Have you put in a new blade in your rotary cutter this year? I started to notice a little dreading of cutting, but thankfully I remembered what happened last time. I put in a new blade before I could even start arguing with myself! ;)
I thought I'd have 4 blades left after I put in my new one, but I found a case with 2 fresh blades left. Whoo! So now I have 6 blades left. Should last me 2 years. :)
And in other news, I'm starting to run low on my variety of aurifil thread.
Really low! :P Nah, it's just this one spool that's almost gone. I've used it for piecing only. But since my old source for aurifil for under $5/spool is closing out, it's time to find a new line of threads.
I'm very strongly considering Essential Threads. I'm pretty sure it's been out on the market for over a year now. Or at least 6 months for sure. I've heard of other quilters buying it... but I haven't heard any reviews! So wanna help me? If you have this thread, please tell me what you think of it. I don't expect it to be as lintless as aurifil, but how does it hold up? Does it break a lot? Can a lot fit on the bobbin? Would you buy it again?
I'm pretty sure I'd buy all the sets, and the restock up on individual spools every 6 months or once a year. It shouldn't be more than $100 to start up and I'll have a nice variety, which really helps when you do all your quilting. :)
And I really hope they don't start to close out any time soon, cuz it's a great deal!
