Okay, I admit it. I still can’t sleep and I couldn’t stand to keep you in suspense much longer. So, here’s the deal. After a Stitching Blogger’s Question of the Week revealed that many of my fellow stitchy bloggers were woefully bereft of embroidery scissors, I went out on eBay and bought a bunch of scissors and culled a few from my own collection so that I could give them away to those in need of more. 🙂
As a result, I have a total of 20 (yes, TWENTY) pairs of scissors to give away to my readers. The rules are fairly simple. Click on any of the pairs thumbnailed below to get a larger (if still mediocre) picture, plus a description and the number of pairs available (some have multiples). If you like them and would like a pair, leave a comment on the picture in my gallery and send me your mailing address (I may have some of yours, but send it to me anyway, please). My email address is jenna at magees dot net, if you didn’t know already.
That’s it. You can enter for more than one pair of scissors. If the number of entries exceeds the number of scissors of that design available, I will try to make sure that each person who enters gets at least one pair. So, really, I would encourage you to enter for more than one. That way, you’ll be assured of getting at least one pair that you like. Pretty much the same rules as my ornament giveaway. And if more than 20 people manage to enter, I’ll improvise, so don’t worry. 😀
You have a week to place your entries. I will close the doors at the end of the day on September 25th and the scissors will start flying (carefully) within a week or so after that, unless I will be seeing you at CATS in Hershey, in which case I will give them to you in person.
P.S. If you can’t figure out how to comment on the gallery, feel free to comment here or drop me an email with your choices.
P.P.S. I apologize for the poor quality of the photos, but I tried 3 times to capture the colors and beauty of these scissors and failed each time. This group was the least of the failures. Besides, it was 3:30 AM, do you think I care enough to try again? 😉 If you’d like me to try to get a better picture of any of these, just ask and I will try it again in daylight.
