    Some of these coupons may not be at all stores. Our store advertises "a Huge Sale for 8/27 - 8/28" and nothing about coupons. By the way, I cleaned out their supply of blades. I picked up 10 packs and left nada on the shelf. I don't even feel guilty. That's bad!!

    For the record, everything I saw in that store is "Made in China" including these blades. I broke my own rules as I made an effort to look for USA made products.

    Girl in store said they will have to limit how many a person can buy at a time. They are dangerous. I looked at her and "I am 61 years old I know how to use a blade and one will cut someone just as well at 20."

    Always trying to take our bonuses away lol.

    When I describe my rotary cutter to anyone (non-quilter) I tell them that it's a rolling scalpel. : = )
    Or a razor sharp pizza cutter.

    What will the Harbor Freight blades do to our cutting mats if they are sharper? Will we have to replace them sooner?

    My husband just got home with mine. He got me 10 and the cutter and it came to $15. He said there was a lady in front of him getting a bunch. She told him I must read the same blog she does. LOL

    Thanks for the word! I bought a bunch today and there was even a coupon in the Sunday insert this week for 20% off one item and another for a free flashlight! I made off like a bandit!

    They look just like the ones that we have been purchasing. I'm thinking that we might not have to apply as much pressure then the mats will last. Or not, and then the LQS will stay in business! :)

    HF must wonder what is going on with all the buyup of the blades. I went to our store here in Billings and they first said they were out and wouldn't have any in for 2 weeks. She gave me a raincheck and looked up info. for sure and then said the warehouse was out so it would be like 3 weeks. They can't deny that business on blades have really picked up lately. :)

    Lucky you all!!! I can't get to our local stores (3 in the area) until this weekend. I'm so afraid they will already be out by the time I get there. Here's hoping!!!

    We were in Wichita, KS today and I checked the Harbor Freight store for the rotary cutter blades. I bought 5 packages and left the rest for other quilters. :D Who knew a tool store could be so great!

    You can call them and they might save them for you.
    I called last night and they only had two sets. I said I could not get there till 2:00 the next day. They said they would hold them for me.
    I went today and it took awhile before they found them but finally they did.
    They also said they have a new delivery that will be in stock tomorrow, so I may have the chance to buy more tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
    I will let you know.

    This is the same price that JHittle charges, but you order them in a package of 20 for about $15. You will pay postage but if you have an order for $100 you get free shipping!

    I usually order 40 or 50 blades at a time and offer them to friends. He has a lot of good deals on sewing supplies.

    I did ask at Harbor Freight if this was an item they kept in stock and the answer was "yes" so when you are looking at the web site and find your local store , job down the phone number. I called to see if thy had them in stock, and they did. Let your fingers do the walking!

    someone mentioned the store ads not having the coupon and that is true. These are special ads that appear in some smaller publications like the weekly coupons. I have not seen them in the store nor had them offered to me there.

    Perhaps someone will find another source. The sales lady said she thought they had them at Michael's. I never went there to look.

    I bought 6 pkgs today in Shreveport! I love changing blades without cringing about the cost!!!!! Do the quilting companies realize we would use many, many more blades if they were priced fairly?

    Thank you all for the info on this topic. I am vacationing in Portland, Oregon and read of the rotary blades yesterday. Lo and behold, we passed a Harbor Freight store today and I was able to get 19 packages. If I waited until I got home to California, it probably would have been too late. I also found some great little plastic clips that I think might be good for holding my quilt sandwiches together. I can't wait to try out my new loot!

    Cannot find these in the UK, HF web-site does not list UK for postage. Anyone know different? or of anywhere else they can be bought so cheaply? Replacement blades in UK 3.95 for one!
