I recently purchased the True Cut sharpener from Grace Company. It works great, so far, I have only used it twice. It is quite loud in my opinion, so I got some ear plugs for next time. Easy to use, plugs in, so no batteries to worry about. I just thought there had to be a way!
There are mats that sharpen your blade while you cut. I don't have one.. they are more than I wanted to spend at the time for a mat. But I bet it would be worth it.
I too have never been able to make that sharpener work. I do keep the old ones in a small platic container, hoping one day I'll hear of something that will work.
I am so happy to belong to these groups. One can gain so much from others,you know the "learning the curve". Thanks so much for starting all these new groups, your a genius for doing so.

I bought the true cut sharpener from Grace Company recently, it came in Friday.. I'll be using it this coming week. I can't wait. Will let you all know.
Mickie, did you try it yet? I just might not be using it long enough, but put in a new blade, no comparison. The new blade cut like the fabric was butter. It might be a nic on the blade too.
Anyway, hope you like it.
you know I have not had time to use it yet.. I've been so busy with family things I haven't had a chance to cut or sew anything.. I'm so bummed lol
This is a good suggestion. I have two rotary cutters - one I bought and one my friend gave me - with this idea I can designate one for my crafts and the other for my sewing. Thanks for the reminder!!
