    New tool I bought at the Sew Expo yesterday

    I found this at the Puyallup, WA Sew Expo yesterday. Haven't used it yet but tried it there and it seems to be very helpful with the cutting rulers slipping when you cut. The inventor was demonstrating it and I like it! Here's the web address to check it out. I bought the 24" size.

    Looks really interesting. Please let us know what you think after you have had a chance to try it. I don't like to waste $, but if it makes the job easier & faster, I'm all for that.

    I started a thread about this a while back. I bought mine at a quilt show. It works great. Hope you like it when you get a chance to use it.

    Great idea. I love new quilting products. I don't mind if I use it one time or a hundred. When I need it, it's mine.
    Got fabric?

    I was at a show recently in CA and saw a couple of inventions for keeping rulers stable as you cut. Both were actual full ruler assemblies, not a tool to assist a ruler you already have like you found. I'm going to keep my eye out for this, I would rather invest in a tool to assist me rather than new rulers.
    Thought for EVERY Day: You know all those things you've always wanted to do? You should go do them.

    I started using an 8 pound weight to weigh down my rulers and it's the best thing I've ever done. It's a cylinder about 3" across and 5" high. Keeps the ruler nice and steady.

    It will be nice when they get the video up to demonstrate how it is used. I'm a gadget-holic love them.

    This looks like a winner. Best one I have seen - hope we get them soon as the other gadgets are less than suitable.

    I you have an old flat iron that will work to keep the ruler from slipping. My grandmother use it use several flatirons to hold her dress patterns in place while she cut them out. A metal bacon press will work too. I painted some flat irons different bright colors and use them a lot in my sewing and pressing.
    Got fabric?
