We sell a wide variety of quilting products that are designed to make the craft of quilting so much simpler. No matter your skill level, we have exactly what you’ve been searching for. We offer a wide selection of high quality cutting mats that are guaranteed to meet your specifications. If you are going to be cutting patches for your very own quilt, it is essential that you have a cutting mat on hand.
What Size Cutting Mat Do You Need?
As a leader in the industry, we understand that quilters are looking for variety in the products that they purchase. For this reason, we are sure to offer a little something for just about every quilter. Our cutting mats come in wide ranging size options, which allows you to customize your quilting experience. The most common cutting mat size is the A3 size. This is the perfect mat size for quilting beginners and even quilting experts, but we also offer both larger and smaller size options as well.
What is a Self-Healing Mat and Why is it Special?
One of the biggest trends in quilting is the self-healing mat. This has quickly become one of our best selling quilting products, because it is so innovative and unique in design. When you are using a rotary cutter with a sharp blade, it is important that the fabric does not shift. A self-healing mat has a rougher texture that keeps the fabric in place, which is ideal.
A self-healing mat not only keeps your fabric from shifting, but is also specifically designed to keep your blade from dulling quickly and remain intact. The mat “heals” itself after you use the rotary cutter and this extends the longevity of the mat. You get so much more use out of this type of quilting mat and it is more than worth the initial cost investment. This is a must-have item for any serious quilter. You will easily be able to cut different shapes and sizes with the help of a self-healing mat.
Care for Your Quilting Mat
It is important that you put the effort into keeping your quilting mat clean. You want a clean surface to place your fabric on when using your rotary cutter. It is always important to never use heat when cleaning your quilting mat.
