A few of my favorite things Part 4

Top to bottom:

1.Karen Kay Buckley Micro Serrated Scissors-I use these all the time for everything.  The serrated edge grips the fabric, no sliding around.  I believe the claim is they'll cut 6-8 layers of fabric accurately - I don't know about that, but they have become my go to scissors.  I also like that they have a plastic guard for when they are not in use.

2. Gingher Knife Edge Shears - The classic.  Sharp, Straight, and can always be resharpened when they get dull.

3. Karen Kay Buckley Small Serrated Scissors - Everything I said about number 1, in a smaller size.  I carry these around for all my hand work.  They also have a plastic guard...somewhere.

4. Gingher Stork Applique Scissors - small, sharp, pointy.  Don't fall for the cheaper knock offs, I did and finally got the brand name.  Sometimes you need to pay for quality!

 Once again - these companies don't know me.  I just like this stuff.

I took a class from Piece O Cake's Becky Goldsmith and she also raved about the Buckley scissors. You are in good company!
