    my new toy

    I bought this at a quilt show and love it. It is called the quick ripper for ripping out seams, it really is amazing. watch the video here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QA_2m0ZO8EA

    I want one! That is really neat! Thanks for sharing. Now I have to see if I can find it in the states anywhere.

    Cool. I wonder if my husbands beard trimmer will do the same thing.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    there is one on amazon for $12.50 and free shipping. i need a cat hair trimmer for my one furbaby so maybe i will order two and give this a try. i hope it doesnt eat holes in my fabric like a seam ripper does which is why i use my embroidery scissors to de-seam.

    I bought one at a quilt show also, but haven't used it yet. It's not that I haven't had to unsew any seams, I just haven't used this gadget yet. It worked really great for the woman who was doing the demo.

    Yep, that's the one! I have one that I bought at the Phoenix Craft, Sewing and Quilt festival in January. It does work just that slick! But save yourself some money and pick one up at Wal-Mart, Sears, K-Mart or any other place that sells beard/mustache trimmers. That is all this thing is. You can also go on the Wahl internet site. I am sure there are other manufactures that make these things. It also is suppose to be good for getting out embroidery threads.... and it does...

    In the video it looked like it had a guard so that it didn't cut the fabric and I'm afraid I'd cut the fabric with beard or moustache trimmer.

    Too much trouble to have to pick all the stitches afterwards. If you just clip the bobbin thread every inch or two, put the tip of a small scissor or even the seam ripper without using the sharp edge, in the middle stitch and pull up, all you have to do when done with that side is to flip and pull the top thread off. Hopefully all in one piece, if it was done right. Then you don't have all the little fuzzies to pick out.

    I just lay a piece of masking/painters tape on the seam and all the little threads go away. Easy to do

    Well I found it here: http://www.jmichellewatts.com/Quilting_Supplies.htm but I am thinking a men's razor would do the same thing and for a lot less $$

    Looks like something that would end up on the gadget drawer. I am tired of buying things that need batteries. My surgical seam ripper works fine for me and doesn't need batteries.

    i use a flat-edge razor blade and it works great but you do kind of need a 3rd hand and i realize its risky but i've not cut myself or the fabric yet and been doing it for years esp for long seams.

    It is a mustache trimmer which you can probably get cheaper at one of the big box stores and no shipping. A friend of mine got one at a quilt show brought it home to show her mom and her mom said oh that is a mustache trimmer. Needless to say the rest of us went down and got mustache trimmers.
