Best Innovations Award Goes to GO!™ Cutter, Booth Staff Recognized for Excellence

It truly is one of the most innovative new products to hit the quilt and fabric cutting markets. Quilters love it because their ideas and suggestions inspired us to design it.

AccuQuilt, a distributor of fabric cutting solutions in the quilting and fabric crafts markets, was presented two awards by Steve Berger, CEO of the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA), in the Fabric/Quilting/Needlecraft category at the 2009 CHA Winter Trade Show in Anaheim, Calif.

The award for Best Innovations was given to the AccuQuilt GO!™ Fabric Cutter, an innovative portable fabric cutter designed especially for the home quilter and just released at Fall International Quilt Market in November, 2008.

"We are thrilled that CHA is recognizing the GO! cutter for this prestigious award," said Andrea Ronning, AccuQuilt director. "It truly is one of the most innovative new products to hit the quilt and fabric cutting markets. Quilters love it because their ideas and suggestions inspired us to design it."

The AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter is a fast, precise, affordable fabric cutting system that allows quilters to cut fabric as much as 90% faster than scissors or rotary cutters. Included with the cutter is a FREE die with several shapes on one die, plus a cutting mat, so it's possible to start quilting right out of the box.

AccuQuilt also received the CHA Exhibiting with Excellence award. This award recognizes excellence in showmanship by booth staff on the floor. CHA Exhibiting with Excellence Awards were presented to companies whose dynamic displays, merchandising techniques and inviting staff enhanced the overall atmosphere of the show floor. Voted on by members of the press, consultants and CHA staff, the judging criteria included use of floor space, visual appeal of exhibitor booths and overall presence and friendliness of staff.

"Our staff is phenomenal at trade shows," said Ronning. "It's ingrained in our culture to exhibit a fun, positive, winning attitude at all times. I'm honored to work with such a great team of people."
