Sources – Notcher and Chalk Roller

jpatton21 | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

I have been searching for a couple of marking tools with no luck. Does anyone know where to find them?

The first is a notching clipper that cuts a perfect little “V” out of the edge of a piece of fabric. It’s great for marking the notches and dots that have to match on seams. I saw it in a catalog from a tailoring supply company about 5 or 6 years ago, but I don’t remember which.

The second one is a marking wheel that I bought years ago. It is labelled “Sew Easy – Chalk-o=Line.” It is a fairly flat tool. The inside holds chalk powder and at the end there is a small serrated wheel that rolls and lets the chalk trickle out in a thin line. I like it because there is almost no drag on the fabric when I draw a long straight line against a ruler. There is also a container of chalk powder that refills it. I would like to get another one with colored chalk powder (mine is white) if possible.
Has anyone seen either of these?

Thanks for your help.

      Thanks Elisabeth. Now do you have any idea what the notcher is called? I did a search on the site for notch(er) and scissors, but it didn't come up. Does it have a special name?

        Hi Joyce,

        You're welcome, glad you found the chalk marker! Oh, let's see, the pattern notcher is under "workroom tools" here I haven't used one of those but I am thinking it is for notching paper patterns. If it notches fabrics as well that is a really good idea. I usually cut tiny slits for markers but sometimes they seem to disappear.

          Thanks again Elisabeth,

          I didn't realize the notcher was for paper patterns. I'm going to get one anyway and see if it works on fabric. It looks heavy-duty enough to go through just about anything. I hope it works.

      I just ordered the chalk marker. Not only did they have it, they had it in 4 colors! Thank you so much.
