    And I'll check JoAnn's for the Connecting Threads brand.

    Thanks for all your comments!!
    You could put the mats together if you are onlyusing them to cut on, but there is uaually a border around them so your measurements using them is going to be off. I usually measure with my ruler but I also double check on my mat too. Also, if you use both together, make sure your lines all line up. Also, you can always ask Santa for a bigger mat! Just be specific! :lol:

    As for the Connecting Threads, it isn't a brand that Joann's carries. You have to order it off their website, which I think somone included a link to. Their spools are really reasonable and even if your machine doesn't have a spool spot, you can make one using a jar and a hanger! That's what I did and it works great!

    You are gonna love it here!

    Try checking out Hancocks of Paducha - I think they are the cheapest (or I should say least expensive) place for cutting mats. Also, JoAnn's has those 40% off coupons if you sign up for them.

    I always forget something - Becareful when putting mats together - if you cut at the spot where the two mats meet you could have big problems with an accurate cut. Also, if your mat is warped in the least it will give you a bad cut. We have made the mistake of placing things that should not be on the cutting mats - such as a laptop computer - who gave off some heat and it did warp my mat.

    Watch for Joann's 40% or 50% (better yet) to get that larger mat.

    Just be sure that the mat is not already on one of their weekly specials, otherwise the coupon will not be allowed.

    Happy cutting.
