    Joined a day too late....

    So, after I slice a bit off my finger yesterday with the rotary cutter, THEN I start browsing around the forum and see some warnings about being careful while using a Dresden template ... :lol

    I actually didn't realize it might have anything to do with the angled shape of the template, just assumed I was being careless. Which, obviously, I was but now at least I understand how it happened.

    No stitches, just a big old bandage and some soreness today. Lesson learned!

    Ouch, that must have stung. Speedy healing so you can get back to the project.

      Get a turning mat if you can they really help when using templates. The fabric and templates move not your hand. A couple pricks and
      sticks still happen to the best.

        Sorry that happened to you. I am deathly afraid of slicing my fingers so I am super vigilant. And welcome to the forum from another Texan!

            I bought a Klutz glove to wear when using templates.

                  Welcome from Illinois. I have some of the gripper plastic you add to the the back of templates and the turning mat. Before I got the mat, I used a wooden lazy susan to place my mat on for turning. Worked very well.
