    OMG! I did the exact same thing!! Cut off a little chunk of my finger tip - twice!! On the same finger! Luckily no stitches were required, but I learned my lesson the hard way! I’ll have to get one of those rulers with the finger guard. Nice to know it exists!

    ZJ, this is an excellent video. Thank you for telling us your cut fingertip story. You can NEVER be too careful around blades. Also thanks for telling us about the brilliant Fingerguard Ruler!

    Good reminders, and since I'm such a klutz, I especially liked your mantra "safety first, safety last, safety always". Thanks, ZJ!

    I enjoyed your comments on safety in the sewing room. I also love your jacket.

    Where can I find the quilting ruler in the video that protects your fingers?
