Peggy's Stitch Eraser UPDATED

Ann on NP Nation highly recommends Peggy's Stitch Eraser for ripping out basketweave.

These are NOT cheap but if you have a huge project to rip out, it might be worth the investment.  These come in both wireless and corded versions and the cutting heads appear to come in various sizes.  Note that you are supposed to work on the back side and it appears to be easy to cut your canvas as well as the threads.

UPDATE:  Cassandra uses the Stitch Eraser and has some tips if you are interested.  She says, "it’s great ! When you have a large area to rip out as you know will pull the canvas . The Peggy's stitch eraser will not pull ,you don’t get distortion ,it quick.. the careful , keep to the back of the canvas for sure . The lady who introduced me to this used a mushroom shape used for darning to gently work the canvas . All in all a great item .I would test different threads first . just a bit of attention practice on old canvas to get a feel , be careful of thick weighted threads , waxed , Metallics ."
