TrueCut Keeps You Cutting Straight!

Hi Moda Fabric Lovers, I am Karla Gerome, and I have been quilting for over 30 years. When you are working on high-quality Moda Fabric, you want to use every inch and leave no room for error. I have seen a lot of cutting tools come and go, and I have used my fair share of them. I have always been looking for the right cutting tools and once I used the TrueCut cutting system, I didn’t have to keep looking. I have found the perfect cutting system and TrueCut provides the best cutting tools from start to end.

Rotary Cutters

There are so many rotary cutters out there and I know each quilter has at least a handful or more. We all like to cut and we are always searching to find the one that feels and cuts the best. How many of you are looking for that one ergonomic rotary cutter that will allow you to cut with ease, and cut with comfort? I know as I have talked with many quilters that there are two issues they run into, one is comfort and the other is fatigue. Who wants to cut more layers, cut longer, cut with accuracy and not get fatigue in the process? Who wants to stop having white knuckles from squeezing their rotary cutters? I know I do!

I use the ergonomic My Comfort Cutter by TrueCut. Looks different right? No, it looks comfortable! The curved shaped handle fits nicely in the palm of your hand, and the palm of your hand drives the power straight down to the blade. The My Comfort Cutter has a guide that interlocks with all TrueCut rulers, keeping the blade against the ruler’s edge for straight cuts. I have talked to so many quilters who have arthritis, carpel tunnel, and/or ligaments removed from their hand, who now use this rotary cutter and they love it. See the track and guide system below.

Rulers, rulers, rulers!

We all love our rulers. There are many different rulers for different projects. What I love about the TrueCut rulers, and this is the best feature that I have come across, is the track that runs the entire length of the ruler. I was always tired of veering away from the ruler’s edge as a I reached the top of the ruler. With the track and guide system, I cut straight every time.

Another great benefit is that these rulers are injection molded with clear ABS plastic, providing you with a stronger, more resilient ruler that better withstands bending, warping and cracking. Having a strong ruler is nice, especially when the ruler falls off the cutting table a million times.
Track and Guide System
How many of you veer away from the ruler’s edge? Or from trying to keep the cutter against the ruler, you go up and over the ruler and nick the top of your fingers. We have all been looking for a system that keeps us straight and safe. No more veering away or going up and over the ruler. Once I interlocked the cutter guide on the My Comfort Cutter to the ruler track, I was cutting straight every time. I have seen rotary cutting become more and more popular with the younger generation, and this cutting system has been by far the best to use. I love how easy and accurate the TrueCut cutting system is. Who doesn’t love cutting accurate every time?


TrueGrips

These are my favorite. We all have rulers that we want to keep from sliding. I have noticed the stress that I put on my arm when holding a ruler in place without TrueGrips. I did my arm a favor by putting TrueGrips on the back of my rulers. Now holding my ruler is easy and stress free. These are adhesive transparent rings that grip on the back of any brand or size of ruler. I love that they don’t raise my ruler or damage the fabric, and I can still see the ruler or mat markings.

Here is a demo on TrueCut, the best cutting system:

  1. The ruler track, for the track and guide system, is a fantastic idea. I wouldn’t have ever thought of that. It would eliminate most of MY screw ups. Thanks for showing us this new to me ruler cutter combo. One more thing to add to my “I’ve got to have it” list. ;->

  2. I have seen this system but have never tried it. I have severe arthritis in my hands and gripping and guiding the cutter is always a challenge. It looks like this would be very helpful to keep me from slipping. Thanks so much for the great giveaway!

  3. The track and guide system is a wonderful idea. It certainly would have saved me a trip to the ER and 6 stitches in my left index finger. I also love the design of the rotary cutter. Thank you for the chance to win

  4. The shape of the cutter reminds me of my Gingher which I like alot. But I really like the track system on this ruler. I can’t tell you how many times I have veered off course when cutting fabric. Thanks for the chance to win this.

  5. To be honest, the True Grips are things I would want the most. They’d be great for using on specialty rulers/templates that can be difficult to hold in place while you cut.

  6. This whole system would help me. Just had hand surgery and find it hard to use regular rotary cutter. Love the track, I alway slip at the end. Just imagine straight cuts, that would be wonderful. Thanks for giveaway.

  7. I like the ruler guide and the ergonomic cutter. I’ve tried an ergonomic cutter before and had issues with blade stability, but this one appears to correct that issue. I’d love to try it all!

  8. I would have to say that the track guide is the most intreguing to me on the Truecut system. The ergonomic handle is pretty awesome too. Anything to help with less wear and tear on my body is perfect!!! Thanks so much for having this giveaway, I hope I win it!!! 🙂

  9. …I am new to the world of quilting and have been trying to perfect the art of the rotary cutter 🙂 Practice makes better but always looking for tips and advice. I definitely need to give the the track and guide system a try!

  10. Everything about this system intrigues me!! I have recently noticed my carpel tunnel is getting worse with my age so the cutter sounds like something I could benefit from! And the track system! I have definitely veered away from the ruler as I cut! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  11. I bought both the ergonomic cutter and the ruler. I have to say I’ve been very disappointed in them. The cutter is awkward to use and doesn’t feel as if it’s better ergonomically than a traditionally shaped cutter. When using the blade and ruler together it’s to miscut the size depending on how you hold the blade. I’ve found that I don’t get a consistent size when I use it.

  12. The rotary cutter and the ruler intrigue me. I have had my rotary cutter run up on the ruler before and a system that eliminates that would be wonderful!

  13. The ruler and the Track and Guide System, looks very good to me, I have a problem with my hands, so it would be Nice to have some help of the ruler self to cut straight lines

  14. The track and guide system seems to be exactly what I need! Quite often I find myself “veering off” from the ruler, so this is something I could use!!!!! Thanks for telling us about it…I’m going to check it out!

  15. The part about it being easy to hold…I have arthritis in my thumb and fingers and cutting can be painful~ especially if there is a lot to be done. So this REALLY intrigued me! I also like the idea of the track and guide system. When my hand gets tired it gets ‘wobbly’ and the cut isn’t always as true as I would like! Thank you SEW much for the chance to win the set up!

  16. The track and guide system looks very interesting but so does the ergonomic style of the cutter. Would really love to win this, my tools are way past due for replacement. Thanks for a chance.

  17. I like the whole system! No matter how careful I try to be, my ruler is always slipping at the top of my cuts or I’m cutting away from the edge. Thanks!

  18. The cutter ins very intriguing to me as I have arthritis in my hands and so cutting can be a tad uncomfortable. That an my rule slipping even with the nonslip sheets on it! Thanks so much for a chance to have this set up!!

  19. I love the no-slip grips, but the best part for me would be the guide. I am always either veering away from the ruler’s edge, or (most often) shaving off a little of my ruler (not good for the blade or the ruler!)

    Would love love love to try the true cut!

  20. The track and glide idea intrigues me. Also would like the grips a big bunch. Have tried several things but think this would be the best.

  21. The ergonomic shape of this cutter really intrigues me. As I age, the wrists complain if I do too much, and I suspect this cutter would help. Thanks for the chance to win.

  22. I have always wanted to try the cutter. I have switched to another ergonomically correct brand and it relieves the pain in the wrist and arm. But this in addition to the rulers and the guide seems like a wonderful idea. Thanks for the chance at winning this combo.

  23. I love the track and guide. I always seem to cut crooked and have to even it up all the time. Just think of all the fabric I waste. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful idea and product

  24. Love the idea of a track and guide! I always end up cutting crooked so this would be a life saver for me (or maybe I should say, fabric-saver!)!

  25. The tract guide on this ruler is wonderful – I have often cut away from me and as I get to the end of the ruler veer out and get a little tail. This system will stop that bad habit! Thanks for the give away!

  26. Every time I cut fabric my wrists and hands hurt for hours afterwards. I have been buying only precuts so I don’t have to cut so much! With the TreuCut, I may be able to cut fabric again!

  27. I have not seen a system like this
    before, with limited local resources
    don’t often get the opportunity to
    see the latest and greatest, first hand. Thank you for sharing all
    the information, I will definitely
    have to check into this cutter, to
    ease the discomfort, of aging hands
    and wrists. Appreciate the post.

  28. That track and guide system really intrigues me! I ALWAYS seem to veer off the ruler at the top of the fabric when cutting! Thank you so much for a chance at this generous giveaway!

  29. Having arthritis myself, this seems like it would provide some relief. The track and guide system would be well worth the investment. How many times have I veered away from my ruler and had to recut? Many times.

  30. I have to say I love the giveaway series. I’m discovering so many wonderful new tools – TrueGrips is one of them. I totally agree with pressure I put on my arm when cutting. These would be a perfect solution. Thanks for the chance to win.

  31. The track and guide system is awesome!I tend to nick the edges of my rulers with my rotary cutter – it looks like this would prevent that from happening!

  32. I have carpal tunnel problems. I bought this system at Paducah last year. The concept is great, but the first time I actually USED the ruler, I realized the lines on the ruler, relatively speaking, are pretty big. It’s hard to be as precise with this ruler.

  33. The shape of the cutter intrigues me. The idea of the pressure and power coming from the top looks like a great idea.

  34. I have severe tendonitis in my right hand/thumb and it’s sooo painful just to pick up a needle let alone a cutter. This cutter absolutely appeals to me. If it helps with the pain when applying pressure to cutting, it’s for me. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  35. Hi! I am most intrigued with the track and guide system. It seems that cutting is what takes me forever. I measure and measure and start to cut from the bottom, then my ruler starts to slip, I have to stop, line everything back up, re-measure, start cutting again, stop, move my hand up towards the top, it just takes forever and accuracy, I might as well forget it. Thank you for the chance to win! It would be a blessing and a dream come true. I might even start to enjoy the cutting part!

  36. Wow, I’ve never heard of this rotary cutter and ruler system. I love the track idea. I’m always veering off when I get to the end of my cutting. grrrrr. Off to check out the video.

  37. I am very intrigued by the molded clear ABS plastic track and guide system on the rulers. Boy would that be a blessing to not have a ruler slip when you get to the top!
    thanks!

  38. I really want to try the track & guide system as I go off track a lot & get so angry at myself when I do that. This sounds like it would save a lot of frustration.

  39. Since I have arthritis in both hands and shoulders, the whole system intrigues me. It would make cutting so much easier and less painful. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome system!

  40. I have been wanting to check out the track/guide system but don’t have the money for a new investment right now. Thanks for a chance to win a set!

  41. The track & guide system would be wonderful for me. After suffering a stroke, I always have trouble staying close to the ruler and making a straight line. Thanks
    for the chance to win!

  42. I think the track & guide system is wonderful! I wish I had a nickel for every time I went wonky cutting. That won’t happen with this ruler & rotary cutter. I also like the fact that you can personalize your cutter. That would be quite handy in classes. All rotary cutters tend to look alike in class. Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous prize!

  43. The hardest part of quilting is cutting out the fabric! This system looks like it would be very helpful. No cramping in my hands from holding the rotary cutter! It all looks like a wonderful product I really need! Thank you for the giveaway!

  44. The track and guide system sounds interesting. It’s amazing how people are still improving upon these instruments. I started quilting before rotary cutters. Thanks for the chance to win, keeping my fingers crossed!

  45. Wow ~ the track and guide system looks wonderful! Not only will it help you cut straighter, it looks very safe! I’d really like it if my sweet granddaughter could cut more safely. I surely don’t want her to join me in the “I’ve Cut My Finger and Had To Get Stitches Thanks To My Rotary Cutter Club!”

    Thanks a bunch for the chance to win!

  46. The rotary cutter is intriguing but I am very interested in the track & guide system on the ruler. Veering off can be a problem for me especially if I have been cutting a lot and am tired.

  47. I am thinking the track and guide system would be so great for beginners. Learning how to cut accurately can be so difficult and this would make it easier!

  48. The TrueCut System seems amazing. It keeps the cutter from veering away from the edge of the ruler by locking the cutter guide to the ruler track. That is intriguing. I can’t wait to win one or purchase one. Thank you for sharing.

  49. I’m definitely intrigued with the True Grips. Even with the little sand paper thingies on the backs of my rulers, the rulers slide–and I get an inaccurate cut. 🙁

  50. As I’ve gotten older I find that |I have trouble keeping my cutter lined up with the ruler, so I would to have the Truetrack ruler and cutter to keep me lined up.

  51. WOW WOW WOW what a fantastic idea, the track and guide system is something I would not have thought about. It would eliminate all of my errors in cutting. Thanks for showing us this new ruler combo.

  52. I love the cutting track! I also always seem to veer off at the end — or find myself pressing so hard against the hard to the ruler that it accidentally shifts and causes a crooked cut.

  53. Making a straight cut without the “flare” at the end of the strip would be absolutely awesome.

    Pretty, pretty please pick me to win!!

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  54. I love the ergonomic aspects of the rotary cutter and other pieces of the system. Since I already have arthritis in my right hand, I am always looking for ways to protect my hands and wrists so I can keep quilting. Thanks for these solutions–hope I win your wonderful giveaway!

  55. ~~ What intrigues me is the comfort and usability of the cutter. I would like to try this to see how it would work for me with their matching ruler as well as with my current stash (many) of rulers. Thanks for the opportunity.

  56. I love how it catches on the lip of the ruler to keep from slipping. I also Love the handle on the cutter that is so much more comfortable to use. I love the true grips too.
    ( does it sound like I all ready have one?)When someone asked what is the one quilting tool you couldn’t live without I vote for this cutter and ruler. LOVE it.

  57. Oh wow! What a great feature for the guide on the cutter to interlock with the ruler. I do so have a tendency to turn my cutter away from the ruler edge. kathleen dot lutz at doh dot state dot nj dot us

  58. OMG, what a clever idea! I love how the cutter and ruler integrate to form the perfect cutting partnership. The unique ergonomic design of the cutter providing the perfect downforce to aide better cutting while the unique track and guide keep you straight and accurate. I would love to own such a brilliant pair of tools!

  59. I have just developed a trigger finger condition in my pinky finger on my cutting hand. I have a hard time gripping the rotary cutter on the two styles that I own. This cutter you feature might do the trick, and I’d like the chance to try it out.

  60. Oh my goodness! I sometimes have shaky hands and the combination cutter and track will definitely help with accuracy. What a fabulous invention! Thanks for the chance to win.

  61. I’m intriqued by the rotary cutter. My wrist hurts for hours after cutting fabric so something that would help eliminate that would be very welcome!

  62. I love the idea of the track system as it is so frustrating to cut incorrectly. Thank you for an amazing giveaway.
    ks(dot)eyles(at)yahoo(dot)co(dot)uk

  63. Since I am on a computer all day I love love love the design of the rotary cutter. It is so easy to use and my hands don’t cramp up. The ruler sure makes it a lot easier since I tend to run away from it at the end of a long cut. Thank you so much for designing these wonderful tools.

  64. I have the TrueGrips on my most-used rulers and they have certainly helped! The cutter guide used used with the TrueCut sounds like something I must have; there will be no more little wiggles when I am cutting!

  65. I saw the TrueCut demonstrated at a quilt show last year, and should have bought it. Wow, I DO need this!
    The full track and guide would prevent slips and veering off course. Busy quilters need all the help we can get! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  66. Not only do I like the ergonomics of the rotary cutter but I’m intrigued with the concept of the way the cutter fits on the ridge of the ruler to provide a safer and more accurate cut. Very clever ideas- love em!

  67. I need that guide! No matter how hard I try, I still get cuts that curve either at the bottom or the top, or both! I’ve checked everything I know to check and can’t figure out for the life of me why my cuts aren’t always straight.

  68. This ruler and cutter sound awesome. Will have to try them out. I’m always afraid I’m going to slip and cut myself. Thanks for an opportunity to win!

  69. What intrigues me the most is the track system. It sounds like it would be safer and I know I’ve messed up some cuts when my cutter has strayed away from my ruler.

  70. My favorite feature is the tracking system, as I do experience my cutter moving away from the ruler and causing inaccurate cuts from time to time. I would love to give this a try!

  71. Love the ruler and would be so excited to win and try it out! My wrists get so sore when I have a marathon cutting session with my boring old rotary cutter. Thanks for the giveaway!

  72. I would like to try the guide system – looks like a way to improve accuracy while cutting.
    Anything to save some time cutting is good too!

  73. Although the track system looks interesting I am most intrigued by the shape the cutter has. I think compared to the straight ones it could be more user friendly.

  74. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cut a strip “thinking” that I’m going straight only to see that I’ve veered away from the ruler – this is an awesome idea.

  75. The interlocking edge is what intrigues me the most. I would love to try the rotary cutter and ruler be causing cutting is my least favorite thing in quilting. If I was more accurate it might not be so bad.

  76. i have the ruler and love the fact that the ruler doesn’t slip which is the biggest problem I have when cutting. I have MS and my hands don’t always work right, i just need My Comfort Cutter by TrueCut. hope i win

  77. I’m in agreement with so many others, that track and guide system is the area that is most appealing. However, when my wrist gets sore from cutting fabric I would find the ergonomic cutter most appealing. Or when my ruler slips the tiniest bit, I’d find those anti slip stickers the most appealing. So, it just depends on the latest predicament. Thanks for the chance to win.

  78. I’ve had carpal tunnel surgery on both wrists and do not have much strength when pushing down. I like the ease of using my thumb to help push the cutter!

  79. I’ve really felt the strain in my arm after a day of cutting, and find the whole ergonomic design of this system fascinating! Thank you for the great informative post, and the chance to try this system!
