Newbie with scissor question
Having been given a fabulous sewing machine for my birthday, I have just started sewing again - and I LOVE it! (As do my kids, who are getting a kick out of picking out fabric for coordinating outfits for themselves). However, I am having the hardest time cutting patterns neatly. So I have come to the conclusion that I need a new pair of scissors, or two. Actually, it seems that I need one long pair of sewing shears and one small pair to clip corners - does this sound right? If so, what should I look for? Are there some brands that are better than others? What are your favorite scissors?
I want to get really good ones so I don't have to go running back to the store in a couple of years...
Thanks so much!
