I had to pick out an entire pass of quilting this week. As I was doing it I was thinking about my Tech Sunday post and how much I love both of my pairs of Fanmore snips.
Titanium snips with curved blades. They have hung on the front laser light post of my longarm for over 3 years and I love them. The curved blade lets me snip thread close to the quilt top without touching it. When I misplace them I stress out and end up looking for them until I find them. I do not start quilting without them. I am obsessed with those snips!
Recently I bought a pair of snips with a hooked blade. These things are awesome for when you have to rip stitches with the quilt still on your longarm. I used them for about 4 hours on Friday. They are wonderful. I was able to get under the stitches and it made ripping quick. I know that 4 hours does not sound quick, but it was an entire pass and I quilt dense. I also use a really tiny crochet hook at times, but did not need it on Friday with my new snips.
Just for the record I purchased both of these pairs of snips. I was not asked to review them nor have I been given anything to do a review. I just love them so much I wanted to share.
