    Care & Maintenance: Cutter For best results, always keep your Studio 2 fabric cutter clean and lint free. To clean the fabric 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: Some assembly is required when first setting up your Studio 2 Fabric Cutter.

    Care & Maintenance: Dies Use adhesive roller to clean lint and thread from dies. After each use, remove any threads imbedded between blades and foam. It's normal for threads to get caught where blades meet in a die. Remove with tweezers or die pick (55105). Die blades never need to be sharpened.

    Warranty: AccuQuilt Studio 2 Fabric Cutters have a three (3) year guarantee. If you experience any defects in material or workmanship, simply notify AccuQuilt and we will repair or replace the fabric cutter at no charge. All fabric 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.

      Love it without a question

      I have lost a lot of my strength and have a shaky hand. This is my miracle machine. I can still do the things I long to do. Thank you who ever invented this machine.

    • Keenen · 7/21/2015

      Love It!

      I am new to Accuquult, and I love this machine - it took me longer to set up the fabric for cutting then it did to cut 140 2" squares and it did a nice job. The minor problems I had cutting were due to user error, learning something new. My only complaint is when you buy the dies, they should come with a cutting mat. I can see how the mats will wear out, so they will need to be replaced eventually. It was frustrating to get a new die and not realize the mat was separate. Other then that, I am very happy with my purchase.

      It's a workhorse!

      I bought this back in June when they were on sale for $395 and I got some dies with it. I just bought a few more dies yesterday and took advantage of this sale. Yes, it's big. But it's a workhorse! I WANT a solid cutter, and this certainly met and exceeded all of my expectations. I went through bins of scraps in just a couple of hours. It EASILY cuts through 10 layers of cotton fabric just like butter. I would buy it all over again. After having it, I can't imagine NOT having it. Because of the size, I store it on a shelf and then put it on a separate folding table when I use it. If you have the room for it to stay out, great! But if you don't have a lot of room, a folding table works just fine.

      Love this cutter!

      I am a crafter instead of a quilter and this machine is a real time saver. I was impressed with the fact that I can order custom dies to go with it.

    • Wilma · 7/15/2015

      Love Love the Studio 2 Fabric Cutter

      This machine is so easy to operate, I just love it spend hours today cutting all my scraps that I have had stored for years, this is any quilter dream machine,

    • Tamara · 7/10/2015

      Fantastic investment!!

      WOW! This machine is one of a kind. A great time saver, phenomenal cutter for all those darling appliques to decorate projects with, all with 100% accuracy! This machine will out perform anything a person could [try!] and do, with scissors or rotary cutter. The hand crank works very smooth and easily. This is one investment you won\'t regret!
      (My original order came with a slight problem - customer service took care of it right away, to my satisfaction. Have bought more dies, and will continue to do so on into the future; the possibilities are endlessly fun with this machine!!)

    • PUTT PUTT · 7/5/2015

      Well worth the cost

      So much better than using the rotary cutter. Love it!!

    • LovesBigSwissDogs · 6/23/2015

      I am delighted I bought a Studio 2

      My best quilting buddy was correct -- just go on and go with a Studio cutter. I got the Studio 2 and I absolutely love it. Yes, it is heavy so be sure you have a spot all picked out to set it up. I am also glad I got a drop leaf craft table (got mine from Joannes\' fabric on sale) -- it is just right for a cutting center. Don\'t be afraid to spring for the big guy.... don\'t regret going with a smaller cutter. Just sayin! And... grab this big guy NOW while on sale..!

    • Kathleen · 6/14/2015

      I\'ve caught the quilting bug!

      I was having so much trouble cutting my fabric by hand that I nearly gave up quilting
      altogether. When I saw the Studio 2 I knew my problems were a thing of the past. With the Bread and Butter starter kit I now have tons of shapes and sizes to choose from. The arrangements for blocks is endless. It\'s so simple to use that I was cutting within minutes of unpacking my machine. The tips and tutorials are amazing too.

      Go Cutter

      I was surprised at how fast you could cut strips for binding and borders. I use mine all the time. I am going to order the Studio so I can cut 10\" squares.
