I saw this tip today. I'm wondering if anyone has tried it. It is a pain to tweezer out all the leftover stitches.
After ripping out a seam, there are often little whiskers of thread that need to be removed before re-stitching. Now, I don't need to rip very often (NOT), but sticking them onto tape or picking those little tufts of threads one by one is simply a pain, and leaving them in and re-stitching is worse because they'll be stuck like that forever. These days, I simply reach for my eraser... Run (don't rub) the eraser over the whiskers and they'll come out of the material where they can be easily brushed away. I've been sewing (and unsewing) for 35+ years and this is the best idea since rotary cutters. --Marilyn Gore
