What a wonderful gift set for a person who sews or quilts. This bundle set is at a discounted price.  If purchased separate, the cost would be over $150.00 plus shipping.

This beautiful solid Oak bundle set includes the following:

– SET OF 3 TAILORS’ CLAPPERS

The Tailors Clapper is a must for sewing and ironing. It is used to press seams without burning.  I discovered the clapper when I was taking a sewing class on making jeans and wondered how I ever sewed without it.  Now, I use it on everything I make.

Used with steam from your iron, press the area with the clapper and hold for just a few seconds, it will leave a nice crisp seam.

Larger Clapper weights about 1.2 lbs and measures 11 ½” inches long, 3” wide tapered down to 2 1/2 inches and is 1 1/2” thick. Medium Clapper weighs 12oz, and measure 9 1/2″ long, 2 1/2″ wide tapering down to 2″. Smaller clapper weighs 6 oz, and measure 8″ long 2″ wide tapered down to 1 1/2″ and is 1 1/2″ thick.

Both sides have routed grooves to offer easy handling and is unfinished to absorb the steam better.

Colors may vary from the above picture, they may be lighter or darker depending on the variations of color in the wood used.

– SET OF 4 PATTERN WEIGHTS

Set of 4 pattern weights are just the thing to hold those pattern pieces in place instead of pins while you cut with your scissors or rotary cutter.

Also great for tracing patterns.

Made of beautifully crafted Oak and weighing approximately 8 oz each, set of 4 weights approximately 2 lbs and measures 1 1/2″ in height and 3″ diameter. Bottom is unfinished to help prevent shifting.

The center of the weight of filled with lead. Lead is completely encased in wood.

Colors may vary from the above picture, they may be lighter or darker depending on the variations of color in the wood used.

– POINT PRESSER

Here’s is a valuable piece of equipment that every sewer needs. This is actually two tools in one. The top, narrow-surfaced, point presser side works like a tiny ironing board for pressing hard-to-reach seams and enclosed corners, like those on collars, lapels, and cuffs.

A point presser is used for pressing hard-to-reach seams. Slip the seam, wrong side up, over the point and press open.

The bottom, clapper side is used to apply pressure to set permanent creases to form crisp edges, and flatten bulky seams.

To use, first apply steam to the area with your iron, then press with the clapper, leaning on it and applying as much pressure as possible. Hold this position until both the fabric and wood (which presses the steam into the area without adding heat) have cooled.

Comes unfinished.
