Accuquilt: Christmas in July

Every year Accuquilt runs a sale in July called Christmas in July. This year their sale is buy 3 dies get the fourth free and it is on select dies only. 
We decided to run it in the shop a little differently.
All instock Accuquilt Go Products are 25% off the listed price. This includes all dies that we have in the shop right now, as well as the GO machines that are in stock, and the die mats too, and we have decided to include the Qube selection as well. 
We have a wide selection in the store, they may say out of stock on our online website, but just call the shop if you are interested in any, as we have an offline reserve and so there may be a couple left on the shop floor. 
Now is a great time to get that new die you have had your eye on for awhile or maybe get the Qube or expansion pack for the Qube you already have. 
If you have not heard of the Accuquilt System it is a cutting machine that is very safe to use and results in quick and accurate cutting. 
How it works is you take the die for the shape you want to cut, place your fabric on the die, layer a die mat over top and run it through the machine, and voila perfectly cut shapes, strips, squares, rectangles, or triangles.
There are 3 sizes of Machine
The GO Baby or GO Me which is a nice small and portable machine. 
The GO, which we call the regular machine, it works with nearly all the dies.
And the GO Electric, which does not require any hand cranking, just load the die, push the start button and it will run all by itself. This one has become increasingly popular. 
The blades that cut the fabric are all surrounded by foam so there is little chance of you cutting yourself.
You can also cut multiple layers at one time, which really speeds up the process. 
All the triangles have the 1/4 inch notches built into the die, which removes the dog ears, and also shows you where the two shapes need to meet when sewing. 
2 of my sons have used the system to cut the fabric needed to make a quilt when they were 6 years old. The oldest 3 love using the fun shape dies and pieces of felt to make new critters and scenery items for their Felt Board. 

Have a great week, Kayla
