    Pfaff power quilter p3 users

    I just purchased a Pfaff power quilter p3, a dream come true for me! However, I would like to try ruler work.....Pfaff customer service tells me they make a ruler foot, but not a ruler base for this machine.

    I am wondering if there is a ruler base out there that can be adapted to this long arm? Any p3 users out there that have found a way to do ruler work with this machine?

    I am new to long arm quilting (I upgraded from the Pfaff Grand Quilter), so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!!!!

    I have the same LA. I went to a demonstration given by a Pfaff LA representative. She just used the regular hopping foot that's already on the machine (no special foot) and she didn't use a base. The ruler butted up next to the foot and she just moved it as needed.

    I hope someone else with more understanding speaks up. I purchased a few basic rulers and I finally have time to play with them, but I don't remember too much of what I learned at the demo and I'm terrible at trying to find youtube videos to explain things. Technology isn't something I excel at...

    Try Finishing touch quilting studio. They make ruler bases and feet for machines. I purchased one for my Viking 18x8 when I had it. It was a really nice ruler base. They might have them for your machine. If they do not have one on line contact them they will probably be able to help you!

    Thanks for the suggestion! I found them online and sent an email. I've got my fingers crossed!!!

    Hi,
    I was just wondering how you like your ruler base? I just purchased the Pfaff power quilter p3 also. It is going to be delivered next saturday. What ruler system did you get to go with the base?
