...a couple of months ago while cutting fabric my dressmaker shears somehow just flew out of my hand. Yep, landed about 2 feet from me on my lovely hardwood floor with a thud. I don't know what got into them that day, but since then they won't cut hot butter. They still look perfect - no chips, scratches or anything, but I guess I threw them off balance. I do have 2 really good backup pairs, as well as 8 or 9 pairs of not so great ones that I don't mind using to cut paper. But I just love cutting with my 7 year old Kai shears that never needed sharpening. Is the word "shears" correct usage in sewing terms.
My cutting tool of choice
I finally got around to ordering a new pair this afternoon. They are just so comfortable to use, perfect fit, that is up until they decided to fly out of my hand and across the room.
So, my question to you - What are your favorite shears to use for sewing????
