Tool Review Tuesday: Iron Finger

It’s Tool Review Tuesday! This is where we choose a tool, do some rigorous product testing, and produce a review that gives you the nitty-gritty details needed before you add something to your cart.

Featured Tool: Iron Finger by Clover, Item #82170

Connecting Threads Reviewer: Anita

What is this tool typically used for?

This tool is used to press seams in tight spaces to press on or press with. It can also be used to push French seams out for a clean finish.

Upon first glance, what were your initial thoughts?

Cool. I need it!

How did you use it?

I use it for finger pressing and keeping my fingers safe while pressing. I also used the flat end to help push out corners when turning something.

How long did it take you to learn how to use?

No time at all. It was really easy and fits comfortably in my hand.

What did you like best?

Fits comfortably in my hand. Nice compact tool for multiple uses.

Why do you NEED one?

The flat end for finger pressing is a time saver, but I also like being able to hold down the fabrics for pressing seams without endangering my fingers to burns.

Who would appreciate an Iron Finger most?

These are perfect for:

  • Beginner Quilters
  • Intermediate Quilters

    I do not have this particular finger iron. I use the one I do have A LOT. It’s great for a quick press when a regular plug in the wall type is overkill for the job (and I do not burn my fingers – gotta love that :D) If you don’t have one of these little beauties…you need to have one in your arsenal of tools!

    Mine is wood—works fine.

    These are also great for quilters who move to assisted living or nursing homes where they are not allowed to have irons. Waiting for someone on the staff to do the ironing is very frustrating, for sure!

    Hello, it’s Montell Rivera here!
    I work as a professional an essay writer and have created this content with the intent of changing your life for the better. I started honing my writing skills in my school years. I learned that my fellow students needed writing help—and they were willing to pay for it. The money was enough to help pay my tuition for my first semester of college.
    Ever since high school, I have continued to work as an academic writer. I was hired by a writing service based in the United Kingdom. Since then, the dissertations that I have written have been sold around Europe and the United States.
    In my line of work, I have become used to hearing, “Montell, can you help me meet my writing assignment deadline?” I know that I can save their time.
