The Wizz Ripper Gripper

Sharyn Craig recommended a new seam ripper, the Wizz Ripper Gripper, in her "Northwinds" class last winter. I wrote to the manufacturers and have really used mine every time I sit down at the sewing machine!

The Wizz Ripper Gripper is a folding seam ripper on a weighted stand. It makes chain piecing a breeze! As you sew, the ripper is very handy, standing upright on your sewing table. When you want to disconnect your "chains" between each pieced unit, you just lower the threads over the Wizz Ripper and, instantly, with minimum effort and movement, they are severed.

The Wizz Ripper also works as an ordinary seam ripper. You just hold it in the palm of your hand, more comfortably than a conventional ripper. Then, it can be used to rip seams and stitching. Another use for the Wizz Ripper Gripper is as a substitute for "finger pressing." It's heavy enough to neatly crease your piecing.

This little tool really saves time and motion. Because it's on a stand, it's always on hand when you need it. No digging through your gadget drawer or even any movement to pick up anything. And, as you chain-piece; all you have to hold are the fabric chains. So, there are no wasted motions.

Ripping is my least favorite sewing task, but the Wizz Ripper Gripper makes ripping easier and faster. It's become my "third hand." Try it and see how it can work for you.
