But not so glad I need it as often as I do.
It seems that most of the times I use it, is to repair piss poorly put stitched together items. Just got through finishing off the end of a zipper on a laundry bag, and stitching the zipper and fabric together. This is the 6th one repaired, and two I had to toss because the zipper head came off.
Now, I know these didn’t cost a small fortune (only $6 for a pair) but if you get them, use them once or twice, then they fall apart, and you get more, the cost can add up quickly.
And it’s not just laundry bags. I’ve had to re-seam shirts, dresses, ‘delicate underthings’. Wear once, wash once, repair.
