A Scissor at all Times

A long arm quilter I know had a cute little pin with a retractable scissor that I always wanted.  Hers had a little quilting emblem on the pin part.

I told my kids and hubby that this is what I wanted for Christmas.  Well…they came really close.  My son Buck bought retractable badge holders like these GBC BadgeMates Retractable Badge Reels, 5 per pack, Color May Vary (3747217)


I lifted the snap and added my little sewing scissor.

I hook the badgge on my clothes and now I always have a scissor handy.


It is especially wonderful when I am working on the long arm.  There is always a scissor with me to clip threads.  I wish I had done this YEARS ago.  These would make great little gifts for you quilting buddies.  The scissor was only $3.95 and the badge holders can be found for about a dollar each.

    Be very careful not to let go of the sissors too quickly, ask how I know! Painful poke of the sissors into me.

    Jo thanks for sharing your idea, I was just looking for a scissor lanyard on the internet last night. I just took a utility quilt stitch class and my teacher had one on and I thought boy that’s a handy idea! I found some but I think I like your idea even better.
