    Looks like I may be the only one out there, but I don't like the fact that the mat is moving. I've had it slip too many times when I cut. I prefer to use a small mat that I can physically turn, but not is on a rotating system like the Brooklyn Revolver.

    I recently replaced my rotating 13" cutting mat which sat to the left of my machine with a new 12". The new one works much better since I literally wore the other one out BUT I miss that inch!
    The round one comes from Pat Yamin at Come Quilt with Me; the Brooklyn Revolver. Pat doesn't have a store but does alot of big shows and you can order directly from her web site.

    I have one & as ickhy as it works, you don't want to know what I call it! I was so amped to get it (it seems like such a great idea) but it rocks & is hard to cut on. I don't even know where it is now... I just went back to a smaller mat on top of a larger one... Just my thoughts...

    JoAnn's does do a military discount. Just check the back 2 pages of their flyer when it is a national holiday such as Memorial Day. They usually give an extra 10 or 20% off with military id.

    I got tired of struggling around the table when cutting some triangles and moved the small mat to a little, old stand. The mat stayed still and I could easily step around the stand.

    I have a rotating mat but it doesn't spin very smoothly. I prefer using a smaller mat on top of my larger mat and just turning the mat.
