Karen Kay Buckley is renowned for her award winning applique work and has created a great line of tools for quilters. These scissors have comfortable soft handles and a micro serrated blade which grabs threads rather than pushing them away like traditional scissors. What is the benefit of the curved tip you might ask? The benefit is that it allows you to clip close to your fabric without cutting into your quilt top. These scissors are fabulous for clipping threads for machine quilting, machine applique and machine embroidery. Clip threads close for sewing, embroidery, and quilting without damaging fabric. Great for cutting away stabilizer. Comes with a protective plastic cover and a right or left hander can use them with ease. One blade is micro serrated and the other is plain and can be sharpened.
