I use a quick unpick but anything sharp will do.

I got mine from a sewing place some years back, I think it was the Prym brand. Have seen them since too, try quilting shops as they tend to have the more unusual tools

I got mine from Fabric Vision (clearance stock). Actually, I think Charles Parsons have them in their catalogue, but you need a minimum $50 order for a cash purchase (I was just in there on Tuesday, not planning on needing anything else in a hurry)

Are you supposed to pop holes in things before snapping? (or is this just for pliers?) :oops: :oops:

it does look nicer and sit flatter if you make the hole first when you also use the snap press as well but not needed if that makes sense
