Want to quilt your own quilts and make them look professionally done? You can create a long arm look with using rulers on your home machine!  Sewing On the River has scheduled a 2 day class on Quilting with Rulers.  This course will require the use of a ruler foot made specially for your individual machine.*   This class  will focus on using rulers from the Westalee Ruler Kit 1. This is a technique class, and will prepare you to move on to more advanced ruler work. 


Please sign up early as it takes several weeks to get the foot and ruler kits in stock.
