Seeing as I am terrified of any powered hand tool (due to being both clumsy AND left-handed), I leave attaching canvas to stretcher bars with staples to those more adept than I.
But if I did I would be racing down to the local hardware store to buy the two tools Suzanne Hicks talks about in her recent blog post. You’ll find a great new staple gun that looks so friendly I might even try it. That’s along with a very cool staple remover.
They look like tools that could change your stitching life by making it both easier and happier.
