I had several people ask where I got my Aurifil cone from. I bought mine from That Thread Shop. If you do a search on Aurifil cones there are several sites that come up.
I am a HUGE hypocrite again; but ONLY because it was a such a good price. I picked up a Go! cutter at JoAnn Fabrics today. They are on sale all this week for 270ish dollars. I picked up a long mat and the 1.5 inch strip die. They wouldn't take my 50% off coupon for the die or the mat though. Apparently those are considered "special items". Oh well. I tried.
I've been cutting 1.5 inch strips out of my fabric all evening and I am almost done. Wow. It's taken weeks to get strips cut and now I can cut between 5-20 at a time.
I've only been doing fat quarters so I don't know how well it works when you fold your fabric. I only have three complaints so far. Sometimes the mat creates a crease in the fabric, the static electricity is driving me nuts and the way they number their dies. There are not SIX dies included as I count the half square triangles ss one die set making it three. Sorry, counting the 4 half square triangles doesn't count as separate pieces.
I also subcut the sets into 1.5 inch sections. I lined up a ruler along the edge of the cutter and put my strip set along the ruler. I carefully laid the mat over it and a few seconds later I had them done.
I have a hat and shoes to go eat now.
