Stupid masks! Another reason to ditch them.

Hope you don't need surgery! Heal soon....

Terriamn, I cut fabric on my dining room table, covered with cutting mats. I commandeered the dining room many years ago, and added it to my quilting conquests.

Do you have a kitchen or dining table you can use?

Terriamn, hubby picked up a Husky height adjustable workbench for me. It has two drawers and is very easily raised and lowered. Also has casters for moving and can lock in place. I love it. The top is 52 X 24 and is great for cutting on my largest mat. I’ve got a small room to sew in and this is perfect for me. Here’s a pic.

Lifetime tables fold in half for easy storage and are adjustable to three heights. We actually carry two in the RV. They do come in different sizes - just look for ones that have adjustable heights

LogCabin sorry about your fall, hope you won’t need surgery.

Thanks for your pictures and ideas. TG I am using that same table right now for my sewing table. Sewbiz we have a great kitchen peninsula that could be used to cut on but hubby would really prefer for me to contain my sewing to one room. I hope to eventually get a sewing table like Pet’s and Janice your table would work well with it

When I do a block w/ triangles I draw the block out to size, then draw the triangles on a piece of freezer paper, add my 1/4 inch seam allowance and use it as a template for cutting the triangles, just press it to the fabric and cut. (even better if you are wanting a fussy cut for centering your image)

I woke up this morning and found this! Dropped my X-rays off to the orthopedic doctor to look at…
