Using a mans battery powered mustache trimmer unsews so much faster than a seam ripper, especially on those long strips. The only drawback is that everyone knows you messed up when they hear the buzzing!  I use the seam ripper for the first few stitches, gently pull apart and let the trimmer do the work. Keep pulling apart gently & just slide the trimmer along.

I have frogged plenty but never shaved the stitches away yet. I'll keep it in mind for big jobs.

I'm frogging, too, still, but DH has hid the mustache trimmer from me...guess I'll need to go out and buy my own.

There is such a thing as "The Quick Ripper" made by a company in New Mexico. I bought one at my LQS and love it! Check it out before you purchase.

I love mine. She shows in a video how it works.

Oh, sure...   everyone here laughed when I posted the picture of the Wahl mustache trimmer I purchased at a quilt expo last winter.  It seems they are now all the rage!   The gals here at the quilt retreat I'm attending right now keep borrowing mine.  LOL

I remember Nancy...LOL!  It was a lot of fun giving you a hard time about that mustache trimmer...ROFLOL!  I just think it is hilarious how Wahl has managed  to "re-purpose" their left-over "out-of-fashion" mustache trimmers to the delight of thousands of quilters.

Yep, I did that once when I tried to hurry.  Honestly, I don't use mine much unless I have a LOT to unsew.
