    LOVE MINE - and my mom loves the one that I gave her too. I really think that it is one of the only things that I have given her in many years that she truly loves and uses. Enjoy it. You will wonder how you got along without one for so long.

    GREAT PRICE! Thats what I paid for a used 1. I wonder what the diffrence between them are? It looks just like mine.
    Except that "thingy" that Willfreg mentioned. On mime it's plastic. I have used it but is pretty useless to me. All in all, I love it.

    If I don't get the bottom of the fabric exactly straight on a line on the mat I get the V in the middle of my strips. It's hard to get it exactly straight all the way across. I have to use a second ruler to align the fabric. That is the only con I have for mine.
    Got fabric?

    Hi, if you don't get your fabric on the straight of grain you will wind up with the v in the fold area.

    The instructions say to line up the fold of the fabric on one of the mat lines. The fixed cutting guide can not line up the bottom like a regular ruler so the mat line has to be used. It really doesn't matter about the straight of grain with the fixed ruler. I had a private lesson with the Alto rep at Paducah how to use it as I was having so much trouble. She really helped. I was over thinking a lot of it making it difficult. I use it to cut on the bias, now that is fast and easy.
