A New Way To Cut Your Quilting Threads

 Quilters love to chain piece when ever possible.
But cutting all those little links of threads
can sometimes be a bother.
Recently Tracy shared with me this great little tip:
Instead of using scissors, she keeps a 
right by her machine
to quickly snip those threads.
Normally these handy little gadgets are used to 
cut wrapping paper
or to
open envelopes.
They can even curl ribbon.
 But, the Cutter can also double as a quilting notion.
With a quick little flick
those threads are cut.
 Because the cutting blade is not exposed
you don't  have to worry about safety.
 Gift Wrap Cutters are priced for around $4
and can be found in most grocery stores
or places like Walmart
and can also be ordered from

that one is a good idea - there are so many things on the market that are not intended for sewing but work perfectly -- and are inexpensive!!

I actually have one of those stored away with my gift wrapping items. I never remember to use it. Guess what is going to find a new home by my sewing machine?! Thanks for the tip!

Hi Nedra! When I was at Walmart on Saturday after guild, they had these cutters on sale for $1.00! So I picked one up for you. (And a couple more for me!) I'll bring it to the show on the 29th.
