Tuesday Tip

I have found when clipping curves that a very sturdy pair of scissors is the best thing. I have been clipping curves for a very long time with a variety of scissors--from small to large. I have finally found a pair that work best for me. They are the craft scissors that FISKARS puts out. They have a very sharp point and yet heavy duty enough blades the won't separate when put to task in heavy fabrics. I try to go slow and steady and start with a small amount of fabric when doing the heavy curves. They are the best I have found so far. The Micro-Tip (R) is what makes them most useful.

Thanks for the great tip! I've been using those stork embroidery scissors to clip curves but I've found that the small blades at times leave something to be desired! I will definitely keep the Fiskars in mind the next time I'm at the store!
