SimFlex Expanding Sewing Gauge

The SimFlex Expanding Sewing Gauge gives you fast and accurate measuring.  It is quick and easy to use.



At first glance, you’d think it might only be for measuring button/button hole spacing.  While it is PERFECT for measuring accurace spaces for buttons and buttonholes, it has many other uses.

The SimFlex Expanding Sewing Gauge is great for use in shirring and smocking.  Simply flex the gauge to the distance desired between the gathers when shirring or smocking, mark the sewing lines with chalk or washable marker.

This sewing gauge can also be used for measuring pleats, tucks and gathers in draperies and skirt and dress pleats. 

For the quilters, this gauge can be used to mark several bias or straight strips at a time.

This sewing tool costs around $18.00 and I bought it online.  You might check with JoAnn’s or other fabric/notion stores to see if it is available there also.

I would highly recommend this tool.  The time saved by getting instant and accurate measuring distances for such a variety of applications makes it well worth the money spent on it.
