Make your ruler no-slip
"I am about to bust with joy at the new item I found! This is a strip that you add to your ruler to make it no-slip. I can't believe how good it works. Even on my 6 x 24 ruler. ...It is called Grip Strips and boy does it ever work good!!
... There is no more walking your hand as you cut!
I am telling all the ladies that I quilt with. I showed it to a lady that works at the store where we all meet and quilt and she was immediatly impressed. I even talked to a complete stranger about them...
Oh, by the way, they are clear so they don't hinder your reading of the ruler and they peel right off if you need to move them. Boy, did I ever get wound up, but I am just so impressed I had to share. Read the entire comments."

"...just a note on your Grip Strips. At last you have given us a tool that honest to goodness works to keep our rulers from slipping. I was a little bit dubious when I ordered one but as you can see I ordered 4 of them today. It is more than worthwhile. One of them is going to my daughter but the Mama gets the other 3. Thanks so very much and I should've known they would work because I have your rulers and I am swinging on a star now. I had an auto accident a couple of years ago and it left me with only one leg. It has been very difficult to cut a piece of fabric But NO More. Can't thank you enough."

"Grip strips...help on ALL rulers, and are a godsend on square rulers where precision is everything. ... Also, since they raise the ruler slightly, you can
easily work them over bulky seams that need to be cut...”

"Your Grip Strips are amazing. I saw your ad, ordered a pack, tried them one time and ordered more. I have Grip Stripped every ruler I own.
I worked in a fabric store and have tried every product I could fine to keep my rulers from slipping. Nothing worked until I found Grip Strips! I have told friends they had to get some – and they love them.
Then my husband needed to hand cut some vinyl for a decal business we own, so I gave him my ruler with Grip Strips. He was amazed. He discovered the ruler worked on the truck he was lettering. I think he is going to try and steal my rulers!
I will be ordering Grip Strips for his rulers soon. These truly are the best thing that has happened to the quilting world in years."

"When visiting Houston Intl Quilt Festival in November, I purchased some of the Grip Strips and they are everything you state they are.. Absolutely awesome to have rulers that don't wander when cutting. Great product!"

"The Grip Strips have changed my quilting life! Don't know how I did without them. Am working on doing all my rulers with them. Thank you so much."
