6" Farm Style Scissors for Sale


I've been in LOVE with these scissors for years now. . .I call them FARM STYLE because the handles are wrapped in DENIM. . .Others might call them PRIM. . .Either way, I have found them  to be pretty HANDY. . .

The big OPEN HANDLE is roomy enough that I can wear gloves during outdoor demonstrations. . .
It doesn't matter if you are left-handed or right-handed. . .works for both.
While they have many uses, I particularly like them for RAG RUG WEAVING. . .I simply attach with a huge safety pin to the rug itself. . .That way I can find them for adding strips. . .or trimming end pieces. . .
I seem to have a problem with losing my scissors. . .(GRIN)



Tucked in the POCKET of the weaving supply bag, I'm ready to start the next RUG. . .




They're nice for QUILTING PROJECTS, too. . .



SHARP. . .DURABLE HIGH CARBON STEEL. . .BUTTERFLY HANDLES

Please note: The scissors for sale are 6" and not 7" as stated on the photos.
Our 7" Scissors are Out of Stock.
