For business and pleasure I create rag quilts..all pieces are joined with the raw edges exposed. Then these edges are clipped every 1/8 to 1/4 inch to fray them. Without the right scissors this clipping can be very tedious and hurtful to your hands. Fiskars has been my answer! These spring loaded clippers work great. I have tried more expensive titanium ones etc., but none can compare to the Fiskars 6" Soft Touch. If you do any kind of detail sewing: applique, embroidery or cut out work, I highly recommend this product.
