I just wanted to say that I have had my fabric calculator for many many years. I had only ever used the top row and even then I didn't always remember how to use it. I have just watched your 4 lessons on you tube. They were brilliant. I learnt soooo much and am now very confident I will get a lot more use out of the calculator. Thank you so very much.

The Quilters Calculator was a gift for my wife.
She has only been using it a short time but she tells me it was a great gift and it has helped her a great deal in planning and estimating her quilt projects.
Another excellent product

Easy as 1, 2, 3

This calculator has so many different uses. I know longer have to worry if I have enough of a fabric to complete a project. Especially useful is the 45 and 60 degree diamonds button. I don't have to purchase excess just to make sure that I have enough fabric. It takes the guess work right out of it, like 1, 2, 3!

 
Cool

I was a bit over whelmed at 1st but I watch the tutorial online and feel better about this product. I to am new to quilting and i do think this will be a great addition to my hobby.

I haven't used the Fabricalc in a store yet but I am convinced that it will simplify purchasing required fabric. I liked the product so much that I told my Mom and she ordered one as well.
Thank you

My wife was quite pleased with the calculator and the instructional dvd. My mother in law - a long-time quilter - like it so much that she bought one for herself and another quilting friend.

As I am a beginner quilter, I can now purchase the correct amount of fabrics for my own designs, with no risk of not having enough farics. It has made it so easy to work out required amount of fabric.
Thank you so much for such a great tool.
Helen.

I want to thank you for this wonderful product. It is easy to use, and takes the guess work out of how much fabric to buy for your own personal designs. It also lets you know exactly how much you are spending on your quilts. Again, Thank you
