The best scissors to snip threads at the surface of the quilt while on the longarm frame are mini scissors.
Handi Quilter has two choices. The curved tip of the HQ Mini Scissors is perfect for snipping threads right at the quilt surface. Large finger holes in the handles fit most quilters. High-quality steel means these stay sharp for a very long time.
The HQ Comfort Grip Mini Scissors feature a soft easy-on-the-fingers grip for comfortable snipping. With super-sharp cutting blades and point (with a protective cap), these mini scissors accommodate quilters with larger fingers.
The perfect companion for either pair of HQ Mini Scissors is the HQ Zinger. Clip it to your shirt or machine and your scissors will always be right where you need them.
