Overstitcher and Pricking Wheels


Overstitch wheels are used to make spacing marks to aid in even hand-stitching and then to roll over the finished stitches to help "set" them. They have a rounded profile between the points to round up the stitch appearance as well.

Pricking Wheels

Pricking wheels are also used to make spacing marks for hand-sewing. Generally speaking the points are a little sharper and more distinct than an overstitching wheel. Many who hand sew prefer a pricking wheel for that reason.
