Notchers

I absolutely love my pattern notcher…picked it up in NYC’s fashion district.  Not only do I use it for notching my patterns, but I also notch my FABRIC!!!  No more cutting little triangles…LOL

Living in suburban Staten Island (one of the 5 boroughs of NYC) is like having the best of both worlds…it’s only a 20 minute drive into “the city” (aka Manhattan).
