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 2 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.

    Best Purchase

    I had wanted this package for over two years, but couldn't work it into my budget. Recently it was on sale, so I purchased the set. It is wonderful! I cut a lot of irregular scraps. It allows me to cut in just a few minutes what it would have taken hours to cut with a rotary cutter.

  • nancy · 1/7/2017

    LOVE IT.

  • Jims wife · 1/28/2016

    love it and him too

    got my studio 2 as a gift from my husband and its great i truly think he wanted to get rid of my because now he never sees me unless he comes looking for me i do have a request they should include a crock pot with the bread and butter starter set because husbands like to eat and he would never bother me as long as he has food it really is a lot of fun and so easy i wish i had not waited so long to drop hints

  • Janet · 10/14/2015

    So easy to use

    I love, love, love my studio 2 cutter. There was no putting together. I lift it out of box and started using. The worse part was getting the film off the cutting sheets. Would recommend this to anyone who quilts.

  • suzette · 9/27/2015

    Wonderful product

    This cutter is amazing. When you buy the bundle on ssle, it becomes much more affordable. I have been amazed at how quickly and cleanly it cuts multiple layers of fabric. The only thing I would have liked in the package would have been more of the plastic cutting sheets, as I see how quickly you might have to replace them if you cut alot. Would highly recommend!

  • kathy · 5/24/2015

    Great unit

    Great time saver and fun projects

    Studio 2 Bread & Butter Starter set

    I was very disappointed to find out after the fact that they no longer honor there Lifetime Warranty on this product as that was one of the main reasons for my purchase. It was still posted on the website at the time of purchase, & now I see you have taken it down.I would of sent it back but I can not afford the postage . I havn't had a chance to use it as we are redoing my sewing/quilt room.

    Studio Cutter

    I just received my studio bread and butter cutter set. I love it, however, I would like to point out that the edges are very sharp. I sliced my thumb open putting it together. My husband, who was assisting me, almost cut his hand as well. I would suggest rounding off the edges when manufacturing. Wish I had waited too as it is now much cheaper. I received it on Monday night of this week and it is now 1300+ instead of 1500+.
