Now that I have your attention – we mean support for your favorite Creative Grids ruler, of course!
Did you know that we now print an Microsoft Tag on each ruler so you can scan it with your iPhone to watch a video demonstrating how to use the ruler? If you don’t have an iPhone, visit the Creative Grids website at: http://www.creativegridsusa.com/ to view the videos. You can also print instructions for any ruler and see quilts made with them.
If you would like to view a video of the Circle Savvy ruler, for instance, watch: watch?v=itnXgid6OWI&feature=share&list=UUKMNSZXVpy0NfAyYdUSuHhQ
You are also welcome to share images and videos on this site (and the Checker site) in your newsletter, Facebook postings, Tweets, etc. In fact, did you know that you can share or use these newsletter posts as well?
