Clover Point to Point TurnerClover Point to Point Turner

The 7" long Point 2 Point Turner is a true multi-function tool that performs all of those functions extremely well.

Two points are available, one at either end of the tool. One is a sharp point that is perfect for tight, limited spaces like collar points. The other point is on the edge of the spatula shaped end. This is ideal for points with a little more access.

The unique shape of this point allows you to approach the point from the side, pushing with the grain of the fabric. Pressing out in this manner with the grain helps you avoid stretching or distorting your fabric. The long sweeping edge of the tool is perfect for turning long sweeping seams.

For turning seams with a shorter radius the spatula shaped edge is ideally suited. With a flip of your wrist you can switch from one tool and application to the other.

Easy and convenient. The flat, smooth arc of the spatula edge is perfect for finger pressing and the acute side of that edge is a natural Hera Maker. 

Here is a video on how to use the Point to Point Turner

Press Perfect Iron FingerThe Press Perfect Iron Finger by Clover

This 9-1/4" long tool allows you to hold, shape and press any number of materials with efficiency and safety. It holds your fabric and allows you to press right up to it without concern for heat damage. The finest, most detailed ironing applications are now easy.

The spatula tip is a great substitute for finger pressing. It's narrow enough to get into the tightest spaces and has just enough flexibility to smooth your fabric. You can even roll the Iron Finger across your fabric to press seams open.

Need to press a narrow seam without creasing the edges of a narrow tube shape? Easy. Simply slide the Iron Finger into the tube shape lined up with the seam and iron away. Flat seam, no creases. Don't want seam imprints ironed through your fabric, same process. Again, easy.

The Iron Finger can also be used to turn or point fabric that is loosely woven or knitted. The broad point or spatula shape manipulates the fabric but doesn't poke through.

Are you a longarmer?  This tool is the perfect thing to hold the fabric in place while preserving your fingers. The rubbery surface helps grip the fabric, and because the tool is tapered on one end, you can get it right next to the needle. If the presser foot hits the tool, you'll know it and it will also remind you to keep your fingers out of the way!
