I have one I got for an excellent price and love it! Unless you want to shell out some cash, sign up for their redline special emails and wait till they have their next 50% off sale.

I bought it during Martellis last Red Line Sale for 50% off! I like it a whole lot better than the square ones!

I have one and have no doubt you will love it. If you sign up for their redline newsletter they also periodically send out 25% off coupon codes. Since they just had the big 50% almost everything sale I'm not sure when the next 50% off sale will be offered.

Just curious-why do you prefer the round to the square mats?

This particular round mat spins as smooth as butter. Spinning means you do not need to move your fabric around for cutting. This was a LIFESAVER when I was making a hexagon I Spy quilt. I've had other rotating mats and they were horrible because they kept wobbling off their spinning mechanism. On the other mats I'd have to place my blocks in the very center of the mat and push down with quite a bit of force while cutting to prevent mayhem. Totally not worth it.

I got an email saying another redline special was coming up shortly. Don't think it gave specific date. Keep your eyes open.
