Rotary cutters are made to cut fabric, paper, leather, vinyl, mat board, and foam core.
They are sometimes preferred over scissors when you need a straight, clean, precise cut, making them a favorite of quilters.
We offer Omnigrid rotary cutters in 2 sizes and also carry replacement blades. The smaller 28mm size is best for curves and provides the most precision.
You’ll also need a cutting mat to protect the surface you’re working on. We love using clear rulers with rotary cutters.
Press down firmly on the material and roll the cutter, maintaining pressure.
You can use a straight edge or quilting ruler to ensure that your cuts are straight. Use a cutting mat to protect your work surface.
