Yes, I do know the difference between leopard spots and cheetah spots. Unfortunately, Gingher doesn't. The print on the beloved Cheetah Scissors is actually a leopard pattern but that doesn't sound quite as cool as Cheetah so.....Cheetah it is! Of course, this set is designed to go with the Gingher Designer Series Cheetah Scissors, as I'm sure you guessed. If you don't have a pair, don't despair - these are not a limited edition so are still readily available through needlework shops, etc. And if your budget doesn't allow for those - any embroidery scissors should work! The set is designed to be stitched on 18 count or 36 count over 2 in order to fit your scissors.
