As most of you know, I have an Amazon affiliate. That means if I put a link in a blog post and you follow it to Amazon and buy the item, Amazon pays me a tiny amount as a commission on the sale. You don’t pay more for the item. I also have a link in the right-hand column to Amazon. If you use that link to take you to Amazon, anything you buy from there are items that I get commission on as well.
I love it. I typically let the commission money accumulate and buy something that I wouldn’t otherwise afford…like last year I bought new scooters for the childcare kiddos.
Here is Georgie riding one of them.
I recently splurged and bought three new 7″ Morgan Hoops for cross stitch. Now I can have one in each project that I am working on and not have to find the hoop every time I want to switch projects.
All of that was bought with commission money Amazon gave to me from the commission on things that you have bought through my links. Thank you. I very much appreciate it.
With the program, I can see what was bought, but I can’t see who bought it. Recently as I was looking at the account, I saw that someone had bought this. I’m guessing they used the link on the right sidebar on the blog and bought this as I have not recommended this.
I ended up looking up the product and decided to give it a try. It is… a Magnetic Seam Guide.
I have two main machines so I bought it in a set that contained more than one. This was $12ish and included the magnets and the rulers.
I decided to try it out. To do that I put the needed through the hole at 1/4″.
You can see my foot is just a bit narrower than 1/4″. I’ve known that and have always “guesstimated” the line I need to be stitching at.
After the needle is in the 1/4″ hole, I pushed the magnet tight against the ruler. The magnet is SUPER strong and it’s hard to move it once in place.
You can see the small gap between the foot and the magnet. The magnet is at the actual seam allowance.
I gave it a try and really liked it.
Of course, it took running a few pieces through to really appreciate and get used to it, but now, I really like it.
From there I tried it out on my Singer 15-91. Typically I don’t piece a lot on this. Mostly just string and crumb piecing.
I did the same thing to get it in place.
I am really enjoying this seam guide. It’s just great.
I know some of you are curious so I’m including links to them in this post. HERE is the link to the ones I bought. There are other ways to buy so there are fewer magnets or without the ruler. You can check them out and see if there is a different one that meets your needs HERE.
I want to give a big shout-out to whoever bought this from Amazon through my link. I would have never known about it had you not done that. Now, I can enjoy it too. If there is a sewing gadget or gizmo that you use and love please mention it in the comments. I don’t get to classes or retreats and am often out of the loop. I’d love to learn about them!!
