Sure....you all thought I was making excuses about my studio 'work related' injury didn't you? Haste and carelessness certainly were evident, but a new rotary blade and a new cutting mat allowed the Olfa cutter to fly.
With that said...I was LONG overdue for a new mat....and held off due to the high cost of one as large as required for my table.
I have no relationship with this company.....but can tell you their mats are half the price as what is charged in quilt related business and exactly the same quality. I ordered online, got it in 2 days and LOVE it.....all the markings are in inches.....yeah...no more metric to work around.
They carry many different sizes.....check it out here if you are in need. Consider this a service announcement! And....in case you are wondering....my finger is much better....tx's everyone for your concern.
