Friday Fun Fact!

Today's fun fact was suggested by Treadlette Rebecca! She wanted to talk about scissors.

Scissors are one of humankind's oldest technologies, and originally were made of a single curved piece of metal which acted as a spring.

Later, the hinged style was introduced - the painting at right from c.1565 clearly shows a hinged scissor style similar to a modern pair.

Today we have so many specialized scissors for every purpose - shears, trimmers, pinking, applique, thread snips, and more!

A note on left-handed models: there are actually two kinds. One simply switches the handles from a typical rightie setup, while another (such as Kai's "True Lefty") actually realigns the blades for a better cutting experience.

You can learn more about scissor history here!
