I would start with the very first pair of scissors that I used in Home Economics if I still had them. I am sure my mother had them at one time but I have no clue where they got off to. So instead, I will start with the first pair of scissors I used after I got married and started sewing full time in 1979. My late ex-father in law gave these Ginghers to me. They belonged to his late wife, the grandmother to my girls. One day I will hand these down to one of them.
These Ginghers were the very first pair of scissors that I purchased for my very own. I was so proud to walk out of Ken's Sewing Center with these in my hand. This was somewhere near 1982.
Ken gifted these Wiss pinking shears to me when I traded my first New Home machine (purchased from them in 1980) in on a brand new one. I literally burnt the motor up on the old one because I sewed so much!
Ken's son, after much debating, gifted these Ginghers to me when I purchased a brand new Janome from them.
These Gingher's were also a thank you gift from Ken's Sewing Center for yet another machine purchase! They are loving me by now! :)... Seriously, they are just plain good folks to do business with! They are my "go-to" machine dealer!
These 2 pair of 9" Ginghers were gifted from Ken for the purchase of my Brother 10 needle embroidery machine and my granddaughters first Janome!
These brand new Ginghers were sent to me this week from Ken's son Jeremy for sending them a brand new customer who purchased 2 machines last week!!
These 2 little pair of Ginghers are so precious! One was purchased at JoAnn's fabrics and I won the other pair with the scissor fob from a blog giveaway!
Can you tell what brand of scissors are my favorite!! Ginghers cannot be beat!!... and neither can Ken's Sewing Center !
The next 5 pc collection of scissors came from Mary Jo's Cloth Store. They sell used scissors and I snagged these for 1.00 a pair!
These 2 little pair of Westcotts were sent to me as gifts from friends. I have been in a few secret sister swaps and I love finding things like this in my packages.
These came with my embroidery machines.
I purchased this set of Fiskars because I had heard so many good reviews on them. They are ok but give me my Ginghers any day.
The pair with the red inside the finger holes were purchased to cut dear hubby's hair. The other 2 were gifted by friends.
This pair came in a gift from a friend.
These also came from friends. Although not technically scissors but they do cut.
These were gifted by a friend during a secret sister swap. I smiled real big when I opened these babies!
I love the color blue so when I spotted these at Walmart, they had to come home with me. I was going to use them as an alternate pair of scissors to cut hubby's hair but my fat fingers get hung in the holes! Can we say ouch!! By the way, these are perched a'top my grandfather's barber shop mirror.
This 3 piece set of scissors was in one of my monthly secret sister packages. I use these for paper cutting so I am not inclined to use my Ginghers.
Were you counting?? If you were, if you came up with 32 you are correcto mongo!!! YEP! I own 32 pairs of scissors! And this is not counting the 2 pair in my kitchen drawer... and the 2 pair in my hubby's bathroom drawer for his personal use. Can you say that I am scissor poor!!
