May I please ask what are the best recommended sissors for ragging flannel? I have the Fons and Porter little red handled ones but I was wondering if there is something even easier? I just finished up a large size fall colors and well, Let the ragging begin. Thank you

Well, I am not at home and so cannot remember the name. They may be the F & P. Instead of having to put swollen, arthritic thumbs into handles, they have handles like pliers and you squeeze them together. I am able to use them without any problems. However, I think my handles are blue. They were a little pricey--$30-40.

Okay, I'm home now. They are Heritage Cutlery 6 1/2" Rag Quilting Snips. I bought them in a quilt shop a couple of years ago.

FISKARS soft touch spring action Rag Quilter Snips from JoAnns.com now on sale at $13.99. do a search on just Fiskars and they are on page 7 second line... These don't hurt your hands and stay sharp the longest. At least that is my opinion.

I use the fiskars that have a short blade. It seems to work the best & you have a lower chance of clipping to deep.

Right Here
The best scissors I have used are Famore 8" Blue Handle Fabric Scissors
I have about every brand of expensive scissors and these are the best. They will cut 10 layers of fabric at the very tip of the blades.

I have had a pair of Fiskars softouch USA with black handle and a gold slider lock 10". They have a spring that springs open and you slightly grip to close and cut. THEY ARE GREAT. They have stayed sharp for a very long time, and ease hand tension.

Today I am hunting a good pair of scissors 5" to 7". Advise?
Thanks,
Barbara
