Hot Hemmer Giveaway: Easy Binding, Miters, Hems
Lazies, One of the most basic tasks in sewing just got easier. How often do you measure, fold and press while sewing? Whether it’s binding, mitered corners, hems, or pleats; in quilting, apparel or home dec – these are all basically hems in one form or another. The Hot Hemmer is a tool I wish I had when I started sewing. It allows you to measure, fold and press in one step! Read on for details, a video demo and a giveaway. (Edit: the giveaway is over.)
Hot Hemmer by Joan Hawley for Clover Needlecraft, item 7806
What is a Hot Hemmer
The Hot Hemmer is a new tool in my Press Perfect line from Clover Needlecraft. It’s a 6″ x 5″ ruler printed on a nylon fiberboard that can handle heat and steam. That means you can iron right on this little cutie and it can take the heat! It’s strong, yet flexible and the surface has a little grip to help control your fabric. There are a lot of features and information on this little gem.
This is the demo I do when I’m on the road with Clover and Press Perfect. We introduced the Hot Hemmer at the Sew Expo in Puyallup, WA recently and sold out in the first hour of a four day show! It was crazy! This video is from Quilt Market in Houston last October, so there is some noise in the background.
This short video is a great intro to the tool and covers the Hot Hemmer basics.
With the Hot Hemmer, I was able to fold, measure and press hems in my pant legs in about two minutes. No more measuring, marking, pinning and mysteries. Because of its size, I can measure a span of up to 6″ at once. It’s a totally different ball game than measuring at several points along a hem and hoping they all match up. It’s quick, awesome and accurate. I keep my Hot Hemmer at my ironing board so it’s always handy.
Not Just For Hems
Pillowcases, table runners and placemats – border, binding, miters and hems.
Pleats and tucks on apparel or home dec.
Round and press the corner on a patch pocket.
Measure two directions at once to box the bottom of bags.
Here’s a tip
I use a water soluble pen when using the Hot Hemmer to mark something. That way, if I accidentally get a mark on the Hemmer, it will come off with water – nice! I do the same when working with the ironing board or mat.
One winner will be selected to receive one Hot Hemmer item 7806 from Clover Needlecraft.

What an awesome product Joan! I love the added features you’d given to this over the similar products on the market already. I’m SO glad I’ve dragged my feet at buying the others now because this is the one I’m going to buy. I was skeptical of others because the one in particular was metal and I really wasn’t too excited about burning my fingers while using it and I KNEW that’s exactly what I would have done. LOL
I would LOVE one of these!!! I don’t get a chance to sew much…but when I do, this would make life sew much easier!!
Are these contests for Canada too?

Huge time-saver! Nice that it has several measurement guides!
I’m usually not much for tools, BUT this ONE is a MUST – I’d wish I would have had it when I volunteered to make 83 valances for a children’s home a few year’s ago. Great for the pillowcase dresses going to Haiti too when folding down the top for casings.
