I emailed the Accuquilt company last night about returning my cutter. I just want my money back, but I bet they'll just want to send me another. If they do, it's tempting to just sell it privately.
If you've decided the Go! cutter isn't for you, my favorite tool for cutting strips is a Shape Cut ruler by June Tailor. I bought the 18 inch one online from Walmart last week and have been using it instead of my cutter. I have the 12 inch one but it wasn't long enough to do the cutting I needed.
The 12 inch Shape Cut is available in most stores, but the Shape Cut Plus isn't. I called all the retailers in my local area to no avail. Walmart had it online for 25 bucks and they shipped site-to-store for easy pick-up. It seems to retail around 40 bucks everywhere else.
Thankfully, my FIL leaves tomorrow. For the most part, he's behaved himself. Except in public where I had to profusely apologize to the waitress for an extremely crude joke and his tantrums about the music volume. Apparently he's not a Queen fan and for losing his hearing, he sure hears more than he should. Selective hearing maybe? I do recongnize that hearing aids amplify every sound to the same level you've got the volume at, so I know the music probably came in pretty loud to him. It still doesn't excuse his tantrums.
I'm hoping his wife takes my son and I to the chiropractor without him. We are under a heat advisory making it not safe to just walk up. I called the office giving advance warning just in case he comes. The receptionist laughed, said she understood and would warn the doc. Umm..I hope she still laughs after he leaves.
