This is just a quick recommendation in relation to patchwork cutting mats.
I have been teaching and quilting for over 15 years now and this is the first time I have ever recommended a cutting mat! I have generally spent around £20/30 on a good quality self-healing mat - so when I saw this one on Amazon I couldn't believe the price of around £12 for an A2 mat. I ordered it and, believe it or not, it is fabulous! The A3 size is great too at around £6!
