Longarm on Frame Machines
Ideally the Ruler Foot should measure 1/2” across the collar with the needle stitching at 1/4” from the ruler or template edge. This will make it easy to calculate spacings across a block or quilt.
Nolting, A1, Handy Quilter, Innova and Prodigy machines all have a true ½” round Ruler Foot. Gammil and APQS have a 9/16” Ruler Foot, which will stitch out at 9/32” from the ruler or template edge.
We now have a 1/2" hopping foot made for Gammill Machines.
Please advise if your longarm is 1/2" or 9/16" so we can supply the correct rulers
