Does an AccuQuilt Cutter Really Save You Time?
The answer is yes, without a doubt! There are many ways that using an AccuQuilt fabric cutter makes your life easier, and most importantly, saves you time.
As any quilter knows, the cutting part of the quilt making process is the most time-consuming part. Not only does it involve careful measuring (and re-measuring if you really want it right), but each piece is traditionally cut by hand with either scissors or a rotary tool.
Problems with Scissors and Rotary Tools
While after years of experience, you may get good at cutting quickly using these old methods, scissors are not very efficient and can leave you with tired, sore, blistered and overworked hands. A rotary cutter requires you to pay close attention to both the blade and ruler while cutting. If one or the other slips you’ll see inaccurate cuts, which means you’re wasting fabric. Plus, even with a rotary cutter your hand can still get sore and tired.
AccuQuilt to the Rescue – Better Cuts Make Better Quilts
AccuQuilt’s fabric die cutters change all of this. With an AccuQuilt cutter you can reduce your cutting time by up to 90%, all the while saving your hands (and sanity). You’ll also get perfect cuts every time. Yes, really.
