    My husband knows better than to use my scissors in fact he never goes into my sewing room without asking me first.

    Yup - my poor hubby always asks before he cuts anything - even if he has the kitchen shears! He trained well.

    Very cute and true.

    I keep my good scissors in a drawer in my sewing room. I have several cheap pairs in a couple rooms, they can be used for other things. They are safe because my Husband doesn't come in here.

    I turned my shed over to my 3 GD's and on the door they put up a sign they made= ' NO BOYS ALLOWED ' So they made me one for the cave When I asked them why they made me a sign too and the chorus said - Daddy broke your scissors -My son will be 39 on Saturday but due to being grounded he gets no Carrot Cake. Momma's can ground their kids as long as we have breath in our lungs.

    My husband has always had a thing about tools. If he needs to borrow any scissors he knows what the need is for. I keep sewing scissors in the sewing room. Paper scissors are in the office. They are all labeled. he just went around and put tags on them. If they get misplaced for any reason, the tag states the use. Any hand embroidery projects always have the little shears in the Ziploc. He has sewn also and knows what can happen.

    I didn't now why we guard our fabric scissors so zealously until I read the following response to that question by Marilyn vos Savant in Parade magazine. Here's her answer:

    "Paper typically contains hard minerals that aren't found in fabric, so cutting even ordinary paper will dull blades more than cutting fabric. Wrapping paper is worse, and holiday wrap with all its foil and sparkly accents may be the most damaging of all. Fabric shears are quickly dulled by using them for household purposes, so hide those shears from the rest of the family! Cutting fabric (and hair, etc.) requires very sharp scissors because the fibers bend and slip away from the blades so easily."
    "I keep my end tables full of needlework and quilting so I don't have to dust them." ~ Author Unknown but I agree!

    my husband does not respect 'don't use my sewing scissors." we have gone around on this for 48 yrs. i have just given up. i just try to hide them, or make sure he has a pair handy.

    I am so lucky my hubby does not bother my quilt stuff or non-quilt stuff. Just had to explain it once about the scissors.

    I got the greatest tip at my LQS today - put a luggage lock on your good fabric scissors when you're not using them! Keeps wondering hands from "borrowing" them for assorted tasks...

    about 30 years ago i got 4 wonderful pairs of scissors --- dressmakers, small embroidery, hair cutting, and kitchen shears. Get this .... i saved box tops from some cereal and then paid maybe 8 dollars. Not sure where the kitchen shears are but the sewing ones are hidden away with my sewing stuff and the hair cutting with the hair clippers. They've never been sharpened and they are still wonderful. I've read about the posts that the new ones aren't as good so I guard them more than ever.
