The Seam-Fix seam ripper makes a simple improvement to the seam ripper to become a tool as useful as a pair of scissors. It is both a seam ripper and a thread remover in one convenient package. The Seam-Fix tool has a plastic end that “grabs” and removers the thread without sticking itself or gluing itself to the fabric. The Seam-Fix is a great companion piece to the Electric Seam Ripper.

Take a look at the video for a quick demonstration of this handy new tool and add one to your sewing tool kit.

We would all love to live in a world where there is never a missed stitch, incorrect seam allowance or crooked fabric. But reality is not usually that forgiving, now if you have never had a need for a seam ripper to remove that random error in one of your projects, we envy your blessed success! The small metallic point of the traditional seam ripper is a great way to remove the offending stitches and correct the mistake. After you have sliced through the seam with your tool of choice, you realize that there is now a line of tiny little thread bits still clinging to the fabric. Off you go to swoosh, shake, pick or otherwise dislodge the offending bits.

Seam Ripper with a Twist to the Rescue

Seam-Fix Seam Ripper InstructionsThis is when the Seam-Fix seam ripper really shines! With the clever addition to lid and the end of the casing on the Seam-Fix, removing the hundreds of nearly microscopic thread bits is a breeze. On each end of the Seam-Fix are soft plastic tips that when swiped across the removed seam, grabs and holds the little thread bit in seconds. Now you can get back to putting that seam together the way you had intended without having to waste valuable sewing time gathering up cut threads.

Truly this demonstrates the keep it simple principle, with one simple addition to an already useful tool we now have a simple to use solution for removal and clean up.

    I like my seam fix, but I am very frustrated that the lid does not slip over the end of the ripper. It would be easier to keep track of a lid if it is was on the end. Maybe that would be a design change in the future.

      We have had the same concern, you have to keep track of the cap. That is the same feedback that we have provided. Being able to get rid of the thread bits is so handy that keeping track of the lid for the time being is acceptable. Thank you for the feedback it is always welcome.
