Original Gypsy Gripper
Sometimes it can be a real challenge to hold your plastic ruler in just
the right spot while cutting fabric. And if you happen to slip with the
blade, you could end up cutting yourself. Ouch! That's gonna leave a
mark! But now, there is a great new way to hold your rulers in place,
and it makes using them easier and safer than ever before. Available
exclusively from The Gypsy Quilter and our authorized dealers and dis-
tributors, it's The Gypsy Gripper. And it's a must-have tool for quilting.
The Gypsy Gripper has a comfortable grip handle, and two large round
suction cups with handy lock & release levers. Just press the suction
cups to any plastic ruler with a smooth solid surface, and then flip the
levers to lock The Gypsy Gripper in place. Now you can move the ruler
quickly, and easily hold it on the exact position with gentle downward
pressure. Your ruler hand will be up and away from the fabric, and out
of harm's way if you slip with the cutter. When you need to switch to
another ruler, just flip the locking levers to release The Gypsy Gripper.
Both ends attached to a long ruler.

The Gypsy Gripper weighs just eight ounces, so moving it around won't
wear you down. The overall size is about 3-1/2" wide by 11-3/8" long
by 3-1/8" high (sitting on its cups). The durable plastic body is water-
proof and washable, it will look good and work well for lots of projects.
One end attached to a triangle ruler.
The Gypsy Gripper's suction cups will work with smooth surface rulers
that are at least 4" wide, including most rectangle, square, or triangle
shapes (with no slots or holes in the areas that will be covered by the
suction cups). Use it with just one end attached on square or triangle
rulers and it still grips perfectly, you can let the other end rest on the
table while you hold in place and cut. Finger guides and a rubberized
grip pad in its sculptured handle help make The Gypsy Gripper easy to
position, and comfortable to hold, even during the longest cutting ses-
sions. The handle that travels from ruler to ruler, The Gypsy Gripper is
a quilter's dream come true! Make it yours for the price of a good ruler.
You will be truly stunned by the dramatic difference The Gypsy Gripper
makes when using your rulers to cut fabric, and you really will wonder
how you ever got along without it. You probably want to get a couple
of extras to have around whenever your quilting buddies come to visit
(otherwise, you might not be able to use yours again until they leave).

Okay, so now you are thinking how wonderful it would be if there were
also some way to position all of those little templates you use. Some

And with the smaller sizes, there's an even greater risk of cutting your
fingers. Not to worry, we hear you, and we've got the solution for you.
