glo tapeHere’s a tip recommended by the ladies here at the shop.

Have you ever had to cut lots of pieces of fabric for your project that are an unusual width; like 2 3/8″ for instance? Sometimes it can be confusing to to keep track of that 2 3/8″ line marking on your ruler as you cut the required pieces. What a pain it can be to count the marks on your ruler each time you are ready to make a cut. Mistakes happen easily without the onslaught of distractions coming at us constantly or perhaps you can’t complete all your cutting in one session, but instead over several days for instance.

Well… here’s a quick product that will make it easy to identify where your ruler marking is for that pesky 2 3/8″ that you may have to cut a lot of for your project. Omnigrid has a product called “Glow-Line Tape” which is easy to use. The package includes three colours (pink, orange and yellow) to select from and when you are finished using it, the tape comes right off because it is not uber sticky which means no residue on your ruler. Each roll of tape in the pack is 1/4in x 7yds. Total package contains 21yds of tape. You can use Glow-Line either underneath or on top of Invisi-Grip. Select the colour you prefer and apply tape over the desired marking on the back of the ruler, then trim even with the ruler’s edge. When cutting strips, automatically look for the highlighted line or area, preventing the common mistake of cutting the wrong size. Voila!
