Janey Walker replied to Tempest Devyne's discussion So you want to sew something each week for 52 weeks? Some tips.
"Thanks Tempest! I know that we don't now what is happening yet (and I too join the prayers for Mena and her family), but I think I am going to be crazy and try to do this challenge this year! I am pretty sure I will not get one a week done, I…"

"Thank you! I am going to get a cutting mat and rotary cutters. We don't have coupons in Australia, but I found a warehouse not too far from home that has them at a good price, with good reviews, so once new year is over and I have money again I…"

"I use nuts as my pattern weights... Metal nuts, as in nuts + bolts (not for eating!), which you can get from the hardware store. Big washers from the same section of the hardware store are also really great, and easy to store because you can hang…"

"Yes!  I love my rotary tools and cutting mats.  And yes, get a coupon and treat yourself to the largest that you possibly can.  It took me years to fall in love with rotary cutting because I had to learn to cut without the fabric…"

"I second what Kat said! It really makes everything so much faster, and reduces wrist strain from too much scissor-ing.  I have two sizes of rotary cutter: The larger one is 45mm across and the smaller is 28mm.  The smaller is better for…"

Rotary cutters and sewing

I was wondering if anyone uses a rotary cutter and a cutting mat to cut out their patterns. I came accross it in a blog this week and I am very interested in the idea. I bet it would save so much time- for me pinning and cutting the pattern takes for ever. Have you tried this? Is it good or no good? Any feed back would be wonderful.JaneySee More

"Janey, you are so sweet, its been a lot of fun.  So nice to see more people are interested in sewing - it's so rewarding.  People have been so giving of themselves too - which I have really enjoyed.   Happy Holidays x Trish"
