We can go through rotary cutting blades quickly, but it's hard to throw them out. I have a box filled with old blades.  This new BladeSaver is a perfect way to give them a second life as a threadcutter. 

The  Convertible Free Motion Quilting Foot Set is an excellent foot for free motion quilting. This set of low shank feet with attachments has everything you need.  This foot is made to glide smoothly over your quilt top or other project and the easy to adjust thumb screw allows the foot to be easily raised or lowered. This foot set comes with a ruler foot, open toe, closed toe, and echo quilting guide for a variety of FMQ techniques and visibility. The spring loaded height adjustment allows for slight upward movement of the foot should it hit an excessively bulky area or seam.
