Dear Santa - Sidehopper Jump Stitch Scissors
Last week I was in the shop and looking over the notion's wall at Quilter's Haven. I saw this funny looking little thing for lack of a better word in a package and immediately said to Jean "what is this?" She said it is one little awesome tool -- it is a little scissors that lets you cut jump stitches for embroidery - or at least that is what it is intended to do. The cost is $18.95.
I decided to give it a try - I love new things.
Okay - this is the coolest little thing. I took it out of the package and was just amazed at it. First of all, this little puppy is sharp - and pointy. Keep the cover on the tip or you will have a sweet little puncture in your bag or project or pocket or wherever you put it. I tried it out on some machine embroidery - and it is slick. Okay - but here is where I am really using it. I am working on binding a quilt - and it is just great as a little thread snip. I am starting an embroidery project and it will be perfect.
If you think you have everything there is related to quilting but you don't have one of these -- you need one. I give it a thumb and forefinger up (which is really how you use it....).
Here is the Santa deal of the day --- if you buy one of these from Quilter's Haven between today and December 31st and mention the blog deal - you will get 15 percent off on the Sidehopper Jump Stitch Scissors. These are perfect gifts, stocking stuffers.
