    scissors

    I'm in desperate need of new sewing scissors. Does anyone have a particular favorite? Oh and by the way I want to thank everyone for their machine quilting tips. Just finished my first project, a few irregularities, but overall a success.

    I recently ordered some Kai scissors and they are wonderful and very reasonably priced.

      I have a 7" pair of Clovers for snipping threads, they are handy to keep by the machine, much lighter than the ginghers.

          I LOVE Gingher scissors! They are very spendy, but are awesome! You can get them at Joann's and use a 50% of coupon.

              Gingher scissors. I have two that I've had for years and they still cut great - I only use them for fabric and hide them so no one can accidentally use them for something else. Plus - they're quality scissors and can be sharpened if needed.

                I also have a pair of Kai's. Lightweight and like cutting butter.

                I also purchased these https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...oated-scissors when they were a DD sometime ago. They also are lightweight and cut very nicely. Also lightweight and will save some extra $$$

                  I don't use my scissors very often (and when I do, I'm not asking a whole lot of them in my quilt room), so I just bought a good pair of Fiskar scissors at Joanns. I don't use them for anything but fabric, and they still cut beautifully five years later. If I used my scissors a lot, I would probably invest in Ginger or kai, but for me, Fiskars has worked well for a fraction of the cost.

                      For all my fellow 'Lefties' - know that currently Kai are the only true left-handed scissors I have found!!

                          I've been replacing my scissors with KAI. They're very sharp, right to the tip, lightweight and reasonably priced.

                          Ordering directly from KAI is free shipping and the best prices.

                            I have an obsession with scissors ...I own every Gingher made and a few Fiskars too....NOW I'm going to have to get a KAI...
                            Love that I can send my Ginghers back to the factory to be serviced too...cost is very low to do that and I usually do a few at a time.
