  63. I want this book more than almost anything else. I need to learn how to do this because I think this I could do sitting down and not have to stand a cut with a rotary cutter. I know some people can sit and use the rotary cutter but I can't even use it right standing so what chance do I have sitting? None that's how much. Thank you for the opportunity to win this.
