Hi
Has anyone tried the smaller Karen Kay Buckley scissors (green ones)? I have the purple ones and LOVE them.!

Also see that Karen was one of the top winners at Houston for her quilt "Fiesta Mexico".

Thanks for your help! Happy Quilting

Went to her website. She has yellow ones that are 4" for $19.99, They have a very fine tip for small applique cutting. Beautiful sissors.

I love mine...how ever be sure to keep those covers handy on the tips.  Those scissors could cut off a finger...very sharp,   I have the little ones and the big ones, my LQS, AST brought them back from big show last year.

I ordered the green ones accidentally, but I like them. I now have the larger ones on order :)

I had to look these up. Serrated edge scissors.  So they catch the fabric instead of pushing it to the side.  I'm sold.  Going to have to look for some.  It would be nice to not have to re-cut corners to get them straight.

My 2nd order was a bust, they were not the ones I thought I was ordering and I even talked to a real person who went and looked at them before I ordered. The ones they sent me are abt the same size as the green ones and they have a curved blade...I don't care for them at all. I think I found the ones I was actually trying to order, they have a black and purple handle, but not sure I want to spend the money on another maybe...
