    Hi Debora,
    I'm sorry if it came across that I was being critical of your new patent, I didn't mean it that way. If it runs a little slower than mine, I am sure it will be fine.
    Now how about coming up with a sharpener that will really sharpen rotary blades.
    You have my admiration for being so clever.

    To answer the question about where I got my Birdie.
    I really just don't remember. It was one of my suppliers that I was using at the time.
    Try to google it, in the meantime I will see if I can find anything on where I got it.
    Take a look at Atlanta Threads, they might just have it.

    I hope you give us the opportunity to buy this directly from you when it becomes available!! Please keep us updated as to when it is ready for sale. I'll definitely buy one!!
    I second that. I'll buy two!

    Any idea what type of stores we should watch? Quilt stores of course, but perhaps JoAnns or other mail-order stores too?

    If you need someone to test drive it for recommendations for advertising........I'd be willing to try one out for you.

    tooMuchFabric was readiIng my mind, or I was reading hers. I hereby volunteer to be a betatester also. Having fibromyalgia and serious problems with my neck and right arm and shoulder, I would be a perfect candidate in seeing how it would be for the physically challenged to use it.

    That would be so neat, but I most likely not have any money then either, and darnet that would be really neat, and make cutting less painful for my back. I can't wait to see it. Congratulations, and God bless.

    I've used the industrial rotary cutters but have never seen an electric domestic cutter... I guess this is why.. You were working on it... good luck with the patent

    Hi Deborah--
    Please keep us informed when and how we can get the electric rotary cutter. I have a friend with bad arthritis and is very excited about this.

    I would absolutely LOVE one ... I only have index fingers & thumbs that work right now on both hands. Not having another surgery UNTIL I just have to as some of you know I have had 11 in 10 years. Still paying for the last 2.
    Anyhow, just wanted to let you all know that there is a rotary cutter demonstration on You Tube. I ran across it while watching the Acc Go! Really nifty how electric rotary cutters work...the one I saw also has an automatic blade sharpener when it is running.

    Just wanted to give you an update on my electric fabric cutter. Things are moving along and working out a few bugs of the design. Still not sure when it will be coming out for sale.
