How useful are the tri-rec rulers?
Are there very many patterns they can be use for?
If so, where could l find the patterns?

Thanx for all the help ~ Patti

I bought them...to me it was a waste of money. I had to buy it for a class I was taking.

i have had them for a few years now- don't use them all that often- but when the occassion arises- i am happy i have them-
when i first bought them i did not use them for probably the first 1-2 years- but then did--and then more and more. i have found that to be the case with lots of tools- some of them sit in a drawer for a long time- then suddenly their use becomes evident and they are used often.
as my skills improve and i try more and more techniques i am finding special rulers and tools do come in handy...some sit for a long time before that use comes to light though :thumbup:

I have had mine for about 8 years. Used them twice. they are very helpful when a pattern says they are needed but otherwise nope. :)
