quick un-pick

January 17, 2009 in General, Glossary

A quick un-pick is useful when removing stitching.  Cut every third stitch on one side, then turn the seam over and pull out the thread from the other side.  Use it to open buttonholes: place a pin across one end and cut from the other end up to the pin.
