Why Quilters Love the GO! English Paper Piecing Die:
- English Paper Piecing, or EPP as the truly hexie-addicted hand-stitchers call it, is the perfect “purse project.” GO! English Paper Piecing dies are designed to cut both the fabric and the paper (or cardstock) for English Paper Piecing on one die board.
- No templates! No measuring! No need to purchase expensive paper templates! The GO! English Paper Piecing dies allow you to cut out as many or as few hexies and paper templates as needed for a project without having to use a rotary cutter or ruler.
- Imagine the time you will save cutting! This die cuts up to two layers of paper or cardstock on the smaller hexagons (12 in one pass through the cutter) and up to six layers of cotton fabric on the larger hexagons (36 in one pass through the cutter).
- GO! English Paper Piecing includes 1/4" seam allowances on the larger hexagons for cutting fabric.
- A great way to use up scraps.
- Free pattern downloads available to get you started.
- Charm Pack-friendly.
- Cut so much more fabric in less time.
- Get accurate cuts every time -- No slipping rulers or mistakes
- Easiest to use -- Simply place die on cutter, then fabric and cutting mat on top
- Save fabric with Two Tone Foam -- Get more out of your fabric by placing it only over the shape you want to cut.
- Safe to use -- No blades come anywhere near your fingers
- With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.
- Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle. Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board.
- 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.
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.
