    It's been around for years. There are lots of online videos how to use it.

    I heard a couple of people talking about this Alto system. They've had theirs for years but never use them.

    I have the older Alto cutting system. It isn't worth the price. It is merely a cutting board and a clamping system to hold your fabric while you use your rotary cutter.

    If I was younger I would buy one of these. They are great. My young friends have them, and they sure use it.

    Would you be interested in sell yours? This one is cheaper than the new smaller one that is out now. I have wanted this one ever since I seen it.
    Anyone have one that they would like to sell??
    Contact me please,
    Thanxs

    I saw this demonstrated at a quilt show & it looked great. Didn't buy. Since I don't have a quilting room, don't have any place really to set it up.

    I just purchased one and absoultely love it. Makes cutting quilts really fast and accurate. I am even willing to cut for others now for a small fee. You will not be unhappy if you decide to purchase it.

    I agree with the others I have one and there are times I would rather use the green cutting mats. For the money you can buy alot of fabric.
