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 ribbon would come out of a gift bag. I simply placed the ribbon over the gauge and moved the ruler up to the bottom of the ribbon and took that to the fabric to make my markings. Once again, since it locks in place, it was very easy to make repetitive markings for various gifts bags without concern remeasuring. The narrow spacing in the middle allowed me to mark a straight line in the center to guide me between the ends of my button hole.

I even used it at Christmas for my gift wrapping.

I highly recommend this notion added to your sewing kit.

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 effective, and sometimes more, because the ruler can be laid on fabric that moves. This product sometimes pushes up the edges of pieces I'm working on.

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)

I debated about purchasing this because I have many other little sliding rulers. I went ahead and purchased this and it really is different. It "locks" into place - no more sliding up and down when you are trying to measure. And the crossbar is much longer - this also is great for many things. Wish I had had this 40 years ago. Great little tool.

Let me start by saying that I will write about what I know. My sewing skills are squarely at the beginning level, so I haven't used all of the features yet. I will add to this review as I use the product more.

The product is really well made. I like the durable plastic better than the flimsy metal. It has a nice weight and feels good in your hand.

First, even if you only use it as a sewing gauge for marking seam allowances, it's worth it. It's so much larger than the traditional sewing gauges. You really save a little time by using it. Using it as a hem gauge is a no-brainer. It took me a couple of minutes to figure out the markings, but I haven't picked up my old sewing gauge since.

I'll be making a shirt soon, so I'll let you know how the buttonhole spacing and marking work.

The one function I rarely see myself using is the circle compass. I don't quilt, so I found the instructions confusing.

The Clover 5 In 1 Sliding Gauge was somewhat disappointing to me. Mainly it was smaller than I pictured it, and kind of flimsy. I already have a couple older gauges that work for small seams, but wanted something for measuring larger quilt borders. This product didn't work for that; and it was pretty pricey also. I donated it to my quilt guild for their next boutique!

This is a pretty cool sewing gadget with a lot of different functions. My only complaint is that it is also VERY flimsy. Most sewing gauges are made of metal, but this one is made of pretty thin plastic, and I doubt that it will last very long. Ultimately, I would probably trade the extra features for something that can stand up to more wear and tear.
