    These are a lot of good tips. :) Also important, never let anyone use your sewing scissors to cut paper or other things because they'll get dull. My husband isn't allowed to touch my dressmaker's shears. XD

    Me too! Thirty-odd years on, he's getting used to the idea now, though still doesn't agree that he could possibly spoil my precious scissors by cutting the odd bit of wallpaper or wire!! Lol.

    I tell him if he ruins them he buys me new ones. It helps, lol. :)

    A scissors sharpener guy told me that polar fleece type fabrics dull scissors very fast. I now keep a spare pair just for that, so one pair is always sharp. And I do use the aluminum foil trick ~ it really works well.

    My mother in law (an amazing quilter) taught me just about everything I know about sewing. The best tip: if you see fabric you love buy it even if you don't have a project in mind.
