Learning all about a sewing awl on our website.

Sewing awls are designed to create a perfect lock stitch, similar to the stitches produced by a sewing machine.

A sewing awl is a versatile tool primarily used for hand sewing and stitching heavy materials such as leather, canvas, denim, vinyl, and other thick fabrics.

The most commonly used thread for sewing awls is a waxed polyester thread.

It typically has a pointed and curved needle, often with a hook or eye to hold the thread securely
