    Found at an unusual place.

    Went to a Dog show in Detroit on Saturday. I love dogs so I was in heaven, As I was walking around and looking at the dogs and booths of stuff for sale found a bunch of Fiskar scissors for sale, 2.00 each YIPPEE, I bought a pair on ebay for 6.00 and thought it was a deal. Needless to say I bought 10 pair. I am forever misplacing my utility scissors and will NOT use my Ginghers, for every day stuff. People must have thought I was crazy, but I was so happy, I am assuming they were there for dog groomers, but hey the 10 pair I bought didn't even dent his supply

    You are so right,I have warned every body,don't touch my ginghers, I even told my daughter who to give them to if I die, so they will get a big kick out of my stash of fiskars,they will think I am a hoarder of scissors

    Good scissors are such a blessing. I have trained my husband to keep away from my fabric scissors! He has his own pair of cheapies for cutting his coupons and other stuff...

    I keep a supply of kids fiskars for everything but cutting fabric and sometimes I will even snip that with them.

    I have many pairs of scissors myself my DH is always needing them. He gets a little frustrated when I say "What are you going to use them for?" And I hound him to get them back. My Cutco kitchen shears were always disappearing till I had a screaming fit...now they leave them alone! I told him that I'm gonna start going thru his tools and taking what I want and not put it back!! LOL

    I don't think a sewist can have too many scissors! Wish I was there for the deal too!
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    my mom was in a nursing home, and she loved to crochet and do hand work. She has sissors tied on every door knob, dresser pull, chairs, etc. It was hard for her to get up and around, so she kept things handy and within arms reach. She loved sissors. Kids still joke about the sissors tied to everything. I am beginning to think like that myself!

    I have fiskars marked 'fabric only', 'paper/batting', and then i have Wiss Shears from 1956, Wiss tailor points from 1958, an even Wiss utility sissors from 1944 (all i wanted for my fifth birthday was a pair of good sissors, according to family 'legends' i was quite outspoken about it). Sissors are right up there with the wheel on the good for mankind list.

    LOL, I'm doing things backward--I do use my palm-held thread snips to get behind burrs tangled in my shaggy terriers' coats. They don't have to see me coming at them with bigger scissors and the points make it easier to get in behind the burr and cut it with minimum hair loss. Dog hair doesn't seem to damage the scissors.
