Gingher Over-Loved

I must get my favorite Ginghers sharpened. A year ago I chomped a pin in half. I remember clearly what I was doing when I did it. I was making some pillows out of left over decorator fabric and was trimming the edge of one side. "Boy is this decorator fabric thick, I can barely cut through it" I said to myself as I leaned into it. Finally the scissor blades met and a piece of pin went shooting off of my work table.
{click, undo, undo, undo} ... oh, real life, can't do that ... drat!
So now I have this lovely little chip in the upper part of the blade and I've known ever since that I need to get it sharpened. I just hope it won't be to hard for the blade to be repaired.

Good news, recently I found out the best thing to do for sharpening Ginghers is to send it to the manufacture. I am going to do just that since I won't be cutting any fabric for most of June. It takes 3-4 four weeks and they still only charge $7.50 for US customers! I'm in!
