I have been sewing since I was 13 years old, when I first took Home Economics in Grade 7. Good tools are so important. I have added to my supplies, when ever I saw something that looked good, was different or improved. I still go to the look at the latest gadgets whenever I enter a different sewing store.
So where have the seam rippers in my collection disappeared in this new place? I have to admit to having 4 or 5 before I came to live here but they turned up somewhere,but they seem to head into a dark hole. I think there might be one on the boat.
I had one last week when my friend visited, it was titanium scapel blade with a red and grey handle with a end cap. I still have the end cap.
There have been the little ones, like my new one, with a little blade, they have been blue or grey. Then the ones with the red handles a clear top and a larger blade with a red ball over the sharp bit. Then came the scapel blades very sharp and excellent at serged seams, one had a home made handle from popsickle sticks. All gone.
I bought a new one at the dollar store, I was desperate, I paid my dollar, it broke.
Within 10 minutes of posting this, I found a purple seam ripper. I had looked in that spot I swear.
