The super-sized sliding gauge is as easy to use as the original gauge. Use it for sewing, quilting, home décor, and long-arm quilting projects. The slide locks into place allowing you to accurately mark projects.

Make Perfect Circles

Use the eye at the end of the gauge to mark the center of a circle.

  • Lay fabric on a cardboard, foamboard, or pressing surface.
  • Add a push pin to the eye to anchor the center.
  • Slide the gauge to the desired circle’s radius.
