    I don't but from what I've read on here most people that spent the money on it wish they hadn't. So far, I haven't read where anyone liked them. You are talking about that strip cutter thing right? That's what I'm talking about.

    I personally like the June Taylor shape cutters. I can cut strips all day long and accurately.

    I have one and I hate it. Quite a few others that have posted here hate it also. There were a couple of folks that liked it but not very many. I believe they invested in the table that was made for it. For my money--don't buy it--I wish I hadn't. It's not accurate enough and doesn't cut all the way through.

    Oh boy. I'm glad you asked that question. I was thinking about asking for this for my b'day. Don't think I will after the response.

    Ask for a June Taylor Shape Cutter. It's easy and accurate and cheaper!

    How easy? I'm technologically challenged.

    It is a plastic "mat" with slits cut in it at regular intervals. All you do is line up a line on the bottom and run your rotary cutter along the slits. See link.

    I also have the Simplicity Rotary Cutting machine and I never use it.
    I don't like it at all. It is difficult to keep the fabric straight, the "blade" cuts with pressure and sometimes wouldn't cut all the way through and you can't re-cut a piece to fix that as it would never line up the same. Overall, it is not a very good product.

    I do have the Simplicity Bias Tape Maker and I use that with a lot of success to make (or rather, fold and press) binding.

    I bought one thinking that some of the ladies in my church group could use it to cut strips. I tried it and took it back the next day. Being experienced, I could barely cut a straight strip. There was no way the novices in the group could ever use it.
