    Caught My Husband Cutting With my Sewing Scissors!

    Hubby put some shelves up in my sewing room earlier today. He helped me put a small storage shelf together for FQs and charm packs. We had the box from the shelf after we put it together. I turned around and saw him cutting the cardboard box with my scissors! And the scissors are specifically marked "sewing only"! I just about freaked, and tried to nicely suggest another pair of scissors he could use. He must have known he was wrong because he didn't say a word and normally he would!

    I feel your pain. They weren't used for anything but fabric, but my daughter dropped them on the kitchen floor and put a small chip in the blade.

    My son used my dressmaker scissors to cut his model plane pieces apart and then used them to take screw out of some something he working on and broke about 1/4" off the point. This happened about 15 years ago. It took me awhile before I could call him anything but "that boy".

    My DH was well trained before I got him. He knows sewing scissors are not to touch anything other than fabric! Never have those issues. Other issues...won't even start!

    That requires some apology in the form of a more expensive pair of scissors that'll teach him

    Mine had to buy me a new pair of Gingher's since he decided to ruin mine....He was lucky I didn't string him up by his thumbs.

    I had mentioned in another similar thread that mine used my fabric scissors to cut the grips off his golf clubs.

    This is called marriage. Go buy yourself another pair. He'll appreciate your being quiet.

    Despite years of warnings & threats, I had to resort to hiding my sewing scissors so DH & kids would not use them. I think I have a couple of extra pair well hiden in the house that may be discovered some day - I forget where I put them

    I caught mine cutting thick moose hide leather with mine. Him and a buddy were making a black powder pouch. I made him buy me a new pair. That was 30 years ago and he still won't touch a pair of scissors without asking if it's ok to use them for his intended purpose. lol

    I actually solved this problem YEARS ago ---- I went to a "cheap" store and bought lots of those $3.00 a pair scissors. Stashed them all over the house and told them they could use whatever scissors they wanted EXCEPT the ones in my sewing room. No more problems......... Just an idea. I LOVE these responses, folks!

    As long as I keep the everyday scissors in the right places, I have nothing to worry about!

    Found my Gingher scissors in the kitchen. I'm not sure what the stuff was on the blades - some sort of dried food??? I won't divorce him for that, just cleaned them up and hid them in my sewing room. There are other things that he's done that might have been cause for divorce - won't say what he put in the dishwasher, but I almost made him buy me a new one. I did run about half a gallon or a gallon of bleach through it (several wash cycles) before I'd put dishes in it again.

    I made my DH read through all of these responses. It has reinforced the FEAR of ever touching my scissors! He is even afraid to enter my sewing room in case he touches something he shouldn't!

    My DDIL has just started sewing, and I severely warned her husband (my son) to NEVER use her sewing scissors, for ANYTHING! She thanked me for that!
