Don't miss Scissors, page 1!

Welcome to page 2 of our Scissors Heaven!
We have an entire display case full of the most wonderful Solingen Steel Cutlery from Germany, unusual novelty scissors from France, top quality embroidery scissors from Italy -- just a wonderful array! We're highlighting a few here, and will be adding more to treat you! (I kind of have this "scissor thing"...)

Featured on Page 1, some styles from: Gingher, Dovo, Wasa, and some French and Italian importers. (Many have no names, per se, and since the invoices are often in German or Italian, I have no idea just what they call them! We just know that we LOVE them! So we've given all of them our own "SN numbers," to keep them straight!!!)   I'll try to give you some info about each!!!

3-1/2 Inch Rainbow Embroidery Scissors - click for more
3-1/2 Inch Rainbow Embroidery Scissors
Just a classic little embroidery scissor style, these are so pretty because they feature a rainbow finish of metallic green/purple/blue.

Every time you look at them or turn them in your hand, the colors look like they change with each other.

Very colorful and fun... perfect for small stitched fobs or fun sewing cases. LOVE that color!!!

Cute, Novelty Scissors!
We have 10 new patterns of 3-1/2 inch embroidery scissors that are cute and colorful - fun for little cases and fobs. Not real *high* on the cutting quality end of things, (meaning they are not DOVO quality) they are, however, cute and colorful, and perfect for lots of things! Designs are enameled on the handles so they will not rub off or fade, and will maintain their charm! I had actually never seen pineapple and cactus scissors before... feels like we need a stitched flamingo or something for them!

Pictured from left to right are: Owls, Stars, Pumpkins (closer to 4"), Yellow Heart, Anchor, Pineapple, Cactus, and Holly.

Cotton Candy Mini Scissors - click for more Cotton Candy Mini Scissors
Fun pastel 3-1/4 inch lightweight scissors... these are petite, colorful, functional and VERY sharp! The blades are 7/8 inch long and they feature normal-sized finger holes... each has a matching translucent plastic sheath that *snaps* in place over the blades for travel and storage. They weigh just nothing, and have a smooth cutting action. Perfect for your purse or a good travel option.

The darker purple ones are also 3-1/2 inches but feature a CURVED blade! That little bit of curve really lifts up your hand so your cutting fingers aren't 'smashing' what you've already stitched. VERY NICE scissors at this price point -- you'll be happy with them.

Perfect Scissors by Karen Kay Buckley - click to see more Perfect Scissors by Karen Kay Buckley
Three different sizes of functional and unique scissors... you might notice our *Grasshopper Scissors* in the middle of this trio! We like these scissors because of the padded, soft handles - which are actually flexible. We like the striking black metal on the blades. We like the bright colors on the handles. We like the little plastic protective sheaths that come with each pair - they 'snap' on to cover the tips for protection. We like the micro-serration of the blades... that grips your thread and keeps it in one place for cleaner, more precise cutting.

Just really nice scissors - the blue handled ones measure 6 inches, the grasshopper green measure 4 1/4 inches, and the chunky curved bladed red handled ones measure in at 3-3/4. (Very sturdy little guys!)

All you Stitchers-Around-The-World... enjoy our new treats! From Dinky Dyes, these are the only these countries remain. If you want another -- tell Jo at Dinky Dyes! She makes these happen!

Bohin SN29 Gold Preemie
SN29 2-5/8 Preemie Scissors by Bohin
Directly from France, we have these delightful little shiny gold scissors that are a teeny 2-5/8 inch in size. A petite size, these have a fairly sharp point, and I think a very slightly serrated blade. Serration -- that is the texturing on the blades -- like a ripply tomato or steak knife. It holds your thread in place better so when you cut; it's clean. (Your thread hasn't slid on the scissor blade and given you a frayed cut.)

The gold on these looks elegant... they are NOT a 'cheapie looking' pair of scissors!!! Very Nice!

Cutting Recommendations: Single or two-ply cotton or silk flosses and sewing threads.
Knitting or needlepoint yarns, metallics, fabric, or perforated paper NEVER recommended. (Ginghers are the better alternative, as well as our selections on the following page.)

Autumn Luster Scissors from Bohin of France
Autumn Luster Scissors from Bohin of France
Oh, these are a delicious new scissor I found at market! By Bohin, a French cutlery company, these are 3-1/2 inch stainless, and feature a softly curved handle shape. What makes them so pretty is the special finish... a marbling of translucent gold, black and cinnamon colors... all bonded onto the metal. Not dipped or air-brushed... this finish is ON THERE! So pretty, I've never seen anything like these! Very well balanced, nice and sharp, a smooth cutting action, these are just a really nice little pair of scissors!!! (Not to mention how good they'll look in scissor cases stitched with fall colors!) I'll keep my eyes out for more from this company -- I'd seen some that retailed for $90 a pair -- but I was chicken to order those!!! Try these first!

Cutting Recommendations: Single or two-ply cotton or silk flosses and sewing threads.

SN-40 and SN-41

These are pretty little 3 1/2" scissors! They have handles that have been dipped with translucent colors! All six colors shown are just so pretty... it's hard to decide on a favorite! The best part is their price... only $8.95 each! Medium quality, these are great for needle case stuffers, your traveling needlework bag, a first pair of scissors for a young stitcher... just anything! Several designers will be featuring these scissors in their new releases this next year, especially with scissor fobs... so remember, we have them available individually, if you need multiples!

Double Leather Sheaths -- click here to see a larger view!
Leather Scissor Sheaths
Thin, soft leather... the larger double sheaths hold two pair of scissors together! Measuring approx 4 inches long, they will hold scissors that are larger than the regular 3-1/2 embroidery size. Small, simple and functional!

Also featured are the new tiny size, and the regular.

Floral Embroidery Scissors from Premax of Italy Floral Embroidery Scissors from Premax of Italy
Oh, these are delightful little 3-1/2 embroidery scissors that feature colorful floral patterns enameled onto their handles! Stainless steel, they feel really good! Nice shape, sharp tips with a good taper, not too heavy and not flimsy feeling... they have a nice, smooth cutting action. Brought to us by the same company that did our 'space-ship-scissors' (the Premax Ring Locks), they will be lovely inside all your stitched scissor cases, and extra-pretty with a coordinating stitched fob!

They feel like the Seasons to me!!! The purple ones are half-way between blue and purple, very 'Summer' with lots of color. The white ones feature little flowers of pinks, yellows, purples, blues... they're an overall medley of floral color... just like Spring! The cream pair has lots of gold, cinnamon, mossy greens... I get a late-summer/early-autumn feel from those... they have a little dusted mauve on them, too. Then, the red and white... definitely Winter! (But then, again, they could be summer!) A light red -- like the DMC 350 corals... NOT deep burgundy red... they're just a cheerful red and white! Sunflower Yellow is definitely a 'Summer!' Definitely new, unique, FUNCTIONAL, and pretty!

Serpentines by Premax - click to see more Serpentines by Premax
These are 3-1/2 inch embroidery scissors made in Italy by Premax. You'll recognize the Serpentine design -- the gold scissors. It's a classic pattern that a lot of different scissor maufacturers have used. Serpentines have a sharper point. They cut nicely, they're pretty, and would be perfect in a pretty sewing case or on a neat fob. Not too expensive, they are GREAT as a nice, basic embroidery scissor... WAY TOO nice to let the *home handyman* near!!!

SN24 Premax Chickens
Well, how cute are these! 4-Inch, all gold plated, very sturdy in feel, the thick-ish blades are a full 1-1/2 inches in length.

Very sharp point, these are pretty!

Premax Ring Lock Scissors from Italy -- click to see a larger view Premax **Curved** Ringlock Scissors
Oh wow... are these NICE! By Premax of Italy, we have a third style of *Space Ship Scissors!* Very sleek and smooth in design, this pair of 3-3/4 inch precision scissors features a smooth, curvy shape, a very comfortable 'hand' in YOUR hand, a 'ringlock' attachment system rather than a traditional screw, and thin, tapered blades that have a slight curve to them.

That extra small angle really gives you the ergonomic advantage when you're trimming close threads. Your cutting hand isn't damaging any stitches already there... you can simply 'reach in' and cut anything needed, without disturbing any stitches already executed. Really smooooooth...

Premax Ring Lock Scissors from Italy -- click to see a larger view Premax Ring Lock Scissors from Italy
WOW... these are the neatest looking and feeling little embroidery scissors... VERRRY smooth... very SLEEEK... A Substantial Weight... and A Perfect Balance in your hand! From Italy, we have two new sizes and styles of small scissors -- packaged in a space-age plastic and foam-padded snap-closing case -- one might think they came from outer space!!!

The smaller pair is 3-5/8 inches long... 7/8 in blades... very smooth... they look like a little bird of some sort. The longer pair -- 4-1/4 inches has a larger finger hole, and simply a longer handle shaft, with 1-1/2 inch blades.

How can a simple half-inch make so much difference in shape and feel? Both are exquisite... both are a brushed stainless finish -- so they look like pewter. You should NOT pass these by because of quality alone... but check out the prices, too!!! They just feel so good!

Task Scissors -- click to see a larger view Task Scissors
  • Heart Shaped - Shiny gold or matte black finish, these are 3-1/2 inches in length and feature that pretty handle design. VERY sharp tips, nice sturdy scissors.
  • 4-Inch Black Curved Blade - these are 4 inches in overall length. The cutting blades are slightly curved. Because the finger holes are slightly farther away from the blades (because these are 4 inches instead of 3-1/2) you get more power in your cutting, and because of the curved blade, your hand is slightly 'up' from your fabric or threads, so it's easier to aim the tips right in there to get a really close cut.

There's even MORE!
