OLFA Celebrates the 35th Anniversary of the Rotary Cutter

Can you imagine what quilting was like without a rotary cutter? We can’t either.

In 1979, the first rotary cutter was created by Mr. Yoshio Okada. He would later found the company you know today, OLFA. They are celebrating the 35th anniversary of the innovation by collaborating with well-known designers and quilting bloggers to create a 35th Anniversary commemorative quilt.

Each quilt pro has been tasked with creating one block that will go into the commemorative quilt. The completed quilt will be on display at the OLFA brand’s booth at the International Quilt Market at Houston in October.

You can follow along with the fun and innovation of this celebration. Follow OFLA on Facebook at www.facebook.com/OlfaCutters or follow the hashtag #Olfa35 on Twitter.

OLFA is known for its precision cutting equipment. They also offer other great notions for quilters, such as their spinning cutting matLQNRM12S

Fons & Porter congratulates Olfa on their success and for creating innovations that have helped quilters world wide!

    I LOVE my rotating mat. It was perfect for trimming up my squares for my latest quilt. Made it so much easier!
