About Quick Unpick
A quick unpick, or seam ripper, is a vital tool for any sewing box. Whether you machine sew, embroider, hand sew, or cross stitch, a quick unpick in invaluable. These small, but incredibly useful, tools are widely available from eBay sellers. They allow you to quickly and efficiently unpick or rip seams and thread work if you inadvertently make a mistake or need to undo a seam to make a repair or alteration. A quick unpick saves considerable time if, for example, you have miscounted your counted cross stitch pattern. Simply rip through the offending stitches with the quick unpick in a matter of seconds or minutes. This tool consists of a slim plastic shaft and a metal head. The head is forked, with a long, flat blade that tapers to a point for easy insertion beneath the thread and a secondary fork in the form of a small point.
