    do you own for quilting / sewing.
    I have so many Ginghers of all sizes and kinds.
    Is that odd.

    Including the 5 pairs in the kitchen, living room and other appropriate places, I have 12.

    Only 3 for sewing. Don't ask how many dog grooming shears I have, and you don't want to know what they cost either!!

    The up-side is that I attend enough dog shows with shear sharpening services that I can take all my scissors and knives to dog shows for a weekend and they come back sharper :)

    Let's see -
    1, 2, 3, 4,

    yep just 4 for sewing.

    We won't count the total number of scissors I have around the house of all sizes!

    My son counted 16 pairs of scissors in my sewing room just lately and he probably didn't find them all. My excuse is that I run a lot of workshops and teach 4-H and not everybody remembers or has the right tools for the job. I've always loved to cut right from the time I was five and gave my younger sister with the almost waist length curls a very short pixie cut!

    Over a dozen for sewing only. Then the regular kitchen sheers. Plus the ones for scrap-booking, and crafting. Around 36-38 I Guess.

    Isn't that question like asking "how many sewing machines do you have?". I think both are against the law! Too many to count but not enough would be my answer.

    OMGOSH~~~ I forgot about all the scrapbooking ones.
    I have way to many scissors.
    I see the good ones at estate sales cheap and I can't leave them behind.

    Ummmm, uhhhhhh, I don't actually know. There are somewhere around 80 to 90 pairs of scissors in this house but they're not all for sewing. I'd say at least 60 pairs are just for sewing.

    11 pairs of scissors in my sewing room. The scissors in the rest of the house don't count.

    I refuse to find them all to count, but I would guess I have easily over a dozen. I just ordered two more that are Ginghers. I have to give them a try. I've heard lots of good things about them. :)
