Avoid Eyestrain While You Enjoy Your Craft

If you enjoy sewing, crafting, needlepoint, embroidery, weaving, or applique, you may notice eyestrain, headaches or failing eyesight.  If you dread giving up your hobby because you are noticing eyestrain, read on, this article is for you.

If you notice that after working on your current creation you have a headache or aching eyes, this may be due to overworking your eyes, or eyestrain.  Close work is often associated with eyestrain and other eye problems.  However with proper lighting and magnification, eyestrain can easily be minimized.  As a disclaimer, we are not doctors at Famore Cutlery, and if you suffer from eyestrain, we highly recommend that you get your eyes tested by a qualified optician even if you wear glasses. Regular eye tests will catch and correct minor changes in your vision and reduce the instance of long-term vision problems due to close work.

How to use applique scissors for holiday projects

Applique scissors make the precise process of cutting around applique objects easier. Applique refers to sewing or ironing pieces of fabric on top of each other to create a textured, neat effect that can only be achieved by perfectly trimmed fabric layers. Fortunately, Famore has created a variety of specialty scissors that are engineered to make your holiday applique project cutting exact.

Never stab your fabric with pointy scissors again by refining your applique projects with Blunt Tip Pocket Safety Scissors!

August 2016 


Meeting our fellow bloggers and educators is something we at Famore are very passionate about. In fact, if you recall back in May, we 'sheared our excitement' with you in regards to our promoters and wanted to showcase them on our website! We took that as a starting point to gain more traction with bloggers and educators.

What did we do, you ask? We put on our 'big boy pants' and took on the 'blogosphere' to see who we could find. We were certain we could find people who had the same passion for the industry as we did...
