    Re: Redline Direct Sale

    Anitamae - I haven't had any problems with the mat. I have the large 26x38 and have no unhealed cuts. I've had the mat for 3 years.

    Sorry I can't offer a 100% guarantee because I don't know how much pressure you put on your blade or even what type blades you use. But I can say that I know a lot of people who have used them regularly and never heard of any problems from them.

    Thank you, very much!

    I love the fact that it doesn't warp. I've taken it on the road to Chicago several times and it's been left in a hot car several times with no ill effects. I've kept it in the shipping cardboard and it travels on its edge.


    This is the mat that the local Guild uses that is at every working gathering so it gets a lot of use with many different types of cutters. The only guidance they give is use only as much pressure as you need to cut the fabric ... you don't need to put a lot of pressure on the cutter.

    HTH

    Does the sale apply to everything on their website?

    Re: Redline Direct Sale

    Love my Martelli mat. I use it purple side up - I found it easier on the eyes than the yellow. Also was cuter in my room, since the room is yellow - love the purple. I have the large one, since my cutting table is a hollow core door on top of storage units. I got it when I went to Paducah last year - dh was willing to get the fun cutting table, but I "settled" for the large mat and cutter - which is what I wanted. He was impressed with the table, but I have lots of storage under my current table......

    I had been looking at the roundabout, but since it is not self healing, I will stick with my square spinny one that is Fiskars.

    Now that I know the roundabout isn't self-healing with any cutters, I'm not sure I'll bother replacing it. I have had my eye on the purple/yellow one, though. I will probably order that.

    If needed, you are able to replace the mat for the turntable. They sell all pieces to that separately.

    That purple/yellow mat is wonderful Cindy!! You will LOVE it! I have had mine for three years and after starting on the yellow side, I flipped it after a couple months because it was hard to see lighter fabrics and interfacings on that yellow. The purple side seems to work great for any color.

    On the Roundabout mat on the Martelli site, it says it is not the same grade as their other mats and is not self healing. Martelli cutter or not doesn't matter.

    oh thanks for posting about this. This is the mat that Cindy showed us at the retreat? I have been considering it, but I'll skip it since I don't use Martelli cutters or blades.

    FWIW - The round one is not self-healing. I have it and have only used the martelli cutter on it and I also have ridges on mine.
