|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.|

|I love this calculator, it makes setting up a quilt a real breeze.|
|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!|

|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.|
|User: Torrance Downes from Old Saybrook, CT|
|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.|
|No more guessing|
|User: Sandi McGilvray from Chiloquin, Oregon|
|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|
