  1. WOW! What an amazing tool! I would love to find one under the tree on Christmas morning, because I would be the envy of all my stitching friends! Not likely though, I have never seen these in Australian quilting/fabric stores!

  2. Woah I would love to find that in my stocking ad it is like the Swiss Army knife of seam rippers. It’s totally awesome.

  3. 2MuchFun says:

    This tool would make it so much easier for me to see those “oops” that happen.

  4. Paulette says:

    Since I am someone who makes frequent “oops”, this tool would be so wonderful to have!

  5. sue viall says:

    At first glance , I thought it was a seam ripper with a Spoon , ha ha

  6. Lisa Marie says:

    This looks like just the thing for me and my over 40 eyes!

  7. Jeanie says:

    This would be great for my tired old eyes! Thanks!

  8. Oh the whoas of unsewing! This little baby could certainly help!

  9. Sharon Stone says:

    A light and a magnifying glass. This could be quite useful!

  10. shez says:

    what an awesome present to find in my santa sack,as i find it so hard to see when unpicking.xx

  11. tpott says:

    This would be great, I’ve just started to need glasses for close up stuff. Because it’s so new I forget a lot of the time or misplace them. This would be so helpful. This getting old stuff really stinks. ;->

  12. Bonnie says:

    Sounds like the perfect gift for the “mature” quilter or sewer.

  13. Gene Black says:

    I want Santa to leave this in my stocking because Oh My does my machine ever make mistakes. I think sometimes it just gets mad at me for being gone all day.
    This little gem would certainly help to clean up the messes it makes when it is angry with me.

  14. Sue McPeak says:

    Holy Light Bulb!!! This little Quilters Gadget gives a whole new meaning to “RipIt RipIt RipIt”. I’d be tempted to ‘Stitch a Crooked Seam’ just to ‘UseIt UseIt UseIt’. Great GiveAway…thanks for the opportunity!

    Wow, this nifty little gadget may just solve all my problems!

  19. Sallie says:

    Santa, Please leave this in my stocking. I need the extra light and I’m sure the elves have told you how much unsewing I do.

  20. Nancyz says:

    Dear Santa, I really could use this! Sometimes my eyes need a little help. Thank you for the giveaway.

  21. Gill says:

    What a great idea! I’ve never seen one before! Perfect for my poor old eyes!!

  22. Linda says:

    Would love to try this tool.

  23. Donna G. says:

    My current seam ripper??? It’s the one I bought (make that my parents bought) for me for my 7 th grade Home Ec class! And believe me……it has seen LOTS of use! Thanks for the chance to win. Oh, forgot to mention……7th grade was 1977.

  24. Mommarock says:

    the old eyes aren’t what they used to be, so the magnifyer sounds like a blessing to be sure you know, for when that machine is naughty and makes a boo boo.

  25. This cool tool would sure help with my unsewing. Somebody sure was thinking

  26. Sandra says:

    This is so unique. I would love to see this amazing lighted seam ripper in my stocking. This would be another tool to add to my box cutter. Can’t wait to have it and start ripping out seams. Thank you for such a valuable gift.

    Sandi T.

  27. Andrea says:

    I would love this! I could undo all my frantic sewing (done in my basement sewing room) in the family room, surrounded by family, despite the poor lighting!

  28. Lynn S says:

    Any tool that can help me see better what I am doing is a friend of mine! This looks amazing and I would love this too!

  29. Anne says:

    I would love for Santa to leave this amplified-vision seam ripper in my stocking because I sometimes poke holes in my fabric when I have to rip a sewn seam.

  30. Becky says:

    Dear Santa,
    I know that you will remember my red and white project. I threw it in the UFO cabinet when I realized I had sewn the wrong fabric to the Bazillion half square triangles. Please, Santa, bring me a lighted seam ripper. I NEED one!

    Trying to be good,

  31. marth225 says:

    I’m getting old and need all the help I can get. Thanks

  32. Wow! This might make frogging kind of fun – thanks for a chance to win!

  33. Carla says:

    I still ave a little room in my stocking ; )

  34. Kristy says:

    Yes, my machine sews mistakes sometimes too. I would be thrilled to find the lighted seam ripper in my stocking.

  35. Cindy says:

    Unfortunately, I can’t even blame my sewing machine for my unsewing needs as I need to even unsew with hand stitching. Thanks for the chance to win. mcdowallrc@gmail.com

  36. Kay says:

    I already follow your blog. I could really use this lighted seam ripper because I am the Queen of Ripping. I am too much of a perfectionist & am always ripping out, so this would be a perfect tool for me.

  37. Joni says:

    I am a devout follower of the Moda Cutting Table Blog ! Love it!
    This seam ripper would really be nice for those times when I’ve quilted into the wee hours and my eyes go fuzzy. Thanks for the chance!

  38. Santa knows that it is getting harder and harder for me to see when I’m sewing yet alone ripping, so he knows I need this tool.

  39. Sue Bone says:

    That would be a welcome and often use addition to my stocking.

  40. Karen says:

    Because I refuse to admit that I need magnifying glasses to see small things, this ripper would be a legit way to better see the stitches and not have to wear glasses.

  41. Karen says:

    My blog name is ‘Where is my Seam Ripper?’. Need I say more?

  42. B Greene says:

    I want Santa to leave me this seam ripper so that I can enjoy (and see!) the process of unstitching my hard work…

  43. Pat S. says:

    I hate to admit that I need a seam ripper with a magnifer attached…but I’d make really good use of it if I had one….just sayin’ LOL

  44. giddy99 says:

    WOW! That’s awesome! I would love it because it seems there just ever isn’t enough light!

  45. Susan C says:

    Sure could find a use for this, especially when sewing (and unsewing) at night!

  46. Gina S. says:

    I need santa to leave me this! I’m blind as a bat and this would make ripping out seams so much faster if i could see them.

  47. Phyllis says:

    Santa please put this in my stocking! I can never find my reading glasses!

  48. Kd Brown says:

    A fantastic tool that should be in my stocking because I mess up my sewing a lot and it’s unique features would be a real help for my eyes.

  49. DebrafromMD says:

    I need one of these in my stocking because my old eyes need all the help they can get.

  50. Wendy says:

    I need one of these because I unsew more than I sew (is that even possible?)

  51. Linda says:



  52. I think this is so handy- I could totally see my Grandmother using it and I would love to be able to give it to her.

  53. paulette says:

    Oh yeah…I would be THRILLED to find this little tool in my stocking!! Thanks for the chance to win it!

  54. LJ says:

    Santa, try as I do, I still make some boo-boos when I am sewing. I could really use this unsewer, the “Lighted Seam Ripper” in my Christmas stocking. Besides, as the years creep up on me, I find I need extra light and a bit of magnification.

  55. tjm24271 says:

    I am as blind as a bat when it comes to un-sewing! LOL, and my glasses or readers are never close by. This seam ripper would take away the stress of picking out stitches. Santa, please bring me one for Christmas!!!!

  57. kydawson says:

    This….Is….Awesome!!! Great for my eyes. My messed up seams better watch out! This would be a wonderful addition for the holidays with all the projects being composed. 🙂

  58. It’s not that I ‘need’ an unsewer, but having one for when friends are around would be pretty handy. 🙂

  59. Tracy says:

    These gramma’s eyes are not what they use to be. They need a little help now and then. I’m not a perfect sewer either! Oh well, I try!

  60. Sew.well says:

    A lighted, magnified, ergonomic seam ripper with a rotating arm? I gave up on those cheap seam rippers years ago but this modern seam ripper just might be the push for me to give up my straight-edged blade, especially since my eyesight to tedious sewing jobs is not as good as it used to be! Happy Holidays.

  61. Jacque Dunn says:

    I could sure use a new seam ripper. I have been using my current one for over 20 years!

  62. I would love it in my stocking mainly because I don’t have it!!!!I have a hard time seeing and this would help my rippingdsr skills immeasurably.

  63. Marianne says:

    I have been trying to get hold of one of those for a long time but no quilting store I have visited this past years has carried these. Thank you for the opportunity to win one instead.
    The Queen of Ripping

  64. teachpany says:

    Sometimes I make mistakes, so lighting the way would make it easier to fix. I need one to help me see my mistakes! Thanks.

  65. dyannec says:

    yeah, just what these “older” eyes need, thanks for the chance to win

  66. Mary says:

    After having to remove black thread from black fabric, this is definitely on my list of I NEED THIS!

  67. Tammy Jones says:

    Now that I have middle-aged eyes, I soooooo need this in my stocking!!

  68. ELNM says:

    I’m a follower! As my eyes age (my, eyes, not me…!) I can use all of the help I can get. Light and magnification should do the trick! Many thanks!

  69. SIMPLESEW says:

    I need this one.. s

  70. Lynne says:

    Oh, you mean I wouldn’t have to put on my glasses…. again. lol

  71. I suffer from double vision, so this would be a huge help!

  72. Lori H says:

    My husband would agree I need this handy dandy tool!

  73. sharon says:

    My stocking is empty so far, I am hoping this finds it way into my poor, empty stocking.

  74. Vicky says:

    With this seam ripper, I can see the light … and my mistakes!

  75. susant says:

    I would love to find this in my Christmas stocking instead of reading glasses which I can never find when I need them. When I am stitching away and need to use the seam ripper more often than I like to admit, I would not have to hunt for my glasses.

  76. marogez says:

    What a really cool idea! As many times as my sewing machine has messed up I could really use this, the light AND magnifying glass! Please Santa! If not than this is going on my wish list.

  77. Now this looks like something that could come in handy for my old eyes.

  78. Heather A says:

    My 53 year old eyes would sure benefit from this handy dandy seam ripper. I don’t wear prescription glasses but have recently taken to wearing some off-the-shelf reading glasses when I sew. What a difference they make. This would be PERFECT for me!

  79. LucyL says:

    Oh wow, a seam ripper with a magnify glass! I need this! I just bent my seam ripper last week (ouch!) and a seam ripper is on my i-need-it list. Please pick me 🙂

  80. annemarie says:

    This is fabulous – hope I am lucky.

  81. Cindi says:

    A tool that can help my failing eyesight? What more could I ask for?

  82. Miss Nancy says:

    A tool that magnifies what you need to unsew! Perfect for me as I unsew frequently and I need to know where my hand is taking that ripper. Thank you for this great giveaway.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day!

  83. pbs.seams says:

    Well you see Santa, as I’m getting old and my glasses don’t always cut it, this lighted seam ripper would be quite helpful.

  84. Lisas Mom says:

    Santa even though I can see fine closeup I would luv to add this to my tool kit.

  85. Jennifer says:

    Dear Santa,
    You know how much I need this!

  86. Brenda says:

    Santa is a kind man, he feels sorry for me when I have to rip stitches out of my quilt top. He worries about my eyesight and thinks this tool is awesome! I think he is a kind and very smart man!

  87. maggi says:

    A lighted seam ripper would be very handy when I have to undo my mistakes (which happen way to often!). Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to find out about some really great products!

  88. That is a must have tool. I broke the tip off my favorite seam ripper, plus I can’t see worth a darn anymore. This tool would solve both problems. I love following yor blog and getting the newsletter.

  89. Laura G says:

    this would be so helpful for that technique that I use all to often; reverse sewing.Thank you for the contest.

  90. Lindi says:

    Hhmmmm, just went to the eye doctor yesterday and found out my eyes are wprse then I thought….which is not good. Really could use this!

  91. ritainalaska says:

    i think i unpick more seams than i sew … argh! it only seems like i do. the lighted, magnified ripper would certainly change my attitude! thanx for the chance to win one.

  92. Dear Santa, I would love to have this great tool, you see, these over 60 eyes could really use the help when trying to follow those little mistakes.


  93. Quiltingmama says:

    Wow, what a great gift, especially to those of us that are visually challenged….

  94. Willa says:

    Looks like just the kind of help I need!

  95. sue says:

    I would love to have this for my stocking as the light and magnifier would really help when try to remove those wayward stitches.

  96. hueisei says:

    This would be a great help for me. I had a double vision problem.

  97. Marianne says:

    This is great, I did not know it even existed! Since I’ve gotten older, the more light the better!

  98. ladydi47 says:

    Oh my goodness…my eyes are jumping with excitement…they see an end in sight for “squinting”! LOL All kidding aside, this little tool would be a given from heaven!!

  99. Abbigail says:

    Whatever will they come up with next??? Wow Santa, I sure could use this! My eyesight isn’t what it used to be and this would sure help !

  100. Santa, as you know I really need lots of light to remove those inaccurate seam allowances. And I promise to be good and share at bees.

  101. gccmom says:

    All I can say is Santa,,,I have been good, but I’m sure not winning anything lately.

  102. Janan says:

    Any quilter with “over 50” eyes would love to have this!

  103. jules says:

    What a ripper. Built in light and magnifier – perfect. Just what I need.

  104. Gidget says:

    Because I have to rip out A LOT!

  105. charlotte says:

    I would love to get one of these in my stocking! I would hope that with 100,000 hours of light, I would never use it up!

  106. JoyceLM says:

    My poor eyesight could really use this seam ripper. Thanks for the chance to win it.

  107. Jeanne says:

    This would be great for eyes to see better with and a great Christmas gift.

  108. Deb says:

    What a fabulous little tool. Especially as I need magnifiers now to see anything up close! Damn the aging process!

  109. Lynn says:

    i’m about to turn 45 and am noticing my vision is blurring up close! plus my seam ripper is my favorite tool (and most used). thanks!!

  110. Carla says:

    My eyes would love this seam ripper. To light and magnify makes this one amazing. This is one that needs to be in my stocking for sure. I need eye assistance…

  111. Well, of coarse it’s the machine that makes the mistakes! This looks like a very cool tool!

  112. Chris S says:

    Wow, this would be one handy little dude to have around! I can’t see worth a darn up close anymore!

  113. jennyg says:

    Oh Santa please help my poor eyes for Xmas so I can rip out those pesky stitches without any trouble.

  114. bairdmtn says:

    Oh, so shall we sew, so shall we rip! Santa, please leave this in my stocking because we DO have to rip from time to time! This would make that task so much easier!!

  115. Tina O. says:

    This would help tremendously when frogging (rip it, rip it) black thread on black fabric.

  116. Holly says:

    What a neat idea and so practical – a beautiful sight for sore eyes!

  117. Michelle says:

    Now that’s a sight for sore eyes!! Since unsewing is a specialty of mine, this would be the perfect stocking stuffer.

  118. What a useful little gadget. thanks

  119. Denise J. says:

    Would love to find this tool in my stocking. These eyes are getting tired and old and unfortunately I still have those “oops” moments.

  120. Sheryl says:

    oh man oh man do I need this. Please Santa….I have been very good this year.

  121. Flo says:

    This would be wonderful in my stocking! My poor old eyes and bifocals are not very good! Thanks for the chance of winning this wonderful gift.

  122. mary mahoo says:

    What a great thing to find in my stocking! These old eyes aren’t what they used to be. Thanks for the chance to win.

  123. Tina says:

    I have got to get one!!! my eyes don’t work as well as they used to what a life saver.

  124. Nancy says:

    Now that I am, ahem, “older” (meaning recently retired!) I find that the stitch line requiring ripping (on an all too frequent basis) eludes me. I know it’s there somewhere, darn it! I think this tool would help me find that elusive line of stitches 🙂

  125. Quilt Hollow says:

    Perfect gift for these tired eyes! It would be great to rip thread not fabric!

  126. Karen O says:

    I have a very hard time seeing anything small like stitches and it is getting worse. I would love Santa to leave me one of these so I don’t have to take my glasses off all the time to see!

  127. I’m definitely at that age where this great tool would come in very handy! Thanks for the chance to win one!

  128. Karen says:

    Wow that is the Mercedes of seam rippers! Being a woman who is just starting to have to wear “cheater” glasses, it would be great to have both magnification and light.

  129. Jagels says:

    unfortunately I really really need this tool. I probably should just buy me one and put it in my own stocking. Would be really cool to win it though. Thanks.

  130. Barbara McD says:

    My old eyes just aren’t what they used to be, so I need this tool to help me “unsew”!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  131. kbzelazny says:

    Wow, so cool! I need this because I make lots of mistakes, and I can’t see! Thanks

  132. My beautilful old eyes would love this terrific tool.

  133. Mimi says:

    Holy smokes this would be a miracle tool for me!! I think there was more than once when I wished I had better lighting and better vision for ripping stitches!!

  134. Amy Losordo says:

    Dear Santa,

    A great excuse to make mistakes…this is a great gadget!

  135. This is on my Christmas wish list, so what a great gift it would be from Moda! I have had 5 eye surgeries in 18 months: 2 for cataracts, 3 for retinal detachments, and 1 for Glaucoma (tube shunt) inserted. So, I don’t see too well and my quilting lines tend to be crooked. What can be even more fun is trying to rip those stitches out. Anyhow, I think this would be an ideal gadget for me so I can continue quilting. Okay, let me get my magnifying glass out now so I can prove I’m not a robot. :o)

  136. BizyStitches says:

    Sorry to have to say this would get a lot of use at my house. Lots of mistakes and I need as much light as I can get to work on things. Thanks.

  137. Prissy says:

    I didn’t know such a tool existed…but now I do and I think it’s wonderful!

  138. Stephanie A says:

    Oh! What a great seam ripper! I’d love to find one in my Christmas stocking, what a boon for tired eyes.

  139. I usually rip seams at night while I watch tv with my hubby and it is always hard to see. I would love to get one of these in my stocking to try out!

  140. Theresa says:

    Dear Santa, As you know today is my 54th birthday and my eyes have really gotten bad. This awesome seam ripper would help me so much.

    Thank you.

  141. GG says:

    At my age, the ripper with magnifier would be very beneficial but add a light, too! Wow!

  142. Anda W says:

    This tool would be perfect for me, I use a simple one alot! awolk at rogers dot com

  143. JJ says:

    I have one of those and it is pretty tricky. It would make a nice stocking stuffer.

  144. marylouc says:

    I do plenty of ripping out, and would give this tool lots of use!

  145. JaneB says:

    I just had a search of the whole sewing room to locate a seam ripper! I promise I’ll take good care of this one, Santa!

  146. Lorna1021 says:

    This gift would be awesome! Please, Santa?

  147. Maria Wallin says:

    What an awesome little tool! I’m totally getting that for my mum for Christmas! Can’t really justify buying one for myself though so maybe Santa would be so kind? 😉

  148. ShirleyC says:

    My poor old eyes could really use this! I seem to have quite a collection of seam rippers! A lighted one would surely help.
    Following your blog.

  149. Nana says:

    Oh the unpicking I could do with a light! Thanks for the opportunity!

  150. Karen says:

    Oh, my eyes definitely need this little goodie. After just having ripped out the squares for an entire table topper (changed my mind), I surely could have used this.

  151. Laura says:

    Hope it’s not too late to enter! i have terrible eyesight, so this seam ripper would be wonderful for me!
