Julie when I first looked at it for a second, that was my thought too. I went to Nancy's notions and curvemaster on sale....thinking about getting one...but the thigh master would do me more good lol

Wonder if you could use the thighmaster while sewing with the curvemaster...OMG I would be ready for playboy shoot ROFL NOT

at this point maybe i'd have more luck using the curvemaster trying to get my thighs to fit than i'm having trying to get the pieces to fit. LOL!

I have one and I really like it. Have watched the tutorial? You can see the video at the link below.
You can't practice sewing a straight line you have to practice sewing curves. http://www.quilterstv.com/

it's a specialty foot made especially for sewing curved pieces (i.e. drunkard's path) to one another. by holding the fabric correctly, the foot does the work of gathering in the convex layer to fit the concave layer without using pins or having to snip.
You still have to snip after you've sewn the pieces together. I have one of these and could never get it to work. I'm trying to sell mine if anybody is interested.

The SatinEdge foot sews curves. I think the Curvemaster was adapted from the SatinEdge foot.

BB,
i looked for it on youtube and couldn't find it. what did you look it up under?
i saw other methods that work the same way though, and i think i could have saved some money.

auntluc, I think your link is an exact description of how it should be done.....but the doing of it, isn't always as easy as it sounds, is it?
