Mine broke in half, and I'd love to order a new one to replace, but don't know which online stores might have this.

I purchased mine years ago during the days of privately owned fabric stores that stocked dress fabrics, and sewing machines/sergers.

I have never heard of a Fashionetics Fashion ruler. Is this, by any chance, the same thing as a French Curve ruler?

I did some checking on the internet and found nothing also. Perhaps if you post a picture someone will recognize it under another name.

I also checked the internet and it does not come up. Since this was, as you say, purchased quite awhile ago it may be considered a "vintage notion" You can try and query it as a vintage notion and see if you can come up with it on line. But I'm with the other ladies, I think you may be talking about a dressmakers curve.

Debbie has found it. I also did some research and found out it's called the Styling Design ruler. It's 12.95 and #SDR2 at Nancy's Notions. I have seen it from 11.00 and up, but just can't justify shipping, but my packaging from mine shows how to use it and it's a really great tool. It is a 4 in one ruler.

I don't have a free shipping coupon, and it would cost me 18.00 plus change to get it. Mine was marked at $6.50 when I orginally purchased it.

Greenberg and Hammer carries it, Jo Ann's online carries it. Fashionetics has a website, but there is nothing on it. They say visit in a few days. I wrote to Clotilde when I was searching and gave her the address I had on my ruler package.

Fashionetics Inc.
Box 146
Armonk NY 10504

Thank you everyone for looking around. I'm not too well versed on all of the internet stores.

I've seen it on the notions wall at Jo-Ann's. You might want to try your local store.

I've looked at the local store, but will keep looking. We do have a few more Jo Ann's, I can drive over to those also. Thanks. I am glad the rulers are still around.

How did you break a metal ruler in half? Or was it one of those plastic kind? I'd be sure to get a metal one next time.

It's plastic. It was old, so I'm sure it was brittle. It made these creaking sounds anyway. I had it on my bed and a little 9yo boy threw himself on the bed, behind first, and didn't know it would be under him.

I just hugged and kissed him, and told him to scoot, and thought at the time, I could just get another one.

Thanks Leslie, I think I'll get out and about and check out some surrounding JA's.
