The Clover < > With Hot Hemmer you can fold, measure, press seams and more in one step. Measure, mark and print straight hems, rounded, inside and mitered corners. It is heat resistant so you can press directly on the ruler. A thin and accurate ruler that can be used with a dry or steam iron. It has a unique non-slip surface that holds the fabric in place for highly accurate results. Joan Hawley says, “Hold it near the iron to quickly measure, mark, or print hems, angles, and more.”
How exactly does one use this?
So far I've used it only to turn up/press in place a 1/4" hem on flannel. I put the flannel fabric on the ironing board right-side down/wrong-side facing upward. Then I put the hemmer on top of fabric near the edge to be hemmed. I turned up the edge fabric to the correct 1/4" marking on the hemmer, then ironed the fold in place.
Does it get hot? I have a metal hem gauge that does.
My metal one of these gets hot, this doesn't. It's made of a thicker fabric-like material that is fuzzy enough to help grip the fabric you want to iron. I've found it's thick enough that after ironing on the Hot Hemmer I have to pull it out and re-iron the fabric to get a crisp crease. But it has really made hemming a ton faster. I use it constantly.
Why is there a notch cut out on one corner?
The notch is for "squaring off" For example, you need to cut out a corner 2" down and 2" over. You would place the corner (marked 0) of the notch at the 2" down and then 2" over and mark. You would then be cutting out a 2" square. It is often used to make bottoms of something like a bag or purse. Hope this helps. Love my hot hemmer!!
I am not understanding what comes with 'by the yard' pack 3, pack 4 and pack 5 vs the basic?
Wow, surprise to me, wasn't there when I listed. It appears a seller is offering them in packs of 3, 4, 5. The "by the yard" is not applicable to this product, and I'd assume they copied some listing of something sold by the yard.
Hi. Does the measures are in cms?
The one I purchased is inches only. Please contact Clover to find out if they sell the product with cm markings
Would this be helpful hemming jeans? I usually have to cut off 3 - 6 inches.
This tool is helpful in hemming anything. You fold the fabric up the amount you want to the appropriate mark and then iron. Once you are done ironing in the hem, you can then sew the hem. You would still have to cut off some of the jean bottoms and then use the tool.
Why does it take 1 to 3 months before shipping? That seems a long time.
Maybe they are out of stock at Amazon. But if you scroll down, you can see that The Stitch Sanctuary has it in stock.
What are the actual dimensions of this? The description says 9.8" x 5.5" but the picture of the hemmer doesn't seem to be that size.
It looks smaller but it's actually true to size. If you're lookong for a hot hemmed for bigger project, get something else. Its more for small detailed projects.
what is the maximum heat this can be used with?
I’ve used it on the highest setting on my iron with no problem. It’s a very handy tool…
Is this made in USA?
Mine says Made in Japan.
