I just got one of those Strip-tube rulers with the book that goes with it. Would something like that work?

This is the book and this is the ruler that goes with it

I have a small folding ironing table that I put right next to my machine, and I love. I got it as a $15 grab gift at last year's Quilt Guild pot luck, and it is wonderful. This one is really expensive, but you might try doing a search or visiting your local quilt shop, or even making one yourself.

If she has a lot of rulers, does she have a ruler stand? DH made one for me, and I actually gave one at last year's Quilt Guild pot luck.

I just picked up an Ott light for $20 at the Joann Fabric sale so that I can have it for when I go to classes and next to my machine. Something like that might work as well.

I'm sure others will have ideas.
