Customer Reviews

Works FineI have actually used this quite a bit and it does what it says it will. There is just something about it I don't love. If I don't put my pins in my fabric in a way that takes running into this guide into consideration I'll have a problem on my hands, not a big one but irksome. I also find it fiddly, getting it positioned and then it can be knocked out of place. So until I find a better solution I'll continue to use it. But it's not ideal for me. 4Perfect for sewing curtains or drapes!This is a SUPER handy little item... I can get a perfectly straight seam and hemline without having to try! It clings right to my machine, so I can just move it over when I am not using it. I sew professionally, and this is really awesome, especially if I have to sew long stretches of hem on curtains or draperies. Makes it so much smoother to get a nice even stitch. Perfect for someone just starting out sewing - this guide makes it much easier to get a nice straight seamline! 5Flexible placement on the bobbin plate I ordered this magnetic seam guide for somewhat obvious reasons: to help me line up my fabrics better...especially when hemming.It only fits on my sewing machines--not on my serger or my coverstitch machine. The metal plates on those machines just isn't wide enough. I was hoping to use it on my coverstitch for the hems, but I love having it on my sewing machine.Basically, as you'll see in the video I made, you can place it just about anywhere on the bobbin plate...pretty far away from the needle and very close to the foot. You can also place it farther back from the needle or closer to you, depending on what you need. It's very flexible in terms of placement.The magnet is strong, so it doesn't shift or move, even if you gently knock it with your fingers.The design also makes it easy just to feed fabric right past it without the fabric getting snagged on any edges.Check out the video I made so you can get a better look at how the guide fits onto my bobbin plate and what it looks like closer up. 5Wish machines still came with these!I remember my mom's old Singer having a screw-in seam guide and most machines of the era seemed to come with one. For some reason, it doesn't seem like that's standard anymore.Anyhow, I was tired of uneven hem stitching and wanted something that would be inexpensive and work with my machine (fairly basic 8-year-old Kenmore). This one is just right.What I like is that the magnet is strong so it won't budge while sewing. Though strong, you can adjust it to another location, meaning it pulls up without trouble when you want to take it off or move it. It's also just the right size without taking up too much room.Overall, it's worth the small price to have peace of mind that my seams will be even and straight. I wish I'd bought one years ago. 5Not happy with thisNot happy with this. I thought this wasn t supposed to move while sewing to help guide, but even though it s magnetic, it slides. Waste of money. 1ExcellentThis magnetic seam guide grips extremely well and fit my need perfectly. However I very recently purchased another sewing machine, one that's computerized. One should not use anything magnetic in proximity to computerized machines. If I sell the older machine someone else will reap the benefits of this guide.Update July 2011: My new machine is the Brother CS6000i which has computerized stitch selection. It has a seam guide stamped into the throat plate but nothing that sticks up against which to guide the material. Without something like that I find it very difficult to maintain a straight seam. The following is a direct quote from the Brother-usa.com support page FAQ regarding my machine:You can use a magnet in the sewing area only.A magnetic should never be placed near the main board or the LCD screen.A strong magnet should never be used.I'm assuming that the Dritz magnetic seam guide will not be too strong; and now I have to buy another one. I hope this is helpful info.UPDATE 5/20/14: Since my original review the idea of seam guides has apparently come to the attention of sewing machine accessory manufacturers because there are a lot more of them to be found now. I was checking out on YouTube how to use some of the newer ones and came across a video titled "Using a Plastic Ruler as Seam Guide." Wow! Why didn't I think of that? This guy simply taped a clear ruler at the appropriate place on his machine. If you're interested you might like to see this video yourself at[...] 5Good idea, doesn't work that well for me.I was looking for a more elegant solution than masking tape with inked-on guidelines. While this gadget works as advertised and is useful for even edges, it not the brilliant solution I had envisioned. Torn and uneven edges don't work that well with it; my masking tape guides seem to work better for what I do. 3Super strong magnetWhen I first attached this to my machine, it pulled my plate right up. I guess I need to make sure it is screwed down very securely as when I did that, it did not move the plate. The magnet covers the entire bottom of the guide. I have not had a chance to use it yet but it seems like it will work good for my purpose. 4And then I saw that it wasn't recommended for computerized machinesI bought this without reading the comments, and so when it came, I opened it and stuck it to my machine's metal plate. It stuck. And then I saw that it wasn't recommended for computerized machines. I took it off (not that it wanted to unstick) because I'm paranoid when it comes to technology. However, it sticks like a champ, and I have no doubt that it will work great if I get the courage to try it. 4Strong magnetAfter reading some reviews I was surprised at how strong the magnet is. This will help me learn how to feed fabric straight, as my straight line came out a bit angled. When I used the tool that improved. It won't move untill you drag it off your machine.I am new to sewing, these are my first stitches and are in no way indicative of the tool's ability to line up your fabric to the guideline. 4
