A couple of new ideas that might make your life easier when cutting
Rotary turntable cutting mat for Patchwork
Valerie doesn’t often purchase new tools – she likes the comfort factor of the familiar – but these two products do make her life easier.
The rotary turntable keeps you safe; it allows you to move the fabric into position easily and safely but without picking it up or turning yourself into a contorsionist. Not the cheapest item to purchase but then again, good tools are worth their weight in gold.
The Cutting Edge Rulers
This new range of The Cutting Edge rulers hafve a diamond powder incrusted edge to maintain your blade sharper for longer (and one of Valerie’s students used it for a couple of hours and proved that is did actually sharpen as it went because she had started the day with a small glitch which had meant cutting twice each time). There are 5 sizes of square ruler and 4 sizes of rectangle rulers.
