    Thanks! I found them awkward to use for some reason but I will try them again for cutting applique pieces. A friend uses them for machine embroidery applique and can cut in really close.

    Thanks for taking the time to post this informative video. Exactly what I needed as doing my first collage...

    Love my duck bill scissors for machine applique when doing the machine embroidery. You can get really close to the stitch line.

    I have a pair of Gingher ones. I tried to use them a couple of times but gave up. I will have to get them out and try again since I started to do some machine embroidery.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I have the same ones the that Onebyone has but I never use them. It's probably because I don't applique much Maybe if I ever have a grandchild I'll try them out. I used to when my kids were little.
