Shoulder stand pressing tool and Tailor's Ham stand

Hi everyone,

I recently acquired two very useful tools to add to my sewing accessories from Lewis W Davis carpenter.  I have the tailor's ham stand and shoulder press stand.  I live in the UK and I just cant see these available for sale here, and maybe even Europe, so here is a copy of his advert.

Those of you with a traditional tailors ham might find this made to measure stand a useful accessory.  It holds the tailors ham firmly allowing you to use it for pressing sleeve caps etc. and is really solid.

Alternatively the shoulder press stand simulates the shoulder allowing the sleeve to hang down while you press or steam the sleeve cap to the required size and is much safer than my old method of trying to hold the sleeve cap on the tailor's ham with one hand and steaming with the iron with the other (have had a few accidents I can tell you).

Last but not least the multi-functional stand that doubles up for the collar press or sleeve head stand - great space saver as this is a two-in-one gadget.

I am delighted with my new accessories if you are interested then please contact Lewis at  I believe he will ship outside the UK but I guess you would have to ask for P&P costs.


  1. You cannot find those in Spain! I´ll have to ask for shipping out of the UK. Thank you so much for sharing this information.

    1. thanks for the comment - I am sure he can ship to Spain

  2. And you can't find them in Australia - he might become an 'international sewing friend' thanks to you!

    1. well he is only a young lad so fingers crossed for him - just needs a bit of luck he already does the hard work bit

  3. These are very unique and I haven't seen them in Canada or at least in our part of Canada.

  4. These are really good ideas! Thank you for sharing :)

  5. Hi there,
    Thanks for sharing this. I have a June Tailor Ham and wonder if it will fit into it snugly?

    1. Hi Marysia, I am not sure what you mean ie what will fit in snugly?

    - To: Comments@Arabic - News. Marilyn Davenport, a foul racist that she is, is more
    shocked that people are upset about it than the fact that she did tjis annd sent
    it to around with her own email address. Indeed, if you want to
    find instances of "accidents" that are just begging to happen, perhaps
    even as a result of tooo many AGITATION-IMPULSIVENESS-STIMULATING CAFFEINE breaks;
    then take note of the way tthe cops themselves so often and CYNICALLY FLAUNT the fact,
    with lights and sirens off, tha there's nobody around who would ever dare try giving them tickets.
