On the 8th Day of Christmas…

We posted this bad boy on the blog last month and it was such a hit that we decided it needs to be in EVERY quilters stocking this Christmas!
This nifty Seam Ripper with LED Magnifier is considered the new secret weapon of quilters, sewers and embroiderers!

Here is some info about this cool little gadget…

 Mighty Bright’s innovative model integrates both a light and a magnifier into one cleverly compact unit. The seam ripper features a sharp metal blade that unfolds from the main handle. It allows you to tackle seams and buttons with a genius combination of illumination and magnification.
A 1.25″ lens quadruples the image size of your blade and stitch. The enlarged area is brightened by an energy-efficient LED, bringing details into sharp focus. Its ergonomically shaped handle offers a comfortable grip as you rip, snip and cut away. Durable ABS plastic construction and three micro cell batteries keep the weight at a minimum. The Seam Ripper is an incredible value for a slender dynamo. It fits nicely into any sewing kit, until you’re ready to get down to business ripping seams!

  1. Why haven’t I heard of this? I so need one of these. I’m forever holding my stitching up to the light on my machine so I can rip the stitches out!! That’s why santa needs to bring me one… I rip a lot of stitches out 🙁

  2. Wow, I haven’t seen this before. Whoever designed it really thought it through. How incredibly helpful for those of us who need the seam ripper frequently : )

  3. This tool is new to me. As my eyes get older, not that I am getting older don’t ya know, seeing clearly is somtimes an issue. This would make sewing more enjoyable as I “seam” to need to rip a seam now and again.

  4. My sewing machine dealer introduced us to this notion and sold out immediately! I got one on the second order she placed and absolutely love it! The light is very bright. The cutter is sharp! There is a nice cover for the tip!

  5. what a fantastic little tool, it’s like the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ for those who sew!
    I’d like Santa to bring me this as a stocking stuffer as I think’s it’s really cool & I’ve been a very good girl this year

  6. Ripping out is my most UNfavorite thing EVER~! Partially because it is such a strain on my eyes to see what I’m doing– this lighted magnifier seam ripper might just make a dreaded chore actually kinda fun! 😉 Thank you for giving us a chance to win!! 🙂

  7. I had to sign in but probably lost my Frogging post. I was unknown> Queen of Frogging. Rats!!

    I am the consummate ripper always having a seam ripper at my disposal.

  8. I really could have used this tool yesterday sewing knits. I had to rip out some stitching and the thread matched so well I couldn’t see the stitches. Blah! what a cool tool…love it! I’m a follower as WeimerMom. 🙂 Kd

  9. Since my theory behind ripping seams is that once the quilt is sewn together and the mistake can still be seen THEN it deserves to be ripped out (now of course there are exceptions to this rule) I generally rip a GREAT DEAL when I do rip….therefore, I NEED a good seam ripper and this seems like just the one.

  10. What a great tool, we all “Rippit” and I’m always lookng for my seam ripper. This is large enough that I might not lose it, as everything seems to roll away.

  11. That’s a good deal at 9.99 but even better if Santa puts in my stocking! My sewing corner has poor lighting and an extra spotlight on my ripping would be a big bonus.

  12. I need this because I am 54 and have the older people’s eye going on with bifocals and contacts and can’t focus good !!! thanks ! I just posted on yesterday’s giveaway thinking it was today — haha !

  13. I know I am not perfect and too often end up needing to rip out a seam. This tool would be ideal as my eyes are not what they used to be!

  14. This would be sooooo helpful to my mid-40’s, “I don’t need glasses”, “I’m not squinting”, “What thread?” eyes…LOL! Thanks for the great giveaways!

  15. My eyes are certainly not what they used to be, so as much as I hate to rip out, I do it & this would be so handy to use.

  16. I need this in my stocking! I’m blind as a bat without my glasses and could use all the help i can get. Plus i just love new toys for sewing. 🙂

  17. This is the greatest thing since sliced bread! Keep ’em coming! Love the ease of use and love gadgets especially when they make things easier,.

  18. What a wonderful gadget! I need this since I can’t see things without my contacts or glasses. This would be so helpful.
    I follow your blog already.

  19. Neat gadget! But, I think someone else should get this should my name be drawn. So, please redraw. I’m just hoping to win the grand prize. 🙂

  20. WOW!! If I don’t win, I’m going to order and stick it in my stocking anyway on my own. This is a super cool gadget. Santa needs to bring this to me as my seam ripper and I are BFFs. LOL!!

  21. Why would I want one of these? It’s more like why wouldn’t I? Sewing or making quilt tops, we all need to remove seams at times and can be really frustrating when thread and fabric match. The little light and magnifier would be oh so handy!

  22. Wow. I need Santa to leave this in my stocking because my eyes are getting older and it is hard to see something so small! Thank you for the chance to win something so useful.

  23. Dear Santa, it’s not that I make mistakes or my eyesight is getting worse, I just think I might be able to use this…someday :)!!

  24. Just what my 55+ year old eyes need to do reverse stitching with. I will make sure to ask my other Santa for one just in case I am not the lucky stitcher.

  25. what a great idea! A light AND a magnifying glass on a seam ripper. If Santa brings me this, I won’t have to carry my frog-stitching projects into the other room and sit under the lamp and leave little threads all over the couch!

  26. Oh my goodness – that is just about the coolest tool I have seen! This is an amazing stocking stuffer – I would love to add it to my “go to” tools!! Brilliant…

  27. I would love to find this tool in my stocking this year. It seems to be getting harder to see those tiny stitches & this would be a wonderful addition to my sewing supplies.


  28. Oh – i need this so i can use that lens with my glasses when i go to renew my drivers license – i need to stay mobile so i can make it to Joanns -lol

  29. As a beginning quilter I know that ripping out seams neatly is a must! I truly feel I really need this tool to do a great job on my quilt projects! I love the idea of the lighted magnifier, my eyes would be grateful to you!

  30. I can never find my seam ripper–this one looks big enough I might be able to keep track of it–the easy on the eyes helps too! 🙂

  31. My seam ripper is my favorite sewing tool, that is until my son used it to dig up a certain rock. Now it just stands as a reminder to why we love them. right?

  32. This looks like a super tool – as I had a significant birthday last year and it seems a little harder to see those details than it used to!

  33. This would be wonderful in my poorly lit crafting space! I usually end up walking over to a window to get good light to see what I am doing 🙂

  34. My sewing room doesn’t have the best light, and this would be good for those FEW occasions when I make a sewing mistake! Kathie L in Allentown

  35. I hate to admitt it, but this tool would be very useful at my house. The eyes aren’t what they used to be and un-sewing is not pleasant!

  36. Santa should REALLY bring me this stocking stuffer because he knows in my haste lately, I have been making extra mistakes that take TOO long to unsew because my eyes aren’t as good as they used to be.

  37. Wow – dear, dear Santa, I NEED this one! No, no, I am perfect and don’t make any mistakes (wink, wink!) – I just need to have all the coolest gadgets! 😉

  38. “As you sew, so shall you rip” LOL

    Just qualified for my 1st pair of reading glasses this year – magnified seam ripper would be AWESOME (maybe I could even skip the glasses!)

  39. As much as I need this – I want it for my secret Santa gift to Linda A. in our ‘over 50’ sewing group. This is a terrific idea – Love it. (I’ll be sure to buy mine – my old eyes need it too.) Joyce

  40. I’ve been hearing some rave reviews about this magnified, lighted, unsewer!! Santa KNOWS I could put this wonderful device to good use.

  41. Oh my gosh….

    You don’t know how often I use my seam ripper – I even have two of them…

    It would be great to have this one – either to use it, or, to follow Murphy’s Law, and don’t need to use it any longer.


  42. I couldn’t think of a more perfect tool ~ especially as often as I seem to need a seam ripper (AND my reading glasses AND better light!) Thanks for the chance to win (fingers crossed!!)

  43. Although I am getting younger with each passing hour, my eyes are not going along with the rest of my organs. They are aging at 10x factor in relation to the rest of my bodies’ rejuvenation.

    In other words: I can’t see worth a hoot, so I need this badly!

  45. I am a follower and I need Santa to put this in my stocking cause everyone needs a new seam ripper every so often & this one is super nice!!

  46. What a brilliant new notion!!! I’d love to give this one a try. My seam ripper is used a great day. Definitely could use the light and magnifying glass:) Thanks for highlighting this product!

  47. I really need a secret weapon in my sewing room as i get older i need that light and magnifying glass eve more. It would fit nicely in my stocking.

  48. I’m a relative quilting beginner and already, much to my dismay, I’ve learned that ripping out threads is mostly a fact of life. Man, do I need one of these!

  49. Hi!
    This great little seam ripper will make my life sew much easier I will be able to put off getting new bifocals!!!!
    Thanks for the Giveaway!
    Take care, Leslie

  50. Santa, this would be a nice new quilting tool that would get lots of use. As we all have to do some frog sewing… Rippity Rip Rip! Thanks! 🙂

  51. I’d like this piece but to give as a stocking stuffer for my mom. I think she would really appreciate how much easier it would be to see those stitches!

  52. Oh yes I can use one of these! I won’t have to sit on the floor under the lamp with a magnify glass in one hand, a seam ripper in the other and an extra pair of glasses on!!!!!

  53. Oh, boy what a great notion for those over worked stitching/quilting eyes -and who doesn’t have to SOME amount of reverse sewing. Would be front and center in my tool cup for sure!!!

  54. I am a follower and agree that every quilter should have one of these. I know that I just can’t see as well as I used to and would so appreciate owning one of these myself.

  55. What an awesome tool! I need Santa to bring me one because in the couple of years since I turned fifty they’ve started making needle eyes and print on packages and so many things so much smaller. The light and magnifier would sure make my life a lot easier!
    Merry Christmas!

  56. Unfortunately I find myself having to “unsew” more often than I care to admit and my eyes aren’t what they use to be so I think this cool item will be just the thing the make my “unsewing” easier!! 🙂

  57. I’d like this lighted seam ripper because – it should make it easier to perform a boring task and save on the old eye strain. And I’m all for both of these!

  58. How the heck did I miss this the FIRST time you posted about it?? I would LOVE to have one in my stocking! The older I get the harder it is for me to see the little stitches I need to rip, s this would be perfect!

    Sandy A

  59. What a neat little gadget! I agree with most of the posts I need this getting close to the big 5-0 and it is harder to see those tiny stitches!

  60. I found a small pair of scissors with an optional magnifying glass, but this surpasses that notion. This would be perfect for the dark fabrics and thread; black and black especially.

  61. I’ve never seen this tool before, how wonderful! I certainly can use all the help I can get since my vision is not what it use to be!

  62. Why do I want this gadget? BecauseI’m finally admitting that I’m getting older… And need it more often 🙂 thanks for the chance!

  63. I’m a follower, and like everyone on here, I NEED and WANT this! I have to keep buying stronger reading glasses just to use for ripping out seams and doing hand sewing.
    Ripping out machine embroidery is the hardest. This is just a must have tool for me because I’m always ripping! LOL

  64. Seam rippers work hard in my house (lol) so a seam ripper with a magnifying glass would be very much appreciated by this short sighted stitcher. I am already a Follower of this inspirational blog too.

  65. Oh the visual challenges that age brings.. one day you can read that fine print, and thread that needle and the next.. POOF.. how does that work??

  66. At 62 I can use all the help I can get – especially when I flub my stitching during a senior moment! Santa, I really need this in my stocking this year *Ü*

  67. I just got back into quilting and sewing after many years away from it. I am doing a lot of seam ripping and these old, tired eyes could sure use this product. 🙂
