Description of Getta Grip Sewing Clips
The Getta Grip Sewing Clip is a 3-D multipurpose clip for the garment industry, home sewers, fashion students and anyone who needs to join textiles together. They are intended for sewing, fitting, draping, and alterations. They replace conventional straight sewing pins and work well on many different textiles: lace, stretch knits, paper, metallic fabric, chiffon, rubber, leather, etc. These symmetrical clips consist of two identical pieces etched with original artwork created by Paul Gallo which functions as a thumb press. The clips work on straight stitchers, overlocks and any other kind of sewing machine.
Pins destroy some textiles and break needles and machine parts. These clips prevent bloodstains and injury. The Getta Grip Sewing Clips are easier and quicker to take on and off textiles than fabric pins. The pressing area on these clips is larger for holding than other clips on the market. The tension spring is stronger and holds up to wear better than any clip that I have tested.
Why Clips? by Paul Gallo
While I was working with leather at a clothing design job many years ago I began using metal clips from a photographic supply house to hold textiles together for sewing. The clothing company that I was working for had been using rubber cement to hold the leather together for sewing, because sewing pins would not penetrate the leather hides. The glue was clogging the sewing machine needle, which would make it skip stitches and break the thread. The smell was toxic, and I needed to find an alternative tool for hold the leather pieces together. This is when I began using clips intended for photography. When these photo clips began to break I needed to find a new version of them for my design work. They were no longer available on the market. I couldnt find anything that worked as well. I decided to design and produce a better version of them myself. Getta Grip Sewing Clips are my resolution.
It's Official, Paul is an Inventor!
I got a provisional patent in the summer of 2008 and in 2009 got the US and international patents. It takes a village to raise a sewing clip. I would like to thank everyone who helped make this dream a reality. Get your clips today! Join the sewing revolution!
