Maker Faire 2009: Getta Grip Sewing Clips Answered

As an extra bonus, they're designed to pop off nicely at the presser foot instead of sneaking under and breaking needles. When the first shipment comes in, we'll nab some of the clips to test and report back.

In the meantime, here's the demo video:

These look like the fancy paper binder clips you find at Staples. They also look like the clips I have for keeping my potato chip bags closed. I think they should have put a straight edge on them with indexed markings for the seam allowance and you can use that as a visual guide when you run the fabric through.
