Holly adds: This would make a great gift for the quilter in your life!


“Measure-By-The-Yard”TM is the newest measuring tool for
those who work with measuring fabric of all types, especially for quilters.
“Measure-By-The-Yard”TM is the easy way to measure yardage,
because it Converts Inches into Yards at a Glance tm. Now
there’s no more trying to get a stretchy plastic or cloth tape to lay flat…no more flip flopping of a yard stick, no more using a calculator, no more guessing, or making the wrong measurement.”









Holly adds: I have actually had a shop on Etsy since 2008, but I have never listed anything ;o(. It is time to change that. I have started to make charm bracelets using vintage (and new) items that I have collected over the years. Each one is unique. So, in the next few weeks I will be adding some items to my Etsy shop-hollymaren’s EPHEMERA ETCETERA. I will also be adding vintage jewelry and fun items for helping you create your own special art work.
I hope you will  check it out (give me a few days)-thank you!


“Etsy is the world’s handmade marketplace.”

“Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.”

You can find just about anything here! Beautiful, funky, unique, one-of-a -kind, gorgeous items abound. I have included some pictures below of sample products picked at random.






“Cut thread, string, fishing line or plastic tubing up to 1/8″ of an inch.”

“We could sell our EZ Trimmer for less than we do. But we don’t. The price we’d pay would be too high. In order to sell it for less, we’d have to outsource the manufacturing. We could probably cut the price in almost half. That might be a big deal on an item costing hundreds of dollars. But this costs less than $10.”

The EZ Trimmer is made in the US.  The molds are made in the US.  The steel is made and milled in the US.  It’s all US materials, except maybe the string… it’s hard to find that made here anymore.  So, we could save you a couple of bucks… maybe less than the price of a cup of coffee at a fancy coffee house, or you can help support US manufacturing.  Buying EZ Trimmers supports many small “mom and pop” type businesses.  Isn’t that worth paying just a little extra.”

“As I said, we could sell it for less… but we won’t.”
