The importance of sharpening your sewing scissors

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

For seamstresses, having a nice, sharp pair of scissors is almost as important as having a sewing machine. Our scissors, when functioning properly, allow us to cut our clean, straight lines for quilts as well as navigate even the smallest curve for patterns. There's nothing worse than clipping away only to snag an edge and fray the raw edges of our fabric and there's nothing more frustrating than only having half of a good blade on our scissors forcing us to chomp, chomp, chomp away every couple of inches.

But, scissors to dull. The blades do run their course. And, those suckers aren't cheap. A decent pair can cost close to $25. Depending on how often you sew, this can be an expensive investment. Taking proper care of you scissors like only using them for fabrics and not for cutting patterns ( know you've done it) can help. But, before you invest in a brand new pair, try scissor sharpening.

We've got someone coming by the store Wednesday, October 17th to do just that. And, the best part is, it costs just $8! Sure beats trying to do it yourself or buying a new pair. Lisa will be here from 3:30 to 5:30 tomorrow. If you can't stop by during those hours, we've still got you covered. Drop off your dull scissors with your payment (cash or check only) and pick them up when she's done.

Take the initiative and sharpen those scissors. It'll make your sewing projects all that much better and far less annoying.
