LOL, I told my daughter just for the fun of it when I die and they are cleaning out my stuff (poor kids) put ALL my scissors in a box. Then they will certainly know I went over the edge long before I died. I do tend to pick up scissors, fabric and quilt magazines and books if I find them at Goodwill or a tag sale. Hmmmm, hoarder???? Maybe in that area. Oh well have fun all and enjoy all your STUFF!

off the top of my head I have 5 for quilting.....and a total of 14+ in the entire house and those are the ones I can locate. I'm sure we have more in school supplies and elsewhere.

I have one pair for fabrics and one small pair for trimming therads. I also have a small pair in my embroidery box. I've been using the same pair of scissors for fabrics for over 15 years and they are still perfect! They aren't Ginghers either.
