    Ruler

    Look what my husband gifted me with today! He went and had a 1 -1/2 X 10 inch ruler cut out of 1/4 inch plexi glass for Fmqing. As you an see by this quick sample how nice and straight my lines are with the FMQ foot running along the ruler. Yipppeeee!

    Yes they do, as does Home Depot.

    Whatever you do, make sure that the plexiglass, or acrylic is thicker than the highest point your hopping foot goes while sewing. 1/4" should be good, but make sure there is no way at all that it can slip under the foot.
