My apologies for updating the last blog post way after it had been published – I wanted to record the techniques learned for my own benefit and thought it was better kept together than posted in a separate entry altogether.
Anyway, it’s probably time for an update on another of Santa’s really useful gifts, the True-Cut Rotary Blade sharpener which I’ve finally put through its paces.
It works brilliantly!
I have several rotary cutters of different sizes and guess what, I can never remember which one needs the new blade, or once I get to the shop selling the replacement blades, which size to buy! Yes, I know, I could have written down the size on my shopping list but to be truthful, these are not things I find myself buying very often and actually, the place I usually remember I need a new blade is somewhere like the NEC or wherever. Not necessarily the place to take a shopping list! As a result, I’m often the one who is cutting fabric with a less than sharp blade, muttering about how I must get hold of a new one “next time I’m in town”.
Anyway, enough about my lack of focus – sweep the cutter through the guide twenty times and bingo, sharp blade. Simple as that. I love it!
Thank you, Father Christmas x
