      I use a Black Sharpie and I write “fabric” on the fabric scissors and “paper” on all the others to make it clear to all. And I keep the fabric scissors with my fabric to make it clearer (if they aren’t easily accessible …). It really helps if your hubby gets to buy you your fabric scissors and realize how much good scissors cost.

    You can always use a few extra pair a scissors – they love to play hide and seek just when you need them!

    WOW. A knife for every purpose… Well for sewing / crafts, at least :) Am a big believer in using tools designed for the job, so this would really nice to get.

    These are great! And so easy to identify as ‘mine’! That seems to be the issue around my house – a pair of scissors is just a pair of scissors. Not true!

    I’ve spent so much money on buying $1 scissors. What makes it bad is, that when I need a pair of scissors, I can never find a pair!!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win these fabulous Westcott scissors!!!

    Well, the last time I bought scissors was in the last century (the 20th century that is). It would be wonderful to have a set of new lighter weight cutting tools!

    I have never seen so many scissors in one place. My scissors are dollar store specials. I love to sew and good scissors are hard to find.
