Fine Point, Extra Long
These tweezers are useful when working with overlockers or sewing machines. Use them to tease small trapped threads out of tight places or thread guides. Use them to guide patchwork pieces under the presser foot when chain piecing or when stitching near the edges.
These tweezers are especially useful when stitching pairs of triangles, diamonds or other pointed shapes together when constructing a patchwork quilt by machine piecing. Sometimes the little corners of the shaped patches can get trapped near the feed-dogs or bent over. These tweezers help to maintain control over small fiddly points whilst still maintaining good visibility of the work area and the patches and also keeping fingers well out of the way of harm.
Meg's verdict: I like to use these tweezers when guiding pairs of patchwork shapes under my machine needle. Sometimes, if I don't anchor the trailing points with these tweezers, the sewn line veers off the straight line and I don't get an exact 1/4" seam all the way to the edge of the patches. But if I anchor the back edge of the patch with these tweezers as it feeds under the needle, my seams are true. This is one of those small inexpensive tools that makes a big difference to the accuracy of the finished quilt top.
