    :oops: Dummy me I was using the cutter too fast. The cutter blade rode on top of the ruler anf right into the tip of my index finger. Wow, does it burn. I have the bandaid on really tight right now. I pray that it will be okay in the morning. I do not enjoy being a member of the blade club.

    So sorry to hear about this accident. I was cutting fabric tonight and my husband came in and said ,"Why aren't you wearing your glove?" So this reminds me that I am a bit of a klutz at times and to wear the glove. I pray that you will heal quickly.

    Ouch, knock on wood I have not done this yet. I have, however, lowered the sewing machine needle onto my index finger and bled like a stuck pig.

    Hope you heal fast!

    Owie!! So sorry you got hurt Charlene. Although many of us have had a similar experience (or worse), it is not necessary to test the sharpness of the rotary cutter to be a quilter -- LOL.

    When I first started quilting in the rotary era, I got a nick in the blade and ran my finger along the edge to see if I could feel anything (the same way I used to test the sharpness of knives) -- not my brightest moment. I do feel your pain.

    If you have any soak it in some epsom salt water. It will really ease the pain and help it heal faster.

    right now I am afraid to remove the bandaid for fear of it bleeding. I will check it again in the morning. As for the epson salt. ouch, I really do not want to pour salt in a wound. I may just put some superglue on it in the morning. This should hold it together. Oh and what kind of glove are you talking about wearing for cutting?

    Ouch! I did the same thing and had to have 7 stitches. It was very inconvenient so I'm extra careful now.

    I know the pain well! The rotary cutter took a chunk of fat off my index finger this summer. I remember now to use the handle on my rulers :oops:

    Sounds like it hurts. I haven't so far done this one but I have sewed over my index finger with the machine. Smarts and bleeds but I made it thru. Hope your finger gets healed quick. Just make sure to put something on it besides the band-aid so it doesn't get infected. Good Luck and a hug. Sue
