My very favorite tool ever!
 
Nobody ever talks about this tool and it's my favorite ever and I don't ever see anyone talking about it. A few months ago I bought a second one for the Secret Santa. I was so excited to give this to whoever I was lined up with, but I was too late to join. So, I gave it to my good, good friend here on the Board. She has written me quite a few times and thanked me for it, saying how she doesn't know how she got by without it.

It's the Gypsy Cutting Gismo. It's for chain sewing. And if you chain sew, you will love this thing so much. It takes so much time off of chain sewing. You can find it many places. I'm showing you one place that has a picture of what it actually does. You can find them cheaper. Here's the picture: http://www.cozyquilt.com/Aspx/Produc...productID=1583.

Please, give it a shot. They are wonderful!! It's my best friend when I'm chain sewing. I put it to the left of my sewing machine and use it right when I'm done chain sewing, then head to the ironing board. Anyone else have one and agree?:thumbup:

Looks like it would be a timesaver.

Ooh! Never seen this before - looks as if it would save quite a bit of time. Thanks. *Googling to see if there is a UK stockist*

First time I've seen that. I just use the cutter that is built into my machine. IT works the same way.

Fons and Porter has something similar to this. It holds a seam ripper so you could rip seams without holding the ripper and use it to snip chain sewing threads. It is very useful.

Does it really stay standing? Is there something that grips to the table? Looks like the downward movement would knock it over!

I have one and love it. It does stay pretty steady. i found the best price for it was at WalMart, of all places.

I just got this a few weeks ago and I love it! Really is a time saver. I was using the auto thread cutter on my machinery this is so much better for me as my pieces were always falling to the back of my table.

Looks like it would really save time.

I have one and love it too! Yes, it's steady and the best part is it takes just a regular old blade to refill.
