  1. Jamie, so glad you're feeling so good and healing so fast!
    I've been fusing a lot lately and sometimes get a frayed edge...seems to happen most when I stitch to close to an edge. I'm wondering if you can recommend a small, sharp Havel scissor to use to trim that tiny fray. I haven't found any when I'm out and about that are sharp enough and small enough. I'd also like to use them for when I stitch too far away!

    1. I would recommend Havel's 5-1/2" curved tip embroidery and sewing scissors and Havel's 4-3/4" Snip-Eze embroidery scissors. Both are excellent at snipping loose threads.

      and thank you for your kind words about my healing from surgery!

  2. Thanks, Jamie. I had ordered some snips after reading one of your earlier posts but ordered the blunt edge ones. I love them but now I've ordered the 5 1/2 curved tipped embroidery scissors because they look like they have a finer, sharper tip and that's what I think I need.
    Thanks again for your suggestions.

    P.S. would this be a good time to write about why you like Misty Fuse better than WonderUnder? :)
