Sewing Notion of Note

One of the first things that you learn in quilting class is that precise cuts are imperative to your finished product. Fortunately, the sewing center has many tools to help you get all your cuts done accurately and easily so you can get to the sewing part!

One of the best investments you can make is in a good quality cutting matt. It doesn't need to be large---but if you have the room you should consider this 24x36 version from TrueCut.

The matt features measurements to the 1/8th of an inch, angle marks of 45, 60, 90 degrees for making cuts and when you need to find the bias just set your fabric on the lines and cut. This is a superb quality matt that should last you years.

Be sure to take care of your matt---avoid exposure to excess heat (don't leave it in a hot car) and don't roll or fold it---there's a handy hanging hole for wall hanging when not in use. Priced at $59.95---you won't be able to find this kind of quality elsewhere for this amazing price.
