Scissors Sharpening

Nice quality fabric scissors such as Gingher deserve a little TLC sometimes. In some areas it may be difficulty to find professional sharpening and repair for scissors. I recently read that Henry Westpfal & Co. out of New York City, as well as Gingher themselves offer mail in service for your shears at a reasonable price.

Some tips for keeping your scissors in good condition:
- Don't use sewing scissors to cut anything other than fabric, ever.
- Keep scissors away from moisture and humidity.
- When blades lose their sharp edge, use a reputable sharpening service.
