Just tack it!

I just had to share my recent eBay find: a Tailor Tack-it pattern marker, bought for just 0,99$!

Complete with a lot of vintage carbon paper in various colors, and a marking wheel!

Using the U.S.A. patent number on the front of the packaging, I was able to retrieve the original 1958 patent for the Tailor Tack-it. How cool is that!

I can’t wait to use them on my next project! 🙂



  1. I have one of those! I found it at my local thrift store. Works like a charm!

    I have one of those too I bought at a junk sale – but I have never used it. However, now I will get it out of the box.

  3. I sort of inherited one from my mother-in-law and didn’t know what it was. I saw quite a bit, but had never seen one of these markers.
    How do you use them? Thanks. EL

  4. I meant I sew, not saw. EL
