Orlan Johnson "Wooden Seam Ripper" at the Joyful Jewel 6-20-14

Wooden Seam Ripper
Orlan Johnson

Since someone just now asked, "What is a seam ripper?" I thought to feature this handy tool made by woodworker Orlan Johnson today.  When he first brought a few of these into the Joyful Jewel I mentioned that no one would know what they were.  I was wrong.  A lot of folks, apparently, still sew.  And they are certainly happy to have this tool with its easy to hold handle ready to rip out errant seams.  It works on those that make your pants too short, when you need to let the waist out a little, or when you need to remove just a few stitches to change direction.  Beautiful to look at and of great utility -- what more could we want from a tool. Good job Orlan!
