My excitement has been building as I’ve awaited the launch of Clover’s new bodkin tools. The wait is now over! I’m pleased to introduce to you the Flex ‘n Glide Bodkin, the Clip ‘n Glide Bodkin, and the Elastic Lock Set! Three useful new sewing notions that work well independently or together.
Flex ‘n Glide Bodkin (Art. No 9581)
The Flex ‘n Glide Bodkin is a long flexible bodkin featuring an elongated “eye” with grippers. The elongated eye accommodates ribbons and trims up to 1-1/2″ wide. The “grippers” hold trims and elastic in place while pulling through the casing. The handy length and flexibility allow for a smooth passage—even along curves.
Clip ‘n Glide Bodkin (Art. No 9582)
The Clip ‘n Glide Bodkin is my new go-to bodkin for casings that are 3/4″ and larger. The clip provides a firm hold on elastic, ribbon, trims, and cording, for pulling through casings with ease. The exceptional flexibility ensures a smooth passage along straight and curvy areas.
Elastic Lock Set (Art. No 9583)
The Elastic Lock Set includes the Elastic Lock and Flexible Bodkin. The Elastic Lock firmly holds elastic or trim ends and prevents the end from slipping into the casing. The Elastic Lock is also ideal for securing multiple rows of elastic. The flexible bodkin features a 1″ eye with grippers.
