"This is the best tool for quilting and sewing that I have bought. It fits easily into my sewing box doesn't roll off the table when I need it and elimates the need to carry and store all those fiddly seam rippers pressers etc. The quality of the seam ripper, stiletto, presser, and wood is superb it's a beautiful tactile tool and as a bonus looks gorgeous."

“If you've got lots of little tools rolling around on your sewing table, then reach for this new gadget from Alex Anderson. It features Bernina's sharp seam ripper for fast “unsewing” and a long stiletto that protects your fingers while you're machine piecing or pressing. Use the flat end for finger pressing a seam or a pleat, or flip it over and use the pointed end to turn bias tubes or to shape the corners and curves of appliqué patches. Plus, its handy square barrel keeps it from rolling off your sewing table.”
Review Quilter's Home - June 1, 2010
“There's nothing like a celebrity endorsement to speed a product along to gotta-have-it status. And in this case, you really gotta have it. One of our fave stitch-gals, Alex Anderson, offers up her 4-in-1 Essential Sewing Tool made by C&T Publishing. It's a seam ripper, stiletto, presser and turner. It's like MacGyver does quilting! The pimp wooden handle has caps covering each sharp end, and the seam ripper is so sweet it could practically cut rope. And the super-sized handle makes it a lot easier to use than those dwarf rippers you got off your local store's notions wall. Pick up a couple - your home sewing room and your work-shop kit, natch - and thank us later.”

The seam ripper, By Bernia, has a thin point and an extra sharp blade to cut away your unwanted stiches without damaging your fabric.
