Angela Wolf Pattern Collection™
The Tailor's Clapper is the perfect and must have pressing tool for every sewing room. As seen on It's Sew Easy TV, Angela Wolf uses this tool for everything from pressing up hems, creasing pants, pressing seam allowances open, even pressing knit fabrics. All you need is a little steam and press the area with the clapper for perfect pressing. Made in Michigan, USA.
I am very picky about my sewing and pressing tools. These clappers have been custom made to my specifications using the finest hardwood available. Enjoy! xoxo Angela

I had never used a clapper before so I thought I would try it. I can't believe what a difference it really does make. Seams stay in place.

I had never even heard of a tailor's clapper until I took one of Angela's Craftsy classes, but now that I have it I wish I had gotten one much sooner. I could tell from the moment it arrived that it is a beautifully crafted, quality item. Thank you, Angela!

I have watched practically every sewing instruction video Angela has made. She always strongly advises using the best of supplie to produce the ideal product. I watched her always giving her seams a good final press with the clapper. I was skeptical but decided I would give it a try.. I refuse to press anything without my clapper, presses open seams, creases pants perfectly, flattens bulky fabrics, etc. I cannot sew without it..we "sewers" all know the importance of getting a good press for that professionally finished garment.

Great product, it's really smooth and has a good hand feel.
I like that it is made from hardwood that was not mass-produced.
Very happy with it!!

I purchased this clapper several years ago and must return and tell you again how much I depend upon it! I use it for mitered corners on baby blankets. I also make totes and purses and because I use this tool everything turns out so professional looking. I first heard about clappers when I saw Angela on public broadcasting and she told of the usefulness of this tool. So, not able to afford it yet, I began using a "clapper" that was simply a 2 x 5 x 3/4" block from one of the children's wooden block sets! I was amazed at how nice it made everything. When I had some sewn items sell I bought this one made to Angela's specifications. I have totally fallen in love with the results of using this. It fits my hand well, it is big enough to cover a good area without taking up too much ironing board real estate when not in use. At the time I purchased this I had been sewing for 45+ years and didn't know what I was missing. Thank you, Angela, for such a quality product AND teaching us how to use it to take away that dreaded "loving hands at home" look and give our creations that sharp "I know what I'm doing" look!

I never knew such a tool existed and truly not sure how or why it works, but it does work beautifully. The professional press of seams is remarkable, giving my finished product the look of a finely made item. So glad Angela Wolf introduced her readers to this well kept secret (maybe I just don't get out much, not sure)! One thing it really made a difference with: My husband bought a shirt made from one of the nice lightweight fibers they use so often in sports wear, and immediately got a pull in the fabric. He was going to clip off the resulting loop of thread and I asked him not to and to let me see what I could do with it. I pulled it through to the back of the shirt, stretched it a little, and pressed it this way and that. Looked better but still noticeable. I grabbed the tailor's clapper and did more fancy pressing and now you cannot see the pull at all! He was impressed.
A fine piece of workmanship and quality tool. Thank you, Angela!

Just purchased Angela's tailor's clapper, and I just love it! I had my mom's old one which was made out of a lighter weight wood, this one is much nicer (sorry mom). Angela's clapper is made from a solid hard wood, with no slivers.

Thrilled with the result when using my new clapper in my sewing projects! Am ordering a second one for my son who wants to use it when ironing his military uniform!

I shopped around for a tailor's clapper but couldn't find one that looked as nice , or was as well priced as this one. It makes the job of pressing seams and hems an absolute pleasure! It fits my hand perfectly, is not heavy, and it very smooth. Now I can't imagine ever being without one. Everyone who sews should have one as part of their essential tool kit.
