It was a small group last evening of eight - I think because it was so cold outside, but we had a great time! We were to bring our favorite sissors. Here are the sissors
Three members out of the eight of us are left handed so there was a lively discussion about lefties using right handed sissors. Lots of good tips were shared about using wavey rotary cutter blades and sharpening sissors. Oh, by the way, I forgot to take my sissors (duh!) so here is a picture of mine I took when I got home. It includes my Ginghers - 2 pair of 8" shears, 5" shears, a small pair of embroidery sissors, a pair of nips, and a Gingher sharpening stone. We also talked a bit about seam rippers and here are my two favorites with my spares still in the package.
We then had show and tell. Joanna brought a beautiful silk and cotton table runner
I brought two of my step zig zag quilts.
Next month we are having a pincushion swap. I am going to put that on my calendar so I don't forget. I don't know what I am going to make, but when the question came up of what to fill your pincushion with, someone said to put some steel wool in the middle and wrap it with the fiberfill so that the steel wool will sharpen your pins. I thought that was a great idea.
