I’m a little impatient. There I’ve said it. I love my thread snips because they are easy to grab quickly, I don’t need to stop sewing and carefully put my fingers in iddie-biddie little finger holes. I just reach grab, and snip the threads.
Now there are many versions of thread snips, some expensive and sharpen-able. Some cheap and plastic. But these are my favorite. All metal, I don’t get pinched by them, and when they are dull I should throw them away. I’m not good at that. These only cost a $1 or $2, and mine have lasted for years – remember I said I should throw them out when they get dull – yup that’s a problem.
