Westalee Ruler Foot Starter Set (Choice of 4 versions)

This ruler foot from Westalee allows you to safely use rulers with your domestic machine, even if your machine's brand doesn't have a ruler foot available.

If your machine's brand has a ruler foot available, we recommend using it, especially when it comes to Janome and Bernina machines as these are more easily adjusted for height.

One half inch in diameter, this round, 1/4 inch high foot fits nearly all sewing machines and the screw attachment point is adjustable for the thickness of your project. The foot features a semi-circular cut out at the front for better visibility. For more information about ruler feet visit our FAQ's page.

This set comes with instructions, the ruler foot, 'stable tape' and a great template with a curve on one side and a straight side. The 12" arc/straight template is a ruler work quilter's friend. This circle-based template from Westalee features a convex curve based upon the curve of a 12 inch diameter circle and a straight edge on the other side. The thickness of the template is matched to the foot shank type.

The stable tape is an aid to reduce ruler slip and helps grip your quilt top. Just cut into smaller lengths and peel the  adhesive backing to stick onto your rulers. Amy recommends not applying as a long single strip as this may cause the ruler to rock from side to side.

Please enter machine brand and model number to the "Special Instructions for Seller" box during checkout (in the shopping cart area) so we can verify the correct foot version has been ordered. This listing provides a choice of four shank versions, we are happy to help you via email  if you can't determine the shank type you need from the information listed here. If you order the wrong version and don't include your machine model in the order notes, we will do an exchange, but you will have to pay for the shipping do do so.

See the diagram below for information on how to determine shank height. Measure with the presser foot down. Additional info on choosing the proper foot is found on our FAQs page.

Please note that while the low and medium shank ruler foot from Westalee comes with 3mm thick templates, many of our Westalee rulers and templates are only stocked in 4.5 mm thickness. Thicker rulers are easier to grip and keep in the proper place. If a template will wrap around to the back of a foot during use, we do carry those in multiple thicknesses. This also allows us to carry a larger variety of rulers than if we stocked both sizes of templates for each design. We are happy to make a special order for different thicknesses when desired from Westalee.
