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 -

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!
