    Or buy a small metal tool box with a place to put a lock. Keeps predators out for sure.

    Cool

    years ago one of the males in my house cut wire with my favorite Ginghers....heads rolled! Of course nobody did it! I have since bought a couple other pairs in the flowery print Ginghers, they don't touch those, too girly.

    We have tons of scissors hanging around, mostly for paper and one nice set for my fabric (so far). Then my DH bought a pair just for him to use on his projects. They showed up with a nick in them and he assumed I used them for cutting a wire or something! LOL as if I didn't know better. I'd be upset if he used my fabric pair for the same thing. So now we both keep an eye on each other I guess.

    Thanks for the tip. And my husband is a lefty. I'll just have to get him his own.

    I am going to go find a pair of these for back up's shears.

    My husband & or kids have gotten hold of a few to many pairs of my sewing shears & rendered them use less for fabric. no amount of threats have stopped them. So now I never ever leave them in the sewing room where all the other shears are in plain view. They are well hidden & only come out when I am cutting out a project, then they are hidden away again.

    I've looked online and cannot find "wallpaper scissors"
    Did find a manufacturer who takes minimum order of 6k?
    What's the brand of your scissors?

    Those locks that you put on your suitcase when flying (TSA approved) would also work well. I think I'll stop in my local wallpaper store soon. Thanks.

    In my house everyone knows the unspoken rule "dont touch mums scissors or else!" I have paper and fabric scissors and one pair for everyone else.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    Mine are WalWorks Comfort Grip US pat436816 good luck these are about 6 to 7 yrs old. I'm sure you could find something similar. Good Luck!

    Scissors make the cut
    WalWorks, a division of Zinsser Co., has introduced ComfortGrip Scissors, a new line developed specifically for use on wallcovering, window treatments, upholstery, fabric and craft products. The scissors, crafted from the finest precision steel, are keenly honed to handle the most delicate wallpaper. The substantial blades and adjustable tension also make them ideal for use on thick commercial vinyl and textile wallcoverings, string and grass cloth wallcoverings, heavy-weight upholstery materials including leather, canvas and burlap, and all decorator fabrics. ComfortGrip Scissors are uniquely crafted with slip-resistant cushioned grips and ambidextrous handles with extra-large finger loops. They are available in two blade sizes 9.5" and 11" with design features specifically styled for wallpaper and fabric projects.

    A pad lock through the finger holes will prevent scissors from opening, Can't open can't cut. carry key on car keys which are always in my pocket. Spare key hidden. Fabric only.

    My mother took a class on upholstery and purchased their recommended upholstery scissors. She has since passed away and as the only daughter they came to me. I use them for cutting batting off the roll and for trimming excess batting and fabric from quilts after I have finished quilting them. They are large enough to handle the job easily and hold a sharp edge.

    I have some walworks comfort grips that was given to me from a dear passing SIL's husband.. She quilted and he knew the value and quality of his wife's scissors. She had them for years.
