I learned something here, didn't know about flipping the blade, will have to try that one for sure. That sharpener will be a real bargin if it works. We cary a line of Olfa cutters in our stores - sorry ladies, they are paint stores - but I can't find rotary blades in any of our product catalogs. :-(

Gini - I have seen the bias makers but didn't care for the price. What do you use 1/8" binding for?

Since I'm worn out for the day, perhaps I should go look through the Keepsake Quiltng catalog again. OK, talked myself into it. LOL!

The smaller bias bindings work great for stems in applique.

pat, for the amount of time they save making stems and no burnt fingers , they are worth their weight in gold.  mostly i use them for stems, but the bigger ones i have used for making bindings on smaller things.    they are so sool.  you cut your strip, put it in one end and iron it as it comes out the other end, perfectly folded.   then i loosely roll them on empty toilet paper tubes.  i always have several colors of green waiting. i'm always needing  a length of stem.  gini

You kids just kill me - here I thought I would see something about the sharpener I was asking about and the talk is all about bias strip makers... please make sure you TAG your talks so that when someone is looking for comments about these notions that they find them...teehee...

Thea, I can't wait to hear your review on the sharpener. I have one of the round ones but never used it.

I think maybe we are thinking about 2 different bias binding makers.  The ones Gini and I use are just little gadgets that you hold in your hand....I think I may have paid $3 for the one I have.  Maybe not even that much.

The ones I picked up today have a slot to run your steam a seam down and iron it to your bias strip at the same time as you are making it.  Fantastic,....they are made by Clover.  Anything that saves a step I am all for.

Okay - I think we need some groud rules on posts - if you want to talk bias binding - start a thread with that name - i keep coming in here to read about the cutter and find nothing on here dealing with it... we really need to learn to follow the thread name - it is hard enough to find things as they get buried in posts.

I think your sharpener is too new.  I did see a pic of it on Keepsake.  And its your fault we got off topic this time.  You were the one that brought up the garage sale which got Angel on to Bias bars and then one thing lead to another and there we went.....LOL>
