I know there are lots of choices in scissors out there in all price ranges. I've tried them all and have found you don't have to spend a fortune to get a really great, long lasting pair of scissors for applique and embroidery. I use these every day and have for many years.
Many of you had a difficult time locating the scissors I used in my hand applique video. They were the best I could find at the time and since then I've searched high and low for something I liked equally well. I ordered and tried scissors from no less than 6 designers and manufacturers and am thrilled to tell you I found one I love, love, love. I'm really fussy about my tools - here's what make makes these a winner -
These scissors are engineered for smooth precise cutting with fine teeth serration for gripping fabrics. An excellent choice for doing embroidery, patchwork, applique, sewing, quilting and needlepunch. Includes a molded plastic blade cover.
