But for now...
It's science fair season.
I have a mini experiment I stumbled into and now I'm looking to crowd source my quilty friends for the best rotary cutting glove.
Knock on wood! Many years, tons of quilts and things made, I haven't hurt myself with the rotary blade beyond a couple tiny nicks. I cringe every time I see a friend post about their severed finger tips and ER visits.
Beyond the catastrophic accidents, changing a blade is a little harrowing as well.
I have a whole process that involves paper towels and methods for sliding the stack of new blades apart without slicing my finger tips. You totally have to hold your breath the whole time. It's tense!
So, I did some searching for strong cut resistant gloves that also left me enough dexterity to change a blade. I was excited to find some that looked great and also have anti-slip grip. The gloves just arrived, and they sent the wrong size. Booo.
Then I decided to use one of them to conduct a little experiment.
