    Best Snipping Scissors?

    I've been snipping the curved edges of heart-shaped appliques, until my hand feels as if it's going to fall off. Any advice, on the best spring-loaded snippers? Will go to Hobby Lobby tomorrow, with a 40% off coupon. Am willing to go elsewhere for them, if it's worthwhile. Thanks!

    Here are my favorite two:

    This Heritage snip is fantastic for small snips and it is "spring" loaded. You can slide the "spring" out of the way when you store it. I always hang it around my neck when I sew.

    My fav applique scissors are these Havel serrated scissors (you can not see the serations on the fabric after cutting with them) . The serration makes a clean clear cut and are fantastically easy to cut complicated appliques with.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks so much, for the advice! I'll see if Hobby Lobby has either of those; if not, I'll try to hold out, until Amazon.com can come through for me.
