Product Information
Lori Holt designed her Seams Sew Easy for an accurate 1/4" seam and for constructing easy corner triangles. This tool saves time by not having to mark lines on your fabric when sewing half square triangles, flying geese or snowballs. The center circle of the guide is also marked with 1/2" grid lines for a wider seam allowance. These grid lines also help to ensure correct placement when adhering to your sewing machine bed. This seam guide also includes a strip of temporary adhesive dots to affix the guide to the bed of your sewing machine.

Needs major improvement Review by Ansje

The idea behind this product is good; however, it has many flaws.
My item did not come with any adhesive dots, so I have to use tape. The center square is difficult to cut out, and you are left with ragged edges. I wonder why the square was not stamped out to begin with.....
The little square has to be kept, and is easily lost or vacuumed up.
The main issue is that the plastic piece has to be removed each time the bobbin needs to be changed.
This is a big pain, as the little square has to be located in order to reattach the plastic piece correctly.

Seam Guide review Review by Michele

Does not fit properly on my machine (adhese). My machine's bed is too small without an extension table. It is difficult to cut out even with sharp small blades, but not really difficult to fit had it been smaller or had I the extension table.

not so easy Review by Sarah

If this notion can be placed perfectly, it's a great design. The major design flaw is that it's difficult to place and pretty much needs to be eye-balled. The little piece of plastic is difficult to cut out, must be saved somewhere, doesn't lock back into place, and doesn't hold steady when I try to put the guide back on my machine after having it off. I could probably just as easily measure and use painters tape on my machine.

Sew Easy Seam Guide Review by Patricia

This seam guide does perform well once you get it attached to the machine. Unfortunately it has a few drawbacks that are a problem.
It comes with double sided adhesive dots that measure 1 inch (2.5mm) in diameter. The large size assures that your guide will not slip while you are sewing, but it also assures that the dots cover the throat plate on the machine. This means you have to remove the dots to clean lint on a regular basis which is necessary to keep the machine functioning properly. (I may try to cut the dots into a smaller size and put 2 smaller dots outside the throat plate instead. Or perhaps a roll of double sided tape from the office supply store?)
Next problem is that it is quite difficult to cut out the little square in the center because the plastic is so thick. (The plastic extends out nicely from the arm of the machine if positioned correctly, so I assume that's why thick plastic was used.) I used an Xacto knife to cut out the center square, but even with that, the edges were left quite jagged. When I started piecing on this ragged surface, the rough surface caught the fabric as it moved through. For this, I raided my husband's stash of sandpaper. This smoothed the edges so that the fabric fed well...but it also rubbed off the lines that were printed around the opening. The lines further out were not affected, of course, so it is still somewhat usable.
Since the plastic is so thick, I think it would have been easier if the manufacturer had machine stamped out the center plastic square, providing the same product in two pieces, like a jigsaw puzzle. It would have fit nicely for positioning, it would have had smooth edges, and it would not have lost the lines around the opening.
The bottom line is that this item works well once you rig it, but I'm not sure it's worth the hassle of getting there.
