    Does anyone have the Alto Cutter and if so how do you like it? Thinking of getting one and was interested to see how you like or dislike.

    I have one and use it alot for cutting multiple squares and triangles. It works great when you have a lot to do and you need them to be accurate.
    Bought mine at a quilting show about 7 years ago and all my quilting buddies have one too.

    I asked about this a little while ago...I was wondering if this actually worked. It sounds like it would be nice to have, espessily since I can't rotary cut to save my life.

    I would love to have this too. But for now it is just on my wish list. I looked at the price. It costs around $200.00. Like I said it is just a wish for now.

    My husband bought me one years ago at a Woodworking show and I love it. I use it all the time. Go for it!

    Don't know about this but I got a Fiskars ruler and rotary cutter combo for Christmas and I love it. It has the built in cutter along the side and it slides so easy when you push down on it. I am not good with the single cutter so this helped me alot. Got it as Walmart. :)

    I love my Alto Cutter. I bought it at a sewing expo about 4-5 years ago and have used it as my sole cutting surface when I am at home. I get much more accurate cuts with it than with just a mat, rotary cutter, and ruler. It is so easy to use. I found a microwave cart at a local thrift store for $20 last summer and it works perfectly for it. The Alto just fits on top and there is lots of storage below. I thought I would enclose a photo in case you are interested. Because it is on wheels, I can wheel it anywhere in the house as needed. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :XD: :mrgreen: :D :D I highly recommend it!
