    I easily have 6-8 pairs of sewing scissors. The ones that don't sharpen any more go to be used at school........I'm a teacher..........or get trashed.

    1 pair of shears, pinking shears, curved embroidery snips, rag quilt snips, spring-loaded rag quilt snips, and several pairs of little scissors for trimming threads.

    Wow, more than I realized. But too many compared to some of you! lol

    I have adraw full of sewing scissors, but can never find any when I go to look for them. They must be related to my rotary cutter, because it keeps getting lost as well.

    I wonder why it is that when we only have one of something we will always know where it is like a dog on a bone...however if we own lots we can never find them...

    Let's see - 3 or 4 pairs of kid scissiors for snipping ends (cheap, sharp enough), one pinking, one Gingher fabric shears, one cheap paper shears (for paper piecing), two that were gifted to me. So at least 8 in my sewing room(s).

    No Way!!! Get the light weight shears that gingher has for about $20.00 or $10 if you have a 50% off coupon at Joann's

    Let's see, I have about 20 pairs of Gingher embroidery scissors, 2 pairs of Gingher dressmaker shears, 3 pairs of Dovos, and a beautiful pair of Maison Sajou embroidery scissors I got to put in a needlebook/embroidery case once I finished embroidering it.

    I am a scissor whore. I have to have one in each embroidery project I in the works. I'm bad, I know.

    You are all scissor junkies.....I don't know how many I have and I probably couldn't find them all if I tried. There seems to be one pair in each UFO stack.....I don't know why....

    I'm not even sure I know how many I have...I'd have to go count them. I have A LOT! Scissors just for fabric, scissors I cut thread with, scissors I use to cut paper, kitchen scissors, craft scissors, applique scissors, pinking shears, scrapbooking scissors and, of course, my rotary cutters...all sizes - tiny, small, medium and large!

    It doesn't matter if I have 10 or 5 I can never find them when I need them! I have to wear them around my neck like my glasses when I sew. LOL

    I think if I counted mine, I might be embarrassed. But, I always buy Mundial or Clause 5" embroidery scissors when they are 50% off at Hancock's!! I LOVE those scissors for sewing and applique!
