I can't let a 60% off coupon go by without using it at JoAnn fabrics. I decided to get a new pair of gingher scissors. They were $59 and I got them for $28. Then, I got to thinking, is there a better brand out there that I am not aware of. What brand of scissors do you recommend? I'm always up for change!

I don't know how I did it, but I managed to 'spring' my Gingher scissors and now they won't cut at the point.  I'm very disappointed in them because they cost a bomb.  I have two pairs of dressmaker shears from Henckels and they've stayed sharp for over 25 years.  I need to invest in some nice sharp 'snips'.

I think all of these comments have me convinced I need to invest in some Gingher scissors!

I think Gingher are still the best, Pam.  I love the micro-serrated ones; they don't slip!

I loved my home Ec classes! Our oldest grandson, just finished his sewing project at school. Had to make two pillows. He got an A-. He was having trouble threading the needle on the machine! Sound familiar!!!

PQ I do remember my Home Ec teacher.  I took HE all four years of high school. I learned to sew in that class.

I bought mine as a senior (possibly junior, but who can remember?) on the recommendation of my Home Ec teacher (remember those?).  They are still sharp.  You got yours for a great price!

I got my Gingher scissors at JoAnn Fabric years ago.  (on sale)  I love them. I don't know of any brands better.
