Hello,

I am looking for sources for pressing notions: hams, clappers, point pressers, etc. Where have they all gone?

Thanks,
Joanne

Joanne,

I entered "point presser" in the search field on top left and selected notion from the drop down and hit the go button. I got this review. You can similarly search for other notion reviews.

You can get hams from a number of on-line sources like Nancy's Notions.......I read that June Tailor was discontinuing the pressing board with points, but I know that Cynthia Guffey offers one on her website.

I ordered one of C. Guffey's a couple of years ago. It doesn't hold together very well. She told me to adjust the screw hardware, but it doesn't help. I just let it go, but don't recommend based on my own experience.

I did like her narrow point, but the wood was rough. Maybe I just got a bum presser.

Have you tried Golden Hands Industries in Roswell, GA? He specializes in pressing supplies. NAYY, but a happy customer of his from sewing expos.

B Black & Sons

Make your own

I've been wanting to get a point presser and clapper too, but haven't yet.

I did make a sleeve roll out of stuff that was around the house. The middle was an old worn out beach towel that was clean but very thin. I rolledit up and stitiched it together along edge. Then took some old sloper type fabric for the outside and sewed a patch of wool on one side. Wrapped up the old towel in it and hand stitched it together. Photos are in my picturetrail account.

Sorry for the blurred photos.

My point press didn't stay down into the clapper well until I placed some clear elastic over the part that went into the hole that attaches them. I can remove it if I want, and it stays in nice and tight.

Hams and seam rolls can be found at Hancock's
In addition to the sites already mentioned Cecilia Podolok has very nice clappers--I love the small, just fits in my hand; she also has a classic pressing video. Her site is:http://www.ceceliapodolak.com/supply.html. Cynthia Guffey's site has a new revised version of the point presser available. If you can't find what you need on B Black's site call them, they are very helpful. Good luck!
