When I was at the Philadelphia Quilt Show, I rested my rear end for a while and attended a lecture on new gadgets in the quilting industry. One product they recommended was Karen Kay Buckley’s Perfect Scissors.
According to the package, the advantages of this micro serrated blade are:
1. Keeps fabric from slipping so cutting is more accurate
2. Helps to prevent frayed edges
3. Cuts up to 8 layers of cotton fabric easily
We had the opportunity to test these scissors and they did, indeed, cut through 8 layers of fabric. I bought a pair and have been absolutely delighted. For the last month, I haven’t used anything else.
You can find out more about these scissors at http://www.karenkaybuckley.com/index.php. The scissors retail for $25.99. (PS: I have no financial interest in this product.)
