Tool School: Week Five-Wonder Clips

What is it?-

Wonder Clips are perhaps the most versatile and useful sewing tool ever devised. For years sewers have used binder clips, hair pins or even clothes pins for any number of sewing applications where an alternative to pins is desired. The Wonder Clip, designed and manufactured by Clover, is the first clip developed specifically for the needs of today’s sewers, quilters, crafters and beaders. The Wonder Clip is available in two sizes. The Original Wonder Clip is 3/8″ wide and 1″ long. The base is flat to allow it to lay smoothly on any level surface like tables or sewing machine needle plates. The base is also marked in 1/8″ increments to ensure accurate and uniform application. Clip is 2 1/4″ long with 1/4″ increments marked on the base. They are sturdy, don’t leave marks and are easy to see through to enable accurate positioning on your projects. Original Wonder Clips are available in packs of 10, 50 or 100. Jumbo Wonder Clips are available in packs of 12 or 24. We also have new additions to our Wonder Clips, such as our Neon Green Wonder Clips 50 and 10, we also have our Jumbo Wonder Clips in Neon Green as well, they come in a pack of 24. Our Assorted 50 and 10 pack Wonder Clips that included colors: Pink, Blue, Purple, Yellow, and Orange. Where do you put all these Wonder Clips? On our NEW

What does it do? – We are still counting! We’ll let you know when people stop finding new uses.

•Sewing – Wonder Clips are a natural for holding together layered sections of fabric during the sewing process. Quilt bindings, hems, piping, seams, etc., all can be held securely in place while sewing. Unlike pins, Wonder Clips do not leave holes in leather, delicate or vinyl/laminate type fabrics. You can easily position appliqué or hold patterns in place while marking or cutting and avoid puckering issues caused by using pins on some fabrics.

•Knitting and Crochet – Wonder Clips are a real boon to knitters who are always joining their work at seams . . . side seams, sleeve insertion, sleeve seams etc. For those who crochet life just got a whole lot easier too. Clip all of your intermediate sections together in organized groups until you are ready to join them and then use the Wonder Clips to hold sections together while you attach. If you are beading with your crochet the Wonder Clip can be used to position the beads away from your work until they are needed.

•Crafts and Beading – Wonder Clips are like having a “third hand”. They are strong enough to hold virtually any sewing, art, or general craft materials in position while you glue, sew, paint, tie, staple, embellish, dry, or carve . . . whatever is required to create your masterpiece.
How do I promote it? – This is a product people get excited about when they see it. Just put a few out to demonstrate some uses in your store. If you sell sewing machines use them during the demo. Customers will always ask, “What is that?” Same for knitting stores. Let your customers see them in action and they are sold. Using them in classes is always a great move too.

  1. I purchased two packages of your wonder clips. I have used them for about a year now and all of a sudden they are breaking. This quilt I have gone from 20 to 10 . they slowly bend and then just break apart. Have others had this issue? I live in south FLorida and am wondering if humidity is a problem? I have read so many great reviews but I am not so happy now. They have been wonderful until now. Do you have any information? Thank you. KAY Blair blairflorida@verizon.net
