These tools are a must for the intricate needle turn applliquer!
The Apliquick Rods have the NEW EASY GRIP. They are thicker thru the middle to make it easier to grasp. The price did increase a little because each rod has to be individually lathed to the tapered end with the bevel and the point.
You will be astounded with the ease of turning edges with these amazing, almost surgical tools. There are two Apliquick stainless steel rods. The fork on one allows you to hold the small piece in place while the other beveled rod is used to brush the fabric over the edge of the foundation paper. Use a glue pen or stick to add a slight smear of water dissolvable glue along seam line. Use the pointed ends of your rods to flatten out any puckers or ripples so that everything lays nice and flat. I love, love these tools for any complex small shapes that I need to be precise.
Additional Interfacing, scissors, and glue from Bohin is also superb.
