Use this tape measure to find out how far things are from the center. It helps position where things go. Markings from 1" to 144" on one side for a regular measuring tape; centering tape goes from 72" to 0" to 72" on the other side.
Needleworkers can use to measure from the center of their fabric to the top or side, so you can start in another spot besides the center! Can be used for longarm quilting frames, too.
