My new toy...

It can do a tri-fold in about 2 seconds and a single-fold pattern cover in about a second. I'm in love. Seriously.

From this day on, life will be easier. (Can you believe we've been doing this BY HAND for so long...????)

And yes - this gadget-girl has been sewing ....but there's a small problem with a lost battery charger for my camera (therefore no evidence of any craftiness).

(Note to self: Steal man-of-the-house's camera and get back to normal programming as soon as possible).

They make machine that do that? That's pretty awesome! (and even more so that you own one!)

So what are you going to do with all that extra time you'll now have, now that your not folding patterns by hand?

Cosy said...

I love folding machines! Does yours make a lovely little clickety noise?

Margaret @ Konstant Kaos said...

I understand your excitement! I delivered pamphlets when I was in high school and the sock over fist technique was what was used to fold them.

Tiff said...

WOW what is the name of that? i need to get one! My husband is always having me fold those brochure for his printing biz. It's a total pain in the butt!

Debbie said...

I had never thought about all the time it would take to fold the patterns......what an amazing time saving machine.

Fabulous Nikki. I went to PrintPac with my Dad last week. So many excellent gadgets just like this one.

Please excuse me while I wipe the drool off my keyboard. That is ridiculously, fantastically good. You lucky, lucky gal!!!!

As an active member of Stationery-o-holics Anonymous I have to agree that this is the best gadget I have seen in ages. Now what possible justification could I come up with for needing one? The term 3 kindergarten invoices perhaps?

Happy folding!

We all knew you were the queen of gadgets Nikki!! That one is unreal.

What a great new toy, I hope it makes a lovely productive whirry, or clicky noise, just to remind you that the new toy is doing that tedious task while you do something way more fun.

Nikki said...

Oh yes - I'm LOVING the whirring and clicketing here.... Music to my soul.

Tiff - it's simply called a PAPER FOLDING MACHINE. You can google it and find out lots about them.... fascinating reading!

Now that is cool!

Sandrine said...

Cool you will have more time to make even more fabulous pattern now :)

Kirrily said...

Is it weird to want one, even though I have no real use for one!?

Fer said...

That's so cool!

When I first saw the photo I thought it was a spirit stenciller machine - like we had when I was little at school - and I'm thinking .... wot?? But now I know what it is .... fabulous - will it fold fabric?

Pinktulip said...

I love (and hate) technology! Amazing how soon you cannot live without a gadget you never knew about before!

Fiona @ Feebeez said...

I can so relate. One of my past employers used to have us fold by hand ... and then we got a folding machine. It was BLISS.

thornberry said...

Now that is cool!

About 2 nights before stitches and Craft, I would have sold both my kids for one of these- folding takes waaaay longer than you think.
Enjoy every single minute of that time Nikki as it whirs and clicks in the background.
