    June, anyone who could give them the name of it got 30% off one item in the store. If you bought fabric, it was up to a 4 yard cut. I've wanted this ruler for a long time, but promised myself I wouldn't buy it unless I could get it on sale! This was my lucky day because of all of you!

    I think it is a tea bag holder to remove the teabag out of the cup.

    It looks like it would hold a serge thread spool. At least I would try it. Maybe it would suck down to a table top.
    Now I will have to find one.

    Hi Grandma Mary, I think I may know what this is !! Years ago I had a sewing machine that had design disks that you changed out. This was precomputerized machines. They worked. The design on the knob part was the design it sewed. Good Luck !!

    To me it looks like a wax block to run your thread through for hand quilting.

    Would you believe I got one of these as a giveaway from a realty company at a local home show just a few months ago. LOL No description to what it was far, just stuck in a giveaway bag. Now I know.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    I never would have guessed it was for a tea bag. Neat idea and fun game. Thanks for letting us play.

    I love all the ideas here! So many creative minds coming up with all these potential uses for this little gizmo! The real use looks really handy, too. And you got a great ruler!! I have two in that size (different brand), and I use those two rulers more than all my other rulers put together.

    DH & I play a similar guessing game in thrift shops, trying to figure out what weird things are and making silly things up to make each other laugh if we can't figure it out. Sometimes people overhear us and will inform us what the thing really is, and that can be really funny too, especially if the other person thinks we're seriously believing our silly ideas.

    I want to get one of those for my husband - he's broken two tiny glass bowls so far, as he puts his tea bag in at the end of the island, and than later comes by and accidentally knocks them off. I only have one left and told him "HANDS OFF" so he's using a plastic food container now.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I just bought one of these - or it looked exactly like it - for my girlfriend's birthday. Got it at Bed, Bath and Beyond. You put it on top of your tea cup to keep your tea warm. The string from the tea bag goes thru the "slot" on top. AND you can put the tea bag on the bottom side and squeeze it to get the tea out.

    This would make a great gift for my coworker!!! She loves tea! Thanks for asking the question. 😃
    Is there such a thing as too much fabric?

    It might be a tea bag holder but if I had one I think I could find a couple other things to use it for in the sewing room. It looks like it would be great for conditioning thread for hand sewing/quilting. Or as a base for a thread cone behind the machine. Or ?????

    it looks like the tea bag lid I have. Mine is a silicon the string of the tea bag goes through the slit in the side and along the top, then you set the flat part on you cup or mug to keep the heat in. When you tea is steeped you have the string ti take it out and can give it a squeeze with the flat part,

    The otherside of the dome must be a hole. If a bobbin went in there and the thread as Tartan says it is to keep both together? The slit could be to put ends through to prevent them getting every where.

    It appears to me to be a thread cutter. I'm seeing a tiny dark spot on the bottom slit that could be a tiny blade. Anyone else notice it??

    I have one and use it all the time. It's flexible so you can squeeze the tea bag. You can keep the tea bag inside it and use it again. It is a wonderful invention!
    SEW MUCH FUN!
