Well it’s the first day of our 12 day countdown to Christmas…I am always so excited to be able to introduce or showcase why these products are MUST haves for our quilting obsessions. Please remember to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win this item!
I have to admit I have my favorite quilting items…and one of them are Olfa mats and rotary cutters, which we happen to use exclusively in our wholesale kitting department at Primitive Gatherings…There are so many inferior cutters out there and I get to see/use the when I’m teaching. I love my 60mm Olfa cutter but today I am introducing what I believe is genius!!! A folding mat! Here are some photos. This is the answer for bringing your mat to class or retreats…
When we go to classes that require a mat its always awkward…their big and clunky…They do not like extreme heat or cold and nasty things like permanent warping and breakage happen when they are left in our cars. We don’t mean to neglect them but life happens and something the results are bad. Trust me I know…I’ve had it happen to my nice mats…but…Now Olfa has come up with a folding mat in two sizes…11″x17″ and 17″x24″. They are only half that size when transporting them. They slip nicely into my sewing machine totes side panel or the small one even fits into my plastic project tote. Like I said Genius!!!
When unfolded you do not see the curved seam at all!!! Now these mats are not cheap..they come with a nice price attached to them, they are worth it but we all cannot afford a $70 mat especially if you are just going to save it for classes/retreats…but we are going to ease this a little by offering the small one for $39.99 reg. $49.99 and the large one for $55.99 reg. 69.99 Save even more if you buy both at 89.99!!!

I hope you find these mats something you could see as being very useful, and to help you keep that large mat at home and safe from permanent damage…
