I purchased the Ultimate stiletto & I must say - it definitely lives up to its name. I honestly don't know how I did without it! I do a LOT of garment sewing & this stiletto is perfect for holding & guiding fabrics under the presser foot - and no worries about accidentally poking holes as with other stilettos! An added bonus -since it has a soft point it works well on my touch-screen computerized sewing machine (I seem to constantly misplace the stylus that came with the machine). I can't imagine sewing without it now. Thanks Liz, Marianne & Mary for a truly wonderful product!
