Sewing Awl Kit - Speedy Stitcher

The Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl is great for sewing when a sewing machine is not available or not feasible. This video shows using the Sewing Awl with the waxed twine included with the kit and a #8 straight needle.

Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl Using Sewing Machine Thread

The Speedy Stitcher comes with waxed twine, but many Sailrite customers want to know if lighter sewing machine threads, like V-69, V-92, or V-138, can be used instead as lighter thread would look better than large twine in certain applications. See this demonstration on how to use the Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl with Sewing Thread.

A handy tool for awning repairs


Handy tool to have for repair work on awnings. Simple to use and easy to learn.

I needed to repair an awning for a pop-up camper. With all the layers of material it was never going to fit under any machine's presser foot. My sewing space is rather limited as well.

With the Speedy Stitcher, I was able to perform the stitch repairs manually in my garage. The stock needle easily powered through the layers of material. The repair looks great.

Have only examined the tool quality which looks better than the one Tandy Leather sells and the needles are far better than Tandy's.

Great tool for anyone to have!

Wow! I pulled on a loose thread in a sofa cushion and it just kept on coming. I had just received the stitcher that I had ordered for my sail boat but this gave me a great opportunity to see if I could repair it myself. It was a snap and it only took me 15 minutes to complete the job. How great is that? It just paid for itself just a couple of days after arriving. Great tool for the boat And it's a great tool for the home as well! 5 Stars here!
