Meet the sewing gauge! Some sewists say that the sewing gauge is one of their favorite tools.  Taking quick consistent measurements is a necessary part of many sewing projects, and the sewing gauge is up for the task. Its got a sliding marker that can be moved and will stay in place for repeated marking. You’ll be surprised at all the ways you’ll use this guy!
