    What does a stylist (sp?) look like and where do I get one for quilting?

    Thanks

    I think you're thinking of a stylus - is it like a tool that you poke with? Sort of similar to what you use on the old blackberries....a stick.

    they appear to be a tool that goes on to long arm machines. Is that what you are thinking about? Or is more like a poker?

    I'm with Esqumommy. I assume you mean a stylus. It looks like an awl with a skinnier handle. Pretty much any pointy thing will work if stylus is what you mean. My hand sharpens those throw away chopsticks so she won't care when she looses it.

    You can use a chop stick or thin screwdriver instead of buying something. Also I use my seam ripper sometimes.

    Me too...I was thinking......hummmm...wonder what that means? Does the hand do independent things??? LOL

    BTW, I use the tip of my seam ripper as a stylus when I'm holding fabric pieces going under the machine foot.
