THE PRIZE

One crafty reader will win the following products from Olfa:

REVIEW

When I think of quilting, I think of lots of cutting, which makes me think of Olfa’s trademark yellow and green rotary cutting products. Olfa is pretty much the top of the line when it comes to rotary cutting because their products each have some unique and helpful features, like the rotating self healing rotary mat included in today’s giveaway package.

If you sew, and especially if you quilt, you need the rotating cutting mat because you only have to position and align your fabric once to make multiple cuts and to get those intricate shapes you need for your quilt design.

The frosted acrylic ruler makes reading the numbers and grid lines, on both light and dark fabrics, so much easier. And it’s covered in markings. The “Pivot Point” angle markings are great for cutting half square triangles, borders, patchwork, strips, bindings, and lots more.

Lastly, the quick change rotary cutter is a heavy duty tool that can be easily adjusted for either right or left hand use. It’s comfortable to hold, sharp, durable, and cuts either straight or curved lines. And when it comes time to change the blade, the process is quick and easy with just a single step.

Olfa rotary cutting products are each designed to save you time and frustration in your sewing and quilting projects. Quilting can require a ridiculous amount of thinking and precision with all the angles and degrees, but Olfa products are designed to make that aspect of your project as easy as possible. I’m thinking I might be able to attempt a more complicated quilt design with these great tools!

I really do need to win this. I haven’t been doing these easy sewing projects I need to complete because I don’t want to have to go buy a rotary cutter and mat. Lame, I know.

2 Amber L. March 20, 2009 at 7:52 am

I’ve really been wanting to start making quilts and haven’t gotten a rotary cutter or quilting cutting mat yet.

I think the circle cutters are really neat

3 Rachel March 20, 2009 at 7:54 am

I’m not exactly sure what you mean by collection, but I like the rotary essentials kit. I’ve really been wanting a rotary cutter and mat, so thanks for the chance to win. :)

4 Elena March 20, 2009 at 7:55 am

I like Olfa’s art knife collection.
Thanks!

5 Tracy March 20, 2009 at 8:05 am

Another Olfa product I’d love to own is the Rotary Circle Cutter (CMP-3), it cuts multiple layers at once from size 1-7/8″ to 8-1/2″, and it comes with a lifetime guarantee. I’d also love to win your giveaway so I could finish some sewing projects, including a quilt I’ve been working on and off on for three years! LOL

24 Harley March 20, 2009 at 10:43 am

My favorite thing is the 35″ x 70″ Self-Healing Rotary Mat, because it’s so large you don’t have to worry about moving your fabric to recut!

Definately favor the rotary cutter. I made a rag quilt with my mom last summer and the cutting we had to do was definatley made easier by using my mom’s rotary cutter. I would really like to own my very own. Thanks for the opportunity

48 Trish March 20, 2009 at 8:12 pm

Thanks for having this giveaway. I asked for a rotary cutter and board for my birthday last month, but didn’t get them. I got a new sewing machine for Christmas and I know I would do so much more sewing if I had a rotary cutter and board – so I hope I win!

54 cathy March 20, 2009 at 11:56 pm

Hi, this is coolmom, and I don’t usually say much, but I loved the very large cutting mats. I bought one at “another place” and it smelled so bad for so long and when it finally stopped stinking, it split in half where it folded. And I paid a lot of money for that thing. No coupons or discounts or anything. So I am due a new one! End of story.

55 lisa J March 21, 2009 at 5:53 am
