How long will the GO! Fabric Cutting Mats last?
GO! Cutting Mats can last for hundreds of cuts on both sides before needing to be replaced depending upon the shape you’re cutting. You can extend its life by rotating and flipping the fabric cutting mat and not cutting in the same place each time. Dies with extensive blades such as the GO! Rag dies will wear mats out more quickly. If you start to experience inconsistent cuts, it’s likely your fabric cutting cutting mat needs to be replaced. back to top
What comes with the Studio 2 Fabric Cutter?
The Studio Fabric Cutter comes fully assembled with one Studio Die Tray (406900) and one sheet of Giant Cutting Plastic (60005). Dies may be ordered separately or Studio 2 Starter Sets are available that include the Studio 2 Fabric Cutter and some of our most popular dies. back to top
Is the original Studio cutter still available?
No. As of 2/25/15, the original Studio cutter is no longer available. back to top
Can I convert the Studio cutter that I own to a Studio 2 cutter with a foldable base?
Yes! If you already own the original Studio, you won’t have to buy a new cutter. Simply order the new Studio 2 Conversion Kit (50451) and you’ll be able to easily transform your original Studio into one with a foldable base. back to top
Will my current library of Studio and GO! dies work with the Studio 2 cutter?
All Studio dies are compatible with the Studio 2 cutter. All GO! dies work with the Studio 2 cutter with a GO! Die Adapter, except for GO! Big dies. back to top
How long will the Studio cutting plastic and tray last?
Replacement needs will depend on usage. You can extend the cutting plastic’s life by using both sides of the plastic and not cutting in the same place each time. Fabric cutting dies with extensive blades such as the rag dies will wear out plastics more quickly. The tray will last longest if you cut with the dies placed to the outside edges instead of in the center of the tray. We recommend the tray be replaced at least once a year depending on usage. If you start to experience inconsistent cuts, it’s likely your plastic and/or tray needs to be replaced. back to top
How do I know which GO! dies are compatible with which GO! cutters?
Note: GO! Big dies are only compatible with the GO! Big cutter. To assist you in knowing which GO! dies are compatible with the GO!, GO! Baby and/or GO! Big cutters, you can simply check our GO! Fabric Cutting Die and Cutter Compatibility Chart.
In addition, each GO! die product page has a picture of the cutter(s) the die is compatible with.

What types of fabrics can you cut with the GO! and Studio Fabric Cutters?
You can cut all types of fabrics including cotton, batik, flannel, fleece, wool, and denim although the number of layers of each fabric you can cut is determined by its thickness and type. Always start with fewer layers and build up. back to top
How many layers of fabric can I cut at one time?
On the GO! Fabric Cutters, you can cut up to six layers of 100% cotton fabric at a time. On the Studio Fabric Cutter, you can cut up to ten layers. The number of layers you are able to cut with other types of fabric depends on the thickness and density of the fabric plus the intricacy of the die design. We recommend trying some test cuts to determine how many layers work best with each type of fabric and die combination. back to top
Can I cut other materials such as paper with AccuQuilt fabric cutting dies?
You can cut other materials as fusible web and small amounts of paper with AccuQuilt dies. We recommend keeping this practice to a minimum and that you treat your Studio and GO! Fabric Cutter dies like you would your fabric cutting scissors. back to top
Why are the shapes on the fabric cutting dies angled?
For ease of cutting, the shapes on the dies are angled slightly to keep the blades from running parallel through the roller. Think of it as a speed bump — you angle head on. back to top
Do I line my fabric to the die board or the blade?
AccuQuilt suggests that you line your fabric according to the shape on the fabric cutting die board, not the die board itself. If the blades on the dies are at an angle you should angle your fabric and just cover the blades. This will ensure the fabric grain is aligned with the shapes’ edges and helps to minimize fabric waste. back to top
