As fabrics and sewing lovers, most of us surely have more than one scissor: scissors for woven fabrics, scissors for paper and non-woven materials such as some interlinings, scissors for threads, scissors for embroidery etc. It is not superfluous to say that each scissors should be used only for their specific purpose, because otherwise we fall into those blunt scissors that do not cut well and damage our projects.

So yeah, store your scissors WELL so you won’t find any funny person with your fabric scissors cutting a package of cookies to open it LOL.

The first tip is that whenever you go shopping for scissors, go for good scissors instead of the best price. Take advantage of technology and check all the thousands of reviews that you will undoubtedly find on the internet about the scissors you are going to buy.

And the second is about the maintenance of the scissors. On the internet you will find thousands of homemade tricks to sharpen them, my advice is DO NOT DO IT, because scissors are one of these tools that it is better to take them with a professional to carry out sharpening and maintenance, especially if they are well-chosen scissors which are usually expensive scissors. Another option is to buy a sharpener and perform maintenance and sharpening directly at home.

Anyway, I leave you here some scissors recommendations and also scissors sharpening tool recommendations in case you want to carry out this maintenance at home:
