    I'm wondering too. Maybe we're the same age.

    Well I looked at them at this site, even real closeup, and I still can't figure out if it's a blade or something else. Please enlighten us.

    My DH got an electric one for Christmas some years ago and he's never used it. I might try it but I'm not sure if it'll shave my quilt as well as the stitches I want to take out. How is it used?

    I use painter's tape to mark my rows or columns. I write right on the tape. No nasty residue, and 'jack the ripper' gets another day off! Good luck. :)

    Wait wait wait...does this mean I've been (painfully) PLUCKING my eyebrows all these years when there was an easier, more comfortable method?

    If you think plucking is good, you should try waxing. All the pain of plucking AND burns from hot wax. Mwahahaha!

    Actually I started cold waxing at home after getting the burns at a salon. It's not too bad, but the shaver sounds good.

    Reverse sewing (ripping out) can be done using your rotary cutter. It's tricky, but goes very fast. Pick out the first few stitches then hold the rotary cutter like you would a pencil. Be careful you only touch the stitches and not the fabric. Like I said - it takes practice but goes quickly. Good luck.

    Yes, I use the sm. embroidery scissors. I keep them mounted on a stick-on hook on the end of my sew. mach. I like them better than seam rippers. I use them for many things & they're my favorites.

    I tell my sewing students on the first day that the seam ripper is their Best Friend! I think I'll name him Jack now, too!

    Eyebrow razors? YIKES! I usually just ignore mine, and they're pretty substantial - just don't like the pain....but maybe I'll pick some up to use for my (frequent) un-sewing

    How come I could give birth 7 times with no meds, but can't stand having my eyebrows done? Even "threading" which my dd told me didn't hurt as much, really DID!

    I am well acquainted with the ripper. Only thing is, I use a razor blade inserted into one of those paint scraper things. That protects my hands and makes it easy to rip away. Sorry you have so much to rip!

    I have them too. They are a great little tool. Good for snipping yarn when knitting or crocheting also. Are yours the ones you pinch together and place a cap on the points ? That's the kind I have , don't know if there are any others.

    Bless you heart Ditter, so sorry you and The Ripper have to join hands again. Makes for a very disgusting time when you think you are about through. Thinking about you and your extra work. Gerbie

    What? This doesn't match, strange I had the quilt turned to the side to make sure I was sewing them together right. I tried the other side, still no match. Then I realized I had the top edge of the quilt towards me when I started matching up the squares!!!!AAARRRRRGGGGG

    Time to take a break before I put Jack the ripper to work.I have to take out every seam and start over. You can be sure I will make sure I am using the right row for my guidelines this time!!! :|

    Me too Leota, when I read the last page and noticed some were talking about eye brows, I thought o.k. am I with the right group here or did I tune in to something else. lol

    Where do you get eyebrow shavers? I have never heard of them.
