Be an expert fabric cutter with 9” shears from Gold Star
Jun '12

There's no substitute for a good pair of shears or scissors. No matter how big your sewing or tailoring company has gottenyou'll still need to get in with a pair of shears and cut some fabric a few times a day at least. Any tailor or dressmaker worth their salt wouldn't look like the consummate professional without a fine pair of scissors at arm's length.

With the line of house-made cutting tools from Golden Cutting & Sewing Supplies, the premier supplier of sewing supplies in Los Angeles, and their online retailer, GoldStarTool.com, you'll be cutting, snipping and nipping for years without worrying about dulling or rust, provided you know how to maintain your equipment.

If you've run into stubborn textiles that fight your shears as you fruitlessly squeeze and bend your scissors, only to rip and tear through the fabric, leaving an unprofessional, ripped edge, you learned the value of a great pair of scissors the hard way.

The Gold Star brand includes a pair of 9 inch shears that make you into the fabric cutting expert on your factory floor. The titanium blades will never rust, of course, but they also ship diamond-sharp and perfectly honed for the needs of a sewing professional. You'll cleanly slice through your fabrics every time.

If you want your Gold Star shears to stay smart and in cutting shape, sharpening is important, but so are your practices. If you find yourself forcing cuts, you're in danger of putting undue stress on your shears' alignment, and it's time to sharpen. Watch what you're doing, or you're apt to dull your blades on a pin. Keep lint out of your pivot screw by wiping your blades clean after each use. Use good sense about oiling; a tiny drop is enough.

As per common sense, don't drop your scissors or shears, because it can wreak havoc on all your good practices, and when you store them, put them somewhere safe and dry, like back in the beautiful Gold Star gift box they came in. Their warranty means if you follow all these practices, you and your Gold Star Tool shears will be cutting together for a lifetime.

If you're a discerning fabric cutter, keep an eye on GoldStarTool.com for new shears and scissors, plus their great new cutting machines and small rotary bladed cutters. GoldStarTool.com is also your source for sewing machine parts, along with supplies for every step in the clothing design, production, and marketing process.
