a pair of scissors for every different purpose.

a pair of scissors for every different cut.


Treat yourself with a good pair of scissors priced over $30.00 for sewing & quilting. Use the poor #3.99 ones for paper and craft projects

I was cleaning out the bottom drawer of my sewing table awhile back, and discovered that I had five pairs of pinking shears (three of which I have since donated to my guild’s “Bargain Garden.”) This lead me to search my house to find out just how many pairs of scissors I had. Note: I have friends who insist that embroidery scissors and thread snips should not “count;” in that case, I only own fourteen pairs of sewing scissors.

Interesting survey, I use scissors based on the project…

I love the scissors that came in a suture removal kit. They are extremely sharp at the point and the price is right. I have electric, which are seldom used. All the name brands as well. Seems like I have them for everything project in process.


No comment.


Not counting paper scissors, 6 pair.


I have no comment!

I love to sew !

C A Haines

My favorite is my applique

Angie Moreno

For me you can never have to many scissors.

Becky Couture

I have paper scissors, fabric only scissors & shears, nippers for threads, and pinking shears for my labels. My Mother-In-Law has added a lot of hers to my collection recently giving me many more to work with, but I have my favorites. 🙂

I pretty much have scissors wherever I use them: by my sewing chair for handwork, at the ironing board, cutting table, sewing machine, and in with my project of handwork that goes with me.


Karen Kay Buckley’s are the best!


I have so many scissors that I really lost count.

Although I have about 10 scissors I use 2 most frequently; Betty Busby scissors.


I LOVE scissors!

Jane Von Letkemann

Please let us see the survey results.


Wish I had more.

scissors are tools that have multiple uses. different brands are used for different things –ginghers for clothing, household sewing, buckley for quilt making, fiskars for paper crafts etc. i have many scissors including vintage ones from estate auctions while living in the east. scissors are a tool & i love tools!


There is just something satisfying about a nice sharp pair of scissors. My favorites have maroon handles and were made by Coats and Clark. They are a nice small size for trimming etc but are no longer made. I have scissors in every size and shape. I find them as hard to resist as cotton fabric !!

Mary Montgomery

Use them most days, no time for more got to sew.


Not sure— just a guess.

Linda Baker

No one is allowed to use my scissors. If I catch anyone, they have to pay to have them sharpened.

Pamela Dorman

I had quite a lot till I got 3 of Karen K Buckley designed scissors (3 different sizes] and they are wonderful, so I gave all the others away to anyone wo wanted them.

Teresa Findlay

I like to keep my scissors sharp as they work a whole lot better

Linda Clark

Most of my scissors are “memorable “, applique , small ones autoclaved and saved for me from o r nurses, etc. , 2 pr of Gingers I was given when I worked at a fabric store. I wouldn’t get rid of any of them.

Carolyn Slack

A scissor for every task!


I have scissors for every use. My advice to those of you that don’t want others using your fabric scissors for other uses. Buy or get a pair of scissors free every time you or your husband goes to Harbor Freight. Put them in EVERY room so it’s inconvenient to go to your sewing room. Problem solved.
