Scissors For Dressmaking, Sewing, Needlework, Embroidery or Crafting

I'm sure you will have scissors in your sewing box that you feel should be sharper! There's nothing worse than trying to cut thread, only to cut it again because it was not a clean cut! or having to try two times to cut a piece of fabric!

The time is right to treat yourself to some new scissors. Starting at under £2 we have all types from thread snips to dressmakers or pinking shears.

There is nothing worse than needing to cut through layers of fabric, but only to find your scissors are blunt or are not strong enough for the job.

Here at Singer Machines Ltd we only sell top brands to make cutting materials quicker and less stressful, that is as long as you follow your own chalk lines.!

New to the market over the last few years have been the soft touch grip scissor handles, these are really comfortable when needing to do lots of cutting out.

May be not as strong as the solid metal stainless steel scissors, the lighter alloy type materials also used are still very durable and have very sharp edges.

You will need a good mix of scissors for every task, but remember not to use your good dressmaking scissors for cutting paper, card board, sellotape or wires as the sharpness wont last long.!

Over the years scissors have developed as needlework and sewing has become popular as a hobby, customer demand new and innovative ways to cut and trim materials.

My personal favorites are the double curve embroidery scissors, they feel lovely to use and the shape is just right for trimming thread ends.

For dressmaking i would suggest looking towards the scissors that will allow one to cut material on the table with ease, the scissor handles will be raised. So when the blades are cutting material on the table, your knuckles will not be banging on the table top as you cut. Ones to look for are Fiskars dressmaking, Janome side bent, or the professional full stainless steel Mundial scissors.
