    The bad news is actually good in a sort-of-sad way... while "unsewing" several times tonight (working on my guild's BOM with many small pieces) I've discovered I really like the Clover "unsewer" the best of all... I tried several tonight... Next time I'm in my LQS, I'm picking up another one... sigh...

    The really good news is that on Saturday, DH (who is a sweetie) asked if there was anything I'd like to look at in OKC (90 miles away)... "well, yes... there's this cutting table at JoAnn's..."

    Long story short... I LOVE my new cutting table... no more bending over the dining table. I can use it for sandwiching my quilts too!! Very excited here about my new toy! :-D

    One more note....While showing DS and DDIL my new toy, he picks up my rotary cutter and asks, "What's this?" "A very sharp cutter." "Where can I get one!?!" He's in the screen printing business and thinks it will be great for something... who knew???

    Congrats on your new cutting table. I have one and it is so much better than leaning over the dining room table!!!!!

    Sounds like your Dh is a sweetie for taking you there. These rotary cutters are the greatest!! I used mine to cut vinyl floor squares that I lined a cabinet with. Got straight perfect cuts. Just changed blades when I was done.

    Glad your happy with your new cutting table. :thumbup: My Hubby built me a tall one because the dining room table was just too short. First time my Hubby saw my rotary cutter he got all excited because he thought I found a really sharp pizza cutter! :shock:

    I love the Fons and Porter seam rippers. But the point and the shaft are tiny-------great for getting into stitches---------------but that results in a often broken ripper.

    I've got a cheapy from Wal-mart, but I'm not fond of it at all. I'll try the Clover "unsewer" next time. Thanks.

    I have a high cutting table also, and it is extremely useful when wrapping Christmas or Birthday gifts.
