Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Will definitely look into the wallpaper scissors. Thanks for the tip!
"Greater is He that is in me, then he that is in the world"
thinks for the info...I am always looking for a good pair of long lasting scissors.
I thought you were supposed to cut wallpaper with a paring knife? Stick the putty knife into the fold at the ceiling, and then cut with a paring knife...I guess I've been doing it the wrong way, LOL. I tried regular cheap scissors on wallpaper, didn't work. I'll have to get a pair of these.

Another inexpensive trick for those that are living with significant others and children. I went to the dollar store and bought a BUNCH of scissors. Look like my sewing scissors but are $1. I put them EVERYwhere in the house. In the kitchen, in the desk, by the computer. I even put a nail in the kitchen wall and hung a pair of kitchen scissors on it. You use it and then hang it back on the nail. It sure did help. I did this after hiding my good sewing scissors and then couldn't find where I hid them. hahaha. They did show up months later after buying more scissors. lol
I recently bought a tool box and added a Master Lock with key. This was after DD used scissors to cut photographs. Talk about dull-fabric just slides to the side.
I went onto eBay and replaced the scissors that were ruined. I love my little tool box, but since I bought it I see Sears has pink toolboxes. That may be on my Christmas list.
Thanks for the tip. I guarded my scissors and yet my husband used my best shears to cut insulation- fiberglass no less. He learned his lesson though when he had to replace my shears and set him back $35 in 70s $$. No longer married LOL!!! Now when I sew I know my scissors will be where I put them and in the condition I left them. Never heard of wallpaper scissors before your tip. I always learn stuff on this board. It's the best.
me too scissor guard. let them buy you new fabric scissors and they usually ask first (not really)just have an abundance of dollar store scissors on the magnetic strip
