Default ripper found

Some time back there was a post requesting info about ripper. I found the one I was describing at Annie's catalog online. It is called Surgical Seam Ripper and it is from Live Guides by Kathy Ruddy. The only ripper I have ever liked.

I read somewhere that some people were using their husbands mustache trimmers instead of this.

Has any one use a Eyebrow shaper as seam ripper? was talking to a gal some time back and she was telling me she use a eyebrow shaper as a seam ripper, she really like it becuase it has a guard on it so you can't cut the fabric. I got some to gave it a try [you can get 3 for less then $2.00 I think it was]. First off I CAN cut the fabric with it[ just lucke I guess]. but i do like the way you can just run it along the seam and cut the theards

Yep, got them at Walgreen's though I suppose Walmart also has them. However, I prefer my Seam-Fix ripper.

I like them and they do a good job, don't seem to go off track.
