“On the Eighth Day of Wishing,
I’d like to perfect my pressing .”

I use a wooden seam stick when pressing to avoid distortion of my fabric, particularly when constructing my blocks:


By pressing your seam on the curvature of this Strip Stick, your iron only touches the seam – not the rest of the project.  The flat side ensures the seam stick does not move (unlike using a dowel).

  • You can use this stick to press your seams to the side or to press them open.
  • Use an ironing surface or heat-protected surface under the stick.
  • The Strip Stick has a thin cushioning and muslin cover.
  • Manufacturer recommends storing by hanging by plastic cover (comes with stick), or laying flat to avoid warping.
  • The 18” length is very useful for strip sets, bias seams (i.e., half-square triangles), small blocks, or any seams you want pressed open.  This length is more transportable.  Click here for the 18” length on our webstore.
  • The 45″ length is perfect for selvedge-to-selvedge strip sets (such as used when making bargello quilts), sashing, or borders.  Click here for the 45” length on our webstore.
