Ruler Library

10 Inch Slicer

Ruler Library: Need a ruler to tackle a new project? Our ruler library has information about how members may use a guild ruler. The Guild has an inventory of rulers that you can borrow. Click here to view and/or print the ruler library inventory.

In-person browsing just isn’t possible. Please use our online ruler catalog to find the ruler you’re interested in and reserve it by emailing the number and name of the ruler to the Librarian, Rosie Graham,  The librarian then will bring it to the next guild meeting or arrange for pickup.

The catalog will be updated monthly to show new acquisitions as well as changes in availability.

The guild is grateful to the family of Dottie Macomber, a long-time, very active member of the guild, for donating her rulers to begin the ruler library in December 2022.
