Rotary Rulers and cutting Equipment with Valerie
 
 

Workshops

In this ‘free to all members’ video, there is very helpful information from Valerie about the tools that we now take for granted – the rotary cutter and rulers/templates;  many of them are made with only right-handed people in mind – so if you are left handed and struggling it might not be your fault!    (but do take care that you know how to put the blade into your rotary cutter correctly too – if in doubt – check this out!).Watch Now+
