    If you mean pinking shears, I have a pair but rarely use them. Basically all my cutting is done with my rotary cutter. The pinking shears I got years ago to use in a craft project that wanted the zig-zag edge on the fabric squares. I wonder if any of our board members use them. Oh, I remember some cut the fabric edges with them, saying that when they wash their fabrics later, the fabric doesn't fray or fray as much. Cost for a good pair ranges around $40 I believe at a Jo-Ann's store.

    I have pinking shears from way back, when we "had" to have them.
    I don't know when they were last used.

    When I really think I need them, I take out my rotary cutter that has the pinking shear blade!
    Much easier for the operator to use!
    Sew many ideas ... just sew little time!!

    I have a pair of pinking shears , rarely use them. They do cost a fortune to get sharpened , any many professional sharpeners will not touch a pair of pinking shears.
    You can do an internet search for Ginger pinking shears.
