Where can I purchase curve cutting pinking shears?  Seen on a Martha Stewart episode  of sewing a baby bib, finishing touch.

I have my mother's old pinking shears.  Still pretty sharp.  However I use my rotary cutter with a pinking shears blade more often.

Is the rotary cutter easier to use? And where did you purchase pinking shear blade? Thank you.

Very easy.   Most quilting stores with have them.  I haven't tried to use them against a ruler.  Experiment with it on some scraps and see what you can do.
