I just went and purchased a pair of spring scissors because my hand was killing me and getting blisters from using my normal scissors to cut up my rag quilt. So I got maybe three whole rows done and now they don't cut threw the fabric anymore. They went from cutting like a hot knife threw butter to trying to cut a loaf of bread with a butter knife. Guess I'll be bring them back to Walmart as they didn't last as long as they should. Just thought I'd share.
