Sharpening Rotary Blades

We quilters go through a lot of rotary blades. Imagine the number we use per year and multiply it by the number of years we’ve been quilting. Does that number surprise you?

Because we don’t wish to waste our blades and add to landfills, many of us buy rotary blade sharpeners. They do restore our blades to a degree, but not necessarily to our satisfaction.

Now, we have a better, handy alternative. We can send them to George Kutcher who has professional training in rotary blade sharpening. He sharpens and makes them like new again.

At this time, George charges only $1.50 per blade plus a return shipping fee of $2.00.
He sharpens all sizes:  45mm, 60mm and 65mm blades.
They will be as sharp, if not sharper, than the original blade but at just a fraction of the cost.

Shipping Directions:

  • Keep the packages less than ¾”.
  • For safety reasons, use the  plastic containers (they are less than ¾”).
  • Tape them onto a piece of thin cardboard stock (cereal box cardboard) and place them in an envelope.
  • Be sure to include your return address inside and on the package.

Contact George for safe mailing directions (remember how sharp they are) and for his address.

  1. Faith – I am so sorry to learn of this! I had a pack of blades almost ready to send him. His services will be sorely missed.
    Thank you very much for letting us know.

  2. I called George and he no longer sharpens rotary blades.
