MOST IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE CORRECT FOOT FOR YOUR MACHINE
LET US GUIDE YOU.


Guidelines for Ruler Foot Selection
for your Domestic Machine!

* LOW SHANK FOOT use 3mm rules
*MEDIUM SHANK FOOT use 3mm rulers
*HIGH SHANK FOOT use 4.5mm rulers
(THE STRAIGHT STITCH MACHINE) *SPECIAL HIGH SHANK FOOT use 4.5 rulers
*SLANT FOOT FOR SINGER MACHINE use 3mm rulers

The Ruler foot, made from composite stainless steel, is designed to float just above the quilt sandwich, there is no hopping mechanism to get in the way of your hands or impede your vision

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.

*make sure the auto lift is turned off.
