    Best darn scissors ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm left handed & I have every kind of scissors known to man, almost. For cutting yardage these are my all time favorite.
    Wallpaper scissors, they cut fabric and paper. You get them at the paint supply stores for around $8.00 to $10.00.

    These same scissors have served me well for 7 years! Never needs sharpening!!!

    Don't even try to sharpen, the scissors marked for paper only is my attempt to sharpen a dent out of the cutting blade WHERE SOMEONE OTHER THAN ME...tried to cut wire, I'm guessing. They won't cut fabric now, but will cut paper perfectly.

    Since there are just two of us living in this house, I'm watching him

    I guard my scissors like crazy. It became a family joke so my christmas stocking was stuffed with all kinds of scissors. You would think we can keep track of them...not so much. There is four of us in the house and I have grown a pair of eyes on the back of my head and still I find my scissors in the weirdest places (when I do not need them). I am seriously contemplating one of those baby locks with alarm for my sewing drawer.

    I just bought myself a pair of Gingher's and dare anyone to use them for anything (including fabric).

    Tashana - skip the baby lock. Just buy a cheap combination padlock. Loop it though the handles and don't tell ANYONE else the combination.
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"
