Welcome to Tips and Tutorials Tuesday! I hope you’ll stay awhile, check out our tip for the day, and then scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the tips linked below by some of the best bloggers in our industry.
Last week, I posted about my tip for safely storing old rotary blades. Thank you for your awesome comments and suggestions for all the other wonderful ways to do this.
This week, I want to highlight one of the comments I received, made by Annette. She recycles her rotary blades at LP Sharp Company! I love this idea, because I HATE throwing anything away in a landfill that can be recycled. Thank you so much, Annette for sharing this valuable information with us.
If you keep your old blades, you can put them back in the little flat container they came in (unmarked and not taped closed) and mail them in a bubble envelope to LP Sharp for recycling. By doing this, you’ll receive a hefty discount on new blade purchases!
You can also order your blades from LP Sharp online with Paypal, or send an order with cash, check or money order.

The turnaround time is about 2 weeks. I will definitely be giving the generic blades a try, and I’ll let you know how it goes.
I called LP Sharp and asked if they ship internationally. I have a few Australian friends who currently pay exorbitant prices for their blades, and might find this deal very appealing.
At this time, they only ship to the US and Canada. But if you are an Aussie or Kiwi and are interested, please let me know and I’ll get in touch with them again for you to confirm your interest in their program.
Last week, one of our link ups was by Myra from Busy Hands Quilts, and she is hosting a fantastic quilt-along for the Gravity quilt by Jaybird Quilts. This month, they recently began building Block 1, so it’s the perfect time to join in if you’re looking for a new project!
