I had the opportunity to evaluate the new “Lighted Seam Ripper & Magnifier“, by Mighty Bright and wanted to share insights with you.
This seam ripper is very lightweight and has a comfortable ergometric design. The 4x magnifier is a perfect size to help rip fine threads, and the Mighty Bright LED light really helps to highlight where you want to do some “reverse sewing”. Overall, I found this product very easy to use and definitely easy on the eyes. At a retail price of $9.99 one could also say that this product is easy on the pocket book too!
I believe this seam ripper is going to be very popular with quilting and sewing enthusiasts that have a difficult time seeing threads embedded in seams. But, while this seam ripper does cut threads, the blade is a little too thick and not quite as sharp as other seam rippers, thus this wouldn’t be a seam ripper that I would recommend for machine embroidery enthusiasts. I found the blade on this seam ripper doesn’t work well with dense stitches, as one finds with machine embroidery projects.
