What is this notion used for? Cutting any straight angles, piecing. Did you get your money's worth after the purchase? I loved the large slidelock so much that I bought the smaller one a short time later. The 14-inch version sells for $35. I can swiftly cut blocks much faster than using a only a ruler and I don't worry about slipping.

Is this notion easily available? Only from the Slidelock website.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes, the slidelock has changed my experience piecing. No more slipping and having the cutter run away. Much more accurate than rulers. I go for it any time I have to cut straight cuts of fabric because, unlike rulers, it doesn't slip. I've also discovered recently that if you are also a garment sewer, these make amazing pattern weights, especially for curly knits!

There are the two sizes in "classic" Slidelocks at Nancy's Notions online for less than the Slidelock website. They look like nifty tools. I see they have the neon ones too!
