I had the joy of spending time in my sewing room watching the Saturday morning sewing shows on KBTC this past week and saw a great tip on Fonds and Porter - Love of Quilting. Don't you just love starting you Saturday that way?
The tip that stood out to me was one concerning safety while using a rotary cutter. When rotary cutting, be safe and use a new sharp blade and wear a "Klutz Glove" to help protect your non-cutting hand from accidental injury. A fellow sewing enthusiast wrote in to the show to offer the following suggestion for remembering to be safe when cutting with a rotary cutter:
- After using your rotary cutter, store it inside your "Klutz Glove" when you are done using it. This way, you will have a reminder to use the glove the next time you do some rotary cutting.
I don't know about you, but there have been times that I have had a "near miss" with my rotary cutter and felt so glad that there are simple tools like this to help keep clutzy me safe!
