History


The Speedy Stitcher was originally patented in 1909 by Francis Stewart of Central Massachusetts.  Mr. Stewart, a prolific inventor, introduced the Speedy Stitcher to the marketplace where it has remained in constant demand for over a century.

Mr. Stewart's friend and business associate John J. Hussey assumed control of Stewart in the 1950's and continued to offer the same high-quality sewing awl until 2000 when his daughter, Sheila Hussey Kelleher, relocated the company from Massachusetts to New York's Hudson Valley.

The Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl is a tool used by professionals and do-it yourselfers such as leather crafters, sailors, boaters, horse lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, athletes and coaches, just to mention a few. This is an all-in-one sturdy hand tool with waxed polyester thread and diamond point needles that is designed to sew a tight lock stitch, just like a sewing machine, with ease. Customers around the world call it, "indispensable."
