Perfect for trimming loose sewing, quilting, and embroidery threads. Curved blades allow safer controlled cuts for everything from quilting and embroidery crafting, to surgical stitching, and even pet grooming. The 4" design allows for navigating closely around the embroidery hoop or sewing machine to single out wanted threads. The double bend on the handles are great for getting over embroidery hoops. A great gift for every sewing basket & embroidery collection.
