Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
Why use the wheel knife over scissors? I have the wheel knife for detail cutting, but not large projects.
I like big hammocks - I cannot like.

Not big enough for a full length hammock, but this cutting table is great for your back (and legs). It frequently goes on sale for $60
On top of that I have a mat (do not use rotary cutter on this - it's not self-healing!): hmmmmm this looks like the one I have but it says it's OK for rotaries. I don't want to scratch it up, so will continue to put the ominipads underneath.
Here's the link to JoAnn's cutters, mats, rulers. I started with the cheaper Dritz & Fiskars cutters, but after going to an introductory quilting class upgraded to Olfa (and I found a Gingher boxed set in the clearance section).
If buying Omnigrid rulers, note that they have some that are called Omnigrip that have a non-slip backing. They do sell a roll of a clear "paper" that you can stick (like contact paper) to a regular ruler to make it non-slipping.
If you are right handed, you would run the cutter with your right hand and walk your fingers up the ruler as you progress - helps to keep the ruler from slipping as you cut.
If you are starting out with rotaries and pads, Wal-Mart usually has a kit at a good price. Also, JoAnn has an Olfa set that you can either get on sale, or use a coupon.
My JoAnns (in Miami) have sold out of their Fusion magazine, but it looks as if it's still available online. The blurb says it has six coupons, but I could have sworn there were eight...6 at 40% and 2 at 50%.
They will probably have another Spring edition. I buy one every time I go in as the coupons are usually valid for 6 months or so.
