Let the Great Scissors Giveaway Begin!

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.

    You are one special lady, Jenna, do you know that?! Wow! Those pairs are all so pretty and you are so generous. No way I’m asking for any of them though – you already spoiled me last year in your Christmas ornament giveaway 😀 (I still gaze at it several times a day, as it hangs the wall right above my desk!).
    Those pairs are so delicate and pretty – and all so different, too! 🙂

    What a lovely lady you are Jenna, they are all lovely! I personally love those rooster scissors – very cute.

  4. Barbara says:

    You hit me on my greedy spot. I do have a lovely pair of scissors from Cathy, but I could not help but put my name down here, too. What beauties!! And what a lovely lady you are! 🙂

  5. lelia says:

    Oh how kewl! Thanks a million Jenna — these are great !!

    I’ll have to look all of them over before choosing; however, all of them look good to me

  6. Stitch says:

    Hi Jenna! *hugs* Wow! You have had quite the busy weekend!! LOL I wish my stitchy fingers were as fast as yours. Lovely biscornus!! I do hope that the software issue went well..:) Thanks for offering your scissors! They are all so lovely..and being that I use just normal old manicure scissors..any of them would be fine for me. LOL But I did post on my favorite….

    You are too kind to do this! 🙂 I’m so glad we’re friends..and not just because you are giving away scissors….LOL I mean that genuinely!

    Happy Stitchin!

    Wow, you have a great selection here. You
    are so generous for sure. Thank you so much
    for the give away.

  8. AnneS says:

    Yup, I ditto the “you are one generous lady” comments … you’re a gem doing this for everyone (now I’m off to try and sleep … your insomnia is catching!! – mind you, mine has more to do with coming in from work at 2.30am, and an hour later I’m still not quite 100% sleepy yet … so I’m sitting here drooling over yummy scissors instead! LOL).

  9. Oh, Jenna, what a sweetie -pie you are!

    If you get a bunch of comments for a particular pair, you could put everyone’s name on a slip of paper and have Terry be the impartial drawer of names for each pair. They do this on knitting blogs all the time! They’re so fun! 😀

  10. Michelle says:

    You really are a sweetie-pie! What a fabulous idea. I’ve left comments on a couple.

  11. Angela says:

    Wow what a generous offer! So sweet!

  12. Coral says:

    I can’t believe you are offering to send people scissors, what a wonderful thought!!

    Hope all is going well your end.

  13. Cathy says:

    Thanks for letting me know about this, Jenna. For some reason, bloglines didn’t update for this post. You should see my poor, sad scissors. The paint is chipping off the handles! I put my name down for a few. You’re the best.

  14. Von says:

    I, too, was surprised at how many stitchers had only one pair of scissors, and some of them not the greatest. This is a terrific idea and you’re going to make lots of stitchers very happy. Perhaps you’ll spread the e-scissor collectivitus virus around, a much happier thing than e-coli or computer viruses. 😀

  15. Heather says:

    You are such a wonderful person to offer all these scissors up to good homes. And it’s quite a beautiful collection. I’d love to know where the ruby red ones are from (if you still know) that I posted a comment on. There, I’ve delurked!

  16. Heather says:

    Aha, problem solved. I was about to comment on here that there had been another Heather posting, but I now can see that it was Canadian Heather.

    I have put down that I really like the tangerine & lime ones, emerald ones and the bronze ones.

    What a wonderful thing to do.

  17. Cathy says:

    Wow! You amaze me. I know you will send all of these to good homes! I’m going to pass because I think I have my fair share of scissors. You are quite special!

  18. Svenja says:

    Jenna, you are very generous! The scissors are all beautiful. Thank you!

  19. Melanie says:

    What a lovely idea Jenna 🙂 I didn’t answer the SBQ, but I’m one of those who is (somewhat) bereft of scissors, so I’m off to take a look-see!

  20. KarenV says:

    That is so generous of you Jenna! I’m OK for scissors at the moment, having recently treated myself to a pair of Dinky-Dyes scissors, but I just wanted to say how kind you are to offer these up to everyone 🙂

  21. Loretta says:

    Wow….those are all stunning scissors!! Sharing the joy of scissors … it’s a beautiful thing for you to do : ) They all look fantastic!

  22. Carol says:

    You are so sweet and generous! I see so many I adore, but will not click – I have tons already and know many more will love getting them! Hope to see you at CATS – you are going, right??

  23. harsha says:

    Jenna Jenna Jenna… you’re such a kind soul. I entered too… *blusH*

    Thank you…

  24. Hi Jenna, I’ve been visiting your blog for a long time, admiring your works and having fun with some of the quiz you put on. I have a blog too, which is still a”newborn”, but I love it ’cause it’s my place for friends and crossstitch. I saw this kind of game with the scissors (I must be honest, I speak English but I didn’t really get all the things you wrote) and I had lots of fun playing it, and gave my vote to 4, no, maybe 5 scissors.
    Thank you for this, but also thank you for everytime in the past I spent a good time visiting your blog.
    See you soon
