Easy Tip: Why You Should Use Your Sewing Scissors for Sewing OnlyWritten by d'Italia
Your sewing scissors are an integral part of your sewing tool kit, and it’s absolutely important that your sewing scissors be maintained as sharp as possible in order for them to stay effective. Having a good, clan cut when you need one is an invaluable part of the sewing process, and ensuring that your sewing scissors are up for the task anytime will be a huge help you might come to appreciate only when you find it’s not available.
The Trouble with Dull ScissorsThe trouble with dull scissors is that, well, they don’t cut well! When you’re cutting threads and fabrics for sewing, you will always want the cleanest, most precise cut possible. Dull scissors can cause fraying or uneven cut lines, which can sabotage any sewing project. Why to Limit What You CutThe thing about blades is that they inevitably dull with every use, and even thread is no exception. That’s why making sure to keep your sewing scissors for sewing-related cuts only is important, because you can always use cheaper, less important scissors for things like cutting tape or shredding a credit card. Of course you can always sharpen them, but you don’t want to ruin a project with poor cuts before realising it’s time.
