Whilst we’re all getting excited about tonight’s episode of The Great British Sewing Bee, wondering who will make it through to the finals (can’t believe it’s almost over already!) would you like the chance to win the dressmaking scissors used in the show?
Those distinctive orange handled scissors are in fact Fiskars dressmaking scissors (RRP. £21.99) and Fiskars are kindly giving us 2 pairs to giveaway this evening.
To enter either comment below or tweet us @sewingdirectory to tell us when you first came across Fiskars scissors?
I first discovered them as a child when asking my mum why her scissors had such colourful handles. Being a left-handed dressmaker she struggled to find good quality left handed shears so has used Fiskars for her whole career.
Do share your story below, or on Twitter and we’ll pick a couple of winners at random after tonight’s show.
Terms & conditions - UK & Ireland only – Ends midnight Tuesday 16th April. Winners will be announced on this blog on the 17th April. If commenting below please ensure I have a way of contacting you if you win.
Whilst we’re talking about Fiskars I have to say I recently bought a pair of their new Servo Cut scissors (shockingly white handled instead of orange!) and they are brilliant, they cut through fabric as if it was paper, even managed 4 layers of fabric plus 2 layers of wadding a couple days ago with no problem. Guess this is one family tradition that will be continuing! ;-)
