium shank ruler foot. They are laser cut and laser etched from fluorescent green acrylic. This color makes it easier to see the registration marks and makes it easier to find the rulers in a busy work space. You can learn more about them in our online store by clicking right here. A good straight line ruler and a variety of arc rulers are the bread and butter of millions of ruler work designs!
We also offer our own line of Turret Rulers to make beautiful swag and frame designs on your quilt. We have 3 different rulers in both 1/4 inch and 3mm thicknesses. To see these new additions, and learn more about them, click here. To see a 10 min. video on using these rulers, click on the video below:
Furthermore, to help you get started with ruler work, we are offering a special on a bundle by Westalee...if you buy the combination of one of the Westalee Ruler Foot Kits and the Westalee Sample Template Kit, you will save on your purchase.
In October 2015, we released our newest DVD, "Ruler Work for the Sit Down Quilter, vol. 1". Click here to go to the DVD in the store.
This instructional DVD is the beginner's guide to performing ruler-guided free motion quilting as a sit-down quilter. Demonstrations are performed on several different makes/models of home sewing machines as well as on a George long-arm sit-down machine. Patsy also covers many "filler designs" that can be used to fill frameworks or skeletons created with ruler work, including the use of featherettes. Whether you are a sit-down quilter or a long arm quilter, there is great information on this DVD! Total run time is 111 minutes. Full color and DVD formatted to play on DVD players worldwide.
