APQS RulerMate

Extended Base Plate


Available for the Millennium, Ultimate 1, Freedom, Discovery, Liberty

(Everything except the Ultimate 2)



To install, simply replace your existing needle plate with the RulerMate.  (You could actually consider this an extended needle plate.)  

  • Extended plate width providing maximum support for your acrylic guides and rulers (but not too wide, so you can still park your machine).

  • Consistent, centered, firm surface on all sides of the needle allowing you to place your rulers either in front or behind the needle.  

  • Beveled edges eliminates the bump when the extended base plate hits the Velcro clamps on the side edges of the quilt. The RulerMates beveled edge has more bevel than anything else on the market, ensuring that the clamps will hit on the middle of the beveled slope so you won't even notice when it hits the clamps. 

  • Lightweight anodized aluminum provides a smooth, firm surface that will last a lifetime. The anodizing process seals the aluminum so it will never leave marks on your quilt.

  • Unobstructed view and access to the bobbin area. 


Because of the extremely beveled edges, the RulerMate will pass under the Velcro spring clamps without affecting your stitching.
