    I don't let scissor use frustrate me. That causes stress and stress is super bad for your health. If for some reason a pair won't cut like I want, I buy a new pair and forget it.
    Got fabric?

    I keep a pair of paper cutting scissors next to the computer in the living room.

    The rest are kept in my sewing area, and any fabric items to be cut are brought to me...

    many years ago we had a lock on the freezer door and I would put my sewing scissors in the freezer - so no one would use them... it worked for many years.. I still have those scissors and still use them...

    I know exactly who messes up my scissors------------and she's sitting in this computer chair.

    I get in a hurry and won't look for the junk scissors.

    DH came into my studio today and picked up my sissors that I keep next to machine. He was going to open a box with them. He dropped them quickly when he saw the look he got. Then he walked the 5 steps to get the correct ones. Think he's done that before??
    Happy Quilting.

    I live on my own and have green handled scissors for the kitchen all others are for sewing. Do other people have the problem at classes. I can guarantee that when I sit near a person with a pair like mine I always end up with a blunt pair when I get home or no pair. Rotary cutters have the same problems.
