    Does anyone have a recommendation for a good seam ripper?? I've used the cheap ones. I have a gingher (which I hate to say, I really DON'T like). I want something that is really sharp clear down to the point!

    Seems everyone at Guild is now using the mustache trimmers at the $$$ store!
    I have not found a really good one either--the big ones you can hold are not sharp and those darn little ones are hard to hang onto.....

    I use the Alex Anderson's 4 in one tool. It has a pretty good seam ripper.

    I use a pair of Havel snipeze to snip the threads on one side of the seam. They are super sharp and work better than any dull seam ripper.

    Here's a pair,

    I have the Surgical Seam Ripper (2 of them in fact) from Nancy's Notion's. They're super sharp and I haven't poked a hole in fabric since I got them! I use one for my hand embroidery and the other stays on my sewing machine.

    Tried to post a link but it doesn't work. I'm new - haven't got the hang of that yet! You can find it in her on-line catalog.

    I'm an excellent seam ripper but the airfare might be a wee bit expensive! LOL

    I love the seam ripper that came with my Husqvarna Viking machine. If you're near an independent dealer, they could order you one if they don't have them in stock.

    Also, I got a folding seam ripper in the Fons and Porter section at JoAnns and I love it. It folds up so I don't ever have to worry about losing the cap! It was a decent price too.
