What to call it, and where to get it - ?   Help... I'm In Search Of

Ellen:  Thanks for the link!  Just what I was looking for.  I couldn't come up with the right combination of words.  ha!  

Thanks for the photos and link.  I have never seen one of those covered with the gray wool felt before!  That is great.  Not what I had envisioned, but still great!  

Of course, I remember when it was still difficult to find gray wool pressing mats that didn't cost an arm and a leg.  I remember my LQS telling me they were selling so fast, they couldn't keep them in stock - that was when they were relatively new, and I couldn't believe the price.  Yikes!  Now you can find them everywhere, for a much more reasonable price.

I've heard them called a Clapper I think.

And "Ewe and Me" - what a cute name for a business that sells wool things!

Thanks - I followed that link and found out that the ONE quilt shop here in San Angelo sells them - wow!  Thanks again.  (I have only been in there once since I moved here, and was not looking for that specific item when I was in there.)

I had to play a bit to find it, but I was sure it had stick in it!

Oh great!  They come in different length!  I love my really long one for bargellos that I press seams open, and for my backing seams.  But I also love my 18”? One for just pressing blocks and part blocks.

but they do come in 3 or 4 lengths.

And they DO give an even crisper, flatter seam than anything else when you want to press the seams open - but I bet it works well on "regular" seams too.

Those pressing sticks are pretty impressive.  Might have to look into one down the road.

I made a few. Think I sent one to Carolyn. It was about a 30 minute project start to finish.
