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.

What a COOL idea!!
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.
Just don’t bend over with them. You will stab them in your belly. I did. LOL
