Everyone has scissors, but I just had to post these ones, both from Fiskars and I love them.
The small pair are over 20 years old now, and my parents bought them when they visited the States to see my brother.
The larger pair are not quite so old - but must be more than 10 years now, I remember buying them at a wholesalers when I ran the internet shop!
I have no idea if they are as good today as they were then, but they are sprung and cut fabric effortlessly, and make it so easy on the hands.
The little ones are particularly good with the pom pom maker.
Make a change from facebook etc and have a crafty natter - it would be lovely to get the forum up and running again, follow the link at the top of the page.
