    My new favorite tool

    Don't remember who suggested it, but thank you. I bought some eyebrow razor trimmers yesterday and they are great for cutting stitches. I had to rip out 2 long WOF seams today and it was slick. Doesn't seem to cut the fabric but does a great job on thread. Of course, you have lots of little pieces of thread to deal with, but it is fast. I bought a package of 3 razors for less than $3 at WalMart.

    Add a lint roller to your tool list and run it over each side of your "ripped" seam to get rid of most of the tiny threads.

    I've never heard of the trimmer. Can you buy it at Walmart?
