    I have always used this method to rip out stitches. I just figured others did also. Thanks for link though as it never hurts to refresh.

    This is how my 7th gr. sewing teacher taught our class to do it...I am 61 yrs young, so it was many, MANY years ago...but I am sure this will help lots of people... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: Naomi

    I thought everyone did it that way.... you mean I have been doing it the 'easy' way all this time? I always thought I wasn't that upset about ripping out seams because It didn't matter that much to me if they weren't straight to begin with.... I see why some folks would hate picking stitches so much!

    So did I. This actually makes me wonder how else one might be doing it.

    My mama taught me this years ago when I was sewing clothing. Made me nostalgic!
