Olfa Endurance Blades and Traveling Mats

I am super excited to tell you about a fun giveaway I have for one of you lucky quilters out there! I imagine, like me, many of you have heard of the new Olfa 45mm Endurance blade that lasts up to 2x as long as a traditional blade. I have to say I have been super impressed with the Endurance blade I was sent. It cuts through fabric like butter, without being a runaway blade. It is so sharp, yet so easy to control.

I also was sent 2 folding mats. They’ve become my new go-to mats! The 17″ x 24″ is the perfect size for breaking down fat quarters, which I’ve been doing a lot of. I have been in the really, really bad habit of doing all of my cutting on the floor (yes, the floor…… I know how bad it is…..) so these smaller mats have made it so much easier to cut on the table like a real quilter. 😉 The 12″ x 17″ is going to be a great retreat or travel mat! I was always curious what the backs of these travel mats look like so I thought I’d share a photo:

The center strip is flexible and bends, while the foam provides a nice non-slick effect.

Olfa is also doing a super fun contest for a chance to win a quilting cruise for 2 on their website! You can enter daily so jump on that if you’d like a cruise for free!!!

Olfa has generously offered a fun giveaway for one lucky US resident and blog reader. The winner will receive:

1 45mm Olfa Endurance blade, 1 45mm Olfa Splash rotary cutter in purple, and 1 12″ x 17″ folding cutting mat.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment telling me when the last time is you changed your rotary blade. I never change mine as regularly as I should, I am embarrassed to admit. Are you diligent in changing yours or do you follow my ways? (I do have to moderate comments, so don’t worry if it doesn’t show up immediately.) GIVEAWAY to US residents only and will end on Friday, June 9. Good luck!!


GIVEAWAY CLOSED! Congrats to Kathy who has been emailed. Thanks to all for entering! I see I’m not alone in waiting as long as humanly possible to change my rotary blade. 🙂
