New Gingher Scissors---FREEDOM

I am so excited. Today my friend Chris asked me to go on a road trip
to St. Cloud. We decided to go to Crafts Direct and Joann's.
We hit the Bonanza for lunch, and off shopping.

After our visit to Crafts Direct and the St. Cloud Joann's,
we decided to stop at the Joann's in Maple Grove. Whenever
we visit Joann's we check out the Ginghers, and low and behold
we hit the mother load----a brand new Gingher scissors--FREEDOM.
We couldn't believe it because we had no idea Gingher was even
releasing a new scissors, since they had just released the Emma's
a couple of weeks ago. We cleaned out two Joann's of their Freedom's
and I checked out two more Joann's to see if we could find anymore,
but no luck. I had been to five Joann's today. And the best news was
all their scissors were 50% off!!!!

So now the Stitching Squad all have a new scissor for our collection.

Here is a picture of our new acquisition:

All in all it was a very good shopping day!!!

I am sooo envious! I never did find any Emma's...oh well. But I absolutely MUST find the new freedom scissors!!! I like them so much better than the last patriotic scissors Gingher put out (which I also passed up.)

Love the new scissors...I don't even collect them, but I like the flag stuff...

I'm wondering...if you cleaned out the JoAnn's, are you going to let scissorsnut sell them on e-bay?

Goodness, I didn't know there was another designer scissor out, either! They look awesome in your picture. I'll have to check around here at the JoAnn stores.
