cut multiple layers. Check
orientation of fabric for cutting
non-symmetrical shapes. Place

go. If needed, continue pushing
until roller grabs die. Roll die
and tray through cutter.

fabric. 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.
Care & Maintenance: Cutter For best results, always keep your Studio 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: Some assembly is required when first setting up your Studio Fabric Cutter.
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 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. 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.
This set is a life saver for helping me get my quilt cut out and ready to sew.

I decided to order this after doing a lot of research as a surprise for my sister. I can say one thing for sure is that she loves it and in fact she can't stop to take a break and she made a quality piece for me as her first project and it is absolutely stunning

I have always been hesitant with the rotary cutter... ruler slipping, the rotary blade not cutting all the way through the layers of fabric, or cutting deep into the self-healing mat that didn't seem so self-healing. So when I first saw the Accuquilt cutting system at Paducah, I was very impressed. Like some, I viewed the website for quite a while before taking the plunge. I'm so glad I did and I shouldn't have waited. I just finished my first quilt top and it only took 20 minutes to cut out 144 blocks, not to mention the ease of putting it together. I LOVE this cutting system!! It is simply AMAZING!!

I'm very pleased with the Bread and Butter set. It contains a useful assortment of dies that can be combined to create a multitude of quilt blocks plus the strip dies. The multiple die packs are a time saver, too. Originally, I purchased this to cut my own stash into usable shapes to speed up the quilt design process then I decided to use it to cut out quilt kits for our guild donation quilts. I had four kits cut in a fraction of the time I previous cut kits with a rotary cutter. It took longer for me to select the fabrics than to cut the kits.

My husband bought this for me for Christmas. It REALLY speeds things up. I make Quilts of Valor and have finished three in the last month since I received this.

I've been quilting for 20 years and can't believe it took me this long to move into a cutting system. Love the accuracy this system provides. My 75 year old mother can cut accurate pieces even with her arthritis.

I originally started with the Go! as I didn't think that I would enjoy die-cutting as much as I do. When the adapters came out for the Studio I knew that I wouldn't be wasting any dies so I got the Bread and Butter set. This is the way to start! I love the multiples of the shapes. It makes cutting even faster than before - so fast and accurate and easy. The Studio cuts like a hot knife through butter - I would recommend this cutter and set to anyone that has a dedicated quilting space - it is the best.

I ordered this kit December 2011, but was too busy with work to even look at it. I recently took it it out of the box. I love how you can cut your fabric so quickly. I look forward to soon using all of the dies that came with it.
