Tool School Hold It Precision Stiletto by Joan Hawley

What is it? – Check out “stiletto” in the unabridged dictionary and you start reading about stylish heels or a long narrow knife with a sharp point.  Look it up in the Clover dictionary and you read about something entirely different.  The Hold It Precision Stiletto is an incredibly useful sewing tool designed by Clover in conjunction with Joan Hawley. Modern sewist require precision cutting, sewing and pressing.  Unfortunately some of these activities put our fingers in precarious proximity to either hot things or sharp things or both.  Done incorrectly we end up wounded or our work is not as precise as we envisioned and we’re disappointed.  So how can we achieve our sewing goals without risking injury from irons or needles?  Enter the Clover Precision Stiletto, brilliant in simplicity and flawless in function.  The tool itself resembles a long pen and should be held as such.  One end has a gentle curve and sports a “pointy” tip.  The other end is straight and has a silicone angled “grippy” tip that is somewhat flattened to increase its holding function.  Both tips are designed for optimum reach and visibility and the grippy tip is heat resistant so no worries about it melting on your fabric.  The Precision Stiletto is an extremely useful sewing tool that will make life way easier, and safer, at both the ironing board and the sewing table.
What does it do? –  The Clover Precision Stiletto is a natural for any application that requires detailed ironing or stitching.

  • The Precision Stiletto is perfect for holding fabric in place for precision pressing.  Doll clothes, appliqué, mitered corners, or any other close or small work can be held safely in place while ironing.  Use either the pointy or the grippy tip, whichever is most suitable. Iron right up against the grippy tip for more precision.
  • The Precision Stiletto is equally adept at the sewing table.  Fabric manipulation across the needle plate of either a serger or a sewing machine can pose problems with the confluence of needles, feed dogs, presser feet, pins, fabric and fingers, all in a very small space.  How do you keep track of all of that? The stiletto allows us to hold the fabric sans hands right up to where the action takes place.  This prevents any painful punctures or pinches and allows more visibility and control of our stitching.  Again, use which ever tip meets the needs of your fabric and sewing applications.
