    Walmart's site to store is awesome. I did have a problem with the machine and dealt directly with Simplicity. They were great in sending a new machine and paying all postage. This is a wonderful invention for crafters. I'm not much of a sewer but use it to cut strips to make material into crochet items. Awesome! Awesome!

    Product was easy to use. Instructions were accurate. Beats cutting 40 strips of fabric by hand. I found that you had to cut slowly in order to avoid wavy strips.

    Faster and more fun than cutting strips by hand

    The machine comes with the pinking blade installed, but changing the cutting blade was very easy. The blade adjustment was simple too. It only took a couple of slight quarter-turns of the screw to cut cleanly through the test fabric. The blades are not sharp by design -- the machine utilizes pressure to make the cut -- so you will not cut yourself when handling the blades. For the most part, the machine makes clean, straight cuts, even on the bias. It gets a little wonky near the end sometimes, but any extra width is easily trimmed with a scissors. It does help to hold the fabric in back as directed in the online instruction video. So far, it's been much faster and more fun than cutting strips by hand. I've already used the cut strips on several sewing projects that needed ruffles, spaghetti straps, or bias tape. With the companion Simplicity Bias Tape Machine, I was able to make bias tape for elastic casings with the same fabric that was used for the sewing projects. With store bought bias tape, sometimes it's impossible to find a good match, so I was able to achieve a truly custom look. I only wish the combination foot pedal/power cord was a bit longer. Overall, this machine has been a useful addition to my sewing equipment and I'm pleased with my purchase.

    I read the instructions on how to replace the blade along with the tension on the blade. This machine does a Great Job on cutting material into strips. One small improvement would be the power foot - Hey Guys do us a big favor and extend the length of the power cord from the back of the pedal to the outlet from 30 inches to at least 60 inches(5 ft). This is the only complaint that I have. It was easy to loosen the nut to replace the blade. It was simple enough to tighten the blade. I love this machine. It does make doing strips faster and easier.(especially if you have carpal tunnel) There is a magazine that shows how to make quilts out of strips. (and not just sewing strips together) That magazine is called Quilt. It sells at all Fabric Stores. Now I am excited to get into the different patterns you can get from Strips of Cloth. With this machine and just using the strips I will be able to create multiple Quilts with out having to take 4 hours of my time hand cutting each strip. This is Truly a Great Time Saver.

    I absolutely love these products - took a bit of thought to get the cutter to work, but when I figured it out, it works very well. Cuts straight and quickly! Tape maker is terrific, and price is much cheaper than at the big sewing/craft store. Also love the "ship to store" feature - no shipping charges!!!

    • A. No! Pattern pieces are best cut with a dress maker(angle scissors). This machine does fine for cutting strips But it will be very difficult to cut pattern pieces out due to its limited cutting width.

    • A. The machine is geared for straight lines (not meaning can't be pinked or waved, but in long lines vs. circles etc)due to the length of the guage. If you are patient and really focused, I suppose you would be able to cut out odd shaped pieces with satisfactory results.

    • A. It comes with a pinking blade and a straight blade. They are not sharp either. It uses pressure to cut instead of a sharp edge.

    • A. As you can see from the description, it comes with a straight blade and a wavy blade.I am loving this machine as I work in the garment company doing samples.It saves me time and it is so accurate.It is slower that I would like it to run but it still saves me time.I usually have to mark the fabric and get out the long rulers and handheld rotary cutter, and hope that the ruler doesn't slip. So,I am happy with this machine.

    • A. Yes, Wavy, perforate (good for paper), pinking (zigzag), as well as straight. I believe the machine comes with straight and zigzag. Check the description on other sites, if the detail info is not here.

    • A. This machine can cut any size material you want to feed into it. All it does it decoratively (straight included) cut the edges. You can adjust how much of the edge you want taken off. By moving the gauge to 3/8", you only cut off a small amount. You have to go ahead and precut your fabric to 12 X 12 PLUS what you will be cutting off. I love it!
