Friday Give-Away – 8″ Fabric Shears

Congratulations to last week’s winners: #15 Christine, #31 Barbara, #7 Penny and #64 Mindy. They each won one of the gorgeous appliqué patterns donated by Sisters’ Scraps Quilt Shop from last week’s give-away.

Friday Give-Aways from the Quilting Gallery

This week’s Friday Give-Away is a pair of 8″ Fabric Shears donated by the Simplicity Creative Group.

I was very fortunate to have Simplicity as my booth neighbour at Spring Market and to meet Michele Muska there. We were able to chat at various times throughout the weekend. I am grateful for her ideas, wisdom, support and generosity.

The 8″ Fabric Sheers are your traditional heirloom quality fabric shear. Hand polished both inside and out, the quality of razor sharp edges will last for years.

    • Functionality
  • Superior rust and corrosion resistance – finish prevents rust for up to 100 years, regardless of amount of daily use
  • Dedicated sharpening and repair service center – exclusively for Simplicity scissor owners
  • Lifetime Guarantee against any manufacturer defect
  • This collection has been selected because it addresses the NEEDS of sewing, crafting embroidery, quilting
