    Caught My Husband Cutting With my Sewing Scissors!

    Hubby put some shelves up in my sewing room earlier today. He helped me put a small storage shelf together for FQs and charm packs. We had the box from the shelf after we put it together. I turned around and saw him cutting the cardboard box with my scissors! And the scissors are specifically marked "sewing only"! I just about freaked, and tried to nicely suggest another pair of scissors he could use. He must have known he was wrong because he didn't say a word and normally he would!

    I feel your pain. They weren't used for anything but fabric, but my daughter dropped them on the kitchen floor and put a small chip in the blade.

    My son used my dressmaker scissors to cut his model plane pieces apart and then used them to take screw out of some something he working on and broke about 1/4" off the point. This happened about 15 years ago. It took me awhile before I could call him anything but "that boy".

    My DH was well trained before I got him. He knows sewing scissors are not to touch anything other than fabric! Never have those issues. Other issues...won't even start!

    That requires some apology in the form of a more expensive pair of scissors that'll teach him

    Mine had to buy me a new pair of Gingher's since he decided to ruin mine....He was lucky I didn't string him up by his thumbs.

    I had mentioned in another similar thread that mine used my fabric scissors to cut the grips off his golf clubs.
