Demonstration showing how to use the speedy stitcher to sew a brain tanned buckskin tinder pouch for my possibles bag. I also threw in a few tips for dealing with some issues that might come up when using the Speedy Stitcher, In my other Speedy Stitcher demonstration video www.youtube.com I used a vice to hold the work in place and pre-punched the holes in some traditional vegetable tanned leather I made to sew an ax mask for my Michigan pattern double bit axe. In this stitching demo we're not using a vice or punch in order to simulate how the speedy stitcher might be used in the field for emergency repairs. I'm not going to have a vice or stitching PONY in the field when my tent rips open from the hurricane force wind, or my favorite backpack blows out all over the trail. And, since the speedy stitcher fits easily into a pack or ditty bag it's a good idea to know how to use it in the field without special tools, that way I'll be prepared when the time comes. The stitching awl of the speedy stitcher is extremely sharp and pokes right through canvas tent material, burlap bags, denim jeans, 1000 Denier Cordura, pack straps, leather boots, brain tanned buckskin, and bark tanned leather, I find it a very useful item to throw in my kit. The Speedy stitcher will sew everything I need it to sew, and it's a self contained item complete with waxed sewing thread.
