Recently I had been out and about with my quilting things and when I went to the car managed to trip and break my two favorite rulers...yes, I am very clumsy.

After that explanation...have you found the new rulers (same brands, same markings) to not be as thick as the older ones?

The ones I broke were well over 10 years old.

I never thought of that, but think you may be right. It does seem like my rulers that burned up were thicker than the replacements. Same with the cutting mats!

I am a hand quilter. Recently I had to replace my favorite wood hoop. The new ones are so thin I broke 2 the same size already.

As a product demonstrator, I tell customers take note of 1-800- toll free on your product, where suggestion box call company, tell of your mishap, answer their questions, and chances are you might receive a ruler. It is only good customer relations to send you some free stuff, and believe me it works, I have obtained many extra products using this toll free, because companies stand by their product.
