    This device is very usefull and easy to use but $18 is a bit expensive for a simple awl stitcher. Have since found identical item by itself-not in kit- for $3 at Harbor Freight Store.

    I ordered this item for my son because he wants to get into leather working. The image shows two different awls. I have the speedy stitcher awl myself and thought he would like having both. I could get one of these for about half of the price listed for this item but as it showed both I went ahead and ordered it. Only the stitcher with the internal bobbin arrived. When I contacted the company they simply replied that the item was only the one stitcher with the spool of thread and the needle. It makes no sense to pay twice as much plus shipping to get something I could get much cheaper locally, but the company refuses to acknowledge that. Read the description VERY carefully because the image they adverstise has very little to do with what they are actually selling and integrity is apparently not a core value for this company.

    This review is from: Stewart Sewing Awl Kit (Kitchen)
    I got my first Stewart Awl over 40 years ago and used it to stitch new soles onto shoes, bind journals and repair heavy clothing. I got this one to stitch the frayed ends of my 5 foot by 8 foot American flag. It came with a straight needle, a curved needle and a large roll of waxed nylon thread. The awl fits easily in my medium size palm and is easy to work with. As one reviewer already noted; to stitch anything push the needle and thread through the fabric seam. Then pull out a length of thread slightly longer than the hem length. Then pull the needle back and push it into the next part of the fabric seam. Thread the long piece of thread through the nylon thread along the needle. Hold tight and pull the needle out of the fabric. Your stitch line will be on the backside. Simply cut the thread and tie the ends together when you are done. If you are stitching leather or heavy canvas it is wise to use an awl first to punch a hole. The needle on this stitching awl is NOT strong enough to do that. It will snap.
