I want to buy a rotary cutter and a self-healing mat. Suggestions? Best brands?

Thanks!

Olfa brand mats and rotary cutters are my favorite. I had a Friska cutter but prefer the Olfa.

Bought both in November when I began to learn how to Quilt - The smell of the Olfa you CAN get out (chemicals from the self-healing).

Well today my whitish Fiskers broke in 1/2!!!!! Very disappointed as I did like the lighter color to cut on, versus the dark green Olfa.

Limited Lifetime Warranty - for me on Fiskers that was just over 6 MONTHS!!

*sigh*

Get the biggest one you can afford also - that way you can move to cut to various sections and avoid the cutting in same spot I guess like me? Oh J's does NOT have them on Sale, so you can use a great coupon too :)

Good luck
