    Hi to everyone - I am new to the board and have been going through all the wonderful comments. My question is this - I do a lot of applique and have several scissors but none that I just love for the small cuts (sharp points) and that is comfortable for a lengthy period of time. Does anyone have just a good favorite for applique?
    Thanks for all your help in advance!
    Deb

    Welcome to the board. I do not applique, so I can't offer any help to you there. I'm sure others will chime in here with just the answer you need. Keep posting!

    Welcome! Good question. I have a pair of super sharp Fiskars snips with rubbery, spring-loaded handles. Verycomfortable. Only drawback is that they are so sharp as to be a bit dangerous and it's too easily to cut what you don't intend to cut.

    I have a pair of Fiskars titanium that are very sharp all the way to the tip. They are small. I also have a small pair that I bought at the LQS but I don't know the name. They are almost like nail scissors.
