Why You Need a GO! Fabric Cutter


Cut Time. Quilt More.

The cutting part of the quilting process is laborious and time consuming. You work hard to get the perfect cut – carefully measuring each piece, and enduring hand, arm and back strain as you cut multiple shapes.

Your rotary cutter requires you to pay close attention to the blade and ruler while cutting. Any slips of either can cause inaccurate cuts and wasted fabric.

You wish you could get to the sewing part faster… It's Time to GO!
