A few years ago a new quilting friend had given me a gift and it was a sewing birdie. I had never seen one before. Some sewers call it a third hand. Mine looks kind of like a bird and clamps onto the table. then you put the one side of the fabric in the birds beak (kind of) and hold the other side and you can rip the seam out. I now have looked them up and there are antique ones that really look like a bird. I use it a lot.Anyone else have one?
