Lay die flat inside tray with FOAM SIDE UP. Layer die, fabric and cutting plastic. For most accurate cuts, place
fabric on the lengthwise grain.
To conserve fabric, cover only shape to be cut, not entire die board.

Push tray, die, fabric and plastic firmly against roller.
Turn handle
in direction you want die to
go. Roll through cutter.

 

Remove cutting plastic and
perfectly cut shapes. Occasionally,
threads may need to be snipped
where cutting blades meet
on the die. Repeat process
from opposite direction.

 


Storage: Store Studio dies in AccuQuilt die storage cases or storage racks.

Die Tips:

  • With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.
  • Use cutting plastic that matches size of each die.
  • For best results, cut with die blades running under roller at an angle. Do not cut with blades parallel to roller.
  • Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle. Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board.
  • Some dies feature specially designed corners to aid in alignment and pre-cutting.
  • For fast applique, apply fusible web to fabrics, then cut shapes with dies.
  • Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch.
  • It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.

Care & Maintenance: Cutter For best results, always keep your Studio 2 cutter clean and lint free. To clean the cutter inside and out, use a soft dry cloth. Avoid abrasives, solvents and spray cleaners. If necessary, wipe with a damp cloth, then polish with a dry cloth. Use canned air to clear lint from roller area. The steel roller never needs replacing and withstands years of die cutting use. Please note:

Care & Maintenance: Dies Use adhesive roller to clean lint and thread from dies. After each use, with the die pick provided with the cutter, remove any threads embedded between blades and foam. It's normal for threads to get caught where blades meet in a die. Remove with tweezers or die pick. Die blades never need to be sharpened.

Warranty: AccuQuilt Studio Fabric Cutters have a three year guarantee. If you experience any defects in material or workmanship, simply notify AccuQuilt and we will repair or replace the cutter at no charge. All cutter die trays and cutting plastic are consumable parts and are not covered by the warranty. Replace trays annually depending on use. All Studio dies are guaranteed for one year.

    WOW!

    I've known for a long time I wanted a die cutter. They all seemed so expensive and I felt I needed to research some more. I waited until I felt the price was right. I knew I wanted one, but when that giant cutter was delivered, I felt a little intimidated. I watched multiple videos and when I finally broke down and decided to dive into the scrap bin. Wow, just wow. It is so easy and I am thrilled with how quickly I can cut multiple items. My husband is thrilled that he doesn't have to listen to me whine about how sore my back is or my arms from leaning over and cutting. Thank you for making my quilting therapy sessions much easier & happier!

    Love the machine, hate the price I paid! Looks like a great deal now!

    I love the machine, but not the changing price of it. On the President's Day sale, I purchased this product for $736. Later I saw it for over $900. Now, it's $536. I feel I have so overpaid for this machine. Don't know if this will go any lower, but looks like a great deal for the moment!!

  • sabrina · 1/1/2017

    Great deal

    This is ideal set to have. I just love the strip cutter!

  • Janice · 12/9/2016

    I am in Love!

    I really had gotten to where I wasn't enjoying quilting as much because cutting with the mat and rotary cutter were taking to long and not as precise. This cutter has made me enjoy quilting again. It's fast, fun, and makes perfect quilts.

  • Joyce · 8/26/2016

    Love it So Fast

    I got my cutter on Tuesday and within minutes I had cut some fabric. There is no set up. Open it and away you go. I was glad I got the studio it is very easy to crank. Put the material in one way and send it back the other. The die cuts are very heavy duty. The alignment of my fabric on the straight of grain was not a problem. I had very little waste. I was totally surprised. Today I just cut out 352 triangles in two hours. Perfect triangles no fudges. I am slow and meticulous, but I didn't get tired either. The fabric did not slide or move while pushing through the rollers. t was just too easy. I love the Studio 2 fabric cutter. I am so glad I got this starter set as I am ready to make some fancy quilts and cut the sashing also. I was very please it came with the 72 block pictures and guide that is similar to the cube. This is so heavy duty I doubt it will ever break. The dies as well.

  • Sabrina · 10/6/2015

    Great product

    I love, love, love my studio. I cut out a whole quilt in less than 30 minutes!

  • Cindy · 4/18/2015

    Great!

    So simple to use I can cut out a whole quilt and start sewing it together that same day love my studio fabric cutter

  • Patricia · 1/26/2015

    So easy!

    The first thing I did was stack nine layers of fabric to see if the Studio could REALLY cut through them all. I wasn't even sure that I was doing it correctly since the handle turned so effortlessly. But sure enough, all nine layers cut through like butter! I will actually enjoy the process of cutting my fabric now - the part of quilt making I used to dread!

  • Diana · 1/2/2015

    What a great invention.

    I love my studio best sellers starter set. I have had it for 2 days and have found more uses for it with quilting than I thought there would be. It is an amazing product and works very well.
