H as anyone bought or used the accullquils die? I am new to this and would like to hear from other quilters. I live in Texas.I am very interested in the die cutters.
Hi, I have a accuquilt cutter and they are the best thing since slice bread. Your cuts are all straight and no wonky going on and great on applique. I live in Canada and belong to a quilt group and most of us have on and you and cut out in no time, that gives you more time at the Fabric stores.
I also have the accuquilt go it is wonderful but watch for deals on the dies on e bay. I pay about 1/2 what they charge!
I have had one for about 2 years and have only used it periodically. Most of my quilting is QOM or kits and I am so afraid that I won't have enough fabric. I think they do waste fabric especially for the applique pieces. I watched a lot of tutorials (look on their site) and I can't wait to do something. They just put a policy into effect where a retailer of their product must charge what the company charges. I bought all my dies on sale, but you have to watch all the sites carefully. When there is a sale, the prices are the same as they are at Accuquilt now. Their sales are only about $10 off. It is a savings, but not the same as it used to be. I hate to tell you what I paid for my Cutter--it was so cheap where I purchased it that I couldn't turn it down. I think dies are very expensive. I have had bad luck with everything I purchased on e-bay and won't buy there again. What I mean by that is that they said the mdse. was new and it was used and only lasted a short time. Please don't get me wrong, I really am not a complainer. This pricing thing just makes me mad.
