I love this item. The stiletto end allows you to pull up the tightest sewn threads. This item shipped quickly.

Wow what a gorgeous seam ripper! I am in LOVE with the colors. Packaged so adorably and arrived quickly! Will definitely be back again.

About

I'm a quilter who makes beautiful tools for quilting.

I've been quilting for over 30 years and love gadgets that make me more successful. While at a craft show, I found handcrafted seam rippers. Torn between two colors (green won), I decided I really wanted to own both. I knew the seam ripper was made on a lathe (my husband is a woodworker) and decided - I could learn how to use a lathe (and own a purple seam ripper, too).

I took a class, diverted some regularly reserved for quilting cash towards the purchase of a lathe and tools, practiced A LOT...and fell in love with turning. My husband loves that I spend more time with him as a result of woodturning but I'm not sure he's thrilled that he's having to schedule time in his own shop now... I enjoy the process of taking the acrylic blank from a rectangular lump and shaping it into a beautiful body for the seam ripper. I use high grade Japanese steel blades so the seam rippers will last for years to come.

I hope you enjoy using these beautiful tools as much as I did in making them. I believe having the right tools makes any hobby or craft much more enjoyable and satisfying. I also believe you'll find my personally crafted pieces will find their way to your list of items that you can't live without!
