    try doing a google search for Philadelphia craft stores. I did one and several came up including an AC More store. Do you have a smart phone? If you do, you could use Yelp to find craft stores.

    Thanks Auntpiggylpn. I was hoping to not have to drive as Philly is too many one ways for me :shock: I found one that is within walking distance of the hotel I am at but they don't show rulers as something they sell. I will call them in the morning and see. Otherwise I may have to see if the hotel has a regular ruler just for the straight edge!
    Thanks again

    Make sure you get a philly cheesesteak from Pat's. Try some Irish potatoes too! Philly is a fun city and much calmer that NYC. I live about 20 minutes from the city in NJ. I used to live in north Jersey about 30 minutes from NYC and NYC is much busier and more difficult to negotiate if you are not a city driver.

    If you are in center city, I know there is an art store on Broad street around Locust (Lautrec) and there is another art store on South. I'm gapping out on that name at the moment. Both of those will at least have art rulers with some length to them. I don't know of any regular sewing/quilting store in CC area any longer only drapery, silks that sort of stuff. How long are you in Philly? I used to live there and now am in the 'burbs but if you are going to be here for a while, I can meet you and you can borrow some of mine. PM me if that will help.
