Ruler of the Month!
This month our Special Ruler is the Creative Grids 60-degree Triangle!

This classic ruler is a must for your sewing room tools! There's a demo available in the Blue Hen Classroom if you want to see how really talented this one is. And remember with every purchase of the 60-degree Triangle ruler, you will receive a free Cut Loose Press pattern! A great way to get started using your new tool!
   And some of the possiblities...    

Just so you know how useful this little ruler is... I cut the fabric out for this Easy Striped Table Runner by the Quilt Company while a customer browsed around the shop, then sewed the pieces together while the porkchops were baking for dinner! Fast and spectacular with the 60-degree Triangle ruler and some of our Christmas Border fabric!

Full disclosure - I did ask Jody to finish it off this morning while I typed up this newsletter. But you can see, it's quick!
