Default Accuquilt came with a bonus

Today I received my Accuquilt along with the surprising bonus of nearly 13 yards of bubble wrap. And a large garbage bag full of packing peanuts. Wow. Just wow.

Congats on the new arrival. You will have fun! You can recycle those items at a local shipping store.

I too just purchased an Accuquilt GO and I am having a great time experimenting... so exciting.

I buy bubble wrap in the big rolls at Walmart. My young grands love to play and stomp on it. I don't like the new kind that shares air channels, it's not fun at all! LOL

Funny! Like the time I ordered one pack of needles from Amazon and it arrived in a bubble lined envelope the size of a file folder.....seemed like such a waste!

I bet your cutter arrived flawlessly. Recycle the packaging materials and enjoy your your cutter.

What is your first project? Don't forget to make an account and list the dies. There are also free patterns on the AC site. The free ones keep changing so if you are interested-get them.

Have fun!

I always keep the bubble wrap, but the peanuts can't be recycled where I live, and I hate throwing them away in a land fill. What am I to do with peanuts??

So happy for you on your new Accuquilt! I love mine. It's fun to use.
I use a lot of bubble wrap because I sell on Ebay and it can be pricey. I recycle and rarely have to buy it.

a lot of the peanuts are made from biodegradable materials like corn. You can probably feel the difference.
