I love this ruler! It has so many uses! It's very easy to read and the fact that it is see through is fantastic. The metal edge makes it very easy to use a craft knife and cut right up against the ruler. The evenly spaced holes are excellant for spacing brads, eyelets, or bling. You can also use the holes to mark faux or real stitching. It also makes centering things a breeze. I don't know how I ever managed without it!
