Out with the Old, In with the New

I decided it was time to buy a new rotary cutter.  My old one was okay; I tried an Olfa cutter with a different grip at a sewing retreat a few months ago.  I liked the feel of it so I decided to let the old one go!

I could not decide on the size I should get and Nancy's Notions had a special sale so I took advantage of the and bought two.

I also purchased this Fiskars Easy Change Fabric Cutter Knife.  It comes with three different blades used for different purposes.



Lastly, I needed a new cutting mat.  The one I had was bent/warped and not usable.  This is a folding mat which when opened it truly lays flat.


Hoping for some sewing time soon!!!

  1. I finally sprung for a new rotary cutter and got a Kai. Gotta say I love it. Hope you enjoy your new "toys."

    1. I have to say I don't know much about Kai products, though I have heard the name before. I just got an opportunity to try out my new 45m rotary cutter.

    1. I got it from Nancy's Notions. That is the only place that I have seen a folding mat.
