I hope that everyone is having a joyous holiday season. I know that it has been a wonderful time for my family to be together, relax, and contemplate on the many blessings that we have. Wishing you and yours the same.
The problem is that the only thing that I know about these kinds of scissors is that they are expensive, so I decided to do a little research and here is what I learned :
– Seamstresses LOVE Ginghers.
– Alot of sewers prefer to have a large pair (8″) for fabric and a small pair for thread.
– You should sharpen your scissors “often” but we seldom do. Should cost less than $10 to do so.
OK now I need your expertise. What fabric scissors do you recommend? Where should I purchase them? And how should I take care of them?
Hi friends. I feel like life has got me going crazy right now behind the scenes which has resulted in some silence on the blog. I do have fun things going on though so I thought I would give you a little peek.
First of all Suzannah of Adventures in Dressmaking had me over to her blog yesterday talking about my bow front Megan Nielsen dress as part of her 7 Days of Holiday Party Dresses Series. If you havn’t seen it yet go and check it out along with all of the other fun dresses.
Finally the 2013 Holiday Ornament Exchange is underway as well. I am SO excited about all of the bloggers (some old some new) participating this year. I will also be opening it up to readers who want to participate. Details coming by the end of the week.
OK, I guess that is it. Talk soon.
My mom is a quilter and she is good at it. She is mathematical, precise, and loves nothing more than a perfectly fitting right angle. She spends so much time on her projects that she can justify the finest fabrics and expects the most beautiful outcome. We had a costume chest when I was young which contained beautifully made capes and ballerina costumes, not to mention perfect drawstring trick or treat bags to contain our spoils. The wonderful thing about this is that these impeccably made items have lasted through the years. My nieces and nephews still wear the capes and my children carry the same trick or treat bags. She was able to truly share her talent for quality sewing with many children through these costumes. I wonder if this is how most of my sewing friends attack this costume making season – dedicating a lot of time and money into one of a kind items. It’s kind of our time to shine. Showing off our talent for friends and neighbors.
I decided to create some social media that is specific for my blog so that I can share some of the stuff that never makes it to the blog (and you can decide what way you want to connect with True Bias).
See you around!
