The first ruler I ever bought was a June Tailor 6x12 and it is still my favorite. I have several Omnigrip as they seem to be what's available at Joann's when I need a particular size but I find them more difficult to read than the June Tailor.

I prefer Omnigrip/Omnigrid rulers as all of the others just confuse me. They come in many different sizes and shapes.
I've been using them since 1992.

I so agree. Once I found Creative Grids rulers, I switched over completely ruler by ruler. I find that I can see without distortion and cut more accurately. Love Creative Grids.

This is an interesting site for Creative Grids rulers.


Does anyone know when they became relatively easily available in the USA?

My favorite are Creative Grid. I have used them now for about 3-5 years and usually do not buy other brands, but of course when I go to quilt shows I always get suckered in with some new gotta have rulers!LOL

Ditto to this!

i bought skid grip dots from JoAnn's and put them in strategic areas on all my rulers. No more slippage, and best of all, just a couple bucks!

My favorites are still the Creative Grid rulers, especially since they have added better gripping. I have tried Olfas and Omnis and keep going back to the Creative Grids. I have a few other specialty rulers for other things.

I have one CG and have the same problem with it. I never use it and have all Omnigrips. But one could argue that the Omnigrip could be improved with narrower lines.
