Pre-Order Info

Pre-order items are not currently in stock.

Purchasing a pre-order item means you are reserving the fabric (or other item) by paying up-front before Trapunto receives the fabric from the supplier.

Pre-order listings have an expected arrival date, but it can change which is out of our control. We will update any changes as information becomes available.

When a pre-order arrives, orders will be cut and shipped immediately. Placing a pre-order promises you will get your fabric before anyone else.


If you place a pre-order with in-stock items, we will hold your order until the pre-order items arrive. 

If you would like the in-stock items to be shipped right away, instead of waiting for pre-orders to arrive, please place a separate order.

This item is a special order and will be brought in at your request.

Whether you:
• struggle with slipping when cutting,
• want more accurate cuts for all types of materials,
• would like a way to cut out patterns and templates without pins,
• or simply need cutting to be easier on your body.

Are You a Leftie?
We’ve designed a cutting system just for you!

Our Sew Magnetic™ Cutting System for Lefties includes a true left-handed mat and ruler, so you can measure and cut the right way for you!

What’s Included:
• 20in x 24in double-sided, 7-layer self-healing magnetic cutting mat
• 6-1/2in x 24in magnetic acrylic ruler
• 12 SewTites® Booster™ magnets

About the Mat

The mat is a 20in x 24in double-sided, 7-layer self-healing magnetic cutting mat – one side is dark grey with white lines, while the other is light grey with black lines.

Choose the side you feel will help you see things the best, depending upon the colour of your material – or, just for what'll look Insta-ready when you go to share your projects on social media!

We chose 20in x 24in as our initial mat size, because we've never understood why a full-fat quarter won't fit on any other similarly-sized mat – with ours, you can!

There are 1/2in numbers and lines for those quilters who cut most of their pieces on the 1/2in, of course, there are standard whole 1in numbers for all the other sewists and crafters who cut this way – and yes, there are 1/8in and 1/4in markings throughout the mat too.

About the Ruler

The magnetic ruler is a 6-1/2in x 24in acrylic ruler with turquoise and black imprints – the 1/2in numbers are in turquoise boxes, and the 1in numbers are in black boxes.

Additionally, there are 1/8in and 1/4in markings, as well as 30°, 45°, and 60° guides.

We designed it so you can use it right-side-up for whole-inch cuts, or flip it around 180° for work needing half-inch cuts.

The magnets in the ruler are strong enough that your project doesn't slip, and light enough that the ruler also easily shifts where you want it to – and we added bevelled edges on the short ends, so you can easily pick up and move the ruler.

With the Sew Magnetic ruler, you don’t have to push down very hard to hold everything in place – so it's a more ergonomic way to cut than ever before!

About the Boosters

If you're ever cutting very thick materials – pre-quilted pieces, foams, Cuddle, leather, cork, or other materials where the magnetic ruler isn't quite strong enough to hold, then that's where the included 12 cylindrical magnets – SewTites® Boosters™ – come into play.

They’re designed to snap onto the magnets in the ruler to strengthen its hold.

Now, you can easily cut all the materials – from thick to stretchy to slippery — without shifting or distorting.

You can also use the Boosters – or any other SewTites magnets – to hold down paper garment patterns, acrylic templates, and whatever else you can think of without pins.

We foresee folks using this for leather work, scrapbooking and collage work, blocking small knitted projects, and even as a tool for basting small quilted projects.

The final product may vary slightly from the photos and renderings shown.
