The new Pro Cut Soft Handle Fabric Shears


Famore Cutlery 
Emerging software and technology is affecting the sewing, quilting and embroidery industry in a wide range of different ways. For starters, recent advancements have made it possible to design equipment that is dramatically more precise and effective than ever before. Even a high quality pair of scissors from 15 years ago, for example, pales in comparison to the types of products that are available today. It is with that spirit of innovation in mind that Famoré Cutlery is proud to unveil its 8" Soft Handle Fabric Shears that bring superior power and true craftsmanship to a wide range of different purposes.

Quilts For Kids on the Famore Newsletter

 

Linda Arye establishes Quilts for Kids philanthropic organization 


Famore Cutlery 
Once upon a time, Linda Arye was an interior designer who happened to notice that fabric from a design center's showroom in her area was throwing out sample fabrics by the thousands of pounds on a regular basis. As anyone with a passion for all things fashion and design would, she thought this was an unfortunate waste. When the showrooms were more than happy to give it all to her rather than to see it end up in a landfill, Linda started Quilts For Kids, Inc. as a way to re-purpose fabric and comfort children in need at the same time. While this realization does play an important role in her decision to ultimately found "Quilts for Kids," it is only part of the story.

Cutting through time: A brief history of scissors


Famore Cutlery 
Found in nearly every home in America, and most around the world as well, one ingenious hand-operated tool has helped keep us clothed, fed, employed, entertained, well-groomed and even assisted with lawn, agricultural and medical care for thousands of years. What one tool? Scissors!

Today, fine scissor makers continue to use polished steel to create scissors capable of making clean cuts on the finest silks, as well as the heaviest leathers. Even as technology takes over many of the tasks in our lives, nearly every home still contains a pair, or more, of quality scissors for sewing, crafting, and general cutting needs.

Benefits of emerging technology in the sewing, quilting and embroidery industry


Famore Cutlery 

Great-Grandma would never have envisioned sewing with anything other than a treadle sewing machine or by hand. Quilting and embroidery back in the day were strictly accomplished by hand. Quilting bees, with multiple women seated around large quilting frames working on hand-stitching single quilts, were the norm. 

Contemporary seamstresses, quilters, and embroiderers, however, enjoy the benefits of emerging software and technology that have begun to revolutionize these respective industry specialties. While some individuals may still choose the old-fashioned methods for select projects to achieve a certain "look" or outcome, many enjoy the increased options and level of productivity modern and emerging methods offer.
