In order to protect my surface and the Sew Ribbon blade what type of mat can I use for the Sew Ribbon. Does Sew Ribon sell a special mat?

The blade will not hit your surface when you're punching the slots for the ribbon., so you do not need a special mat for this tool. If you're using the Sew Easy handle and heads, you will need the Piercing Mat. Hope this helps!
