    Cutting mat at Tuesday Morning store

    The Sullivans 36" x 59" cutting mat on sale at Tuesday Morning store starting Sunday Feb 10th for $29.99. It will cover a folding table top. Good for cutting into different size mats too.
    Got fabric?

    I saw that in the flyer i got in the mail yesterday...from the picture and discription it doesn't look like its a self healing mat...might be hard plastic. I'm going to check it out the price is great. HOpe it is a self healing mat.
    Otherwise you might burn through blades quickly.
    It says its low density polyethelyne what ever that means...I'll have to look up and see what Olfa's mats are made of.

    I like a hard surface mat. The self healing mats, the blade cuts into the mat as you cut through the fabric. I rarely have a dull blade and I sharpen my blade before each cutting session. I will buy at least two of these mats to cover my my quilt work surfaces not so much to cut fabric but nice I know I can cut anywhere on the surface.

    Confirmed fabric-holic seeking 12 step treatment program or a storage building.

    I'm curious to hear about the Sullivans also but I did by a June Taylor 24 X 18 with a 6 X 24 ruler included for $ 20 for our church quilting group. I thought that was a good bargain.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    So what if the verdict on the mats? Are they worth it? I stopped by tonight and looked at them. Debating on buying one or not! So?

    I bought two. I'm not using them as primary cutting mats but to cover the works surfaces in my sewing room. Now I can cut, glue, spray, pin if needed on any flat surface I have, like having butcher block counter tops in the kitchen. One fits the folding table I use perfectly.

    The ones I bought do not look like the image on JoAnn's website. Different cutting lines.

    Do you still like this mat? I bought the table and would love a mat that matches it perfectly but I heard the lines might be off...Although if I only use the lines from my rulers that shouldn't be an issue...

    I do like the mat, it fits on my island nicely. I can cut anywhere I want. If I am cutting a lot I prefer the self healing mat. I wouldn't want to cut everything on this mat, but I am please with it for the price. I don't have to worry about cutting into the table top. I think of it more of a protector than a cutting mat perhaps. I wouldn't pay $75 for it though.
