I even used it at Christmas for my gift wrapping.
I highly recommend this notion added to your sewing kit.
I have a couple of problems:
--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.
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)
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.

nifty little tool. not as easy to use as I thought it would be. it is difficult to press the button to slide the measurement down. I'm worried if I push to much it will break.Published 13 days ago by K.Stanford
Its much better than the metal gauge I've used for a long time. I love how the slider has a push button, so it doesn't move around so easily. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Cindy Pridgen
Nice, larger than the older style seam gauges. The slide could be tighter - it moves a bit too easily, so I took off a star.Published 28 days ago by C. Barnett
