Money well spent I bought this a couple of months ago when I decided that I wanted to take sewing from simple mending to actual creations. Since then, I have recommended it to a friend and bought another one as a gift. This little gadget has saved me from buying 4 separate gadgets (5 if I ever need a compass). Its construction is sturdier than the alternative at my local sewing store and it is incredibly easy to use. I had to add hem allowances to a project that was 39″x78″ and this made it very easy and much quicker than I had anticipated; I never had to readjust the guides back into position because it has a lock mechanism where you have to purposefully press down a release button in order to move the guide to a new measurement. I love that it has two rulers – the static one on top and the adjustable just below which allowed me to ensure straight markings at all times and, in the case of a buttonhole, 2 markings at once. I used the button hole feature for marking the size and position where…

Very Nice Gauge If You Can Afford It I bought this gauge a few years ago for about $15. It has a very nice feel in the hand, compared to the cheap metal versions and at times the wider-than-usual guide at the top is helpful. (Sometimes it’s easier to have a narrow guide, however, for example, on small curves.)I have a couple of problems:–I believe the lowest measurement is 1/4″. I frequently need to measure 1/8″, sometimes less.–I don’t use it for anything but measuring seam allowances. I lost the original information card, and I haven’t been able to find any information on the web explaining the other uses. To use it for other than the main function is not intuitive. I would probably never use the compass function. I have a compass and there are many low-tech ways of making a compass involving, a pencil, a string, and a pin.So for me, it’s basically a fancy, expensive seam gauge. I don’t mind having it, but a $3 clear plastic ruler with lines can be just as…

It Looks Nice, but… there are warnings that it might break if I do such and such with it. In a sewing room it’s going to see some action, I cannot be “careful” with it for fear of breakage. The plastic is flimsy, and is even worse because it, as most sewing gauges are, is split down the middle. It is rather pricey given the durability.It will be good for making circles as it has a hole in the one end for a pin and different markings along the edge for various sized circles, but I don’t do that often. For now I’ll stick with my metal gauge.(this is NOT a kitchen item, really should be in crafts or hobbies)
