A pair of sewing scissors is a must have for any professional or amateur dressmaker, sewing scissors or dressmaking scissors tend to have very long blades that are both very sharp and strong. This enables sewing scissors to cut through cloth and silk with ease and leaves a smooth, clean straight cut line.
We also stock needlework scissors which are considerably smaller and closely resemble a pair of nail scissors. These are ideal for small intricate work and lightweight tasks like cutting excess thread after sewing a button. Use needlework scissors when dress making scissors are too big for the job. Like all scissors and blades – our sewing scissors are not for sale to those under 18 years of age.
