Labeling rulers

I tie a piece of red thread thru the hole in the ruler. It doesn't make a mark in my ruler, it doesn't get in the way of cutting or measuring, and if for some reason I cut the thread, I always have more thread lying around.

I use a clear cartridge in my label maker and my last name in all caps. Also, I don't lend my rulers to just anybody anymore.

I write my name on the edge of the ruler - not on the top or bottom but the part in-between.

I don’t take my rulers any place so the only place they’ll get lost st is in my new sewing room

Since I joined a new guild, I haven't had any items go missing at retreats or classes. Whole different class of people and it shows.
