Here's what Karen has to say about her

Perfect Pins zoom
Perfect Pins

I have never before worked with a pin that is this thin. It is very, very skinny and very sharp. You can see the size in the photograph. Because the head on these pins is so small I find that I like to spill the pins onto a piece of felt, making it easier to pick them up. There are 50 pins in each little plastic tube.

We think they would be perfect for applique with batik fabrics as they are so fine they pierce the tight weave of the cloth.

Perfect Ovals zoom
Perfect Ovals

If you love your Perfect Circles® you will love the Perfect Ovals™. They are made from the same heat resistant plastic as the Perfect Circles® so you can use them with an iron on a medium heat setting. Inside each package are detailed directions along with 20 ovals, 10 sizes, 2 of each size. I love them for making grapes and flower petals and I have not doubt you will find even more used for them.

Perfect Stems

In this package are detailed directions and five different sizes of heat resistant strips. These strips will allow you to make perfect stems that are a little over 1/2", 3/8", 1/4", a little over 1/8" and 1/8" wide.

Here's what Karen has to say:
After many requests and much research I am finally able to bring you larger sizes of Perfect Circles®. There are ten different sizes ranging from 2-1/4” to 4-1/2” and they are made from heat resistant plastic so you can use them with an iron. These bigger sizes are great for the center of a Mariner’s Compass block, Drunkard’s Patch blocks, traditional appliqué and so much more.
Karen Kay. Buckley Perfect Scissors 4 inch

Comfortable Soft Green Handles with 4" Micro Serrated Blade. Great for those with stiffness in your hands. The micro serrated blades help to prevent frayed edges and keep the fabric from slipping so cutting is more accurate. Great for applique and for when you need to cut it "just so."

Here's what Karen has to say about her newest scissor introduction:

After many of you requested a medium size of our Perfect Scissors™ we are happy to provide them for you. As with all of our scissors they have a soft grip handle and a plastic protective cover. One blade is micro-serrated and one is a regular blade which can be sharpened. There is a small video clip on the opening page of the site (http://www.karenkaybuckley.com) if you would like more information.
Here's what Karen has to say about her 7 1/2" scissors:

I have been using nothing but serrarted edge scissors to cut my fabric for the past 25 years. I love the way the serrated blade cuts into my fabric. This special blade pulls the fabric into the scissors rather than pushing it alway like traditional scissors. Things you will like about these scissors...cushioned handle, easy for right or left hander to use, blades sharp to the very tip, serrated blade keeps fabric from fraying, light weight and comfortable. The 7 1/2" size are great for cutting single or mutiple layers of fabric. I can comfortably cut up to 4 layers. If your quilt has a lot of one shape, layer cutting saves a tremendous amount of time.
