I've gone and done it

Well, there's no turning back now. I've made a couple of videos with my AccuQuilt Go! cutter and posted them to the web. I just hope my students don't find them. Ugh.

Here's the first one, for your viewing pleasure :)

Marking your AccuQuilt Go! dies. I put a new twist on things I believe from what I've seen out there. There are a lot of videos on how to mark your dies. I mark beyond the actual steel blades because when you lay the fabric over the lines, you can't see where they are. By drawing the lines beyond the blades, you can make sure you have the shape of the die fully covered. It is a great way to get the best use out of your fabric. I'm not sure I got the point across in the video, but I hope when you try it for yourself, you will see what I mean.

Enjoy the video and try it for yourself.

And stay tuned for another giveaway coming soon! I'm having too much fun around here, despite the migraine that won't quit!

Finals are next week and then another 3 day weekend! I love being a teacher :)

That is a great idea, I'm constantly peeking under the fabric to see the lines and I still mess it up sometimes.

I enjoyed your videos. For one...I enjoyed seeing the 'real you'. For have made me wish to have a GO! As you remember, I am a bit afraid because of my arm but I think after talking to several people and looking around that I could use it.

The second video was nice for those of us that might not have the funds to buy alot of dyes.

Well, I'll add it to my wishlist for someday. But a decent sewing machine comes first! (Unless I win one!)
