    Hey Mimi! I deserve a pair of electric scissors because I've been working on my living room drapes since November and one of the reasons it has taken me so long is that I'm terrified to cut the fabric and mess up. O_O These scissors would really help me overcome my fear. :D

  13. MiMi!!!!!! Love your Life first of all. xoxo I have been a fan for so long but I have yet to get started on a project for myself. Why should I win? Im a mother who has a full-time job and I am also a full-time student. Time management are my best assets when getting through any task. I would love to make my sewing projects simpler and more convenient with these babies. I made my daughter a blanket as my first project and it wasn't hard at all but I had a tough time cutting with my scissors. Soooo instead of me buying new ones I'm crossing my fingers, toes, arms, eyes and legs for these. :)

  33. Hi Mimi. Several reasons why I'd love them:
    1) I'm not a steady cutter
    2) This is a time-saving tool (which would allow me to dive into other projects that are calling) :-)
    3) It can blend into any sewing room, or "craft corner"-which is what I have. :-).

    Thanks for taking the time to do these give a ways. Very nice and generous of Simplicity to donate these tools. :-).

  37. Would love these. These can be the answer to me not having to buy so many scissors so many times. My household tend to 'need' my sewing scissors for every projects (kids w/projects and Dad with any and everything. Everytime I go to cut my material - I just know someone used my shears to cut everything from paper to who knows what. I hide them, they find them - our apartment does not have enough hiding spots. A pair of these will not eliminate my problems, but would be a start. I'm hoping I wouldn't have to go out to 'buy and hide' yet again. :-) Great video by the way, you are the most generous of them all. Thanks MimiG

  38. I had a pair years ago and our kid's sewing club used them for making a rag quilt. Boy did those scissors help! I'm not sure I would ever want to make another rag quilt without using electric scissors! Since my old ones are long gone, I would love to win this one. :) Thanks for all you do, Mimi! I can't imagine trying to move and keep your sewing and blogging going.

  68. Hello to you! You have inspired me sooooo very much; I always wanted to learn to sew and your tutorials make it look so doable. Because of you, I've gone out and purchased a sewing machine, fabrics, notions and even a few of your tutorials. However, despite all of your great instructions...I am AFRAID to cut material because I think I will ruin it, LOL!!! Shaky hands from fear is not making anything better. My husband laughs/fusses at me because I have material but afraid to make fashions. I think these scissors would inspire me to really move forward and make my first garment after YEARS of hesitation and a boatload of sewing patterns and fabric. It will also help me to shut down the sarcastic and snide comments of my husband, hahaha! Thanks lady for all that you do to help the underdogs like us actually believe we can achieve sewing greatness. Much love and life!

  72. Hi Mimi, I desire and deserve to win a pair of electric scissors because I want to get more exercise and lose weight. Yes, more exercise and lose weight. Electric scissors will allow me to minimize the aches I get from doing a lot of cutting and at the same time allow me to save that strength on my dominant hand for playing tennis (which is one of the only two forms of exercise I enjoy). Thanks for your consideration.

    ReplyDelete
  73. MimiG...I have been so happy with your tutorials. I have sewn for years and my projects never came out looking professional but every thing changed when I discovered your site. I look MAH-VE-LOUS! LOL I could be even better with those scissors. Thanks in advance for the win and thanks again for your wonderful tutorials.

  74. Hello! I have a passion for sewing and lately I was diagnosed with carpel tunnel. It very hard for me to cut sometimes. I never heard of this item. However, I think it will help me out alot with cutting patterns amd other items.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Great demo! Oh my gosh, I NEED THESE IN MY LIFE. I am one who hated cutting out my fabrics until I was introduced to the rotary cutter. Wow, these puppies sliced through that denim like butter. I am impressed and would love to win a pair. I already have thought of a ton of uses I've thought of outside of the sewing room as well, like breaking down all of boxes that my fabric was delivered in ;-). Thanks for the opportunity to win a pair!

  98. Hi Mimi, I am loving learning from you. I bought my first sewing machine last year and have yet to use it. I've been watching your you tube channel and plan on making your maxi skirt for my first project. I've have been slowly getting my sewing room together and just felt like I could'nt use it until everything was together first. I'm almost there and would love to add these electric scissors to my supplies, I'll take anything to help me hopefully cut straight line. Thanks for all that you do.

  107. I was just in Joann's looking at these scissors today. The last experience I had with electric scissors was in elementary school...I used them, not knowing they were electric, and wound up cutting my bangs in half. Btw, this was the night before school pictures. Needless to say my mom was furious and i haven't touched a pair since. I have been following your blog for a while now and you are so inspiring that I asked my mom to teach me how to sew from a pattern. Currently i just sew without one but I know I am limiting myself. I am ready to get fully involved in sewing and I know these electric scissors will be beneficial to my progress. Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Hi Mimi, I would love to win a pair of electric sissors cuz I have corprol tunnel in my hands an surgery and I find it difficult sometimes cutting my material. So these sissors would be a great asset to me. They look great!
