  1. I would love for Santa to leave this cutting mat in my stocking because my mat is old and rather warped. It would be nice to be able to cut on a flat surface for a change.

  2. OMG that is lovely! My mat is worn and I can’t cut properly on it, I really really need a new one Santa and I’ve been really good this year (honest) Thank you!

  3. My favorite color!! My current mat is all chewed up and no longer seems to be self- healing… This would be the most useful sewing gift for me!

  4. My unit that I have my cutting mat on top of is red!

    But also I have had my mat since September and already it’s been ruined by blunt blades so I could use another.

  5. This would be wonderful for my new daughter-in-law that is starting to show an interest in quilting! I already have the sewing basket wrapped!

  6. wow! ive never seen red! what a great sewing room color! my poor mat is beyond care…i even gave it a bath last weekend and its just so groovy!

  7. Hooray, this mat will match my decor better, and isn’t that a big part of what quilting is all about? 🙂 I will smile each time I cut away! Kristy

  8. Santa!! You know it matches my home decor. All beige and tans.. and then my pop color is red and burgundy! Ooooh it would look so nice in my newly acquired sewing room. I’d treat it so nice 🙂

  9. Oh my gosh, I have been wanting this cutting mat for so long!! In my favorite color-RED!!! My 11 year old mat needs replacing Santa:) It has permanent grooves in it that don’t heal anymore and it’s served me well.

  10. Dearest Santa, I really need this beautiful red cutting mat. I just repainted my sewing room in turquoise and it has red accents. Can’t tell you how beautiful it would look. Not to mention, my current cutting mat is so beyond help from many years of service.

  11. Dear Santa, this mat would be a welcome gift to my sewing room. My old green one is wearing out and this would be functional and oh, so cheery!!

  12. Oh, please oh please oh please!! I’m about to receive my first sewing machine for Christmas (yes, I know because my husband stinks at secret-keeping) and I have fabric just waiting to be made into a fabulous new quilt (with lots of help from my quilter of a Mom)…I haven’t purchased a cutting mat yet so I would LOVE to have this beauty to kick off my quilting fun.

  13. What a cheery mat…I just left my travel size mat somewhere. I travel with my husband. Santa, I could really use a new one. I promise I’ll take care of it.

  14. This would be awesome in my new studio (which we’ll be starting on in January — converting attached garage into a studio. I’m so looking forward to it!

  15. This would look lovely living in my aqua room with this splash of red..and the one I have is a bit tired and collecting a lot of fuzzies…thank you for the opportunity to win this red mat.

  16. My quilting and embroidery room is in desperate need of a make-over. It used to be our sons bedroom when he lived at home. It is so dark with beige and black. This lovely red mat would be the perfect inspiration to jump start a redesign of the room and decorate for ME! It is so nice to see a mat in such a lively color.

  17. Love the color! I have an 18×24 mat on my Christmas list as the first one I ever bought is ready to be retired. It has served well through many, many quilts.

  18. OOOOOHHHHH, I have never seen a mat like this one.

    I would love to have this bright red sewing mat in my stocking because it would really cheer up my dark sewing area

  19. WOW! My goal for the coming year is to get out of my comfortable quilting box and delve into new things, try new bold color combinations, tackle that feathered star. What a great daily reminder a brightly colored cutting mat would be as it sat in it’s place on my sewing table encouraging me to see things a new way.

  20. Awesome Color! Let’s see with Red my sewing room would be decked out for Valentine’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Verteran’s Day and Christmas! It would be much nicer using a Beautiful Red mat than trying to cut on the carpeted flooring. And Santa, I’ve been very very Good this year! 🙂

  21. The color is so wonderful. My cutting table is dark green and with the current green mat, it is sometimes hard to know where you are cutting and when to stop! The red would look great, save rotary blades and the top of the cutting table, too.

  22. I’ve been lusting after one of the 24 x 36 red cutting mats for awhile. It would looke so much better in my red & yellow sewing room than the green one.

  23. Dear Santa – I would love to have a new cutting mat for Christmas. This red one would be just perfect for me. I have tried really hard to be a good girl all year. Sometimes it has been difficult, but I think I did it. I will leave you milk and cookies on the table. Thank you very much Santa.

  24. Oh how pretty!! Santa knows RED is my favorite color and this will look great in my sewing room. Elan is the ONLY cutting mat brand I use! They are the best!!

  25. One of the main things Santa & I have in common, other than our holiday outfits being a bit tight, is our love of everything RED. A red cutting mat would be fabulous. Mý current mat is green & as a very wise amphibian once said ‘ít isn’t easy being green!’

  26. Looking at my worn mat and thinking I need a new one. The red would so much easier to see and brighten my sewing room.

    Would love to win one.

  27. Oh, Dear Santa!! Am in the process of setting up my new Sewing Room and need a new large cutting mat! How wonderful in red! I bet if I nick my fingers again with the cutter, the stain on the mat won’t show on this one! Now, if fingers were sust self-healing, too!! 😉

  28. I recently moved, and in getting my new sewing room put in order, I discovered that my olfa mat did not fare well and had to bid it a fond farewell. Projects that I enjoyed so much are now “back burnered” because they take so much longer without a mat. If Santa were to bring me a new mat this Christmas in my favorite color, RED!, I could joyfully return to my favorite creative outlet. Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

  29. This would be wonderful in my sewing room. I bought a very large cutting mat not realizing that I can’t turn it around when I need to so now I need a smaller one. This red one would be great and pretty too.

  30. MY poor green cutting mats are getting a bit beyond self heal, so this bright cheerful one would be a wonderful addition to my sewing room.

  31. Red would add so much to the design of my sewing space.It would just brighten up the whole room!! Plus the light from my smile seeing it in my stocking would be tremendous!!

  32. I have been teaching my friends at church to quilt and this mat would be great because some of my friends bought little tiny ones and I could share this one with them!

  33. I realized the other day that almost every quilt I make has a little red in it somewhere! So this red cutting mat would be perfect to add to my sewing room. Thanks for the chance!

  34. My old mat is warped in the corner from getting my iron too close to it one time. I’d LOVE to have a new mat to cut on. It would be a blessing to win. Thankyou for the opportunity. God bless! Merry Christmas!

  35. There are two reasons why I would like one of these.
    1: I would like a cutting mat downstairs, so I can do some cutting while children are asleep.
    2: my current mat is pretty scored.
    3: This one is bright red.

    Oh hang on that’s three reasons.

  36. How fun is that! I started adding pops of red to my craft room to add energy to the mostly pale blue and white decor. A red cutting mat would be such a fun and useful addition! Nice fresh change from my well used green mats. : ))

  37. So pretty! This is at the top of my list right now. It would be the best stocking stuffer! You’d cry if you could see the condition of my current cutting mat. I may shed some tears over a new one 🙂

  38. I would like this new cutting mat because the one I have is ugly and all “messed up” (my little 4 year old grandaughter told me this)

  39. Santa I really need one of these. My eyesight is not what it used to be and bright red will help me see the lines and put a big smile on my face. 🙂

  40. Well I love red…..in any shape or form. This mat would brighten my sewing room. I recently took over one of the bedrooms as my sewing room. This mat would be a perfect fit. Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous prize.

  41. I totally need a larger mat as I’m a new quilter and haven’t plunked down the cash for a large one yet.

    I wanted to get the Breast Cancer Awareness one (I’m a 2+ year survivor still in treatment) but I guess they were only available for a short time. I like to be different, and RED definitely is that – not green or yellow!

    It’d be so fun to make Christmas (and soon, Valentine’s Day) gifts using it – such inspiration!

  42. Love the RED!! very festive!! although I would love to win it looks like my chances are slim,so to whomever wins enjoy!! What a fun cutting mat how could anyone be sad while using this mat it will definitely chase away the winter blues!

  43. I’d love this cutting mat because:
    1) I need a new cutting mat – mine is a little small.
    2) I’m redoing my office/studio and this one is a perfect color for it 🙂

    Thanks for offering this giveaway!

  44. Two thirds of our children and grand children have moved back into our house. My dining room is now my sewing room. My green mat just looks horrible! It sticks out like a sore thumb. Red would be great! It would match my room perfectly! While I love my family, they have cramped my style. Please cheer me up!(-:

  45. Oh how I would LOVE to have this in my stocking for Christmas, it’s so cheerie looking and would help make me happy happy happy while I cut fabric. I’m so glad my friend Denise sent me to this blog. I signed up and have some catching up to do. I haven’t learned all about haveing these feeds sent to my email so I have quite a few to read through. I can see I missed a lot but I’ll have great fun!!

  46. My cutting mat is nearly a decade old and I would SWOON over a perky new red one!! It’s a big large to fit in my stocking, but surely I could sew a new stocking to fit! {{huggs}}

  47. Dear Santa, Please leave me a pretty red cutting mat in my stocking, and I promise to finish cleaning up and organizing my sewing studio so I can show it off to all my quilty friends!

  48. Holly Berry red would look so good in my sewing room! The mat I use now is a little warped, so this would be a perfect replacement, and more fun to use than green. Thanks.

  49. It would be nice to have a new matt that is so pretty. I have had the same mat for 8 years and it’s covered in duct tape so the fabric sticks to it when I use the iron (Funny I know).This is so pretty I love red. Happy Holidays to everyone.

  50. My green cutting mat has had a hard life. A red one would be the perfect replacement – functional and pretty! Thanks for the chance to win.

  51. Oh, Santa!!!! Please bring me a red cutting mat because 1) Red IS my color 2) Red is my FAVORITE color 3) Red is the theme of my SEWING room 4) RED is the color of CHRISTMAS 5) I *NEED* a red mat in my sewing room!! I just LOVE that mat! I have never seen a red one!!!

  52. Red!!! Oh my, red’s the perfect color for a cutting mat at Christmas. But, dear Santa, I’d use this mat all year long.

  53. I learned how to quilt because someone took the time to teach me. Now my daughter knows how to quilt and I hope it will pass down for each generation. I now invite anyone who is willing to learn into my home to learn to quilt. I share all my cutting tools, rulers, and sewing machine. I hope to make an impact on them the way my friend did with me. A new (very pretty) RED mat will be put to good use in my sewing room by these new quilters. Thank you for considering me as a new home for the mat. I know it will be used often.

  54. A new cutting mat would be awesome. Mine is getting so beaten up. I need to replace it. I’m not sure how old my cutting mat is but it has been with me a very long time. I would sure be happy with Santa if he brought this to me!

  55. All I want from Santa is a red cutting mat for my red & white sewing room. I love red and have from a good source that Santa does too. He must have them all at the North Pole because I have never seen them at my local quilt shops. My green one has seen better days for sure.

  56. I SO need a new cutting mat!!! Mine has all the fleece fuzzies all over it from cutting fleece blankets so I can crochet around them for Project Linus:)

  57. I love this red mat! It definitely needs to come to my home. I haven’t ever seen a red cutting mat so I feel that it is a necessity.

  58. Love love the red mat and it would be super for my eyes which are fading with old age,also re is my favorite color. I am a follower of your blog.

  59. Oh gosh, I’d love a pretty new red cutting mat since the one I’ve been using for the last ten years is dull gray and REALLY ratty!

  60. Oh, that is so bright and cheery! I think Santa should bring me that lovely red cutting mat to brighten up my black and white cutting/sewing area, don’t you?? 😎

  61. I am a follower. That cutting mat does look bright and cheery. I can’t remember when I bought my cutting mat! So guess it is time for another one.

  62. How did you know red is my favorite color? I really, really, really love the mat. It would give such a nice warm glow to my cutting table. If I don’t win it I will ask Santa♥♥♥

  63. I would love to have this mat because my “good” mat is getting worn, and the other mat I have, hubby decided to use it when he needed to hot glue something, so it is melted in spots and where the glue globs landed, there are pits. I only use it when I absolutely have to! 🙂

    Thanks!
    Sandy A

  64. I would love for Santa to bring me a brand new cuttung may, mine is well-loved and still functional, but a fresh new one would set the new year off on wonderful note! awolk at rogers dot com

  65. I LOVE the red!! What a great color to be under the tree. Maybe the DH & kids won’t realize it’s a new mat and it would stay nice, as my current one is trashed and has super glue on it???

  66. I would love for Santa to put one of these in my stocking ’cause my old one is very worn out. Poor old thing is missing the markings over most of it already.

  67. I would absolutely love Santa to sneak this under my tree! I currently have a very small cutting mat and could only imagine how much easier it would be to cut up my fabric on a bigger mat!

  68. This mat would be perfect for my stocking as red has always been my very most favorite color. It is so dashing and looks good with everything. My dull, gray mat is old and tired and it is time it was retired. Thanks!

  69. Is a cutting mat really a matter of NEED. But I WANT a pretty red cutting mat, or yes I do! Thank you for giving me this opportunity to beg. (sitting up with my paws out and looking pitiful)

  70. This is the THIRD time I’ve tried to post a comment to this blog to enter this give away. I have no idea if this never shows up why or what to do so it will show up. Why can’t you just put the comments/contest on Facebook where comments are easy to enter without all this extra stuff and it’s EASIER TO DO!

    I would really like to win this, RED would be great to see instead of green, I’m new to learning to quilt so it would be great to have a mat like this one!

  71. I am a follower & I reeeeeally need a new cutting mat – mine is sooooo cracked. I know it won’t fit in my stocking but if I win, it will be hard to miss it – love that red. Thanks for the chance & Merry Christmas.

  72. Elan mats are my favorite. Unfortunately there is nothing close to me to be able to replace my 8 year old one. Still going strong with the one I have, but would love a new one.

  73. I would love this new red cutting mat because I frequently host sewing bees for breast cancer prjects. Each time it is a new project and new recipient. We never have enough cutting mats because we never know how many people will join us to help and if they can’t sew we have them cut and iron! I would love this mat so that it can be shared by many many women to help others!

    Here is my latest project:

    Thanks Santa! I haven’t been good all year but most of it 😉
