Sorry that I have missed the boat for the last couple of weeks when it's comes to offering tips..but here I am pleading for your forgiveness and offering up a tip and a treat to say I am sorry. ... This little tip takes nothing more than a length of pretty ribbon and two brads to keep your scissors close at hand.
Just take your length of ribbon ( mine is 20 ish inches) and fold over the end making a loop.. and then secure this by pushing the brad through the ribbon fabric and securing in typical brad fashion. You now have a loop on one end. Do something similar on the other but put the loop around one of the finger holes on the scissors and then secure it. Now figure out where you are want your scissors to stay and use the end up to hook them there... it's that easy! On my old machine pictured above they are hooked to the power cord, on my new machine they are looped over the extra spool pin. Perhaps you would like to hook yours to a drawer handle or other handy place. No matter where you hook it up you can now be sure that your snips will be where you need them!
Now for thre treat.. I have 2 pairs of little scissors complete with leashes ready to find new homes. If you would like a chance at one of them please leave your contact information in the comments section below ( click on the word comment to open the window) I will draw two names this weekend some time!
