In between the crazy rushes of customers, I did get an opportunity to get out and check out a few other vendors and came across this new tool that I just had to bring home with me!
I own two "rotary" style cutting mats and hate them both. One has a metal base that is glued on and not only falls off, but has a major dip in the middle, so makes cutting a challenge. The other is a smaller one that falls apart every time I use it. I won't mention any names of who they're made by...but lets just say they both leave a lot to be desired. K?
But look what I found at the Come Quilt With Me booth!
This rotating cutting mat is solid and made with ball bearings and spins like a charm!...There's no dip in the middle or falling apart when you spin it as with the other "not to be named" products I own.
Working on a Row by Row Experience project last night for a local shop I just had to test out my new tool! I am 100% twitterpated! I snapped a few pics, and if you need to see it in action, Pat at Come Quilt With Me has a short little video on her website.
I know this tool is going to get a lot of use in my studio!
