    Great cutting set |
    San Francisco, CA United StatesVerified Purchase

    It is not only useful for my very beginner sewing, but it has lots of other uses since the self-healing mat and the see-through ruler/cutting guide are quite large and sturdy.

    Save yourself money by buying the package, the rotary tool alone is $15, the quilters' ruler is $10, right there you already paid the $25, so its like the mat was free! Love it!!

    I bought this product based on price and reviews and I find it brilliant. It is a great size and cuts through layers of fabric with ease. I like that the mat is 2-sided and is self-healing. I've only had it a few weeks but already I wonder how I managed without it!

    I was new to quilting, but this set made it much easier to get started! I am still using the cutting mat and ruler but upgraded to a better rotary cutter but that was after using for quite some time. for the price, this is a great set and I would recommend it highly!

    Love It |
    Verified Purchase

    I love it. I'm new to quilting so I'm not sure if I'm right on not giving this a 5 star rating. The reason I did is because my cutter already needs a new blade. Could be just a fluke. Otherwise it is a awesome set for the price!!!

    Love this, but I received a different color |
    Verified Purchase

    This item is perfect. I actually received a grey/light grew mat with various size squares, and was actually of a higher quality and design than pictured--a nice surprise! Overall, this mat is of superb quality. I can tell that I will have it for a very long time. The cutter itself is extremely sharp. I haven't had to change blades yet, but I suspect that the process will be very easy. You have to be careful to cut straight-on and not towards the plastic guide (which is included and pictured at the bottom of the picture). I cut a small notch into the plastic guide with not much effort while cutting (which speaks to the sharpness of the cutter!). Overall, this product is a must for anyone who sews quilts, curtains, linens, etc. and makes frequent cuts.

    Great product great price |

    I am learning to quilt and was advised to pick up a cutting board, rotary cutter and ruler. I looked around and found that each piece individually was quite expensive. When I saw this set I thought the price was too good to be true but thought I would order it and see for myself. The first set that came in I found the acrylic ruler cracked. The exchange process was super easy and very fast. When my second set came in I was extremely pleased. I would recommend this product to anyone.

    mat and cutter are different than pictured/advertised |
    Verified Purchase

    Not sure if it will make a huge difference, but I was looking for the yellow/green cutting mat with the blue/grey rotary cutter. I got a grey mat with squares- other side is grey. Maybe it's just me, but the white 'classic' cutter that came with it feels cheaper than the grey one that I was trying to get (again).... oh well... I can't send it back easily from my APO address...

    More useful than I expected it to be |
    Houston, TexasVerified Purchase

    I had never used a rotary cutter before but thought it might be easier than scissors for small pattern pieces and appliques. I knew that I would need a cutting mat to go with it and after looking over various combinations, I determined that the Fiskars Rotary Cutting set offered the best value. I didn't expect that I would use the ruler very much but, for the price, it seemed that it was a nice extra. To my surprise, I find that I use the ruler quite a bit and I like it so much that I've even ordered a curved one. I was also surprised to find that the rotary cutter was not as sharp as I expected it to be. On certain types of fabrics, I was required to press really hard and even backtrack a bit to get pieces cut. However, I am using it to do more than cut small pieces and probably will get a larger mat at some point so that I don't have to keep moving it to keep it under the fabric. It is definitely easier for me to use a rotary cutter than scissors on most types of fabrics and I do get a cleaner and more precise edge.

    Great for the straight-line challenged |
    Verified Purchase

    I am making my first quilt and am terrible at making straight lines. With this cutter, my quilt is so straight! I was thrilled with how easily it cut through the fabric and how all my squares ended up so perfect. I'd highly recommend it! Note: I was cutting through cotton t-shirt material, so have no perspective on how it handles tougher fabrics. But for my purposes, it has been so handy!

    I was told by my wife to by this for her Christmas stocking so I did. She loves it! She made some jackets out of pull over style hoodies and these worked great for making the holes where she crocheted on the trim for the seams she made. Also the quick change on the cutting wheels is pretty nice to.

    Curved Cutting Tool vs. Straight Handle Cutting Tool |
    Verified Purchase

    This was a gift for a relative because she liked mine so much. When it arrived it was similar, but not exactly the same; the cutting tool was straight rather that curved like mine. This doesn't mean it won't work the same, I was just expecting the curved tool.

    First Time Quilter |
    Verified Purchase

    The "Fiskars Rotary Cutting Set" was such a good deal, I couldn't be happier. Even though I had some problems ordering it on my end, Amazon walked me through the process every step of the way. I've finally started my quilt and was a bit nervous using the cutter (because it is so sharp), but I was immediately at ease with the first cut. AND WHAT A DEAL ... can't go wrong with Fiskars products!

    Great set of tools |
    JamaicaVerified Purchase

    This is the best deal I could find on the Internet. If these items were to be bought separately the cost would have been much higher. I initially saw it for $36.02 and waited until the price went down to $27.49. For a beginner quilter who has used scissors, tape measure and a T-square these are like wonder tools. They will make my life so much easier. I highly recommend. I only gave it four stars because the mat is not as self healing as I was hoping. So far I have used it on one project and I can see cut lines in the areas that I used most.

    Good set for hobby sewing. |
    Verified Purchase

    This is a good set for me because I don't do a lot of sewing. It can be difficult to measure and cut large pieces, but for how little sewing I do, it doesn't make sense for me to invest in something bigger. It definitely works well and is a sturdy set. The blades are inexpensive to replace and don't need to be replaced too terribly often. This is also the best price I was able to find for this equipment.

    A great starter set for quilters |
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this set because I no longer live close enough to borrow my mother's all the time. It works great. I've only had to replace the blade once and I do a lot of cutting! If you're only going to have one ruler and one mat for cutting quilt blocks this is a good multipurpose set.

    Dull Cutter |
    KAILUA, HI, USVerified Purchase

    The cutting board and the ruler are great (at least in my beginner's eyes), but the cutting blade was totally dull. To cut through just 2 layers of flannel, I have to basically put the board on the floor, kneel there, and press down with most of the weight on the cutter. That's ridiculous. I don't know why they don't just include a working cutter in the first place; why sell kits with useless components? I called Amazon (since I couldn't find contact information here for the company) and they gave me a partial refund on the kit, so I'm ok with that, but better if they had just sold something that works. Now I just use the board and ruler to mark lines, and cut with my nice, sharp scissors.

    It is great value for sewing starter who is not ready to invest too much $$ into new hobbit yet. For more advance sewing, I'd suggest non-slip ruler for sure. The blade of rotary cutter is tiny bit wabblely, but it's sharp enouigh to cut through fabric with no problem. The cutting mate is great size and good quality.

    I love the precision. I know these kinds of things have been around for a long time, but it's new to me. I didn't actually expect to like it. I loved it. So much better than scissors, at least for straight cuts. Have not tried it for complex curves yet.

    Cuts like a charm |
    Verified Purchase

    So far so good! I've used this now a few times and it works fantastic. So much easier to cut with than scissors and I love that this board has the ruler that comes with it. Makes cutting that much easier. If you're needing to cut larger pieces of fabric, if recommend getting a bigger board. For me since I'm only doing projects that require smaller cuts of fabric is works perfect. One of these days I might get a bigger board just in case. Either way, happy with the purchase :)

    Eh... it works |
    Verified Purchase

    I've been sewing baby items for daughter, like, cloth diapers, bibs, and a shopping cart cover. I bought this to help me cut the fabric easier & faster; cutting multiple layers with a scissor hurts a lot so I figured this would make it easier. IT WORKS. BUT. Not that well. I would have to roll it over at least twice in order to cut the fabric, which is usually cotton. I've used it to cut a cereal box to use as a template and it worked ehh also. Still had to wroll 2 times over it. It works, but doesn't work as well as I've seen some use on YouTube (lol). Where they just roll it over once and it cuts it perfectly. This don't work like that. Cutting multiple layers be prepared to roll it over and over. I used it to cut 4 layers of fleece. It works but like mentioned I need to roll it over many times.

    Well-priced set, but mediocre cutter |
    Verified Purchase

    Good size cutting mat, but would be better if it was square so I don't have to keep rotating it for wider/longer fabric. Ruler is also a good size. Rotary cutter poor quality - handle not very substantial and blade was getting dull within a few passes through fairly lightweight fabric. Good deal for the set though - I'll probably just end up buying a better quality cutter in the future.

    Fiskars products never disappoint. I have used their garden tools for years, so was confident that the cutting set would be very good quality. The package makes for a good storage place when not in use. The cutter is easy to use, though, if I were doing a significant amount of cutting, I would go with the larger diameter cutter. Great product!

    Verified Purchase

    I bought this set because i wanted to try to make a rag quilt but did not want to invest a lot of money. It worked perfectly for cutting the fabric. I used it to cut 4-5 layers of flannel at a time, and that worked well. My mat is actually grey and my cutter is white, but that detail did not really matter to me. Cutter has a nice quick flip option to cover the blade. I have used it to make 2 baby sized 36x36 inch blankets, and a twin size (all 2 layers of flannel and batting layer) and it's still cutting like brand new. I am very satisfied! Thanks!

    Mat great, ruler good, rotary blade dull. |
    Verified Purchase

    The self-healing cutting mat is great. The ruler is good, but can slip on fabrics. The rotary cutter I received was dull and would have patches were it it wouldn't cut through one layer of mid-weight fabric. I ended buying a bigger rotary cutter (60 mm) at a fabric store and like that one much better. Just to note: The mat I received was grey, the ruler was clear with orange shading and my rotary cutter was white.

    Great price, great starter set |
    Verified Purchase

    I really love this set. I was just starting out sewing a couple of months ago and this was one of the first items I purchased. I love the self-healing capabilities as well as the sharp blade that glides right through the fabric. I also love that it has a safety feature so that when it's put away I don't have to worry about my young children getting a hold of it and slicing open their fingers! This was really a great first cutting mat to get. I haven't done any really large projects yet (mostly just skirts and clothing for my daughter) and I know I've read reviews saying that they wished the mat was larger but really, this was perfect for me. If it were any larger I'm not sure I'd have the space to store it :). It's just the right size if you're mostly doing smaller projects or you're just a beginner like myself. I highly recommend it!

    MONTANAVerified Purchase

    Pretty good for starters. If you are serious about sewing then get a better, larger board with a ruler with a lip the allows for perfect 90 degree cuts. The cutter is just okay too. The blade when loose on my once but it's saying tight pretty good. Found this at JoAnns for $55 so defiinitely a good deal on hear unless you have a JoAnns coupon.

    I am happy with the rotary cutter and cutting mat but wish there had been more information about it as to whether it could be used to cut paper as well as fabric. I couldn't even find information on the internet that would specifically say you could use a fabric rotary cutter on paper and I don't think when I ordered it that it stated it was a Fabric cutter.

    The mat is grey on one side and black on the other so, no matter the colour of your material, it really shows up. The ruler is long so you can line it up on both sides of the mat. The cutter is light weight and fits the hand perfectly. What else could you ask for!

    IllinoisVerified Purchase

    The cutting mat is smaller than I pictured it, though the measurements were on the website. I'm a beginner at quilting, so it's big enough for me to use at home. The only real problem is the rotary cutter, which must have an imperfection, because it leaves a little uncut place every time it goes around. I just go back over it, but it is a bit frustrating when I expect the fabric to be in 2 pieces and it isn't.

    Great set! |
    Verified Purchase

    First off this was the best price ever. In stores it is nearly twice the amount. Second it is awesome. The rotary cutter is way better than the one I already had. It is nice and sharp and easy to use. The mat itself is perfect not just for fabric cutting purposes. I have also been using it with my exacto blade when cutting paper stencils. The size is perfect for my needs. It seems like it will hold up to the abuse I put it through. I even ironed something on it not thinking about it and it warped a little and has flattened back out. I really haven't used the straight edge yet. But it seems quality and has so far survived my chaotic workspace, three cats, and a 1 year old. So I am pretty sure it is good too. :)

    My daughter had been wanting one of the rotary cutters for quite some time. We knew we would have to get a mat also but they are all so pricey we kept waiting. When I found this combo online I couldn't help but love the price. It has been a great product. She loves it and I have even used it a couple of times.

    Good Starter Mat But Terrible Cutter! |
    New York, USAVerified Purchase

    I hadn't sewn in 20 years and had donated my Omnigrid mat and cutter. I purchased this Fiskars set based on the reviews. The mat is OK. As others have mentioned, it doesn't look like the image on the product page. It has a series of concentric squares marked in the middle of each side, with the largest being 12". A larger mat would be great, but I don't have a lot of space, which means I would have to fold the fabric and have to cut through several layers. This is the problem; the cutter is terrible! It barely cuts through 2 layers of light cotton fabric. I have to go back over the cuts and it creates a great deal of waste and is very frustrating. Even, precise cutting is essential for any project. The ruler is OK but it does slip, so you have to be careful. I will purchase a higher end cutter because fabric is too expensive to shred!

    The mat and measuring tool are nice, which is why I gave it 1 star, but the main reason I bought this was for the rotary cutter.

    The actual mat I received with this is the one shown on this page. http://www.amazon.com/Fiskars-24-Inch-36-Inch-Healing-Cutting/dp/B000YZASYO/ref=pd_sbs_ac_5?ie=UTF8&refRID=1YJGRF5M66HQKNNB2P9T Overall the set works well. The mat is nice to have next to you for making small cuts quickly, and is a huge help when cutting many small squares or strips. For pieces larger than 24" it's not as useful as you have to move everything around. I generally use this for detail work and normal scissors for large cuts.

    Great Starter Set for Scrapbooking and Sewing |
    Verified Purchase

    I use this set to cut scrapbook paper and material. For some reason I can not cut a straight, even line with a scissors to save my life. This set is extremely easy to use and has resolved that problem for me. I am not a "serious" or scrapbooker or sewer. I am sure there are some really fancy cutting mats out there but for my occasional crafts this works great. I suspect the rotary wheel will probably get dull after not too long, but so far it is fine. I usually cut a maximum of about 3 or 4 sheets of paper or 2 layers of material and as long as I am sure to apply steady pressure it cuts all the way through.

    Being new to quilting I had a friend recommend this product. I love it! It's easy to use and perfect for me needs but BEWARE! The rotary cutter is super sharp. This past weekend I was cutting out quilt squares and I was holding down the Acrylic Ruler with my left hand and cutting with my right. I hit the ruler with the knife and ended up slicing my index finger open and needing 5 stitches. This blade is super sharp!!!! If you are even a bit klutzy or worry about cutting your hand then I recommend also purchasing the Fons and Porter Klutz glove to go along with your rotary cutting set. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001R4YTKK/ref=pe_385040_30332190_TE_M3T1_ST1_dp_1

    I needed a new cutting mat and wanted a ruler that was as long as my mat. The mat feels as nice as my original mat that wore out after about 25 years of use. I am donating the rotary cutter to a group of ladies who make quilts for the homeless as I prefer a more ergonomic Fiskars rotary cutter.

    I had no idea these rotary cutters and self-healing mats existed until I joined a quilting group. This kit even comes with a ruler! I used the Fiskars rotary cutter in class and liked how easy it was to work, so I ordered it. My daughter and I have already used the kit to make two tie blankets.

    My first time to own a rotary cutter. This was a great way to get all three items at what I think is a good price. They work great. I used them to cut microfleece for two no-sew blankets. That's a lot of very short cuts! The cutter worked a lot better than my fabric scissors. Pad protected the table.

    I love this! I am a beginner sewer/crafter. This is all I need for simple sewing projects. The mat size is just right. This is my first rotary cutter, it's not as sharp as I was hoping, I am finding I need quite a bit of pressure, but overall it gets the job done and at this price, is worth it for me.

    Very good item. I'm new at using this method of cutting, and was very pleased with how easy it can be! It may be that the cutter could be a little sharper, but it's fine for the lightweight fabrics I'm cutting. Highly recommend to anyone who wants an easier way to cut fabric into squares, strips, etc.

    Very affordable rotary cutting set. The blade on the cutter is plenty sharp for most lightweight fabrics, it may have some issues with denim or other heavier fabrics but I don't really have any experience with that. This may not be the best board and cutter out there but for the price it is certainly worth it.

    Great cutting set! Works excellent so far, even if I double or triple the fabric (though I'm probably dulling the blade more quickly).

    Always love good starter kits. Things that hand you the basic, and everything you need to follow through with the basics.

    I love it!! As a novice, I probably don't know any better, but it does the job for me. Beware, the rotary cutter loves blood and bites. I learned my lesson on how not to hold the blade too close to my other hand while cutting fabric (maybe I should cut my fabrics when I am more alert and not at 3AM while my little one stirs around in his crib).

    This is perfect! I make a lot of blankets and tag blankets for family and friends and this is big enough for me to place large pieces of fabric onto.

I wish I found this sooner as it's making my tag blanket hobby so much easier.

    Loses sharpness and OK mat |
    Verified Purchase

    It did the job, but the rotary cutter loses its sharpness very quickly and I found myself having to move over the fabric multiple times to get a good cut. The mat is OK, but indents stay in the mat and it doesn't go back to it's original condition. I think the indents make it difficult to cut evenly when you try to cut a new piece of fabric over them.

    The cutting mat is actually reversible-- one side is predominately light gray, the other dark gray. This allows for a bit of versatility. I have found that it helps with cutting down material and blocks for quilts. I do wish that the ruler had a lip as some of my other quilting rulers do to help prevent slipping while cutting, but other than that this is pretty helpful.

    The cutting mat is smaller than I pictured it, though the measurements were on the website. I'm a beginner at quilting, so it's big enough for me to use at home. The only real problem is the rotary cutter, which must have an imperfection, because it leaves a little uncut place every time it goes around. I just go back over it, but it is a bit frustrating when I expect the fabric to be in 2 pieces and it isn't.

    Excellent set for sewers and quilters, but geeze be careful with that blade. Three times now I've barely touched my hand or finger and it makes burning cuts like paper cuts.

    Cuts through a lot, very convenient. I love the ruler. I even use this to cut through foam board and it was able to cut through chipboard as well. The only issue is that it doesn't stay straight while I use it but I think that's just me, I just don't do straight lines at all. It's something I haven't mastered. However, I have managed to cut things straighter with this than with scissors so that's a bonus.

I love the face my mat is two sided, it's like getting two uses out of it. Also be sure to make sure the rotary dial is not too tight or loose when you begin cutting, over time it can loosen and the blade will wobble. Happy quilting!

I've only just started using these and am having little issues here & there but I think that may just be from my own inexperience.

    I've been using this product for about 2 years. It has two sides so once you start getting a couple of rough spots (which happens to ALL cutting boards) you can flip it over and double the life. I'm very happy with this product. Good for most cutting/sewing projects. Obviously, bigger is better, but this size is good because it fits on my table and i can just do a little math and folding to cut my bigger projects. Any smaller would be too small.

    Best set, best price. |
    Verified Purchase

    Amazon has the BEST price for this. I looked at several places in-store for the mat and rotary cutter, and the prices in-store were all anywhere from $15-$50 higher. I have used this quite a few times already and it is great. The rotary cutter can cut through several pieces of fabric at once. The mat is great at repairing itself - I have yet to see any slices from the rotary cutter left on the mat yet. Highly recommended - I know it will last me for a long time.

    Totally worth it. In our area, the rotary cutter alone is around $30. They actually sell this set in the store for nearly $60. The product is high quality and works great. I cannot speak to longevity because I have not had it long but it works great now. Oh...and if you are frequently cutting fabric with regular scissors and have not bought a rotary scissor, you have NO IDEA what you are missing. I wish I would have bought one when I began sewing. Well worth the money!

    Verified Purchase

    Purchased this set because I had a bunch of people ask for Fleece blankets this year for Christmas and I have a hard time with my hands cutting out all that fringe on the blankets. 10 blankets later with this Cutting set my hands are FINE and don't hurt one bit. Not to mention I was able to cut out all the blankets in record time. This thing cut through fleece like butter! The blankets turned out great I can't wait for everyone to open them on Christmas and enjoy them.

    Verified Purchase

    I am just starting to learn to quilt so I decided to order the set. So far I am very happy with it. It arrived right on time - in fact a day early. The safety guard on the blade is very easy to open and close. The cutter easily cut 4 layers which was what I needed for my project - I haven't tried more layers. The package was easy open - zip pull tab on the back and everything was reachable. After cutting all the pieces for my first quilt there are no marks on the mat.

    So far so good! I've used this now a few times and it works fantastic. So much easier to cut with than scissors and I love that this board has the ruler that comes with it. Makes cutting that much easier. If you're needing to cut larger pieces of fabric, if recommend getting a bigger board. For me since I'm only doing projects that require smaller cuts of fabric is works perfect. One of these days I might get a bigger board just in case. Either way, happy with the purchase :)

    I am learning to quilt and was advised to pick up a cutting board, rotary cutter and ruler. I looked around and found that each piece individually was quite expensive. When I saw this set I thought the price was too good to be true but thought I would order it and see for myself. The first set that came in I found the acrylic ruler cracked. The exchange process was super easy and very fast. When my second set came in I was extremely pleased. I would recommend this product to anyone.

    It's great for what I need- sewing, screen printing, etc. The price (under $30) is awesome for the set. Other places want $15 just for a 17 inch ruler or the rotary and blades. The self-healing mat looks like it does work (it's double sided!). I love the big clear ruler. The width helps a lot when dealing with curved up film(screen printing) or thin fabrics. This is the first I've ever owned. I'd give it 5 stars if I had exp with other products like this and this one came out on top.

    This was exactly what I needed!! I wanted to make a quilt for my nephew and wanted it to be perfect. So I bought this so everything would be even and exact. This definitely worked. My only complaint is that the blade on the rotary cutter because slightly dull after a few passes, which I don't understand. I have 20 year old scissors that are still sharp as a blade. lol But thankfully I was smart enough to get a sharpener for the cutter. All in all I am very pleased, definitely recommend this.

    Absolutely love it! the cutter works wonders, the mat is sturdy and nice - (warning! do not place hot iron on it! i didnt realize the mat was underneath the fabric when i ironed it and it got disfigured slightly.) and so is the ruler. ALL super functional and good quality. Perhaps the green mats work better as far as reflection/fabric etc. not sure. my eyes got a bit bamboozled at times when cutting, but this was my first time using such devices, so might be that i simply need to get used to it.

    I bought this set because i wanted to try to make a rag quilt but did not want to invest a lot of money. It worked perfectly for cutting the fabric. I used it to cut 4-5 layers of flannel at a time, and that worked well. My mat is actually grey and my cutter is white, but that detail did not really matter to me. Cutter has a nice quick flip option to cover the blade. I have used it to make 2 baby sized 36x36 inch blankets, and a twin size (all 2 layers of flannel and batting layer) and it's still cutting like brand new. I am very satisfied! Thanks!

    For the price, this set can't be beat. The matte is large enough for me to cut patterns with and for the price of a matte the same size without the accessories. The cutter is great too, it's not good for cutting tight curves but cuts very smooth and through several layers of heavy fabric at a time. The ruler is very wide! Useful for quilting, not useful for anything else as it becomes a bit unwieldy. Overall, I am very pleased with this set, especially considering the price for all three is the same as for just one at any craft store.

    This is a must have for home sewing kits. I like the texture of the mat for cutting. I like the measuring tool and the cutter too of course. I use this with my new sewing machine - of course. It makes everything easier. Good quality. Don't store the mat/board in a position where it isn't flat though, I can see it taking on the shape of its storage shape very easily. The cutter is very sharp and dangerous. Keep kids away from it. Cuts very well though. Nothing bad to say about this product, I would buy it again.

The mat is nice to have next to you for making small cuts quickly, and is a huge help when cutting many small squares or strips. For pieces larger than 24" it's not as useful as you have to move everything around. I generally use this for detail work and normal scissors for large cuts.

    I am a first-time quilter and this mat, ruler and rotary cutter has made all the difference in the world for me. It is easy to use, and fits nicely on a small table top. The right-angle markers on the ruler have made a big difference for cutting and measuring, when you can't see both ends of the mat easily. The rotary cutter is awesome. A lot of research went into the purchase of this particular set of tools. I would definitely recommend this set. Fiskars continues to impress me with their wide range of quality tools.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this rotary cutter and the fact that you can buy replacement blades for a reasonable price to keep it running well. I thin it's a great price especially compared with the mats & cutters at Joann Fabrics which is the only store in my area with things like this. The mat is more than big enough for most of my projects (baby projects, mittens, accessories) but I would also considering ordering the 24x36 mat separately. The ruler is especially helpful (the clear, separate ruler) for making square edges.

    A great value package with a good sized board, a very useful and good sized ruler and a basic cutter. Great value for money as you get three items for what some charge just for the cost of the board. I was worried the board may be rolled when packaged but this was not possible as the whole starter kit came as a packaged set that couldn't be rolled. The board did not have a chemical smell that some people complained of with other boards and I have had no problems so far with marks left on the board due to cutting.

First time using it as smooth awesome but once I got to the last two pieces of my pattern to cut out the rotary cutter blade started to not move, then fell off, I wiped off any fabric fluffs and then put it back togeather and now it refuses to cut. Not sure If I? am doing something wrong of it its just a cheap little cutter. Probably gonna go hit up a store nearby see if they know or just buy a newer/better one.

    I bought my out-of-town daughter a quilting sewing machine and rotary cutting set for Christmas so she could start her first quilt. She called to say she absolutely loved everything and that the cutting mat was so much better than my old one. When I couldn't find my old set, I bought a mat, ruler & cutting tool at Walmart. A couple days later I went to her house with my cutting set and compared it to hers. Exact same mat and cutter, but the ruler was nicer than mine for about $15 less than I had just paid at Walmart. I immediately ordered a second set for my other daughter.

    I recently started sewing and I needed a large cutting mat and clear big ruler so I ordered this set. Rotary cutter was just a bonus, however to my surprise, the rotary cutter is what I love the most! It is so sharp, cut through layers of fabrics in ease. Blade is so sharp that I did accidentally cut myself a few times, so be very careful. The rotary cutter makes it so easy to cut patterns with curves and with the large clear ruler, straight cut is perfectly straight too. I am so glad that I got this kit, it's reasonable, but great must have to crafters.

    I got this kit because I had to cut out fabric and make a square as a wedding surprise multi-donor quilt. I'm not a quilter but wanted to be part of it. When I looked at tutorials on-line I could tell some tools would really help me get things right, the lines straight, the measurements perfect, etc. It would've been hard for me to do such a good job without this set of tools. My square came out beautifully! It was so much fun with the mat, rotary cutter, and ruler that I'm planning on making some covers for my kitchen potholders. This was just the right size. Some sets I looked at were just too small. Good price too! Easy to store it away when done too.

    I cut A LOT of fabric for sewing and sometimes have multiples of an item that I had wished I could just zip through with a rotary cutter rather than a ruler, a pencil and scissors. I looked in retail shops for sets like this and also separates. This set was almost half the price or less than those retail shops I looked in and is exactly the size I needed for my little "monotonous" projects. I have used it every day since my purchase. The mat is in perfect shape and "heals" so quickly, it's freaky! The ruler is perfectly straight and easy to measure with. Just be careful with the blade, it is SHARP coming out of the chute!

    I have this set, and I liked it enough to send it to my friend for her birthday. She loves it. Everyone's happy. What more could you ask for? I especially like that if I put the cutting board on a surface that has bumps, the bumps don't interfere. The board smooths out anything under it. The measurements are accurate. The material of which the set is made is durable. When my children were young (ages 2 to teens), I made almost all their clothes. I even made my own wedding gown. I really wish I'd had this when I was doing all that sewing. The good part: now I can use it for my grandchildren's clothes!

    Verified Purchase

    I'm really glad I bought this pack - it was totally worth the money. I use it on every project I work on. I know it says it's for quilters, but it's very useful for apparel makers and crafters- I use the rotary cutter for all my projects, and the board is great. One thing worth noting is that if you leave the board in heat, it might warp like mine did (I left it in a room in the sun, and I guess it warped). It doesn't actually affect anything I work on, but it is a little annoying that happened. I checked the price on this pack; it would be about 33% more expensive at Jo Anns or elsewhere. So glad I checked on amazon :)

    Great Starter Set for Scrapbooking and Sewing |
    Verified Purchase

    I use this set to cut scrapbook paper and material. For some reason I can not cut a straight, even line with a scissors to save my life. This set is extremely easy to use and has resolved that problem for me. I am not a "serious" or scrapbooker or sewer. I am sure there are some really fancy cutting mats out there but for my occasional crafts this works great. I suspect the rotary wheel will probably get dull after not too long, but so far it is fine. I usually cut a maximum of about 3 or 4 sheets of paper or 2 layers of material and as long as I am sure to apply steady pressure it cuts all the way through.

    Verified Purchase

    What a great trio. The mat is very sturdy but gives enough so can be handled with ease. The lines and numbers are clear. The acrylic ruler is a very hard, durable plastic with clear lines and numerals. The rotary color is as sharp as can be with a safety cover that is easily controlled by a switch on the side that can be pushed with one's thumb. When looking at other sets or mats be sure of what size is best for you. Some folks who do a lot of sewing, especially pattern sewing, might want to go for a bigger mat. (They're also more $$.) The size of this one is good for my projects. When I do have a pattern that's larger I just keep moving the mat underneath the fabric/pattern.

    Cutting Tool Not For The Faint Of Heart! |
    Verified Purchase

    The self healing mat is a nice size for pretty much an of the projects I have going on. The ruler is great, also. It would be nice if it had those nifty grippers, but it works well the way it is. However, the rotary blade is sleek, and the handle is smooth. There is no guard over the blade when it is in use. I was using correctly, and carefully. My hand slipped and now I'm sporting a nice slice in my finger that literally went to the bone. It needed stitches, but I was able to get the bleeding slowed enough so I didn't go to the ER. At least I can say the blade is plenty sharp enough. I went the next day and bought a different rotary tool with better safety features.

    Being new to quilting I had a friend recommend this product. I love it! It's easy to use and perfect for me needs but BEWARE! The rotary cutter is super sharp. This past weekend I was cutting out quilt squares and I was holding down the Acrylic Ruler with my left hand and cutting with my right. I hit the ruler with the knife and ended up slicing my index finger open and needing 5 stitches. This blade is super sharp!!!! If you are even a bit klutzy or worry about cutting your hand then I recommend also purchasing the Fons and Porter Klutz glove to go along with your rotary cutting set. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001R4YTKK/ref=pe_385040_30332190_TE_M3T1_ST1_dp_1

    Fiskars Rotary Cutting Set is nice and does it's job! I'm an infant Seamstress, so all of this is extremely new to me. I used this entire set together to make alterations and they served their purpose. The cutting mat is small though; Meaning when I altered my skirt, I had to keep moving the Mat down because my skirt was long and the Mat wasn't as long as my skirt. I ordered another Mat which is 36 X 48 so I'm hoping that one is long enough for the length in which I like to wear my skirts and dresses. Overall, this is a nice set to have and it serves it's purpose. It was packaged nicely, nothing was broken or missing and it arrived on time and the blade on the Rotary Cutter was sharp, not dull.

    I absolutely love this set. I am horrible at cutting or drawing in a straight line when I am free handing it, and I don't know why I did not buy this set a long time ago. It is absolutely essential for a crafter. I use it to cut fabric for various sewing projects and I couldn't live without it now that I have been using it consistently. The lines are clear and easy to read and the blade on the rotary cutter is super sharp and can go through several layers of fabric with ease.

    Verified Purchase

    I recently took up sewing as a hobby and I purchased this cutting set to help when I found that plain scissors just won't make the right cut sometimes. This set is easy to use, sturdy and accurate. Just remember to push down hard when you are using the clear ruler on top of fabric because it slides very easily. The see-through ruler allows you to check your measurements once, twice, three times, to make sure that you will have the exact size you need. This has really helped me speed up my cutting time and the mat seems like it will last for a long time. Unless you are expecting to work on very large patterns or don't feel like you can hold down the ruler and roll the rotary cutter at the same time, this set is perfect for you!

    This item is perfect. I actually received a grey/light grew mat with various size squares, and was actually of a higher quality and design than pictured--a nice surprise! Overall, this mat is of superb quality. I can tell that I will have it for a very long time. The cutter itself is extremely sharp. I haven't had to change blades yet, but I suspect that the process will be very easy. You have to be careful to cut straight-on and not towards the plastic guide (which is included and pictured at the bottom of the picture). I cut a small notch into the plastic guide with not much effort while cutting (which speaks to the sharpness of the cutter!). Overall, this product is a must for anyone who sews quilts, curtains, linens, etc. and makes frequent cuts.

    The only thing it has cut cleanly is my finger. |
    Verified Purchase

    This mat and ruler are great, but the rotary cutter is awful. It skips a lot and I have to go back around all my fabric pieces with scissors afterward. I will admit that cutting "connect the dots" style is neater than using scissors alone, but the whole point of a rotary cutter is to keep scissor work to a minimum. I tried pressing down extra hard on it, but it still skipped and then my finger slipped and got sliced open on the unprotected top of the blade. (I was pretty frustrated with it, and I'm sure that was a factor in the accident). I tried rolling back and forth a few times, which did not help, not even the least little bit. Possibly, the blade just has a couple of dull spots, and a good sharpening would help it cut cleanly, but I ordered a different cutter with a better handle design to prevent slicing my finger open again if my grip slips.

    Happy return to fabric cutting! |
    Verified Purchase

    I lost the ruler to my old cutting set and it was almost as cheap to buy the whole set as the ruler alone. And, who doesn't need a second mat and rotary cutter? The mat is soooo much better than my old one! The ruler markings are placed on both sides of the outside cutting lines and are easy to see when cutting larger (or smaller) pieces of fabric. There are unobtrusive dots at all of the 1/4 inch increments, in both directions, making it simple for accurate cuts. The mat is reversible, one side is light gray, the other a darker gray. There are other visual clues that make it really hard to mess up cuts using a wrong line. The picture does not do the mat justice. The rotary cutter is simple and as effective as the more elaborate Fiskars rotary cutters.

I have brought this separated and it has been so expensive; with this, you have your bundle in one shoot! *The matt have several squares inside with if you are precise you wouldn’t need a ruler to cut small squares. *The ruler is very thick and it has a hole on the edge to hang it. The measurements are many inside in ONE ruler. *The rotator is the best than the other 2 rotator blades I have bought (which have been useless, so I only have use scissors to cut fabric).

    Good Starter Mat But Terrible Cutter! |
    Verified Purchase

    I hadn't sewn in 20 years and had donated my Omnigrid mat and cutter. I purchased this Fiskars set based on the reviews. The mat is OK. As others have mentioned, it doesn't look like the image on the product page. It has a series of concentric squares marked in the middle of each side, with the largest being 12". A larger mat would be great, but I don't have a lot of space, which means I would have to fold the fabric and have to cut through several layers. This is the problem; the cutter is terrible! It barely cuts through 2 layers of light cotton fabric. I have to go back over the cuts and it creates a great deal of waste and is very frustrating. Even, precise cutting is essential for any project. The ruler is OK but it does slip, so you have to be careful. I will purchase a higher end cutter because fabric is too expensive to shred!

    This is a real bargain. A great set at a great price. I thought it would be pretty basic and not as good as my OLFA mat, but it turns out this was a winner. FISKARS really does a nice job. The ruler is absolutely a favorite. It is worth the price of this set on AMAZON. The mat is great and just as good as my OLFA mat. I bought this because I couldn't fit my OLFA into my luggage and was traveling and needed a mat and ruler at my destination. I brought my own better rotary cutter. The one thing about this set that is even a minor drawback is the cutter which is a very basic FISKARS rotary cutter, so be careful - there is no real protection from a cut. FISKARS makes a very nice safety cutter that I use with my mat. Again, I highly recommend this set - both for the price and for the quality. It comes in a great box which can be used for storage in future and slid into a closet.

    Bought it for leatherwork, great value |
    Verified Purchase

    This is a great cutting mat, the fact that the ruler and the rotary cutting wheel come with it just add to the icing on the cake. This is cheaper than lone mats. The mat is thinner than other brands, but still works great. The ruler is large enough to hold down a large piece of leather without letting it move, there are no millimeter measurements, only inches, but it should be good enough for any duty you need it for. And the cutter... it goes through a piece of leather like butter. The cutter also comes with a blade guard which retracts to allow you to cut and then protect both you and the blade from any damage. The blade is SHARP, and very easy to replace as well with readily available spare blades. That said, a rotary cutter with an angle to the blade would be easier to use and better. If you're looking for a cutting mat, this is cheaper than the competition, works almost as well and is better value for money. Highly recommended

    Four stars because... |
    Verified Purchase

    The design could easily and rather cheaply be designed with an oval (cut-out) handle made into one of the edges of this product facilitating carrying and hanging of the item, As it is i'm keeping the cardboard it came it to prevent a curve from forming while standing it on edge for storing. Another design observation i can make is to compare this to an Olfa I received but had to return because of the horrible off-gassing odor of it's plastic material... The Fiskars product was not nearly as pungent. I cannot say if the Olfa wouldn't be fine after time but I was sensitive enough to the problem I didn't want to wait to find out. Even my husband was bothered by it. Oh and some more reasons.... the Fiskars cost less.I like the tan color better than green (not that important but just saying) AND lastly it came with two bonus items; an acrylic cutting ruler/edge and a fiscars .45 mm rotary cutter. Clearly this transaction over all was a five-star event but for the oversight in putting a handle on a pretty large piece of plastic can't go without mention.

    Wonderful set! |
    Verified Purchase

    The Fiskars set came with one rotary cutter with classic 45mm rolling blade, a double-sided self-healing 18" x 24" cutting mat, and a 6" x 24" clear acrylic ruler. Rotary cutters, when paired with a ruler and self healing mat, can be perfect for cutting small, measured patchwork pieces of fabric as well as huge yardages. These three pieces have been a pleasure to work with - they are ease to use, sturdy, and precise. The ruler provides a stable guide for the rotary cutter, which effortlessly cuts through any fabric (you can cut up to 4 layers of fabric with one cut too). The rotary cutter fits nicely in my hand. In fact, I purchased a second one so that I could have one dedicated cutter for fabric and one for paper. (FYI - You should never use the same scissors/cutters for both, and forget about hair trimming scissors.) The self-healing mat is clearly labeled and offers a really nice grid with vertical, horizontal, and diagonal cutting lines. Overall I'm thrilled with this set. It's sleek and sturdy, and at under $35 I'd say the value is huge.

    Pretty good. |
    Verified Purchase

    For a first-timer with a rotary cutter and cutting board, all I can say is that l like it. The cutting mat is bigger than I thought it would be, and the ruler is bigger...which is a good thing. The mat isn't self-healing, but oh well--better than my table. The rotary cutter is something to get used to. It's sharp. But the 'protective' cover is not very protective at all. It barely covers the blade's edge. Also, I get tons of fabric debris along the blade. I'm tempted to swipe my finger across it to clean it, but have to stop myself because, well... it's a razor blade. lol. When using the blade, I find that I begin in a straight line, and end up curving something serious. Perhaps that'll fix with practice. My only qualm is that when using the rotary cutter along the edge of the plastic ruler, I get little shavings off from the ruler. Maybe lining the edges with metal...??? Maybe I should be grateful for the low amount spent on this product... Maybe I should get better at using the darned thing. It's pretty good for a beginner. I don't need anything fancy. I say go for it.

    good beginners rotary cutting set |
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this rotary cutting set because it looked to be a good deal. I have wanted a rotary cutter for a while now, but using the rotary cutter on you sewing table without any protection can seriously damage you table. So this set gave me, not only the rotary cutter, but also the board and a see through ruler that is very helpful for cutting straight lines. The rotary cutter is super sharp. So be careful when using it. You can also buy other extra cutters that you can use to replace the one that is on it now. I'm thinking of buying a wave blade. This give you a wavy edge that helps if your textile frays a lot, or so they say. For the record I am not a quilter, I sew apparel. This product is marketed as being for quilters, but I can tell you that as a hobby seamstress a rotary cutter comes in handy. You don't have to use scissors for straight cutting, also because of its shape you can use it for curved pieces. The cutting board is a little larger than I thought. But because of its larger size you can cut larger pieces. So it has its benefits. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase. The price was good for such a set and I know it will make my sewing go a lot faster and easier now.

    Hoped for Better |
    Verified Purchase

    Overall, this set is functional. I'm a beginning quilter, and I was really hoping I wouldn't need anything more than this set of rotary cutter, mat and ruler. That is not the case. I cut my fabrics on a finished wood table. This mat moves. I have to set it against the wall so that it won't move while I'm cutting. And unfortunately the rotary cutter is not as sharp as I would like. I'm only cutting 2 layers of cotten quilting fabric and I need to press a lot harder with this rotary cutter than I expected. I'm going to try a 60mm rotary cutter and see if it is just me or if I just happened to get a blade that wasn't as sharp as needed. I like the ruler. I like that it has the half inch around the perimeter shaded in pink. That is very helpful. I had hoped for more, and I'm afraid I will probably be re-selling the mat and rotary cutter for a very low price or giving them away because I will now be buying better tools. Overall, this set is usable, but not ideal. I recommend spending a bit more and getting individual ruler, mat that doesn't slide, and cutter that is sharper.

    Measure twice, cut once! |
    Verified Purchase

    I'm very happy with this product. I have been sewing since I was a little girl, but just recently took up quilting. This package was recommended to me by a "master quilter." The set is a great deal, considering that for the listed price you get the clear ruler and the cutter along with the mat. The mat is a reasonable size. I actually returned another 12" mat sinceI found that to be too small. This is large enough to work with, but doesn't dominate your sewing space. The mat's hard surface doesn't really "self heal" like you would expect, but it stands up well to the cutter or being scratched too deeply. The ruler is marked well to help line up where you want to cut and your measurements as they correspond to the fabric and/or the mat. I wishi it had a little more of a grip since I've had a few slips here and there, but if you press down firmly on it, you should get the result you want. The cutter is SHARP! I actually cut my hand on it when I forgot to close the cover on it. Oops! Oww! Anyways, it slices right through the fabric which is wonderful when you are trying to quickly get clean edges. Overall, this is a good buy and I recommend to those who are both new and experienced with sewing!

    Mat great, ruler good, rotary blade dull. |
    Verified Purchase

    The self-healing cutting mat is great. The ruler is good, but can slip on fabrics. The rotary cutter I received was dull and would have patches were it it wouldn't cut through one layer of mid-weight fabric. I ended buying a bigger rotary cutter (60 mm) at a fabric store and like that one much better. Just to note: The mat I received was grey, the ruler was clear with orange shading and my rotary cutter was white.

    Verified Purchase

    This is a good set for me because I don't do a lot of sewing. It can be difficult to measure and cut large pieces, but for how little sewing I do, it doesn't make sense for me to invest in something bigger. It definitely works well and is a sturdy set. The blades are inexpensive to replace and don't need to be replaced too terribly often. This is also the best price I was able to find for this equipment.

    This is a great starter set but do yourself a very big favor and buy extra blades (about $19 for five). The blade that came with my set was very dull and definitely did not "cut like butter". When I got the new blades, it was like night and day, I could just zip through several layers with hardly any pressure. Otherwise I love the set and it's made my sewing projects much more fun.

    Verified Purchase

    This is a great set of high quality items for cutting fabric. The size is perfect for cutting quilt fabrics. For garments, the cutting board is small, so I have to keep moving it around under the fabric if I want to cut it with the wheel. I really prefer cutting using the wheel to scissors and am thinking about getting a larger cutting board. The quality of the product is top notch though.

    I bought this for my very crafty son. He's deep into the production of everything duct tape. The surface of the cutting board is really large, so he has plenty of workspace.

And bonus!, the rotary cutting tool has been a real help in cutting fine slices of duct tape. He loves it!

    I asked a question on the forum if I could cut duct tape on the mat, and got wildly different answers. I can tell you now that it's great for duct tape projects; no sticky residue whatsoever on the mat. Great for cutting fabric for sewing as well. Good and easy blade cover/lever to protect the blade; my 4 year old didn't hurt himself on it when he picked it up.

    In my new hobby of quilting I would have to say that this is a necessary tool. The board was much bigger than I thought it would be. Easy to see guidlines. This is not a toy. It is a tool.

    Great little starter set for the price |
    Verified Purchase

    This is a wonderful starter set. The rotary cutter is simple to use and has a retractable cover for the blade. It is simple to change the blade, as well. It is easily used by both lefties and righties. The only complaint is that the handle is a bit thin. It would be easier on my hands if a little thicker, but I could definitely use this one forever if I had no other options. The blade size is perfect for most jobs. The ruler is clearly marked, and has extra markings for seam allowance (1/2 extra at two edges, marked in 1/4" increments). This is the best feature of the entire set, in my opinion. Very helpful. It also has 30, 45, & 60 degree angles clearly marked on two corners (one with seam allowance and one without). The mat is what I fight with the most. It is clearly marked and very nice-looking, but dulls the blades pretty quickly. I am told this is normal with the grey and white mats. This one is no exception. My blade went from very sharp to completely dull in a matter of days. I was working on a twin-size H-block puzzle quilt and couldn't get all the pieces cut from one blade. I have the titanium ones being shipped now. Maybe they will fare better. All in all, this is a great set. When I get ready, though, I will be purchasing a different mat and gifting this one on. Hope this review helps. Would buy the set again. It was a great deal, and the blades dull faster, but I'm hoping the better blades solve that problem. Happy cutting!

    I waited until I had used this a good deal before writing the review |
    Verified Purchase

    I waited until I had used this a good deal before writing the review. Thus far it has been roughly 11 months and I have sewn a lot of clothing items, used it to cut excess fabric from random things. Every time I go to store it I end up pulling it out within a day or so to use it. The blade is still sharp enough, and do be careful! After 8 months of use I was cutting velvet to make stockings and ran the blade into my hand, it was still sharp enough to slice right through my skin! On that note, the little switch is perfectly placed and the blade guard works beautifully so there is no risk of cutting yourself or anything else on accident. I have one tiny qualm though. I decided to use the self healing mat with an exacto knife and card stock to cut out a stencil. And the mat got sliced pretty badly and in that particular corner it is still a tiny bit mucked up. I was using a lot of pressure to try and precisely cut my design, so that was probably a factor. The good thing is there are two sides so I still have full use of the opposite side of it. And the mat completely "healed" itself from any cuts made with the rotary cutter. Long story short, I can't believe I didn't buy this sooner with how often I sew. It has made life so so soo much easier!

    I hadn't used a rotary cutter before and figured the price was right for the system even if the cutter was junk. I was making a fleece tie sleeping bag which required cutting through 3 layers of fleece at a time. I pushed so hard that it left fleece in my mat. The cutter only seemed to score the fabric or cut partially through the first layer. I had to use my scissors to finish the cuts. Yes, I did have the guard off :). Just got my olfa 60mm in the mail and cut through 6 layers of fleece without much trouble at all. Decent buy for the mat and acrylic guide but buy a better trimmer!

    I'm a novice at sewing but I wanted to have the right supplies before I even started. This was recommended right up there with the sewing machine as being one of the most important things to have. To my surprise the mat is actually a good size. It's look very high quality. The ruler is very solid and sturdy. And the rotary cutter looks extremely sharp. I like the button control that exposes the blade or shields it. I have not tried it yet but I have watched videos of how well it cuts and I have no doubts that it will work very well. I also like that the blades can be replaced on the cutter. That's always a nice thing, I will update if a problem occurs. But from just looking at it then it's quite professional.

    Dull Cutter |
    Verified Purchase

    The cutting board and the ruler are great (at least in my beginner's eyes), but the cutting blade was totally dull. To cut through just 2 layers of flannel, I have to basically put the board on the floor, kneel there, and press down with most of the weight on the cutter. That's ridiculous. I don't know why they don't just include a working cutter in the first place; why sell kits with useless components? I called Amazon (since I couldn't find contact information here for the company) and they gave me a partial refund on the kit, so I'm ok with that, but better if they had just sold something that works. Now I just use the board and ruler to mark lines, and cut with my nice, sharp scissors.

    First off this was the best price ever. In stores it is nearly twice the amount. Second it is awesome. The rotary cutter is way better than the one I already had. It is nice and sharp and easy to use. The mat itself is perfect not just for fabric cutting purposes. I have also been using it with my exacto blade when cutting paper stencils. The size is perfect for my needs. It seems like it will hold up to the abuse I put it through. I even ironed something on it not thinking about it and it warped a little and has flattened back out. I really haven't used the straight edge yet. But it seems quality and has so far survived my chaotic workspace, three cats, and a 1 year old. So I am pretty sure it is good too. :)

    I design clothing and use this almost daily. I've had mine for over 3 years and it still works very well (I've gone through a lot of blades). There are several slits cut all the way through the mat now, but I have it next to another mat on my cutting table so I flipped it so the slits are near an outside edge of the table that doesn't see much use to try to get as much use out of it as possible before getting a new one. I tell people all the time that I probably would have picked a different field to get into if it weren't for rotary cutters. I absolutely hate how long it takes to cut all of the fabric for an outfit or bag with scissors, but these wonderful tools take a lot of the pain out of doing your own sewing.

    I really love this set. I was just starting out sewing a couple of months ago and this was one of the first items I purchased. I love the self-healing capabilities as well as the sharp blade that glides right through the fabric. I also love that it has a safety feature so that when it's put away I don't have to worry about my young children getting a hold of it and slicing open their fingers! This was really a great first cutting mat to get. I haven't done any really large projects yet (mostly just skirts and clothing for my daughter) and I know I've read reviews saying that they wished the mat was larger but really, this was perfect for me. If it were any larger I'm not sure I'd have the space to store it :). It's just the right size if you're mostly doing smaller projects or you're just a beginner like myself. I highly recommend it!

    This is a very nice cutting set. The blade is very sharp and I like the retractable blade cover. The Mat is thick and self-healing. The ruler/straight edge has many measurements on it. This is the first set like this I've had, and I find it works just fine for a hardly-ever-uses-the-sewing-machine, but when I do use it, i need a mat to cut and a rolling blade to cut with. I don't quilt or make clothes (well, I made some scrub pants for my husband), and I'm not a heavy user of the equipment. For my uses, it fits the bill. The size is just right. Perhaps as I use my sewing machine more, and become more confident with making clothes, I'll find drawbacks, etc. However, I can find none now and I think this is an awesome set.

    Excellent value! |
    Verified Purchase

    I got this today so I haven't used it yet but just from the quality of the mat, ruler, and rotary cutter, I can tell this is an excellent set. I ran the cutter down the mat just to see if it leaves marks, and it doesn't. You never know with the "self healing" mats if they actually are, and this one seems to hold true. The most important part of this review is the value for the money. I went to several local hobby stores looking for a set like this after seeing it here on Amazon. I was just price checking mostly, as I know Amazon usually has the best price but not always. In this case, this is an amazing steal of a deal for what you get. I found a set with a mat that was 12x12 at Hobby Lobby, a crappier brand too, for $49 and this mat is much bigger and much more useful for what I need for almost half that price, and it's Fiskars. I feel great about this purchase and I think this set is going to work perfectly for several years. Edit: I got the gray mat with the squares in the center. Some reviewers state they got a green/yellow mat, so I'm just clarifying what I received.

    good set for beginners on a budget |
    Verified Purchase

    This is a good rotary set for anyone starting out sewing, or if its not going to be used often. You cant beat the price. I used mine almost on a daily basis and multiples times each day. Fabric shifts under the ruler or on the mat, and the side of the mat i use the most has cut marks in it. Now that i am more familiar with cutting, though, i am getting a better(hopefully) and bigger nonslip mat (us art supply), nonslip ruler(omnigrip) and more ergonomic rotary cutter (olfa)

    Great starter set |

    I'm a novice sewer (or sewist, if you will), and wanted something to make my cuts straight and precise. This is a great set. The markings on the ruler and mat are so useful, and the cutter slices right through the fabric like a hot knife throug butter. I highly recommend this for any sewer, no matter their skill level or projects. I am not a quilter; I make mostly crafty items and some clothing, and this is so incredibly useful.

    Works Well |
    Verified Purchase

    Being new to sewing I was familiar only with scissors and ruler cutting. Looking for tips I ran across this layout board and rotary cutter. Wow, this simplifies cutting. Reviewers who complain about sharpness of the rotary cutting blade need to return or replace the blade. The one I received would cut off a finger. Thank Heavens for the neat blade cover. I like everything about this system. I will get used to the slickness and shifting of the guide. But, even with this problem it is much better than the old scissor and rulers I've been using.

    I don't have a huge space for cutting material. This is the perfect size set for working in a small area. I wish the ruler were lipped...that is my only complaint.

    Great set of tools |
    Verified Purchase

    This is the best deal I could find on the Internet. If these items were to be bought separately the cost would have been much higher. I initially saw it for $36.02 and waited until the price went down to $27.49. For a beginner quilter who has used scissors, tape measure and a T-square these are like wonder tools. They will make my life so much easier. I highly recommend. I only gave it four stars because the mat is not as self healing as I was hoping. So far I have used it on one project and I can see cut lines in the areas that I used most.

    Verified Purchase

    Purchased this awhile ago. Been using it almost daily and the cutting mat works great, the ruler works just fine for me, but the rotary cutter sucks! Its still work the money to get the entire set and use the rotary cutter as a secondary cutter for paper patterns, interfacing and such. But I would purchase the Olfa 45mm rotary cutter for $15 on Amazon and then use that with the mat and ruler and your set.

    It's very easy to use. I like the fact that it's big enough to work on small and big projects. The material is very durable. I like the ruler. The cutting blade is sharp enough. I haven't had to change it yet. I only wish the board had a stronger grip so it wouldn't slide. It doesn't slide too much but at times I wish it would stay put.

    Wonderful cutting mat, ruler, and rotary cutter. The mat laid flat and has a hole on a short edge for easy hanging storage. The ruler has the same as well. The ruler is 6.25 inches wide, which lines up with the 0.25 inch boarder that the mat has. The dots on the mat are 0.25 inch markings, which is really nice for long cuts. Rotary cutter is simple, works. I'm glad I chose this set for my sewing and paper crafts. I would definitely buy this again and highly suggest this set a as a must have for sewing, scrap booking, or crafting projects.

    Like buttah?! My rotary cutter must be drunk |
    0

    How the heck did this set get such high reviews? Like buttah? Our definitions must be wildly different. This rotary cutter is terrible. It can barely cut through one piece of fabric let alone multiple like some reviews claim. Perhaps the quality of the blade is no longer what it used to be but I'm very frustrated by the reviews. The ruler and cutting board deserve two thumbs up. Toss the rotary cutter.

    BUY. THIS. NOW. No regrets. Love this little set! The rotary cutter cuts fabric like butter - just goes through it so easily! I even cut vinyl with very little effort. Just so great! And it doesn't say it in the product description, but the mat is self-healing (that was something I was worried about).

    Eh... it works |
    Verified Purchase

    I've been sewing baby items for daughter, like, cloth diapers, bibs, and a shopping cart cover. I bought this to help me cut the fabric easier & faster; cutting multiple layers with a scissor hurts a lot so I figured this would make it easier. IT WORKS. BUT. Not that well. I would have to roll it over at least twice in order to cut the fabric, which is usually cotton. I've used it to cut a cereal box to use as a template and it worked ehh also. Still had to wroll 2 times over it. It works, but doesn't work as well as I've seen some use on YouTube (lol). Where they just roll it over once and it cuts it perfectly. This don't work like that. Cutting multiple layers be prepared to roll it over and over. I used it to cut 4 layers of fleece. It works but like mentioned I need to roll it over many times.

    Its compact but pretty useless in the long run ! |
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased this particular rotary cutter because I beginning a new hobby and did not want to spend much on "just a rotary cutter" .. BIG MISTAKE The fiskars blade was blunt and I had to go two - three times just to get 2 layers of fabric cut which ended up being uneven cuts with a lot of waste. I was so frustrated at the end of day 3 and decided to ask a friend who lent me her Gingher and needless to say it worked way better! As much as I would have like this quilting set to work for me I decided to return it and buy a Gingher instead. I went beyond making the 3 initial quilts I had planned and enjoy quilting :) My advice would be to test out a variety of rotary cutters if you can before you buy one. If you are serious about your hobby I would suggest you invest in something more worthwhile.

    it's just ok - personally I recommend a much larger mat |
    Verified Purchase

    This mat is OK for small quilting pieces. I do not recommend this mat for fashion sewing. I purchase replacement blades in a retail store when they go on sale for 40% off. The blades are kind of expensive so I recommend treating them with care. Always wipe them clean before you are done using them and put them back in the plastic container so they don't get dinged up. You can get larger mats in retail stores. I don't recommend ordering large mats because of the oversize shipping charges.

    Bought this item for a home made sewing project..... I've only taken a self development course based on sewing skirts, but through you tube and a patternmaking book, I'm able to complete larger projects..... Bought this item because I was told it's easier to cut fabric.... Well, I was a bit disappointed upon receiving my product because it looked completely different than what is advertised here. The mat I received is gray and the ruler and measurement markings look a bit different (in style).... However, it served it's purpose, but no matter how hard or what I angle I pressed, the rotary cutter seems to be sooooooo dull, that it left gaps in my cloth smt!! Lucky thing I was working with knits! Overall I like the combo of tools sold, but I don't see why on first time use the blade in the cutter should be so dull, even while ensuring it is fully extended!!

    As a new quilter, I needed to purchase these products to start cutting shapes for my quilt designs. The cutting mat works perfectly and the plastic ruler piece also helps for making straight cuts with the rotary tool. The rotary tool is also a lot sharper than I had initially expected - it cuts through every material the first time without any extra effort.

    Not very self healing |
    0

    For as much as I paid for this, I really expected it to last a lot longer. I made *one* jeans quilt (65x80 inches in final size) and the mat was ruined part-way through making it. When cutting heavy fabrics like denim you have to press hard for the rotary cutting tool to cut all the way through, even then you have to move it back and forth a few times to get it to cut all the way through. This destroys the mat in short order. There are deep grooves and chunks missing out of it now. I think this thing would be great for very lightweight material, but no matter what you're cutting you have to be careful not to press too hard or you'll ruin the mat. It's disappointing and not worth the high cost. I hope I can find a better cutting mat out there somewhere that will stand up to heavy pressing. Editing to add that I've been informed I need to change the blade more often to avoid damaging the mat. I guess even "self healing" has its limits.

    As a beginner at quilting, this is the perfect starter kit. The rotary blade cuts fabric like butter (6 layers with ease!). Clear wide ruler makes measuring easy and the mat is double-sided for double the fun. Only thing is that the product I received looked different that the one pictured. Mat is yellow/green and the rotary cutter didn't have the same handle. Not sure it that matters to you, but I was pleasantly surprised that my supplies are just as cute as my quilt!

    Good set, good price. |

    I've been strip piecing quilts for 20+ yrs, and needed a new ruler, preferably bigger than my old one. After seeing the prices they wanted for just a ruler, I started looking at kits, because I wanted some new blades, too, and my old mat was getting old, too. This was the best price for the set with a full size mat & large ruler I found. Pros: * Full sized mat. Plenty big enough to cut strips, and square up blocks. * Double sided mat. Both sides are marked with a ruled grid, so if one side gets messed up, you can just flip it. Great idea! * Easy to read mat. This is pastel yellow on one side, and bright green on the flip side. Both are easier to read than my old gray one. * Ruler is marked with inches in both directions, so you can square up your blocks with one ruler placement, no need to turn the ruler. * Cutter comes with the larger 45 mm blade, so it will cut deeper piles of fabrics. * Cutter is usable from either hand, so if you're a lefty, this is good for you. Cons: * Ruler is marked with very fine lines, and it's a bit tough to read because of it. * All ruler lines are the same, so it's hard to tell the inch lines, from the quarter inch lines. Would have been better with solid lines for the inches, dashed lines for the half, and dotted lines for the quarter inches, but this is thinly dashed lines for all. * I find this style cutter dangerous. My old cutter only exposes a single edge for cutting, but this has 3/4 of the blade exposed. You'll want to shut it, each time you put it down. * Cutter has a slide button to open and close the safety, which I find difficult to operate. Mine is a hard push and pull, so it makes me not want to close it, and this style wants to be closed when not in use - for safety. Overall, this is a good deal for a bundle. Separately, these things are quite pricey, so if you need all three, this is a good bundle, and if you just need 2 of the 3 pieces, it's still a pretty good deal, given the separate prices. I'd say the cutter is the least valuable, and I'll be using just the blade, as a replacement blade for my safety cutter - that I already own. If you're a lefty, tho, this is a good deal, since I've never seen a safety left handed cutter. The ruler is a nice big size, and having the lines going both ways is way better than my old ruler, with one way lines. Wish they were more clearly marked, but I'll get used to it, I'm sure. The mat is great. Good improvements in color, and dual sides markings is great. Neither of my old mats had that. This is a good deal for beginners, or old hands like me, just looking to get some new stuff.
