    Has anyone used the Strip Stick? If so, do you like it? (It is supposed to help in pressing seams open or to one side.)

    Welcome from MI.
    Are you talking about the wood thingy that you use to press seams similar to this one?

    Then, Yes, I have one, use it and like it alot.
    I use it to press shorter seams, then press with an iron when I'm done piecing the whole block. Just straight seams, though. I seem to stretch diagonals too much.

    Nope, it isn't like that. Believe it or not, I'm originally from MI! Davison to be exact, and I can't get back often enough.

    thanks for the link. the site says it is also known as Pressing Bar. i have a set. i don't use them much, but when it is needed, it is a godsend.

    I just bought one at a local quilt show. I saw it a couple of months ago at another and waited and thought about it. I bought it 2 weeks ago and yeah it does help. I am in a wheelchair and have a hard time getting my material arranged on the board and not messing up what I just pressed. With the stick it isolates the seam and allows me to work on just the area I want. If you are pressing a seam open it is great too.

    I bought a package deal with 2 sticks (18" & 45") and a Seams Sew Fast Guide for $29.95 http://thestripstick.com/

    i have a wooden roller one. like the wallpaper seam pressers that are plastic with a handle, but mine is rounded/convex.
    either one would work fine though.
