I always like to take some hand sewing with me on long journeys, usually some appliqué. I cut out the pieces before I travel, but read that the rules on carrying scissors in hand baggage had changed, and that scissors with blades of less than 6 centimetres in length were allowed, so decided to try them out. I put my good scissors into my case - I've never forgotten the time when my husband decided to rearrange the luggage and I witnessed my best Fiskars embroidery scissors (which I had packed safely in my case) being tossed into the contraband bin! I didn't want that to happen again, so put some cheap scissors into my bag with my sewing, and waited to see what would transpire.
