My Old Pinking Shears

Did you see that over at Love Laugh Quilt they are having a Sewing Museum Linky Party?  There are lots of people who have linked up with their antique sewing machines and notions.  I am sharing my old pinking shears.

Have you seen one like it??  There are two wheels, a solid wheel and the pinking wheel.  As you open and shut, the wheels turn and the fabric cuts.  I works really well.

I bought it years ago at an auction in New Hampton, Iowa.  Back then I was a quilter want to be.  I purchased several things but my eyes were on crafty things rather than quilty things.  Oh I wish I could go back to that auction today with my quilty eyes.  There are so-so many things I would have bought.

I did get these pinking shears though…they are the perfect kind on antique-unique, cute and still very usable.  Head on over to the Sewing Museum Linky Party.

    I would never have guessed that they were pinking shears. Probably a collector’s item, but I’m glad the pinks on scissors blades were invented. Thanks for sharing.

    I actually saw those exact pinking roller scissors for sale today at the Sewing & Quilting Expo in Puyallup, WA. I guess a company has started producing them again. They were a bit pricy, $77 before tax, so right now I’ll use my pinking roller.
