Unfortunately I have had lots of practice ripping out seams. I have to agree with you on this tecnique being the best and the easiest.

I think it's great if the stitches are large enough. If the stitches are small, separate the layers and remove stitches one by one. If you have used cotton thread, scratch the thread toward the end of the line of stitching, pull and break it; turn over scratch it up and break the thread. Polyester thread will not break. My mother taught this method 65 years ago.

Thank you for making this video! I did not realize the proper way to rip out a seam. It would take me forever and I also got frustrated. :)

Thank you so much for this!!! I took a quilting class once and the instructor tore out some stitches for me with the method you just used. Unfortunately, she never showed me how to do it!!! So, for years I've been wondering how she did it, and noone's been able to tell me! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! You just made my life a whole lot easier!!!
