    Does anyone know what this is?

    My LQS is offering a discount in honor of St. Patrick's Day if we can name this item...exact name. There's a ruler I've been wanting to buy for a long time!
    I've searched all over the Internet and can't find anything. I'm assuming it's sewing related, but maybe not? I know that someone on this wonderful board will be able to help! Thanks ahead of time for your help!

    No idea but I am assuming it is sewing related. If the little knob fits a spool of thread, you could put it on top of the spool, thread your needle up through the slit and snap the needle into the slit on top top?

    I would guess the same thing as Tartan.

    Tartan, that's what I was thinking too. I've googled everything I can think of but no luck. My LQS is always a lot of fun, and who knows what trick they have up their sleeve for St. Pat's day? The offer is only good for today, so I might have to wait for my ruler! Especially when I have to have the exact name!!!!

    No idea here. What Tartan said makes sense.

    I think it is a spool thread saver also. Looks like you can pull thread up through the slit and hold it in the grove on top. Put since the fabric weave looks so large maybe a bobbin keeper.

    I tho't of laying a 'self threading' needle in the slot on top and bringing the thread up, across the slot and popping into the needle eye? I hope you get your ruler!

    WOW! This is what they do on a PBS show called Ask This Old House. Very seldom could I guess what it was. It has to be something sewing related. Good Luck. Be sure to check the photos when you Google the name of this item.

    Is is something that grips a ruler? I have a bowl lid out of a similar looking material and it grips great.

    I think Google has something called Google Images and you can post the picture on it and some of the time it can tell what an item is. Hope you find out so you can get your ruler.

    I have no idea of what the size is! I think it's small because the grain in the fabric under it is so large.

    cjr...THANK YOU SO MUCH! I ran right out to my LQS and bought my ruler! Here it is! I bought a creative grids 6 1/2" x 24" ruler for 30% off! I have wanted one for months! My 6" x24" ruler is great but I had so many patterns that call for 6 1/2" blocks, I was always borrowing from my friends! I knew my quilting friends would come to my rescue! You are all the best. Isn't it nice to have so many people around the world that are your friends?
