New Stuff!  At Common Thread we are pleased to offer QuiltersSelect rulers and mats.  These products are created by nationally known quilter, Alex Anderson, and are sold only in quilt shops.  The mats are double sided, light on one side and dark on the other, and the numbering is right to left AND left to right.  The rulers have a non-skid finish that you have to see to believe.  NO more sliding rulers when you cut!  The unique finish makes it easy to see all colors of fabrics and even vinyl and the numbering is right to left AND left to right.
