Sharpen your fabric shears:

Quilter's Corner - Middlebury Sew-N-Vac (see above)

Tip: Do not try to sharpen shears yourself.  Every manufacturer has a unique blade angle which changes over the length of the blade.  It is difficult to execute this without training.  Most manufacturers offer a mail-away sharpening service for their products, check with your brand.


Oil your shears: LDH Scissors (don't overdue it!)
