  • The exceptional flexibility ensures a smooth passage along straight and curvy areas.

Bodkins.  Only someone who sews would know what a bodkin is.  Simply put, a bodkin is a tool that is used to pull various thin materials through a sewn fabric casing.  Elastic, ribbon, cording or other “drawstring” type materials can all be pulled through the casing to serve any desired function.  A bodkin usually resembles an over-sized sewing needle with a blunt point and a large eye.  The bodkin is attached to the cording and manipulated through the casing by hand.  The round point prevents the bodkin from penetrating the fabric casing.  Applications exist in everything from fashion to craft sewing to home decor.  The interesting thing is, if you don’t have a bodkin, you can “make do” with a safety pin or some other homemade device.  But not with ease and often not without a large degree of frustration.  

To simplify this necessary and surprisingly often used sewing function Clover has developed a range of bodkins for even the most demanding applications.  

What does it do? – Clover and Nancy Zieman have identified categories of unique bodkin applications and developed unique bodkins to satisfy those requirements.
  • Flex ‘n Glide Bodkin – These are long, flexible bodkins that allow you to quickly and easily pull draw strings through fabric casing.  Two sizes are available depending on any radius of turn restrictions.  The eyes of the bodkins are designed to solidly lock any material in place and prevent it from coming loose in any inconvenient location.  Unlike most bodkins, the Flex ‘n Guide is stiff enough to push through a casing but flexible enough to bend around intricate design features of your sewn casing.
  • Clip ‘n Glide Bodkin – When special requirements exist the Clip ‘n Glide Bodkins ensures a more secure connection between bodkin and elastic drawstring material.  A mechanical connection virtually locks the elastic in place.  The lead portion of the bodkin remains flexible and sufficient length to provide for ease of manipulation and speed the process along.
  • Elastic Lock Set – The Elastic Lock Set is especially suiting for installing elastic.  The bodkin itself resembles the standard Flex ‘n Glide.  The elastic you are inserting attaches to the bodkin.  To prevent the other end of the elastic band from being prematurely pulled into the casing a snap style clip is provided to secure the loose end and hold it in place, preventing it from slipping into the casing and causing you to start over.
