    Try cutting a piece of printer paper with your machine if it true to size then it's your fabric that's stretching. If it's your fabric you need to starch starch starch and make sure you follow the grain of the fabric.

    Sometimes when a certain fabric refuses to play nice I'll layer it with paper. (die- fabric- paper- mat) then run it thru the machine . Works like a charm!

    Remember if it's too many layers your fabric will stretch too ...

    I have not had any problems...so far...with my Accuquilt Studio. I love it and find it to be very accurate.
