I just wanted to say how much I love the Ultimate Stuffing stick I got from Donna. I heard about it here on Teddy Talk from Shelli: http://www.teddy-talk.com/viewtopic.php?id=688 I've got the long handled one and just ordered the short one.
Everything is easier for me to stuff now... but my NOSES... are SO much easier now with Donna's stick!
Thanks Shelli for bringing this cool tool to our attention!!
Oh, I'm so glad you posted on this, LL. I hate plugging products and nobody pays me to do so in any case. But I also found that Donna's Ultimate Stuffing Stick is just incredible for grabbing, pushing, and tucking bits of stuffing, big or small, RIGHT where I want them, with enough force to pack things firmly in place. I can't say enough good things about how this one particular tool assists my bearmaking.
I also have both the long and short handled versions; I recommend the short handle and think it's all you'll need.
Yay! And thank goodness for Donna, a great self-marketer, who just up and asked me if I had one, one day, in a letter... prompting me to buy. My wooden t-stuffer had just broken for the umpteenth time. I'll never go back.
Yep, I stuff hard. I had the hardest time stuffing the nose... cause the stuffing would ALWAYS shift and move the center seam OFF center No problems now with Donna's stick!
Just drop her an email to order one! Instead of posting her email addy right here (protecting her from email harvesters)... I'm posting a link to her profile.. her email addy is there http://www.teddy-talk.com/profile.php?id=182
