Karen Kay Buckley's new Perfect Curved Scissors. What is the benefit of the curved tip you might ask? The benefit is that it allows you to clip close to your fabric without cutting into your quilt top. These scissors are fabulous for clipping threads for machine quilting, machine applique and machine embroidery. They have a serrated blade, a very comfortable handle, and a right or left hander can use them with ease.
I have never before worked with a pin that is this thin. It is very, very skinny and very sharp. You can see the size in the photograph. Because the head on these pins is so small I find that I like to spill the pins onto a piece of felt, making it easier to pick them up. There are 50 pins in each little plastic tube.
