The conversation at the last Thursdays stitch got around to scissors, specifically the Gingher Designer scissors, which are issued a couple of times a year and then the handle design is discontinued. Mostly, they are named with different girl's names. They come both as sewing shears for cutting fabric and in 4 inch embroidery scissors. I have been a collector of the 4 inch ones for several years off and on, especially when I could get them at a local JoAnne's, which has long since closed. I like to keep a pair of embroidery scissors with each project and my WIP's (works-in-progress) are many! And I have a stash of scissors still in their boxes, besides. So yesterday I decided I should try to collect them all and photograph them so I knew which ones I have. I had the empty boxes plus one lid (now that is worrisome!) and the unopened ones. I was able to find all but one pair, Amanda. That one has hot pink patterned handles so it can't be very lost! In total, I have 14 pairs. I have found 14 other pairs that I do not have. Since the asking price on E Bay for some of these is in the 3 figure range, I probably won't be getting them! Here are a few pictures.
