Ye gods, if anyone touches my Japanese sewing scissors,* there will be blood. And not mine.

My dad once sewed a shaped tarp forwards and backwards on my mom’s 1959 Kenmore, an all-steel machine that was able to tolerate the abuse even though my dad never did figure out how to use the backstitch toggle.
