Can anyone suggest a website or store where I can buy left-handed notions? I’m looking specifically for a tape measure, rotary cutter, mat and ruler. I spend so much time laying out fabric to cut, then realize I have to flip it; take a measurement with my tape measure only to realize it’s from the wrong side. I’ve been left-handed my whole life so one would think I’d figure it out by now but it just doesn’t work for me. Thanks so much.
I can see a left-handed rotory cutter, like a pair of left-handed scissors. But how would a left-handed ruler or tape measure be different from a "normal" one? I flip my tape measure and ruler around to read from left to right or right to left as needed. And both of them have markings on both sides. I prefer the side with both standard and metric markings. Although the ones that have them start from oposite ends of the same side drive me nuts. I want to read both measurements at the same time so I can decide which one is better at the time.
Chris; pardon my ignorance. I'm a rightie who frequently acts as if I'm left handed.
After thinking about your questions for a few days, I found this web site by googling "left handed tape measure". http://www.leftyslefthanded.com/left_handed_measuring_tools_s/79.htm?gclid=CKm8nfb4p6oCFccbQgodbxyFVQ
The first item on the page is for a left handed sewing kit for $120.
