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!)
