We Rip What We Sew

Why do we need these?
 Many of my sewing students are appalled when they see my numerous seam rippers. One of the concepts that I explain in the first few classes is that if they want to sew, they have to rip!
I have noticed in life that most lessons are learned only after a bit of pain. Sewing is no different. The time ripping out improper stitching gives us an opportunity to think of ways to do better the next time. Over the years I have actually come to enjoy my time with a seam ripper. No matter how much skill we acquire there will always be a need for ripping that which we have sewn!
