Ah, that elusive Gift of Patience! I do love my rotary cutter and don't know if I would be spending so much time cutting fabric up into small pieces if I didn't have one. Hard to imagine there was ever a day when women were arguing over whether or not it was OK to use one. (Sad but true, they really did.)
You crack me up. Can't wait to see PK Love!
Oh Pam, I LOVE your video!!! I too have my original rotary cutter from 25 years ago. And YES it is THE tool that changed my life. I learned to quilt using the templates and scissors........ BUT with my Olfa Rotary it was love at first sight (or should I say cut), and we have been together ever since. And may I add, that I have only used the Olfa cutting mats, as I think they have added years YEARS to my blades. Thanks so much for the Perky Good Morning message :-)
Sadly ... I was there when the rotary cutter became a reality for quilters ... and truly ... it has changed a bunch of lives ... all in a good way!
Pam Kitty - you are a HOOT! My Olfa rotary cutter must be about 27 years old or so because I purchased it before my son was born, and guess what - I just used it again this morning to make some pillowcases out of vintage sheets. When my blades get dull, I switch them to another Olfa rotary cutter and use them to cut up paper for my other crafty ideas! I love you Olfa rotary cutter!
Next time, could you sing and dance? Maybe? Pretty please????? And btw, where do you get your purse handles??? HUGS!
I have one of these and I live by it....Favorite tool in my tool box....although I do love my Japanese craft books and bento boxes....smiles...Renee
I don't think I would be quilting either if I had to deal with templates and hand piecing and all that other stuff. The rotary cutters along with the rulers and cutting mats has opened the quilting world to everyone!!!
Yeap... you are a crazy girl! But you are right... the rotary cutter is the tool that took us from the Neanderthal period into modern quilters. And I don't believe that there is something called patience or extra time for that matter. So the rotary cutter took care of both of those things!
You're too funny. I LOVE my original Olfa cutter too -- it's vintage. (Right? I hear these young kids saying that about stuff I have and bought new all the time!)Now. Let's get to the important stuff. Can we Puh-Leezzzzeeee hear more about that happy book? That wee tiny peek looks awesome!!! Should I go and beg Nanette???
OMG you should be in commercials !!!!! PERFECT!!! I think my first rotary cutter is a couple of years older than yours .... and I still have and use it !!! I took my first couple of quilt classes in 1985 BEFORE rotary cutters ..... yes , back in the day of templates and scissors ..... and I was THRILLED when rotary cutters came on the scene (if they didn't I would have resorted to those cool electric scissors my mom had that I used to cut out my groovy bell bottoms and vests that I sewed in high school). So, who would have thought my first rotary cutter is now an ANTIQUE !!!! AAAAACCCCKKKKK !!!!!!
Oh yes, the Rotary Cutter did change all of our lives. Thanks for sharing the "love". I have way too many, and my Olfa ergonomic one is my favorite. "There's nothing like a new blade!"
You are awesome, Pam!
Too cute, do more videos!
Dude, I freakin' LOVE that pink book!!!! I want to set my FW quilt with pink sashing all because of that amazing cover!!! (But yes, I probably love my rotary cutter more than that book ... but my rotary cutter is ... PINK!!! LOL!
Pam Kitty Love. I see it as a limited edition OLFA cutter!!! Woot!
It's so good to "see" you! I love my Olfa rotary cutter very, very much. His name is Raul, because he is very thin and dangerous. ;) I'm off to FB to like their page. Have a lovely, productive weekend, Pam!
Love the video Pam, I have been missing seeing you from time to time. I love my cutter, it was the difference for me in quilting or staying as a mediocre garment sewer...or as the modern quilters say...sewist!
I love you!!!! What a great testemonial. You rock! You did make me think back....I may have been 19 years old when Mom gave me my first rotary cutter so that makes mine 30 years old. Can that be right? I can't be this old. Holy cow! My rotary cutter is twice as old as my kid. OMG! I need fried chicken now to calm me down. Off I go! Great video, Pam. ~KellyunDeniably Domestic
Your video is cute! Loved hearing your voice! :oD I love my rotary cutter, too! Mine is over 25 years old come to think of it! We've gone through a lot together over the years!
I loved meeting you, you are so cute!!!
Oh, you are so cute, Pam. I would have never guessed what your life changing thing was, but I totally agree. After watching this, if I didn't already have 4 rotary cutters, I would be rushing out to get one.
Yeah! A quilting video podcast. Great idea. i love watching knitting video podcast, sure hope this will continue.
Cute, cute video Pam! You brightened my morning. (and yes, I love my rotary cutter)
I couldn't see the video with my iphone. I tried last week and then forgot about it. Thanks for telling me. It is the cutest clip. I love it. I watched it twice. So funny. I love your personality. I'm so glad we are friends. So so so SEW glad.
