Serrated Scissors

Here at The Cotton Club, we have long been fans of serrated scissors. We love the way they HOLD on to what we are cutting. After a visit from teacher, designer and author, Karen Kay Buckley, we have another reason to love them. They make her top 10 list because the serrated edge prevents the fabric from raveling - just like a pinking shear only micro-sized. Of course! And for appliique, what could help more! From left to right, her favorites are: 3 1/2" Gingher Serrated Embroidery Scissors, 7" Serrated Scissors by Clover and 5 1/2" Serrated Scissors by Clover.

Bendable Bright Light

We think the Bendable Bright Light is one of the best new products on the market for sewers. It directs the bright white light EXACTLY where it is needed. Once you take the time to figure out where to mount it on the sewing machine and get the job done, you will be in sewing heaven for 100,000 hours. That is sewing 12 hours a day for 20 years!! It may seem like a big investment, but the truth is, we have already invested 5 times that much it lighting that didn't make the difference this one little light did. Being able to see well makes sewing much more enjoyable! To read more about this fine light Click Here.
