How do you take something great and make it even better?
That’s the question the AccuQuilt team works with each and every day as we constantly work to make quilting and quilters' lives easier! From creating new and exciting dies to developing fun, new patterns and creating new ways to use our dies and fabric cutters, it’s all about inspiring quilters and improving how they cut.
While the new handle looks similar to the original version, the comparison really stops there. This new handle is easier to hold and grip for turning, making cutting more comfortable. The ergonomic design of this handle makes it possible to cut longer while avoiding more hand strain then ever before, but the news just keeps getting better.
Unlike some technology where you have to start over with a new machine to take advantage of new advancements, you can actually change the handle of your GO! Fabric Cutter with a new GO! Comfort Grip Handle Replacement Kit. It’s a quick and simple step that you can take to make your cutting experience more comfortable ever time.
Ready to Get Started?
GO! Comfort Grip Handle Replacement Kits are available at AccuQuilt.com and your local AccuQuilt retailer. There are two versions of the kits available for the two versions of the GO! Fabric Cutter. For the original cutter, the kit is item #55125C, and for the GO! Fabric Cutter with Smoother Rolling Action (2013 to present), you’ll want item #55617.
If you’re not sure which one you need, it’s simple to discover by popping the green AccuQuilt icon off the side of the handle. If the handle is attached by a screw, you have the original version. If your handle is held on with a nut, it’s the newer version. I remember this because it’s "Nut for New!"
From there, it’s simple! Here’s a video with Pam Heller, AccuQuilt’s Cutting Expert, showing you how to replace the original handle with the new GO! Comfort Grip Handle if you have purchased the GO! Fabric Cutter from 2013 onward. If you have a GO! Fabric Cutter that you purchased prior to 2013, check out this video.
Are You Ready to GO!?
Whether you’re already in love with the simple ease of quilting and crafting with the aid of your GO! Fabric Cutter, thinking about upgrading from a GO! Me or ready to get started with a GO! for the very first time, there’s never been a better – or more comfortable – time to GO!
It's important to note that at this time, the Ready. Set. GO! will come with the original handle attached and a new GO! Comfort Grip Handle Replacement Kit. GO! Fabric Cutters will now begin shipping with the new handle already installed. The new handle is not compatible with the GO! Baby or GO! Me Fabric Cutters.
