Quite a few CCQ instructors own KAI scissors and love them. So, when the scissors used in our prison quilting classes for the past 15 years started to wear out, we decided to give them a call. After hearing about our program, KAI donated 20 pairs of their 6 1/4″ sewing scissors. They also offered that we could purchase four pairs of their 8 1/2″ dressmaker shears at their wholesale price.
We are so grateful to KAI for their generous donation. According to their website, “KAI sewing scissors and shears are hand polished and balanced allowing for fatigue-free cutting on all types of fabrics. Soft ergonomic handle grips and hardened stainless steel blades offer superior cutting action for quilting, crafting or dressmaking.” KAI scissors are generally sold in quilt shops and are also available directly from kaiscissors.com.
