After googling some of these things I can see a Gypsy Cutter in my future.

1)The Purple Thang
2) Gypsy Cutting Gyzmo (also puple)
3) stiletto

Those are my top three MUST have.

I recently purchased Bloc Loc HST rulers which came in extremely handy for BH's mystery quilt! I am so glad I made the investment. I don't have a Stiletto but use whatever is handy around my sewing space... but I think that will be my next investment.

I have also recently purchased an Add a Quarter ruler and plan to make friends with it when I begin paper piecing.

Love my stilettos!!! Have one/two beside every machine, can't sew without it. I have some that I made my self, beads and turkey skewers, and even a hill billy one, made with a tiny corn cob.

I forgot about Wonder Clips. I use those instead of pins to hold seams together when sewing. I don't have to remove them so the seam stays right in place. About the only place I use pins is when I need them for my design wall.

My favorites would be my Grab a roo gloves, Hedgehog bobbin holder, June Taylor strip cutter, seam fix, and silly as it sounds my ergonomic chair.

Hopefully someone will answer this. All I could find was a Big Look Platform and I do not think that is what I am looking for. If it is, I don't need it. Help!!!
