Rotary Cutting Machine and Bias Tape Maker Machine by Simplicity Update are HOT

I am thrilled with the response to Simplicity's Bias Tape Maker Machine and their latest release of Tips. The new tips are 1 1/4" single fold and Quilt Binding Tips are 2 1/4" and 2 1/2" double fold. I have sold out of the tips in two days and I have several that should arrive today or tomorrow.
Then the Rotary Cutting Machine sales have boomed too. I think because people are trying to make some great gifts for the holidays. The Rotary Cutting Machine makes cutting strips of fabric (paper too for that matter)3/8in to 2 3/4in a breeze. I tell everyone to remember the Rotary Cutting Machine is a pressure cutting tool. The pressure is what cuts the fabric or paper. This is excellent for making rugs, locker hooking, making strips for quilting and so many other fun projects.
Don't forget there is a White Table (see the acrylic table here....Simplicity has one that will be white) coming out for the Rotary Cutting Machine. It will measure 12 x 16. Stay tuned.....if you want your name on the waiting list please e-mail me at

Both items are IN STOCK NOW at I Have A Notion. Don't wait until December to start ordering for the Holidays because things go on back order and I won't be able to guarantee a delivery in time for the holidays.

Bias Tape Maker Machine and Rotary Cutting Machine By Simplicity Update

Somebody some day will change blogger so it is easier to move photos around. Until then, here they are.
The additional Tips for the Bias Tape Maker and Replacement Blades for the Rotary Cutting Machine that were promised out by Aug. 14 are not "available" to be shipped from the distributors. They are "in" but not "available."
What does this mean for those of you who are e-mailing me and questioning why they say they have them but we don't have them. That's just it....they have them....we don't. However, just as soon as I have will :)
I'll keep everyone updated. By the way, I know what the "official" word is on the websites and blogs....but I'm still no got...when me get :) I'll check with the MOB and see if they have any influence over supply and demand. I've seen movies where the MOB gets things done.

Rotary Cutting Machine by Simplicity Update and Alex Anderson

I hope everyone noticed who stopped by my blog yesterday. (No silly not Robert Redford) Alex Anderson left a comment for us/me and I thought that was so generous. This is the picture I took of her at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh earlier this year. Every time I saw her this is the great smile I was greeted with. She seems so genuine and real.....I just love that.

OK, on to the Rotary Cutting Machine by Simplicity:

Recently I received some feedback from an experienced Quilt Artist who purchased the Rotary Cutting Machine by Simplicity from me. She thinks the written directions are lacking. I only want satisfied customers so I attempted to give her all the information I had about the cutting machine. One of the things I noticed at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh was this acrylic table the Simplicity demonstrator was using. I remember asking who made it and she said "Dream World." You may be able to use your own sewing table too. I think having the support for the fabric may help quite a bit. Thought everyone would want to know that too!!!
Anyone withing driving distance to Hershey PA? The Quilt Odyssey is being held at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center from July 30th through Aug. 2nd. My girlfriends, Mary Jane, Eleanor, and Lois will be there without me. So very sad I know. (no, no...thanks for the Kleenex but I have a whole box right here) I know they will have lots of fun and I'm hoping for lots of phone calls to tell me every juicy detail.
I'm off to pick up my monkeys now. I have missed them terribly and I'm looking forward to their first fight (lying again) and huge kisses and hugs.

New Addition to the Family and More Information about the Bias Tape Maker Machine by Simplicity

I'd like to introduce the newest addition to my family: Drum Roll Please.....

Here she is....I've named her "Hot Stuff Harriet." Her birth mother was named Westinghouse. She may just be too hot to handle!!! I got her from the Salvation Army for a mere 3.00 adoption fee. I plugged her in and she got hot fast....and no steam!!! I'm thinking she will be great for pressing cottons. I've always wanted one like this and I'm thrilled I found her tonight. My grandma had one that she heated on the radiator and she had the water in a shaker bottle. I treasure those memories.

You know how I ended up at Salvation Army on a Wed night? my efficiency I filled in my calender for an entire year the dates of my quilt guild meetings and my needle guild meeting. Only problem is the needle arts guild meets on the third Wed and not the second. Oops....what is a woman to do when she knows the kids are being watched? You guessed it....go shopping.

I've gotten several e-mails asking questions about the Bias Tape Maker Machine and the Rotary Cutting Machine both by Simplicity. I'm waiting to hear from Simplicity about replacement blades for the Rotary Cutting Machine. The tips for the Bias Tape Maker are reportedly being released in Aug and will come in the following sizes: Flat Fold: 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, 1 1/4, and Quilt Binding tips will be 2 1/4 and 2 1/2. When the are in I will post that information and the prices.

Thank you for all the nice e-mails and comments. I'm so glad that people enjoy what I write. Many nights I just want to go to bed but I stay up and write my post because some gals say they read blogs with coffee in the morning. I used to spend a crazy amount of time reading it is much reduced because I'm writing one!!!
