Make smooth, mistake-free cuts with the help of performance-grade sewing scissors, shears and snippers from Sailrite®. In our broad assortment, you will find the perfect pair of comfortable and high-quality scissors for everything from industrial canvaswork to decorative edging. As always, you can trust Sailrite to supply you with sewing supplies made by the industry’s best brands, including Gingher®, Fiskars® and Omnigrid®. We offer affordable sewing scissors, pinking shears, rotary cutters, thread nippers, seam rippers and replacement rotary cutter blades in this large selection.

Because Sailrite specializes in supplying tools for sailmakers and canvasworkers, we can assist you in finding the right canvas or sailcloth shears for your particular needs. These applications often require very thick assemblies of heavyweight fabrics, so they must be able to slice heavy-duty fabrics without limiting precision. We recommend Gingher Bent Scissors for sailmaking, canvaswork and upholstery, as they feature a 5-inch cutting blade double-plated with chrome and nickel for added durability. These are bent-style scissors that allow for easier cutting on any tabletop or counter. Rotary fabric cutters are also a very helpful tool to have on hand while working with sailcloth and canvas.

We also provide a selection of thread nippers featuring sharp, knife-edge designs that allow you to easily snip heavy-duty threads and make quick cuts from thick fabrics. The Ergonomic Thread Snips by Omnigrid are a great choice for such applications, especially if you’ll be working for long hours because they feature a super-comfortable, soft-cushioned handle with an ergonomic design to reduce hand fatigue. Don’t forget to explore our selection of affordable rotary cutters and blades if you need an even easier option for cutting through heavyweight materials. These tools will work well on thick fabric, batting, paper, leather and vinyl.
