These are great at getting into places to poke and push. In particular, I love the way the flat end can be used to control fabric right up and even under the presser foot of your machine. Sometimes I get a little wave of fabric in front of my foot ..... but the flat side can be used to keep this flat and controlled. I use this in some way or other, every time I sew. And "Somethings Country" are a great seller ....... item arrived quickly. Thank you.
