    I have one too and absolutely love using it! Interesting I paid the same as you did and the other day I saw it for $7.95 at a different quilt shop!

    I bought one a while back and really like it, too. Be careful though, it might try to eat you fabric edges. I got a little too close the other day. and it started fraying the edge.

    Seriously, we're all like a bunch of junkies. We were having a class in our LQS, and the owner showed us her new item, and well, we all snapped them up, and we're glad!! My old fave is the stainless steel, but those rubber ends are the bomb, I'm tellin' ya!

    Wish I had invented this - I'd be rich!
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    This looks like a great addition to our "must have" tools. HOWEVER, It's made in China!!! Why do you continue to support them. I've been putting things back on the shelf when they're from China. We send them enough money every year, I don't want to continue to add to it. Now I'll get off my soapbox and do some quilting.sorry.- I just get so mad about that country. Do we make anything here anynmore?

    I went to a quilt retreat last weekend. We shop hopped on the way to the retreat and I picked up one of these rippers. I love it!

    Don't want to offend anyone but why whenever someone brings out a new tool does everyone think they need it. I'm still using the seam ripper that came with my original sewing machine my mum bought me for my 21st birthday. I'm now 63. It's still sharp and still works well. I have another 3 that came with my machines but they aren't in use. I did buy a pack of 3 at a quilt show once but they were hopeless. They were flat handle ones. They were too thick to fit under a stitch. They sit in a cup with marking pens etc.
    Same as all these fancy rulers the makers tell us we need. Our ordinary rulers with degrees marked on them will all do the same job. Also a lot of expensive templates can be made at home. Old xrays make great templates. Just clean the ink off with bleach.
    This is just my personal opinion so please don't take offense.

    I'm thinking that an eraser that sits on top of a pencil would fit the seam ripper and would work just as well

    I bought one last weekend at the show in Portland and found it works very well at removing the tiny bits of thread. I didn't need the seam ripper part although I like the fat handle on this one.
