    I have just printed the picture out and will email it to my daughter in Brisbane and ask her if she will check Bunnings near her to see they have the blades. If so you will be told for all our Australian friends. Wish us luck.

    My best friends hubby has a carpet business, I'm going to call tomorrow and see if he has any idea where else we can look.
    Until tomorrow!!!

    A couple of other places on the web for rotary blades: www.sewingpalace.com they have 45mm blades, 5 for $12.95 with free shipping.
    www.southstarsupply.com 10 pk of 45mm for $17.95

    I did order some from Harbor Freight yesterday after going to Joann's & getting a 2pk for $6. (that was with my 40% off!)

    Here is another place to buy inexpensive blades. http://www.threadart.com/shop/category.asp?catid=146

    I've been very happy with them.

    Smitty, I use the green mat. It is honestly awesome, and I use a "scrubby" that you use in the shower to keep it smooth. I have had mine over a year now and have cut lots of material on it. Hope that helps in your next purchase of a mat.

    I got the little one also. I found it where the handles for the bathtubs were.

    Ladies, do you realize what we might be doing to the price of carpet installation? Once they realize that quilters who are used to paying much more for the blades are snapping them up, they will raise the prices to fabric store levels, carpet installers will find the price up and they in turn will double the price of installation to pass on the increase to us. So I say be forewarned and order that new carpet now before the installation cost goes sky high! :lol:

    I bought the last 3 packages from my local store. The clerk who helped me said his daughter was a quilter too.

    Has anyone wondered if other hardware stores carry these carpet cutter blades?

    Seems to me that they might be available at other locations.

    I am going to do a search online to see if Home Depot, Lowes, or any of those places carry them.

    Yes, I placed my order yesterday, and apparently, it went thru. They never said one word about any backorder. I guess I will just wait and see if I get them.

    Some have been put on backorder until October. There may be different responses.

    It is like a round ball, sort of soft mess material with a cord for hanging. Found in either cosmetics or where they have bath soaps
