    New Rotary Blades - do not throw out your old ones- trade them in.

    Yes this is true, you might want to check out the following website, like I did...... and found out that I should be saving up my used dull blades and for a small price I received ten brand new Olfa blades.

    I sent them my old 10 blades and received in the mail a brand new package of Olfa blades for a small fee, and in the USA you get free shipping.

    http://www.lpsharp.com/

    I also found that by dabbing a bit of sewing machine oil on my blades they don't wear out so quickly.

    I am not affiliated with this company, a fellow quilter told me about it sometime ago, and thought it was time I shared with you all.

    Well, I actually save my old blades, and I like the idea of recycling them. I will have to figure out how to do this. Thanks... I did go read their website, and they seem to prefer that you know what kind of blades you are sending. Mine are all mixed together, even the Harbor Freight ones. That may be a problem. Got to read it more carefully....

    This is a great link. Thanks for posting this. I have a bunch of blades that I haven't felt good about throwing out. I would much rather recycle them.

    Thanks for the link! It would be great to be able to get some value from the dull blades, but I just went to the site... and for Olfa blades it about the same as when I buy from JoAnn's with a coupon or on sale.

    Thanks for sharing. I'd rather recycle my old blades instead of throwing them out.

    I put all my throw away blades in small metal tin and when I go to the Dr. for my yearly exam I take the tin and empty it in the used needle box at his office. Since I've been using my Go and using a blade sharpener to keep the rotary blade sharp, I only have two blades in the tin since from last April.
    Got fabric?

    I would put the old blades between some very sturdy cardboard layers and tape the sides. Great thread! I need to check this out too! I am sure the US mail will ask about the contents of the mailer.
