I just bought a Olfa deluxe 60mm rotary cutter with 10 blades for $28!

I looked at JoAnn's and normal price for that would be almost $130. JoAnn's has it at 40% off right now and it would still be over $77!

I also have found some great deals on ebay. I just purchased 30 45mm Olfa blades for $42.00. I am awaiting their arrival. I have trouble navagating the site though. I know I marked some favorite sellers, but cannot seem to be able to get back to them.

I have spent lots of money on e-bay also. Great place to find deals. You just have to do some digging. If you go to your My E-Bay page (the one that lets you know which auctions you have won or are waching, look to left side of the page and you will find Favorite Sellers. Click on that and it will take you to the sellers you have saved.

Hope this helps.

I've been on ebay before but never really looked at quilting stuff. I can't believe all the fabric that is on there. I am currently high bidder on a fat quarter pack. If I get it, it will be $1.50 a fat quarter. Not a bad price. I'll have to watch myself. I could spend a fortune :-o

I buy on ebay, Canadian though to save on customs. Had good luck with the fabric. I purchased many "40 - 4"squares" with the price starting at 1 cent, and by the end of the bidding it is up to $2.00 +, which I think is a good deal. The fabric is already, washed, cut, steamed ironed. I used some as "backing" for my jean rag quilts.

Yes, you can spend a fortune, especially in the bidding race. Watch yourself :)

That is a super buy for the big blades. You really got a value deal!


I don't use the 60mm blades but I ordered these two special sales:

Special $14.90 per 10 pack blades for 45mm and
28mm Special $1.09 per blade
I use the small blades for paper piecing.
