I’m delighted to introduce a new item to the Beyond Measure range of leather goods, made especially for us by Matthew Riley of Awl Leather. Many of you have been asking for a larger case for your dressmaking shears, so here it is at last – The Leather Shear Case!
We went through several prototypes, taking on board comments and feedback. In the end we realised that simple is best! So we took the original case design for smaller scissors (which has been so popular) as a starting point. We tend to work with the Ernest Wright scissors that we sell in the shop, so scaled up the case up to fit their 8″ shears. The good thing about the original design is it also protects the enamel handles, something that seemed important to our customers. It also means that as the case is less ‘fitted’, it will work with other brands of scissors of similar dimensions (you’d be surprised how much variation there is out there!).
Available in lots of juicy colours, the leather is of the highest quality, with the Beyond Measure logo etched neatly on the back. The cases have been fully lined with bonded 100% wool felt to protect both your scissors and the leather. A larger brass stud keeps your shears in place so you can thrown them in your bag (as I do) or store them carefully in your sewing storage. Either way they will be kept safe, sharp and dust free, ready for your next project.
We have limited stock of our first delivery available in the shop now. Please get in touch if you wish to place pre-orders for the Autumn or Winter. I do hope you like them!
