    Why didn't someone think of this before? I bought eight 2 packs today. (40 blades) I'll split them with my sewing buddy.
    I used one today and it's great. In fact, when I compared it to the Olfa blade I had been using, it looks like it could have been made in the same place. Both came from China!

    'Just got your note. I've been quilting for longer than I want to say. Are yo a new quilter? Stone Mountain is quite a distance away from me, but we can correspond via email, cell, if you like. If I can help, I'll be happy to do so.
    Tell me a little about yourself. What type of quilts do you like to make? I'm currently in an applique mode.

    the website says that my order was shipped, however just got a card in the mail telling me that my blades are on back order. Called today and they told me they were on back order. I told them that the site online says they were shipped that is why I was calling

    My hubby tried to order them online yesterday. They told him
    they were out of stock and it would be a month or so before
    they had any more in stock. I wonder if they come from
    China??

    I went today to our local (Fredericksburg VA) store. They didn't have any - OK, I wanna know who around here scarfed them all up???? LOL

    I did get the carpet cutter tho - for those of you that don't know where to look and can't get help in the store - look in the section with the carpet cutting tools. I got the carpet cutter because it had 3 blades in it for $3.99. Hey, that's still better than Olfa. I'll keep checking back but because its a drive for me (45 - 60 mins) I will call first to see when they are in - I won't hold my breath! Ha ha.

    While there (in HF) I found a set of wireless headphones to use with the t.v. so I can listen and watch at night and not keep hubby awake. They were only $5.99! DEAL!

    I stopped in on Saturday and they were sold out and on back order. I did see the $2 cpn on Sunday's paper. There is also a FREE mini 3 1/2 to 4 inch flashlight cpn. My son loved it.

    My HF isn't too far from me and it has been a week and a half since I received my raincheck. That's when the young man said that they would be in. I'll stop by there and let you all know what he says.
    Til later,
    Ta ta :-D

I am just worried they will be expensive then.

    The guy at the store did tell DH, "All these old ladies are buying them all up!" LOL DH didn't enlighten him.
    This crack me up!! I was laughing so hard DH came and ask what so funny. I let he read it and he laugh and said how in the world did he keep a straight face.

Looks exactly like mine!]We do not have a HFT around here so someone on this board was generous enough to offer to buy some for me and mail it to me. That was so kind of her.

    I did not think there was any in Georgia however if you go on their web site you can find out if there is one near you. I put in my zip code and, We have one 30 miles from us. Woo Hoo

    I don't live to far away from a HF and am stopping by there today to check on my raincheck. They told me a week and a half and it is time to go in today. I will ask the clerk if there is any way a person can order these in quantity.
    Wish me luck I'm going in!!!!!
