Tips & Tutorials

 

Rotary Cutter

 

Return to Menu Page

 

To re-sharpen your rotary cutters, fold up a piece of silver foil so that you have several layers and then just cut through it several times and your cutter will be re-sharpened.

 

Be sure your rotary blade is sharp! A dull blade slows you down, affects precision, and invites injury. Carry an extra blade with you to class in your sewing kit.

 

 

Scissors

 

Fiskars make a beautiful pair of scissors called Comfort-Grip Micro-Tip. These scissors are great when working with fusible web or when trying to snip in tight places.
