Die Cutters Part 3

This is my third post regarding die cutters. I’m not going to lie, die cutters are not inexpensive. I looked long and hard before I purchased my Accuquilt Studio Cutter. In the end, it is right up there with my long arm as far as favorite quilting tools. I’m seriously considering a second one for my AZ sewing room.

It is so easy to use. The accuracy is one of the best parts. I love using this to tame my scraps into pieces I will actually use.

I mentioned in a previous post, that a die cutter requires mats. They come in different sizes and I store mine under the cutter itself.

I store most of my Accuquilt dies in this shelf unit from Ikea.

The biggest ones get stored under my cutting table.

You do not need this many dies, I’ve been doing this for eight years so I’ve collected quite a few. Perhaps my next post in this series will be about my most used dies.

  1. I have this same die cutter. I would not trade it. I cut fabric and have dies to cut my cardboard for paper piecing. I also have a friend who works at a school (many have these) so I occasionally get to borrow shapes I would not usually purchase.

    You use yours so much it will save your wrists!! I got a Go! and love it but use it mostly for strips.

    Thank you for your die cutter information. I have a Go Baby and love it for the odd shapes and block on board dies. I waffle on getting a larger cutter, but don’t want to be locked into using only AccuQuilt dies. Do you know if the Studio/Studio 2 cutters can use dies from other companies like Sizzix? I know the Go series of cutters can not. The Studio cutter using Sizzix dies information seems to be inconclusive. Or maybe my search powers or comprehension skills are lacking this morning.
