    No and no. It does say you'll wonder how you ever lived without them. They both look like a real treasure to have. Thanks for the link. I'm be putting an order in there.
    :-D :-D

    Years ago they used to call the second object (third hand) a sewing bird. I work with a regular stilleto and I love it. Let us know how you like your new "toys".

    I've never tried the Third Hand, but I use the Sixth Finger Stiletto and they are right about not wanting to live without it. Once you use it, you'll never want to use a regular stiletto again. I hope you decide to try it.

    Here's the one I use:

    I have them both. I might not have much time to live since I can't find the prong thingy! :shock: and the bird is too much trouble to set up to use.
    I know when I was using the prong thing, the two prongs made it awkward for me to use but it was useful for holding small pieces while sewing. I guess I'll find it sooner or later. :D
