Let There Be (more) Light!!!
I don't know about you, but every birthday that passes brings a need for me to have more or better lighting for everything I do.
I have had an especially difficult time using a rotary cutter and cutting mat at night. Even with the overhead lights on, I cast shadows and have to take extra care to see the markings on the mat and line up my fabric properly. Eye strain occurs after cutting for a long while.
I was intrigued when I saw this cutting mat at the International Quilt Show in Chicago. The cutting mat is placed on a light table with a variety of brightness settings. Since the light comes from below, I can cut all night long with accuracy and no eye strain.
I am sure it has other uses, but, I can't get passed the fun I'm having again with my rotary cutters!
This cutting system is a CutterPillar Glow. It arrived quickly after I placed my order, is high quality and was packaged very well. I have been using it for a few weeks now and can highly recommend it to any quilter or crafter.
