Westalee Ruler Foot Kit #1

Shank Size:

Add to Cart

The Westalee Domestic Quilting Ruler Foot allows you to free motion quilt on any domestic sewing machine with the Westalee templates.
You may also use traditional 1/4 inch thick long arm templates but you will not be able to hold the ruler/template against all 4 sides of the low shank Westalee ruler foot.  The medium and high shank feet can accommodate 1/4 inch thick rulers on all 4 sides of the foot.

Once your foot is mounted on the machine, you will need to center the needle so that it is in the center of the foot.

The style of foot varies depending on your machine, and we currently offer 3 different styles based on the 3500 different machines in the market today. (Options are low shank, medium shank, and high shank...see the 3 sizes in photo 1 above)

Included in this Complete Starter Kit: One ruler foot (low, medium or high shank), 12” Arc Template, adjustment guide and stable tape (See photo 2 above).

This kit is IDENTICAL to our other Westalee Ruler Starter Kit (Kit 2) selling for $ 75.00, except it does not include the Feather Template.

Foot & Template Thickness:

If you do not know what shank your machine is, all you need to do is lower your foot and then measure the height of the center of the hole for the screw from the needle plate. See the 2 diagrams below to determine if your machine is high shank vs low shank:
