The Gypsy Quilter® Clappers are made of oak and made in the USA! Press a seam using steam and place the clapper over the seam for a few seconds to set the seam. Remove the clapper and you will have a flat, crisp seam. It comes in two sizes: 1-1/2 inches long, 3 inches wide tapering down to 2-1/2 inches and is 1-1/2 inches thick.
And the smaller size: 1-3/4 inches tapering down to 1-1/4 inches, Length is 7-3/4 inches.
When pressing units that have been chain-pieced, simply place the clapper on the seam just pressed while you are pressing the next seam. Set up your own little assembly line for perfectly flat seams every time.
An added bonus? When I am sub-cutting strips, I stack 2 – 8 at a time and place the clapper on the strips. The weight of the clapper stops the strips from shifting when sub-cutting. As you work your way down the strips, simply move the clapper as you cut! Don’t you love it when a notion has multiple uses?
