This tool is so cool! It really helps in designing either your quilt, squares, or triangles. Just enter your specifics and watch it go to work. It's that easy. Can't wait to design my next quilt with the help of my Quilter's FabriCalc!!

I received my new FabriCalc door/hinge and am so thankful to Calculated Ind. for promptly taking care of my problem of the broken hinges. I fully intended to pay for the replacement and was pleasantly surprised (maybe even shocked in today's market) that you immediately sent a replacement out to me and without charge! I know that I am only one little voice in a giant market place, but I am telling quilters near and far about your product and how you have stood behind it. Thank you!

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.

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!

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.

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
