Q:  Where are the Super-Star Rulers?
A:  Another manufacturer claims that our Super-Star Ruler is too similar to theirs. We decided to take it down until we figure out a long term solution. We have no idea when it may make a return. The video remains on YouTube for people looking for the demo instructions.


Q: What are petite & classic sizes, and which is right for my machine? 
Our Appliguide tools and Clamshell tools come in two different sizes, because there is small differences between manufacturers.

  • Petite: This size is used for all machines other than Gammill, which have a 1/4" foot (1/2" in diameter). Compatible machines include: APQS machines made in 2017 & after, A-1, Janome, Baby Lock, Bernina, Handi Quilter, Husqvarna, Innova, Juki, Martelli, Nolting, Pfaff, Prodigy, and Tin Lizzie.
  • Classic: This size is used for all years of Gammill, and APQS machines made before 2017. These Machines use a foot that is slightly over 1/2" in diameter.
