Our Ruler Foot for Domestic Sewing Machines has found its way into homes around the World. Manufactured and Distributed in Australia and now also Manufactured and Distributed in the USA by Sew Steady, (under license to Westalee Design).
Leonie and Bill West started their business in March 2008 with 4 products, which quickly grew with many more specialist templates. Winning the New Inventors, Viewers Choice Grand Final that year was a wonderful acheivement by Leonie. We have always felt that in order to supply the best products, we needed to control the whole process. Now, even after 7 years, we still design and manufacture every Ruler and Template ourselves. Westalee Design has more than 460 different Rulers, Specialty Products and Templates designed for Patchwork and Quilting.


We were so pleased to to have won the Best Product in the 2015 Australian Craft Industry Awards – People’s Choice. Our Domestic Machine Ruler Foot and Templates are making a difference.

With a growing range of Templates now available for the Domestic Machine, currently at 260 different styles and sizes, we have breathed new life into the world of quilting for Domestic Machine owners. Our support range of videos continues to grow and Leonie has many more ideas that will be transferred to Acrylic.

Sew Steady are the only Manufacturer and Distributor for Westalee Design in the USA

Sew Steady have been manufacturing and distributing our products in the USA since the end of march and have placed selected products in many stores. What does this mean to our customers in the United States?
Firstly, no change in product quality, or performance. Secondly, delivery times will be far better than the 10 to 16 days currently being experienced. Thirdly, the cost of shipping from Australia to the USA is expensive.
It is important to support home based Manufacturing and who better than Sew Steady in the USA and of course, Westalee Design in Australia.

Sew Steady can be contacted by email click here to send email or use their free call number 800-837-3261 and ask them about our products.
They will soon be at a store near you.

Our Ruler Foot for Domestic Machines suits over 3,900 Sewing Machines, High or Low Shank. We currently produce over 260 different templates for Longarm Machines, Sit Down Machines, and of course the Domestic Machine, with each template made machine specific, cut with all necessary reference lines, foot size compensated and in a thickness to operate safely on your Machine.
All of our Rulers and Templates are cut from Clear Cast Acrylic, with the finest quality laser equipment to give you the best results.
We design and manufacture our entire range of Rulers and Templates and thoroughly test them before releasing.

So you have a Domestic Sewing Machine and would like to stitch designs without drawing them first or following stencils. We have the answer. Ruler Feet designed to use on Domestic Sewing Machines

Ruler work on Longarm Machines can provide outstanding results and for a long time owners of Domestic Sewing Machines have been asking us, "Can we use rulers on our sewing machines?"

We are proud to announce, that after many months of testing, we have manufactured a Ruler Foot to suit most makes of Sewing Machines, Pfaff, Husqvarna, Janome, Brother, Juki, Singer and Bernina to name a few. (Bernina machines will require the Bernina Adapter Shank).

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 and you can run a ruler completely around the Westalee Ruler Foot

For Low Shank Machines, you should use a 3 mm (1/8") Ruler or Template to avoid hitting the Shank.
For High Shank machines you should use 4.5 mm (3/16") Rulers or Templates. In some cases you may be able to use the thicker templates as supplied for use on Longarm Machines and some Sit Down Longarm machines.

If you do not know what shank your machine is, all you need to do is lower your foot and then measure the height of the centre of the hole for the screw from the needle plate.

To help you get started we will include a curved and straight sided template with the each Ruler Foot purchased
