What Is A Hemming Bird?

Well, leave it to my Mom to have one.  My Mother was just the best at sewing.  She could make anything; however, she never made quilts.  I think she left that for me, so I could shine at something.  Fortunately, my sister Sandy saved this for me and what a find it is.  I used it on my latest comfort quilt and it was so much better than pins and hair clips that I have used in the past.  It must be from the 1940's or 1950's.  It's supposed to be for making hems but from now on it's my favorite binding tool.


  1. I Googled Hemming Bird and found that they are still available for sale, if anyone is interested.

    1. I can't believe that my mother didn't have any.
      She also was an amazing sewer. I'd love some.
