Anyone at all interested should sign up for the Accuquilt text message alerts. Every day they have a different special, valid for just that day. Right now the sales are incredible!

Before this I was thinking that I need to purchase all of the cubes, but that is too pricey for me.
I would be interested in seeing that seminar, was it on the Accuquilt web site?

Dee, look on the Accuquilt website under “Events”. They are virtual at this time, though sponsored by different quilt stores all across the country. You can sign up and attend any of them. The one named something g like “Grid System” is very useful for figuring out how to deconstruct a quilt pattern to fit the dies, but really they are all good. I have watched a few of the twice! They are not recorded though, so you have to be available during the day.

The accuquilt site has so much to offer it is amazing. When you go there it is worth the time to check out everything there choose a pull down menu and check out what is being offered. Don't just stop at sales or dies. I spend a great deal of time designing quilt block and tops putting in fabrics and colors. It is amazing what there is to offer.

I took a quilting class and when everyone was breezing through their cuts, I wanted to cry I was so darn bad at it. The Accuquilt system seemed perfect. I worry less about waste and will gladly waste a bit for accuracy.

I started with a Go ME for $50 on clearance. That got me hooked! Bought a used Go online and never looked back. Went to a thrift shop and hit the absolute jackpot - they had all the strip cutters except the 4" one for $20 each, plus the mats in really good condition. The owl die came with the Go ME. Since then, got the owl accessories, the nautical one, the crazy petals, log cabin, bear's paw, hunter's star, four of the Ricky Tims dies...I just love the intricate dies since they would be so hard to cut by hand.

The Accuquilt sales are excellent and I can find good deals used as well. The Tims dies and the 6" cube I bought were used and I paid a fraction of the price I would pay new. I REALLY want the cherry blossom die so keep an eye out for me y'all.

If there is a die to cut the shape for a quilt pattern I want to make I buy it. To me it is part of the quilt cost like thread and batting. My Go is almost about to fall apart. I bought it in 2006. It has been used by grands to cut about anything that will cut and my husband has put new bearing in it twice.
