Oops Embroidery Scissors

April 24th, 2007 at 09:05 am

After arriving a couple hours early and a successful check in at the airport a couple days ago, I settled down to do some cross stitching until my flight would board.

Happily working away with my scissors in my lap. When it struck me...

Oops, sharp objects not allowed. I kept working a little while more showing no alarm. Then slipped them inside the book of patterns and packed up my tote bag.

Hoped the scissors would not be taken away, as it was the only pair I brought. I wondered if even the actual needles would be taken away Frown

What about the return trip?

    It really depends. My mom constantly sews and has been hit and miss, but I think closer to 9/11 they got stricter and lately they don't care as much. Of course, you might find an overzealous screener though.

    Actually you can take scissors up to 4 inches long now.
