I am thrilled and proud to be a Sew Steady Education Ambassador and a Westalee Design Acredited Teacher. The freedom and creativity generated by these tools is so satisfying. I want to give that power to quilters everywhere.
ESSENTIAL TIPS THAT CORRECT RULER FOOT PROBLEMS 1) With the presser foot down and the ruler foot installed, when you look at the ruler foot do you see a smallish gap between the foot and the fabric. This is the number 1 cause of thread breakage or shredding for rulerwork. Many machine have an adjustment for presser foot pressure. Between the foot adjustment screw and the presser foot pressure adjustment, the ruler foot should be kissing the fabric sandwich with no gap. You should have it as low as possible without it preventing you from moving the sandwich freely. 2) Before sewing, lower the presser foot and, with the needle threaded, put the thread through the ruler foot. Pull the thread gently straight towards you. It should go but you should feel some resistance as the tension disks are closed with the foot down. If you don't feel that --re thread. If it feels loosy goosey, try to raise the tension and if you feel like it will break if you pull it, then lower the tension. 3) Next make sure the bobbin is securely seated by threading the bobbin path. If there is a thread cutter in the bobbin area, do not use it to cut the thread. For a top load bobbin, hold your finger on the bobbin so it can't turn and tug gently on the bobbin thread to make sure it is seated all the way in the bobbin tension area.
