    I make a lot of chenille scarves, and am sure this will make the cutting go faster.

    I was having a hard time locating one of these to finish a chenille project I had going.

    This is very comfortable to handle and works well cutting several layers. The different size attachments are great.

    Overall, I have found this very easy to use and comfortable for my hand. Gripping things can be a bit uncomfortable because of some arthritis in my hands and this one is easy enough to use that I don't experience immediate discomfort.

    What I did learn is that the blade seems to dull faster than if you are just rotary cutting fabric

    Posted by Haven't used it yet. But am very eager to do so. on 12th Apr 2019

    Bought this several months ago for a bucket-list project in my sewing room. I finally got around to using it this week. Now I wonder why I waited so long to try it! A couple of tips: Some of the patterns online suggest using 2 layers of fabric for the front and 2-3 for the chenille. I used 5 layers of flannel. If I make a chenille blanket again, I think 4 layers would be sufficient.

    The blade cuts very well, even with a light application of basting spray to hold the fabric layers together. I read some sewing tips that mention using a lot of basting spray makes it very hard to cut through the fabric.

    What I did learn is that the blade seems to dull faster than if you are just rotary cutting fabric. I thought at first it was too much basting spray but when I rotated the blade I was sliding through the fabric very quickly. The blade has numbers and lines (for the 1/2 marks). If it seems the blade is sticking, check the cutter for fuzz packed beneath the blade. I used tweezers to pull this out. When the blade becomes dull, it also "hangs" along a channel. Just loosen the screw, rotate the blade slightly, tighten the screw and you're ready to cut. The blanket I made started out with 42" squares of flannel. It took longer to sew the channels than it did to cut them. This tool is wonderful!
