      Hi Jan. Most quilt stores offer a variety of rulers. Look for one that has a raised edge along the cutting side.

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

    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!

    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!
