patchwork and quilting tools

I’ve been looking at this “Gypsy Gripper” tool and saw on live at the Stitches and Craft show last week. It’ s the same tool that glass repair people use to lift panes of glass – a really good lock on suction handle. Someone had the wonderful idea of using them to hold your big (and little!) patchwork rulers steady while you use a rotary cutter.

So – did I pay approx $36 for the “official” patchwork version? NOPE!

I went to Aldi who had them on special this week for $10.

And it works BRILLIANTLY!!

If you’re only using a small ruler, you just flip one of the little levers down to hold onto that.

So – locals – they were at the Clifford Garden store, right down the back.
