An essential, bedrock tool in all aspects of leather crafts, the Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl also proves indispensable for repairing awnings, upholstery, sporting equipment, tarps, saddles, sails, convertible auto tops, heavy-duty handbags – even shoes. The hollow wooden handle of the Stitcher holds a 30yd spool of durable thread. Looped around a tension post, the thread is kept kink-free and perfectly aligned with the groove and eye of the upholstery needle which is locked in the screw-down knurled chuck. Extra needles are stored in the handle under the chuck. It is an amazingly useful tool whether in the shop, in the field or on the water.

Included with the Speedy Stitcher is 30yds of course waxed polyester thread (pre-loaded on the spool), an extra 180yds of course thread, plus 4 #8 upholstery needles (2 straight, 2 curved). Also available, extra 30yd skeins of course and fine thread, plus a pack of 3 needles (a #8S, #8C and a special #4S needle which is needed when using the fine thread). Made in the USA. Highly recommended.

  • Handy Stitcher

    Gloria, 12/28/2020 Fits the hand well. Good instructions. Recipient proclaimed " Exactly what I needed!"
  • More than one way to skin a cat?

    Whitney Eisenwinter, 10/30/2020 I have the item demonstrated and have used it for 45 years. I still have the hand drawn instructions, which clearly show the thread being fed along the groove in the center post so that the thread is inside the unit, up the needle slot and out the eye before screwing down the chuck, as shown in the still shot. Perhaps having the thread looped outside the chuck is for jobs requiring less tension on the stitches? It seems on sturdier jobs this might get in the way.
  • You need one of these

    Howard, 10/18/2020 I love it, after watching the speedy stitcher awl video tutorial I went at it. I'm looking for things to stitch it's easy, and well fun to use. Very satisfying to fix things so easily. I also made a couple of slings for items I needed to customize the straps. Glad it's in my arsenal of fix it tools.
  • My favorite tool

    Emma, 3/20/2019 This awl is simply awesome. I've had it for about a year now and have used for everything from leather crafting to repairing bike bags and heavy boots to making leather rings with the thinner thread. I love how compact it is too. I can stick it in my purse or pocket with some scissors and be able to fix anything anywhere. I like using a dot of super glue on the finishing knot as they tend to slip. I've only had one issue with the needles breaking, which was surprising because they look so tough. It could be just my sister being rough with them though. I had no trouble finding new ones. All in all, great tool, great price, great value. Thanks Garret Wade!
  • Speedy Stitcher

    Bob, 1/5/2019 I have a stitcher that I bought in the 1970's', parts have been lost since then but it has given me good service over the years.
    I wanted a new one with all the pieces so I ordered one.
    The quality seems to be the same and all the parts are there.
  • Denim. Leather. Canvas

    Godsey, 5/5/2018 So far I've used the Speedy Stitcher to repair heavy denim jeans and leather moccasins, and I'm really happy with how easy and effective it is. I wish I'd have known of it a few years ago when I had a couple canvas Duluth packs to repair.
  • Speedy Stitcher Awl

    Paul Studer, 11/18/2017 The Speedy Stitcher Awl was threaded incorrectly in this video. Once the chuck is taken off, the thread is inserted into the chuck and out through the threaded hole. The chuck is then threaded back on with the groove of the needle and thread aligned. The thread should be shown coming out of the chuck and inside the groove of the needle until it passes through the eye, not around the chuck as demonstrated. NOW it's correctly threaded and ready for use.
