Imagine cutting all the pieces for a queen sized quilt in an hour, or hundreds of circles in less than 10 minutes. That is the power of our AccuQuilt Studio, affectionately known as “Mr. T.” We named him Mr. T because we imagine he is thinking, “I pity the fool who’s still rotary cutting!”
You’ll make the best use of your rental time if you prepare your fabrics in advance, but you are welcome to use our professional steam generator and large cutting table while you are here. You may also purchase fusible web from us if you are preparing fusible applique. Most dies cut multiple shapes at once, up to 10 layers (depending on die & material), so your cutting projects are easy and fast!
Your rental time entitles you to use any of the more than 500 dies we have, and you may choose among a wide variety of both Sizzix and AccuQuilt dies. Once you pay your rental fee, you may call us to arrange a time to visit. Studio hours are by appointment, and usually available in the evenings and on weekends.
If you’ve never used the Studio before, the first 15 minutes of your rental time will be used for training.
NOTE: Rental time is purchased in 1 hour blocks, and billed in 15 minute increments as you go. If you purchase a block of rental time for 3 hours, you may use those hours any way you wish. Unused time leaves a credit on your account.
You are welcome to cut any of the following materials on our dies:
- Craft Metal
If you are planning to cut anything other than cotton fabric however, please consult with us to recommend appropriate dies and recommended layers. ÂAlthough the dies are perfectly capable of cutting all materials, we reserve the right to disallow Âmaterials on specific dies.
Die cutting saves time, but there are still some preparation tips to help you use your rental time efficiently.
- Let us know what you are making so we have your dies ready in advance.
- Iron your fabric to remove wrinkles. Press out the factory fold on all yardage cuts.
- If you are using a pattern, bring all pages of your pattern with you.
- Arrive a few minutes early. Your appointment time starts whether you are here or not.
