We will start off by explaining a little about the book.
What can I expect of the book?
“This book is not a project book. It is a reference guide for die cutting across the 5 most popular fabric die-cutting systems – the AccuQuilt GO, GO Baby, and Studio; and the Sizzix Big Shot and Big Shot Pro. There are seven chapters which talk about everything from how to choose a die cutter, mats & other consumables, dies, fabric preparation & other materials, sewing & piecing tips, and further resources. The book is sized at 5.5” x 8.5”, is spiral bound so it lays flat, and will number at about 200 pages. It’s not necessarily a book that one would read from start to finish, although it is organized to walk you through the process. There are some photos and diagrams, but for the most part it is a “text” book. “
If you are the type of person that researches items before purchasing, then this is the book for you!
If you are the type of person that truly can not make up your mind about what type of fabric cutter will suit you best, then this is the book for you!
If you want to make the best decision as far as price and performance of a cutter, then this is the book for you!
If you want to know if you can mix and mingle your dies, then this is the book for you!
Ebony had done the research for you. She has taken the guess work out of the equation for you in making the right decision for you.
I love my Accuquilt Go cutter. Others have asked me questions about the Accuquilt Go cutter verses the other ones. I can not answer those questions for you but Ebony’s book can.
Be sure to check out all of the other blogs that will definitely give you a better insight into her book.

To give you a glimpse of what you can do with your Cutter, I will show you my scrap drawer. These scraps have steam a seam on the back and so I saved even the smallest of pieces.
Got my trusty Accuquilt Go out…and I got this ….
I can not really show you what I am doing with all of these circles but it sure made short work of it.
Here is a project some of you have seen but this is made from scraps from my friends project that I took out of the garbage after she left.
The point I am trying to make is with a fabric cutter you can almost make something out of nothing. There is only waste if you are not utilizing your cutter. Ebony’s book can show you how to minimize waste.
Your creativity is all you need to minimize it even more.
So today I thought I would giveaway these precut leaf and acorn shapes.
Just leave a comment telling me how you would benefit from this book. If you already have a fabric cutter, just tell me which one and why you like it.
