    I bought myself a Christmas present on Black Friday. Now I can't decide if I should keep it or take it back. I wonder if anyone out there has used one of these and can tell me if it is worth it or just a waste of money!!
    I don't think I introduced my self. I am from East Grand Forks Minnesota which is just a hop and a skip from the Canada border.
    When my kids were little I sewed quite a bit but the grandkids need the "brand name stuff" except for customs. I have gotten into quilting with my mother. She is 88 and has sewn all her life. She can't stand to cut any more so I do that and she does most of the sewing. I have sewn a couple and do enjoy it.
    Thanks in advance for any information you can share in regard to the rotary cutter

    I want a rotary cutter that feels good in my hand, and has a safety on it that is easy to use. There are many brands/styles available, but if it doesn't feel comfortable to you, it will be harder to use and may even hurt your wrist.

    I guess I didn't make myself clear. it is electric and cuts strips from 1/2 inch to 2&1/2 inches. I am really into the strip quilting. Makes pretty tops easy and they are easy for my mom to sew

    Sorry I misunderstood (was with all the kids and grandkids all day and I'm a little bit, well, you know.) Anyway, I think the strip cutter is still probably the best money you'll ever spend -- provided it cuts like it should, of course!! :D :D And we all deserve to buy ourselves a little something for Christmas just to make sure we get one thing that we want :twisted:

    Welcome to our board. You will love it here.
    I don't have the strip cutter but every time I go to Joanns I find myself looking at it. I think if its cuts wide enough strips it would work. I want to start doing some strip quilting. I will probably end up buying one.
