    Oh that's weird. I thought I linked directly to the product, but it doesn't, and there doesn't seem to be a way to do it. Let me see if I can find it somewhere else.

    The product is "Invisigrip." I'll look for a link on a different page.

    http://www.softexpressions.com/softw...InvisiGrip.php
    I use the sandpaper dots there down about halfway on the page.
    And . . . I changed the link above too.

    Yes, I've used it
    No, I don't like it

    I get a better grip with sandpaper dots.

    I have used the little dots and they have worked very well. Don't know if it was that brand.

    Yes, I have used it and I like it. I HATE those little sandpaper dots becasue I find it hard to "scootch" the fabric a tiny bit when you need to, but with this product, it holds the fabric when you cut, but you can move the fabric a bit if you need to.

    I have used this product on my rulers. Works great. Another product that works well on rulers and has MANY other uses is Hugo's Amazing Tape. I think Soft Expressions carries that too. I use this tape to keep my embroidery spools from unwinding when not in use. It's amazing.

    I've seen them at JoAnn, but you can probably find them online by doing a search for sandpaper dots.

    I too have it on all of my rulers and really like it! I am sure you wouldn't be disappointed if you buy it! It really helps me to keep my ruler straight when I am cutting!

    My LQS and Quilt Club both have demonstrated it and I now have it on all my rulers. I still catch myself using my "pinkie" to help hold it straight.

    Yep, I have used Invisigrip on most of my rulers and it helped.

    Now The Grace Company has come out with a much better product ... look at their website. It is with their new rotary cutting system items.

    Would love the new rotary cutter and ruler but not just yet. The little 'grippers' are affordable though. A quilting friend who also has arthritis loves these as they keep her more pain free when cutting.

    I use it on my long rulers. I haven't tried it on the smaller ones, but I have enough left to try it on them. I like it.

    I use it but only have it on some rulers. I always reach for the rulers that have it on too! I love it!

    Hey, I didn't even know it existed! Looks like something I could really use since my rulers seem always to slip. Thanks everyone who has commented, you've helped me decide to get the stuff. I need all the help I can get :-)

    Same here. But if you need something and no invisigrip on hand, a piece of saran wrap or a plastic wrap that clings will work for a little while.

    I have used some of this and I found it was not a help. Perhaps it was the person using it and not the product. Not sure

    I have it on my rulers, yes it helps, but some times my ruler still slips...maybe I'm pressing too hard on the ruler... :thumbdown:

    Are you referring to True Cut True Grips?
