Sailrite® Deluxe 5-1/2" Magnetic Sewing Guide is an easy-to-use seaming and hemming guide. Think of it as being similar in use to a fence on a table saw — it provides an extra-long surface to push a fabric edge against while sewing. The resulting stitches will be very straight and evenly positioned from the fabric edge.

Ideal uses include stitching of prefolded hems and the first stitch of a flat felled seam construction.

The aggressive holding power of the high strength magnets and special pads keep the guide firmly in place while sewing even heavy fabric assemblies. The unique construction and raised rubber pads won't scratch metal sewing machines the way a metal sewing guide might.

Spacing is easily adjusted on any machine by moving the guide closer to or away from the needle and will help to replicate the stitching of a double needle sewing machine when used with the Ultrafeed® LSZ-1 that has a single needle and needle offset lever.

The guide is adjusted or removed by lifting upward along the back side with the finger cutout. For applications where a short guide is required, turn it sideways.

Works on all Sailrite or any other steel bed sewing machines.

Made exclusively for Sailrite in the USA.

Top Notch Product

by -

Before I purchased this magnet, I looked at a lot of them and researched them online and found that this was the one to get, but I wasn't too fond of the price, but after getting it and putting it to use, I found out that I got what I paid for, a top notch product that does the job very well!

Guide does what you want

Guide works Great doing long stright runs keep a nice seam

Worth the Cost

by

I was put off by the price. I'd tried to use other mechanical devices to fashion a "guide", even a heavy duty magnet which just wouldn't stay in place. After watching your "powerboat bimini" video I decided it was worth a try. I was very pleased with the ease of use and most importantly the consistent seam placement. The magnets are strong and have a good size contact "footprint" so you won't knock it out of alignment accidentally. It is easy and quick to set up and remove. I think the convenience of use and the quality of the finished product makes it well worth the cost.

Outstanding business.

I ordered a Sailrite Ultrafeed LSZ-1 Plus, along with 13 other items, the day before Thanksgiving. The order was shipped the day after Thanksgiving. I received the complete order correct and undamaged the following Tuesday. Two days later I placed a second order. Within 2 hours the order had shipped. Service like this is incredible and hard to beat. Thank you Sailrite.

Good product, slow delivery

by -

The magnetic sewing guide arrived and it's in a very good quality. The shipping though, was very slow and the update in the ups website was lacking.

This is the perfect item for seam alignment

A Helping Hand

by -

I've had the Sailrite sewing machine for the last four years. My projects have become more complex and I recently purchased the Deluxe magnetic sewing guide; I find it to be easy to use and really helpful in maintaining a straight seam in particular when working with large material. I love it, glad I bought it.

Very Helpful Tool!

by -

While I'm not new to sewing, I'm definitely not an expert. This is a handy tool that helps me to keep my seams nice and even. I recommend this sewing guide to anyone who wants a more professional finish!

It's in the seam.. perfection

by

I love it.... I will be buying 4 more for my other machines!!! I had the metal one but it just wouldn't stay put. I had to work a little to move this one once it was in place. Awesome product!!

Great product

Great product. Makes sewing straight lines easy!

Truly a MAGNET in every sense of the word.

by

Truly a MAGNET in every sense of the word. I really like the size of it to guide a larger swath of fabric. I am am very pleased with my purchase. Everyone needs a guide like this!

My very first experience with this guide...

by

My very first experience with this guide was repairing 35 -40' of leech damage today on a large roller furling genoa with a Sunbrella UV Cover. It sure made sewing two parallel rows of zig zag easy and even. It's a pleasure to work with good tools.

Magnetic Sewing Guide

This helps keep yours seams consistent to the width you need. Great magnetic hold too. Its a nice addition to my workroom.

I LOVE THIS TOOL!!!

by -

Oh my goodness! I LOVE this little tool. All of a sudden I'm sewing straight, professional looking stitches. I'd considered putting one in my cart for awhile, but thought it was pricey... it couldn't possibly make that much difference....I'm no newbie to sewing, I don't really need a sewing guide...All wrong! It's worth every penny, it's changed the level of the look of my projects, and I really, really need it. Do it! Youll be amazed.

Great guide

Great accessory

Great accessory. The magnets are strong and hold securely.

So pleased

by -

I am so pleased. I love Sailrite's videos, especially learning about your products. Thanks!

Extremely useful

by -

At first I was in doubt as to whether or not I should order this item. After reading the positive reviews from other customers I decided to pull the trigger. The build of the sewing guide is top quality. The magnets are extremely strong and it takes a significant amount of force to move the guide. That said, using the built in grip to remove the guide functions wonderfully. Its odd how easy it is to remove when you pull from the right spot- but any other attempt to move it results in defeat. This makes my sewing go faster. I no longer need to strike a line before sewing- I can simply put the guide at the right position and I'll have a beautiful straight seam. So really, while the straight stitches are nice, it also saves a ton of time.

Can't imagine not having this guide!

by -

I have owned this magnetic guide for less than two weeks. Using the guide immediately improved the quality of my hems and long stitch runs! I liken this product to the rip fence on a table saw. I couldn't use my table saw without a rip fence. Now, I can't imagine using my sewing machine without this magnetic guide! Yes, it is worth the price.

5 1/2" magnetic sewing guide worth the money

by -

Great addition to the machine.....really helps in maintaining a straight line of
stitch, especially for the amateurs in the room like me..worth the money and definitely better than the little one inch metal model I had before

This guide is a winner

by -

I purchased this guide for use with my LSZ-1 in constructing bags and other small projects in leather, canvas, sunbrella, etc. I'm very pleased with it, especially in comparison to other guides I have tried in the past. The magnets attach firmly to the machine bed, but the guide can be easily removed for repositioning using Sailrite's suggested method. I expect this to be the only guide I'll need to use for my projects due to its versatility and quality construction.

Easy to use accessory

by -

Simple to use easier than marked masking tape.

Great idea

by -

What a great tool. This magnet is seriously strong. Once it's in place it doesn't move or shift. This is a convenient tool that has become a necessity. Highly recommend

Wow, what a magnet.

by -

Wow, this magnet is great. Stays in place very well. I like that it is long enough to maintain a good guide edge. I don't have the plate with etched measurement indicators, so this really helps keep my seams straight.

stays put

I'm glad to have and use this longer magnetic sewing guide. I like to drive fast and take chances with my sewing; I'm a bit of a lead foot on the pedal, and this has helped me to keep on the straight and narrow.
