    Cool

    years ago one of the males in my house cut wire with my favorite Ginghers....heads rolled! Of course nobody did it! I have since bought a couple other pairs in the flowery print Ginghers, they don't touch those, too girly.

    We have tons of scissors hanging around, mostly for paper and one nice set for my fabric (so far). Then my DH bought a pair just for him to use on his projects. They showed up with a nick in them and he assumed I used them for cutting a wire or something! LOL as if I didn't know better. I'd be upset if he used my fabric pair for the same thing. So now we both keep an eye on each other I guess.

    Thanks for the tip. And my husband is a lefty. I'll just have to get him his own.

    I am going to go find a pair of these for back up's shears.

    My husband & or kids have gotten hold of a few to many pairs of my sewing shears & rendered them use less for fabric. no amount of threats have stopped them. So now I never ever leave them in the sewing room where all the other shears are in plain view. They are well hidden & only come out when I am cutting out a project, then they are hidden away again.

    I've looked online and cannot find "wallpaper scissors"
    Did find a manufacturer who takes minimum order of 6k?
    What's the brand of your scissors?

    Those locks that you put on your suitcase when flying (TSA approved) would also work well. I think I'll stop in my local wallpaper store soon. Thanks.

    In my house everyone knows the unspoken rule "dont touch mums scissors or else!" I have paper and fabric scissors and one pair for everyone else.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    Where did you get wallpaper scissors? I suppose I could google it, but folks on this board know the best places to buy everything! What a price, too!!
