We will help guide you to the templates you will find so useful and creative to begin
your ruler work journey

  • * LOW SHANK FOOT use 3mm rules
  • *MEDIUM SHANWK FOOT use 3mm rulers
  • *HIGH SHANK FOOT use 4.5mm rulers
  • *SPECIAL HIGH SHANK FOOT use 4.5 rulers

The base of the foot rests against the edge of the ruler.
Rule #1
for ruler work is to never raise the foot while the needle is down or lower the needle while the foot is up.

Special Note:
Low shank machines have less clearance behind the foot and under the presser foot bar - Low Shank Rulers are 3mm and the thinnest rulers to work with the Low Shank Foot (LS) and Medium Shank Foot (MS)

Husqvarna Viking Sewing Machines
Most are Low Shank Machines


The information listed below seems to be a great fix for the issues often experienced when template quilting on Husqvarna Viking sewing machines.
Designer Diamonds, Rubys, Sapphires,Opal,Epic etc.
1. Do not choose FREE MOTION setting.
2. Go into settings menu and uncheck AUTO FEED DOG DROP - this will open another Menu where you can CHECK to lower the feed dogs.
3. Then uncheck SENSOR SYSTEM.
4. Use the STRAIGHT STITCH (make sure to center your needle in the RULER FOOT) and you should be good.
(I have not had any issues with the Designer EPIC;
however, if you experience problems, please try the above changes.
Information submitted by Donelle McAdams, Accredited Westalee Teacher)
*make sure the auto lift is turned off.

Have had customers tell me their machines sew perfectly until they add their foot
then they have problems. We really need to take time to adjust our tension as shown in Leonie Wests Video. It makes a world of difference!


If your thread is pulling tight loosen top tension
If Thread is too loose you need to tighten your top tension
Always adjust bobbin tension first and then adjust top tension
Thread tension makes a huge difference
