Westalee Rulers, Sew Steady Tables and Special Domestic Quilting Classes

 At Tangled Threads Quilt Shop we are excited to sell Westalee Rulers, Westalee’s special “Free Motion Foot”, and the Sew Steady sewing machine tables which are used in conjunction with the Westalee rulers.  These products make it possible for the home quilter to have control of her quilt from beginning to end on her own domestic machine.

Curious?  We have a Westalee demonstration station set up in the shop. Stop by and check out the rulers, Sew-Steady table and ask for a demo!

A little about our Westalee Instructor Pat Fahey

Pat has been in the industrial sewing industry for her entire adult life.  She worked as a seamstress with wedding gowns and specialty sewing and also as a production seamstress, and was production manager for a local company that manufactured textile products for emergency services personnel.

Quilting has been her passion for 10 to 15 years. Pat started with a ruler set similar to Westalee and played with them for about 8 years.  Then she found Westalee Rulers and has not looked back since.   Pat enjoys teaching her students how to properly use the rulers, but in addition she integrates free motion quilting to accent the Westalee Rulers. She loves helping her students figure out a unique design and obtain the results they will be happy with.  Her excitement is so stimulating and passionate that we cannot help but be motivated to succeed! We are thrilled to have her as an instructor at Tangled Threads.
