    What is the thingie called that makes it so easy to turn your fabric right side out.

    I saw a demonstration somewhere online about a gadget that makes it a breeze to turn long skinny tubes of fabric inside out. It was like a long piece of metal. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I really need one asap. Thanks!

    Mine is called a Loop Turner and some people call them Tube Turner. It really does make it a lot easier to turn fabric inside out.

    Maybe you are thinking of the fasturn which consists of different sizes of aluminum pipes and a wire hook. It is a set and will turn different sizes of fabric tube. Try www.fasturn.net or google it.

    I use a medical tool like big, long, thin scissors that clamp. Hemostats I think they are called. They use them to clamp off blood vessels during operations! There are brilliant and are available in some of our quilt shops in UK

    I use a Bodkin.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I have one of these and use it all the time when I need to turn a small fabric tubes. Works like a charm.

    I have the ones that use a small plastic tube and a piece of wire or wood like a chopstick. I love mine. Got it an JoAnns, three sizes in the set.

    They sell them at a quilt shop just outside of Jacksonville, Oregon.... Can't remember the name of the thing or the shop, but the shops in a commercial type building on the south highway to Medford.
