    Great News From Fiskar!!

    I inquired about the 24X6 ruler with the attached rotary cutter..I use this exclusively for all my cutting..I would love to have a back up and one for my daughter..It was taken out of production a few years ago..I wrote to Fiskar about this and received the following reply!!

    Hello Pat:

    Thanks for your inquiry. We are coming out with an updated version later this year. The original has been obsolete for a number of years, but after a quilters' revolt, we are re-issuing it.

    Sincerely,

    I have one of the originals. I remember when it first came out about 16 years ago and everyone about fainted from sticker shock. $50 for a ruler? Let's see that's comes to about $3 year so far and it's still working fine. I replace the rotary blade every now and then. I don't use it as much as I use to but it comes in handy at times.
    Got fabric?

    We used to use one of the original ones in our quilt shop...sold many because of people seeing how it worked. Ome people really liked it, others didn't for various reasons. Will be interested in seeing the updated newer version they are coming out with. Will depend on how much it is if I will want to get one again.

    I can't wait to see what Fiskars brings out. I loved their paper cutter when I was into scrapbooking many years ago.

    I use mine often...love it for cutting long strips or multiple layers. I really like it for trimming up before putting on the binding. I really had to hunt to find one a few years ago.

    I don't know what could be improved about it. I'll have to get the new one to compare.

    True cut makes a similar gizmo in several ruler sizes and you can use the cutter separately. It fits into a gully on the ruler for straight cutting. Haven't tried it but it looks intriguing. Not cheap either. I guess you get what you pay for. I think Donna Dewberry has something similar but much smaller than the preferred 24. I like the June Taylor shape cut. Keeps me out of trouble.

    Fiskars is a great Company with great Customer Service. I had a Rotary cutter for about 5 years and the blade would not stay out. I emailed them and they asked for a picture which I sent and they are sending me a new one.

    I have an OLD grey and orange Fiskers cutting board. Made in the USA!
    Wish they still made that one.!!

    I purchased one about 10-11 years ago. I was disappointed as it was not totally accurate. It seemed there was a little too much side-to-side play with the blade and after 3-4 cuts I had to sliver trim the edges again. I also noticed if you cut with the blade say to your left to sliver trim raw edge and then flipped ruler around so that the blade was to the right and placed a line on the ruler at the 2" mark it did not line up across the fold .. so I wonder if it was the ruler that was off or the blade? A couple of my quilting friends experienced the same problem... maybe we got a bad batch?

    I hope the new ones are more reliable.
