Day 4….Needful things for Quilters…

4daysDay 4….Dovo Scissors…

Now this “needful” thing is one of my top three…The Dovo scissors are imported from Germany…they are awesome to say the least…they are super light…beautifully constructed stainless steel..and we have a scissors for just about anything…the 4″ for an embroidery or thread snippers…the 5″ for utility all purpose, I use this one the most for all my wool cutting.  The 6″ is nice too as it has larger finger holes and has a nice long shear for even cutting.  The 3 pack scissors come in this beautiful Italian leather zip case…I hid mine for years from my three boys because of this case.  They are on special now til the end of the year for $200….Now don’t panic…I know this is not going to be in everybody’s  price range…We do however sell them individually on our site too!  But you must beg, stash money away or whatever you have to do…to get these they are that good!  We do carry them to shows,  if this is not a good time…But they never go on sale…bummer…only the 3 pack is on sale now.

Now just another little ditty…I do not use a paper scissors…I cut all my wool appliqués with the fusible web on with my 5″ scissors…I have never had to have them sharpend and they are as nice , tight, and sharp as the day I opened them…If you do plan on purchasing this beautiful set…remember…I may need to order more so please plan on not getting them for a few weeks…that means we will not charge you

IMG_8333IMG_8334them either until we ship too…sneaky..right?  Also, if this If I have to help you justify it further…every Quilter needs an heirloom scissors!  These can be handed down through the generations….you will have to specify that in your Will!  I wish I had my Grandmother’s scissors!   See all the Dovo scissors here: Dovo Scissors

The winner of a small Rowenta Travel Iron from yesterday’s post is….Comment #  57…Nick picked this one…he is stringing lights for our party tonight!!  Congratulations Janet…please send us your address and we will get this out to you when the event is over or when we get them in!!!

    I have always felt that the cost of a really good pair of scissors cannot be measured. If they work great, they are worth any price. These sound wonderful and I would love to try a pair. Thanks for sharing.

    I purchased the 5″ size from you at the Long Beach show las July. I really like them but think I may have left handed instead of right. I’m not really sure, but they are great which ever side is up! I would really like to have the whole set because these scissors are really awesome!

  45. December 21, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    I too LOVE the Dovo scissors! I have purchased two pairs in the past six months and they were well worth the price. They make cutting the wool applique pieces much easier.

    Merry Christmas to all!

  70. December 21, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    Love my Dovo scissors. Got them at the Oct Expo after your suggestion during your visit to our guild. I will have to save my pennies to acquire the complete set.

    OMG, I have been on a perpetual search for the perfect scissors. I have now accumulated at least 20.(all crummy) Even Ginghers are not what they are cracked up to be (too heavy) and they all need sharpening over and over and over. By the time you pay for all that sharpening, you can pay for the scissors.. Soooo its off to your site to buy a Christmas present for me. Yipee.. Have a merry Christmas.

    What a great idea to purchase these scissors not only to use (of course) but also as a family heirloom! Oh, my list is growing longer each day! Thank you for sharing your ‘needful things’ list!

    Love, Love these scissors. Also thank-you for posting the 12 days of Christmas. Lots of neat things, and tons of great ideas. Of course I will need one of everything. Can’t wait!!!

  111. December 21, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    Lisa, I remember my ma and grandma always had these steel sharp sharp scissors. No idea who got them. I was really sad when fiskars had to stop making their product line in Wausau and Athens WI and have China make them. Sad for the plants closing and locals losing their jobs but also the quality on fiskars is lost. I bought up a bunch of the Wausau made before they were gone! We need good tools! Thanks for letting me know about another quality alternative.

  112. December 21, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    I love a good pair of scissors! I am also waiting til the end to make my order of “needlful” things. I am sure that I can spend some of my Santa money for some….

    I agree the case is beautiful, will have to think of something to convince my hubby I need those.

  117. December 21, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Those scissors sound absolutely wonderful and the case itself is just gorgeous. Hoping I have a Christmas angel out there to bring me a set for Christmas.

    Enjoying your tips so much, will have to purchase some of the scissors. Thanks for all that you do

  119. December 21, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    I use Dovo scissors for my cross stitching. I love them so much that I won’t kit up a project without them. Maybe one day I will save enough for a large pair to keep with my quilting projects.

  120. 124 Jan

    Would love to have Dovo scissors. Will have to save my spare change.

    I want some Dovo Scissors….I already have lots of scissors….a girl can’t have too many nice tools. I want the travel iron, the ruler, the snips…..all that good stuff. Why? I LOVE to sew….and all the stuff that goes with it!!!
    Thanks for all the great tips, Lisa.

    You are right about these scissors, I have a tiny pair that I use for applique, and they are the best!

  125. 129 Debbie T
    December 21, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    I’ve aways used gingher scissors. I’ll have to save my pennies and give these a try. Thank you for all the hints.

  126. 130 Judy Berna
    December 21, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    I bought a pair from you when you were in Naperville a few years ago and it just dawned on me that I put them away. Where or where did I put them – probably in a special place. Will have to look when I return to IL. Could always use a pair down here in AZ.

  127. 131 Sarah
    December 21, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    Over the years I have collected many if the items you’ve highlighted but not the Dovo’s. TRUE STORY: My son lived in Leipzig Germany while he worked on his masters degree and the only thing I wanted him to bring back was Dovo scissors! He rode his bike, toured by train and even ended up at a sewing studio, but alas, he could not locate the scissors. He did however hang out with the older women while they stitched and collected some awesome “recycled” buttons. Picture that! 😀

  128. 132 Rhonda
    December 21, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    I want these scissors in the worst way…They are on my list so if you see my husband POINT him in the direction !!!!

  129. 133 Debby C
    December 21, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    Some of my quilting friends have the Dovo scissors. I too have always used the ginger. Time to start saving

    December 21, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    I have one pair and wish I had all three. Great scissors and easy on the hands.

    • December 21, 2012 at 3:16 pm

      Maybe the beautiful case would keep Georgie’s hands off them! Dovos have a wonderful feel. I would love to own a pair. . .or even better, a set. I have my mother’s Singers scissors. She even engraved her name in them so they wouldn’t get ‘lost’.

  131. 136 Rosemary Redhead
    December 21, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    I bought the dovo set when visiting your shop last year and gave them to my husband to give to me for Christmas last year. Unbeknownst to him I snuck out the 5″ scissors so I could continue on one of my wool projects. I then “snuck” them back into the case … he was none the wiser and my project was better because of the scissors!
    Merry Christmas…can’t wait to see what is highest on your list!

  132. 137 Lynn

    Oh I want these scissors so bad. I hope Santa is listening!

  134. December 21, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    I have a small pair and they really are the best. i will eventually get the whole set.

  135. 140 Kathy B.
    December 21, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    Wow – these scissors sound wonderful. Your tips are really useful. I didn’t realize there were so many nifty things I “needed!” Thanks again for the ideas!

    December 21, 2012 at 3:06 pm

    Oh how I love scissors! I have to admit I have quite a collection of Ginghers. I would love to give these a try! Maybe Santa could put an I owe you in my stocking this year!

  137. 142 Lianne
    December 21, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    Lisa, I thank you for your favorite things. And so does my favorite quilt shop! For the items I didn’t already own, I shopped locally! I hope she has Dovers!

    Merry Christmas!

    I’m loving your twelve days of Christmas! Saving now for a set of these scissors!

  140. 145 Mary Schreiner
    December 21, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    Like everyone else, I love all of your choices for favorite “things”. Santa is usually very generous with quilting supplies so I’m hoping he sees the post about these fantastic scissors. Thanks for adding to my holiday spirit with your daily postings! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
    PS…I sat a row in front of you and Nick at Minute Maid Park for the Moda party at the fall quilt market (2010, I believe) and felt like I was sitting right by my favorite “rock star”! Thanks for that “brush with fame”!

    • December 21, 2012 at 3:30 pm

      Maybe that beautiful case would help keep my Georgie’s hands off them! Dovos do have a wonderful feel. As a leftie I know how sore my hand can get with the wrong pair. I have my mother’s coveted set of Singers. She even engraved her name in them so they wouldn’t get ‘lost’. I have been enjoying your posts. Wish you had time to do it all the time. Merry Christmas.

    December 21, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    I agree Lisa, these are the best! My mother got me a pair when I first started sewing and they are like new and it has been many years. Thanks for the tips. A small pair of embroidery scissors would be all I want for Christmas. Thanks, M

    I only wish I could win the lottery so that I could buy all the things you have told us about. I guess you have to play the lottery first though. I am thinking of buying at least one of the pairs of scissors.. I am wondering if they make them in the type with one large blade for cutting close when appliquing?

  148. 154 Cindy D
    December 21, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    I have the medium size pair and I love them. They are very light and cut soooooo well. Might have to consider getting the other sizes also. Thanks, Lisa for sharing!

  149. 155 Vicki
    December 21, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    I have had my set of Dovo scissors for about 10 years..my favorite scissors to use..I have also used them for cutting wool with the fusible web…never had a problem with the scissors dulling…if you have never used them I gurantee you will love them….

  150. 156 Nancy D
    December 21, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Wow, maybe if I’m a good girl Santa will put some good scissors in my stocking! I am always in need of sharp scissors!

  154. 160 Susanne Elson
    December 21, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    As I’m fairly new to quilting, a really good pair of scissors seems like a good investment, but would be wonderful to win, as I’m saving for the biggest investment, a new sewing machine!

  155. December 21, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Having the right kind of scissors helps for the small details of wool or for my embroidery and hand sewing. I have never heard of this kind of scissors. Will have to check them out when we come to your retreat house in February.

  156. 162 Michelle S.
    December 21, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    Oh, I am so excited! I have these on my Christmas/Birthday List (my birthday is in December). I have wanted them for a while. Thank you for the discount. Merry Christmas, Michelle S.

  157. 163 Mary
    December 21, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    This is tempting! I could use a super good scissors! Hopefully, there will be a little money left in the bank account next week.

  158. December 21, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    Wow! Gorgeous! I lived in Germany and never thought about scissors then..I missed out. Tomorrow is my bday…a girl can dream.

    I too do not have my grandmother’s scissors, but I am blessed to have my great grandmother, Moggie’s featherweight sewing machine, her thimble and 2 quilts she made and used. She was in my life until I was 19. Someday I would like to own the scissors you feature today. It’s just not the time right now. Thank you for all the great information.

    Having purchased one pair I agree they are something special! The tips/products you have been writing about have been very useful!

  165. December 21, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    🎄The Dovo scissors were already on my wish list-saw you talking about them in one of your videos. Like how you say you use them to cut ‘paper’ as well as wool. My Mom was always scolding me to not cut paper with her ‘good’ scissors. If ‘The Claus’ does not come through, I will be ordering a set🎄

  166. 172 Lisa K
    December 21, 2012 at 4:38 pm

  169. December 21, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    I had not heard of Dovo scissors, so I’m happier than ever that I have had the pleasure of following your “needful things” posts. I have a pair of Ginghers that I’ve had for around 30 years, and love them, but I’ve been wanting another pair of GOOD scissors for quite awhile…My birthday is in April, I may have to tell my husband that I’m ordering my present!

  170. 176 Charlotte S
    December 21, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    Good scissors make a big difference, I learned that from my mom, she had to hide her good sewing scissors from us kids, we didn’t know any better!

  172. 178 Penny
    December 21, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    Good scissors are essential. Quality counts. I have Ghinger embroidery scissors and love them, but have not heard of Dovo scissors before this.

  173. December 21, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    Oh! I love these scissors and the beautiful leather case! Sure wish I could afford a set this year but my funds are limited and yet I can wish and maybe, just maybe I will find a set under my tree!

  174. 180 Cindi P.

    My list just keeps getting longer and longer. I am finding that I tend to ‘put up’ & ‘make do’ with what I have. I believe this is the season to update my sewing equipment. Dovo scissors, here I come; especially since I got the gift card in the mail yesterday (way to go Lisa’s elves) that my hubby got me using the coupon book!

  176. 182 Sandy
    December 21, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    December 21, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    Your tips have been great, very helpful. Thank you for thinking of our local shops, I love your concern for America. You have sold me on several items. Many I can really use, as I need to do something with this stash I have so lovingly worked to build or should I say my husband worked, I built! Merry Christmas and have a Blessed New Year.

  184. December 21, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    The case is worth the price it’s beautiful.

  185. December 21, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    What beautiful scissors these are. I have misplaced my good shears, can’t find them anywhere…darn. Maybe I need to look at the Dovo as my replacement. Don’t really need dressmaker shears so much any more. Thanks for your tips. I am learning so much, thank you.

  186. 192 Barbara Jenson

    December 21, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    Lisa, I have enjoyed all of your posts, but today’s brought tears to my eyes. My grandmother taught me how to sew, knit and crochet. I would give anything to have something of hers, but most of all I would love to just thank her for all she taught me. I was 10 when she passed away, but her memory last forever. I am looking forward to passing my love of quilting on to my 4 & 2 year old granddaughters. Now I need to check out the scissors – thanks again.

  199. December 21, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Looks like a fantastic set of scissors. I have some Dovo embroidery scissors and I agree, they are the best.

    I love your outdoor fridge! Here in Michigan that’s what we use our 3-season porch for in the winter. It sure does work good during the holidays!!

  201. 207 Carol Eberhardt
    December 21, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    I hereby confess to buying the best scissors I can find with a 50 percent off coupon. My husband tells me we will be 69/70 years old when our kids’ college loans are paid, so perhaps at that point I will invest! Even the case they come in is beautiful! Hopefully I will have a daughter in law by then who would love to inherit them, too. So I will put Dovo scissors on my bucket list!

  202. 208 Debby
    December 21, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    Love the look of those scissors…how wonderful they must be if you have used your original for wool and they are still in great working order!!

    December 21, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    Love my Dovo scissors purchased from a local shop. I actually went back to get another pair (drive 1.15 hrs) and they no longer carry. Nice to know where I can go and support a shop.

    PS I also use them to cut my Trixie’s (dogs) hair….yes I could use a dedicated pair for sewing!

  204. December 21, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    I’m a huge fan of Dovo scissors! Can second all of Lisa’s comments about them…..
    Merry Christmas!

    These scissors look amazing, I may just have to check them out being my wonderful sister got me a gift cert. from your store today in the mail. And of course I did not open it yet to find out for sure that is what it is. Because the outside said “Do not open till Christmas”. Can’t wait till Christmas!!

    Wow! These scissors look so pretty they belong on display. You’ve shown so many got-to-haves this week. I now have several more things to add to my wish list. I have really enjoyed this series and wish it were longer than 12 days. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the tips on 12 essential needful things. I think I “need” these beautiful scissors.

  208. December 21, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    I’ve heard so many good things about these scissors–they are on my “someday” list. I think this is the first needful thing that I didn’t already have except for the spray can handle. I love it for painting, it just never occurred to me to use it on my sizing can!

  209. December 21, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Yes-well crafted tools last a lifetime and beyond

    These look wonderful!!! And no guy would think to open a zippered case to use one!!!!! I have many men in my house who borrow things and never bring them back!!

    Just discovered your website and love it! So many interesting things…maybe I can persuade my hubby to get me the scissors for Christmas – next year. Have a great holiday, Judy

    I’ve heard about these scissors before. Definitely something to think about.

  215. December 21, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Thee scissors look wonderful but are definitely out of my price range. I had never heard of them before so I will definitely be learning more about them.,

    I ordered the Dovo scissors online and when I got them it made me smile. They look just like a pair of scissors my grandma had and she was 100% German. I never found them when she passed away but now I feel I have found them and they are mine!

    Those scissors sound wonderful. I’ll have to add those to my must have list. It’s so much fun to get new scissors and these sound like they’d keep someone happy for a very, very long time.

    I am pretty sure a girl who is turning 50 next year is long overdue for a pair (or a trio!) of Dovo scissors! 50 will be fabulous! My list is growing for more ‘needful’ things.

    I have the 4″ scissors and love them. Now I believe that the 5″ scissors will be next on my list. Great tools make quilting even more fun. Thanks for sharing your favorites..

  220. December 21, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    I bought a fancy pair of these!! But the 5″ looks REAL nice! If only… a girls can dream.

    I have the 4″ Dovo scissors, it’s like having a small diamond…a bigger Dovo would be nice, just like a bigger diamond…lol! I share all my quilting stuff with my daughters. Try sharing an iron, scissors, rotar cutter, sewing machine, etc. I love to hear my girls say “Mom can I use (fill in the blank)” & I even deliver it so I can check out the new sewing project. Good times with my girls. Thank you for your tips & special gifts.

    I am a little addicted to scissors. These will definitely go on a wish list. I would love to have a really good pair to hand down since I have a pair of my mom’s “good” ones!

    Those scissors sound wonderful, and the case is just lovely! They are now on my wish list. That little homespun quilt you are displaying them on is cute too.
    Looking forward to seeing what your Needful Things are for the last 3 days.

    Wow……..I would LOVE to have the set of Dovo scissors, but I am very happy to own one pair of the 5 inchers that I bought from you folks at one of the shows. They are GREAT scissors!

  229. December 21, 2012 at 9:18 pm

    Those scissors sound wonderful! I’ll start saving now. 🙂

    I have one pair of Dovo scissors and I love them, I purchase them from y’all in Paducah 4 or 5 years ago. I would like to tell you that we have been busy using your Sugar coated Pecan recipe from your book Primitive Christmas. This is the best recipe I have found for coating pecans. Great projects and recipes makes this a book I pull out every year. Thanks for all the great tips, I hate to see it end.

    Maybe Santa can bring me these (even if they will arrive a little late). I have been a real good girl.

    I have my great grandma’s embroidery on pillowcases, and my grandma’s pinking shears. It’s so special to have these heirlooms and know you are holding what their hands have held.

    December 21, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    Ok I admit I do have a scissor fetish! Still I have never had a pair of Dovo’s. I have heard of them, but don’t even know anyone who has a pair so i can try them out! I’m really intrigued. Are you bringing any along to Brigham City next month????

  238. 245 Cathy Weatherford
    December 21, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    I too would love a pair of these scissors. Maybe I will be the Grandma who one of the granddaughters inherit them from. That would be neat.

    Those scissors look quite wonderful. Sadly, my grandma was poor in the hills of Tenn and she had 28 grandkids…..I did not expect to have anything handed down.

    A beautiful christmas present this would make but doesn’t hold a candle to the gift our family received today. A beautiful 6 lbs. 10 oz. baby boy Asher Loyd. He joins a 3 year old sister. Blessings abound!!!! Dovo scissors would be right up there, though.

    Purchasing a set of Dovo scissors is on my bucket list. Hopefully sooner than later. Thanks so much Lisa for

    These scissors look like a must have in one’s sewing basket 🙂
    I’m not sure what it is about scissors, I like all kinds. Would love to have a pair of these!!
    Thanks for your tips, and opportunity to win!!

    Nice scissors. It is important to have good tools.

  248. December 21, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    I agree about the scissors and will share something else with you……..I have a friend who is a Vice president of a German steel company and he told me that it is a total myth that you can’t use your best shears for paper…….he told me we could absolutely use our best for fabric and paper with no danger. Do you believe?? And my mother would have killed me if I cut my paper dolls with her sewing scissors. I love your needful things.
    Can’t wait to read the next one after the coma wears off………….When the pictures came thru it was blurry….and I thought “good grief” she has entered into the coma already………LOL Happy Holidays and thanks for the great year of designs, instruction, hints et al.

    I am sure the scissors are awesome – the case alone is fabulous looks like tooled leather. I have my mom’s embroidery scissors – just a plain simple pair – but they bring back memories of her at the treadle machine and doing hand work which luckily she taught me. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  250. 257 Diane K
    December 21, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Those scissors and the case look wonderful. I have seen them on your website and drooled over them. This is another great suggestion.

    I put a pair of Dovo scissors on my Christmas list this year. I have been collecting my tools and materials to start working on my wool applique kits. They really are beautiful scissors. I held a pair at your booth at Quilt Extravaganza in September. As soon as I got on the bus I regretted not purchasing them! Thanks for all of your hints and tips. I’m learing alot!

    Well, I can’t wait for my grandma to hand down anything to me….I’m the grandma, and I have my first granddaughter…3 months old. I better save up for that wonderful set of scissors so I get plenty of quilting in before I hand them down to her!

  254. 261 Debbie
    December 22, 2012 at 2:46 am

    If I would win these wonderful scissors I may have to invest in another set! I have 2 daughters, and would hate to cause a argument over who got the scissors!

    I HAVE to have some GOOD scissors! I have a lot of wool and a few of your patterns, gathered at the AQS show in Grand Rapids last August. Your booth was fantastic and the only one with lines of people waiting to see everything! Congrats !

    December 22, 2012 at 7:14 am

    Like you Lisa, I love the Dovo scissors. They are very smooth cutting and so light weight. They stay so sharp, any time I need to clip a seam I can rely on my Dovo to snip the fabric with the tip of the scissors. They are the best.

  259. 266 Candee
    December 22, 2012 at 8:13 am

    Ooo, what a special treat these would be. Need to add these to my list!

  260. 267 Janet Friedrich
    December 22, 2012 at 8:19 am

    Ok, make that up to 5 things on my list to order … I’ll get the scissors too if I get that bonus I’m hoping for! And I won the iron (guess that puts me at 4 things to buy)! Woohoo! Thanks so much … I need to figure out where to send my address!

  261. December 22, 2012 at 8:30 am

    Thanks! I never knew about these scissors, but they sound terrific! Imagine, not having to worry about cutting through fabric or paper! Merry Christmas to all!

    December 22, 2012 at 8:55 am

    I treasure my heirlooms. My thimbles from my mom and such. I would love to have those scissors to pass down to my daughter. The case is gorgeous! ‘Tis the season of HOPE…so I will HOPE! Kristy in Ohio

    I have my grandmas pinking shears; and I treasure them. Thinking all the projects she worked on. These scissors would be perfect to pass down like that.

    I would love to have this set of scissors!! Many “gadgets” I have purchased throughout the years are just that – simply gadgets, have never been really that useful. But, oh I would adore these scissors, and to know that they will cut my wool just the way I want it. Santa, are you reading this?

  265. 272 Elaine Petrik

    Right tools for the right job! That is what my husband always says…this is how I can justify paying for these scissors…he, he.

  268. 275 Jody R
    December 22, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    I will definitely put these on my wish list. Have bought so many cheaper scissors over the years and have to keep rebuying because those don’t stay sharp. Have loved all your tips!
