The Strip Stick with Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-Jul-2016
The clever design means that you can press one seam at a time, whether with a small patchwork iron or a regular size, and it works brilliantly for pressing the seam either open or to one side. The Strip Stick, named for pressing seams when strip piecing makes ironing seams a snap without distorting previously pressed seams.
There are four sizes:
the smallest of which is 9″,
18″ which is perfect for pressing a single block,
22″ which is perfect for your strips sewn from Fat 1/4’s,
super large version at 45″ which works when you are sewing complete strips together.
You can find all of these patterns in our website.
