Scissors, clipping and more…
If you missed it, here is this week’s Time Out where I explain how scissors work (there’s more to it than you might think) and when to clip seam allowances—and when not to. Enjoy!

Add charm to your scissors…
Your scissors really will be more ‘charming’ when they are wearing one of these cute charms! And (bonus!) I show you how to attach the Scissor Charms so that you pick up serrated scissors for smoother cutting every time.

What is a traditionally crafted scissor snip?
I do love a good tool and even though have a variety of scissors that clip threads and snip fabric, I can’t resist these Cohana snips. They are sturdy, forged from one piece of steel, with a handle wrapped in silk cord. Each one comes with its own lovely leather sheath.
My husband has more than a dozen different kinds of hammers and each does a different job. It’s the same with our scissors… we want to have the right tool for the job at hand. And if that tool makes us smile when we hold it, so much the better :-).
