The Quick Ripper Product Review

I noticed The Quick Ripper recently and decided to give it a whirl.  You know I am in love with my Famore Seam Rip but I wondered if The Quick Ripper would be handy for taking off all those small threads on the back of my machine embroidery. 

Any idea how difficult it is to hold an I-Phone in one hand and use The Quick Ripper with the other hand?  Suffice to say, it was a bit of a trick.  I was able to take those small threads off by keeping The Quick Ripper parallel to the piece.  The threads were shaved off in a jiffy. 
 It also removes seams and serger threads. trims up those fuzzy edges on fabrics, loose threads on raw edge applique too :) 

The teeth on The Quick Trimmer and very fine and it catches the threads very well.  The AA battery is included as well as a small brush to clean out the teeth.  

If you were hoping it would remove Machine Embroidery Stitches on the front of a design like I did, well, it doesn't do that....darn!

I think The Quick Trimmer is a handy tool and it is reasonably priced in my opinion :)  

How is that for getting back to work?  



  1. So is it similar to an electric razor or trimmer for hair?

  2. I bought mine at a quilt show. I love it! Used it to take out a seam in a dress I was making. I used my gorillapod on my iphone to take a video for my blog. Can't wait to take the seam ripper to my next class.

  3. Cool product, thanks for the review.

  4. That does look very useful....trying to get those pesty threads off the back is a pain....thanks
