Thea:

It is not a problem Carylanne - mine is old and hasn't been used in years - I will put it in the pile to give away to someone else...lol  If it doesn't work out with Richard - just let me know - it cleaned up beautifully and I have a new blade in it - it is just in that pile of stuff I have bought over the years and do not use... a Pay it Forward item.

I am new at this and my first post didn't show up correctly. It was directed at Thea. Do you still have this? Thanks! Kathy Smith

Thea is away right now due to some family issues.  I don't know for sure when she will be back but just watch for her posts and try to "catch" her then.   Welcome to the site and hope you enjoy your time with us.  We love chatting and actually manage to get some quilting done occasionally...LOL>

Oh, I have had the fiskars cutter for years and I love it. I use it for everything...fabric and paper. I just keep blades for paper only, and blades for fabric only. I don't like the fiskars blades as much as I like my Olfa rotary cutter blades, but the fiskars cutter is fantastic. I wish they hadn't discontinued it. I wanted to get one for my mom, but I'm not paying upwards of $100 for one now.

Carylanne,

I've been looking for one of the Fiskars 24" cutters for the same reason as you. The prices of the "others" are just too, too high!!

I was unable to sew for nearly 4 months when I had such a flare-up that I was unable to even thread my machine, much less cut fabric.

Even using a rotary cutter was awful. I ended up having surgery and it has helped but I am still looking for one (I still end up adding to my

scraps because of inaccurate cuts. I hope you find one.

I would like to make a PLEA to any "COMPANY" that happens to manufacture fabric cutters that there is indeed a great need for us folks

who have such a need for an inexpensive aid; especially considering the cost of fabric these days. Poor cuts can surely waste not only time,

but money.

Good morning Sandy, I know exactly how you feel. I have a suggestion, put an 'need to have' ad in the market place discussions, as You see here I was able to get one of the cutters from Richard (quilt daddy) . It is the greatest thing. I found one of the 13 " cutters the Donna Dewberry from Fiskars, however it is $60. If I was going to spend that money I would surely buy the full set of rulers and cutting aids from http://www.guidelines4quilting.com/GuidelinesAdvantage.html however that still requires the use of a rotary cutter. BUT it is for accuracy. Have you checked out that site. I may still buy the set as it has so many features for many fast cuts. Hope you find a cutting system that works for you.

My rulers were always slipping and it gets very tiresome to press down hard to keep them from slipping, so I used bumper dots for cabinet doors/drawers to keep them from sliding. They're small, clear, self-adhesive, and cheap--far cheaper than replacing all my rulers with non-slip ones. I already had them on hand because I use them on my kitchen cabinets, but they're less than four bucks per sheet at Rockler Woodworking. Works perfectly. :) You might try your local hardware store for something similar.

Hi Quilt Daddy,

I am new to the forum and wondered if you still have your Fiskars 24 inch strip cutter and still want to part with it.  I have been looking for quite some time for it and would be greatful

Thank you for the welcome message.  I am currently looking for a 24 inch rotary cutting ruler, it was discontinued by fiskars.  I could really use this tool and would appreciate it if anyone has one they are not using and are willing to part with it.

Thank you for the welcome, Gini. However, I am still looking for a die cutter. How can I post a ISO used 55100 accuquilt ??

Ol' "Arthur" kicks up more and more and if affects my accuracy when  cutting quilt strips, blocks, etc....

Your input is much appreciated.
