I am a bit slow mentally as I get older but in my defense until a few months ago I had to fight really thick heavy padded carpet with my sullivan (?? I think) cutting table. Now that it is on a hard floor (tile at my house) I have discovered that the wheels are on there for a purpose besides putting it away. I have had it twirling like a ballerina lol! while cutting out- something I didn't struggle with much on the thick carpet. A slight push now will move it to the area you need to get to and helps with back strain from reaching over a table to cut. I have mine in my formal living room cleverly disguised with an antique quilt as a throw in a little space left by the piano and a cabinet. I don't keep it up as every flat surface seems to fill up here and I don't have room in my present sewing room for it to live. These things are not really sturdy as in weight bearing but work very well for their purpose. The cutting mat stores between the back of the piano and the wall nice and flat. I always liked using it but didn't take full advantage of the wheels and its motion while using so thought I would pass this on to those of you who don't keep a lot of stuff under it and have enough room to swing it around or push or pull it as you cut while using as I really enjoyed using this feature. I just wish I had bought a more expensive one that had a drawer in the middle for my scissors and pins but for the small amount on sale I paid for this one I can't complain.

I love mine, too. I especially like being able to fold up and put out of the way when done. Cutting mat goes under a throw rug, so it doesn't curl--DH's very clever idea.

love the idea of putting under the rug! I have another that is seldom used and have been keeping it between a box springs and mattress but it still has some wavy spots. I think I will try putting it under the one rug I have left in the house.
