    I need some advise from those of you who bought the Accuquilt. What dies do you recommend to start out with?? When you buy the die does the mat come too or do you buy them separate??? Now that you bought it, do you really love it? Is it worth the investment?? Please help me grrrr I'm so confused.

    I was just about ready to buy the Studio when it went off sale on the website. Talk about Grrrr. So now I have to wait until it's on sale again:<

    I just have the go. Yes, I love it, only wish there were more dies for it. There are ALOT for the Studio, not as many for the Go, but I could never have afforded the Studio!

    I use my Studio alot. The GO is not gauranteed for life and the studio is. Worth the extra cost. It is steel and will hold up for a really long time. GO is plastic and looks really flimsy next to a studio.

    The 2 1/2" die is a must. I use my triangles and squares a lot. I will buy more strip dies as they go on sell.

    The Studio on sale was $100 off...now I'm kicking myself. And I'm like you, I really like the lifetime guarantee.

    I have the Accuquilt Go! and like it. Had thought I would want the Studio, but the Studio requires dedicated space to leave it set up; the Go! folds up and stores in a small space in my closet when I'm not using it.

    The Go! comes with a multi-cut die and mat. When you buy additional dies, you need to buy the corresponding size mat separately.

    I have seen the Go!, dies and mats on sale for 50% off (recent JoAnn's sale online). At that price, or at 40% off suggested manufacturer's price, I think it is a good long-term investment. I think it becomes much more questionable in terms of worth if you pay full-price.

    I thought I'd buy the Go and later buy the Studio if I used it a lot. I'm happy with the Go and have no need for the Studio after all. I don't do mass cuttings and I don't loan my Go out to others. It's very well made. The mats are sold separately but they last a long time. I'm still using the same mats I started out with. I like the Tumbler die. I have all the dies except the rag quilt die and some of the appliqué dies. Those don't interest me. I pre ordered all the new dies. To me the Go and dies are like fabric. I may not use it everyday but it's there when I want to use it. In no time I can have all the shapes cut I need for a quilt and no cutting mistakes. There are many videos on youtube showing tips and tricks to use the dies to get more shapes from them. I would buy it again and I did. I bought one for DD.

    I have the Studio and love it. I have never regretted the purchase. I decided to get the Bread and Butter starter set and have added other dies as I needed them or when they go on sale. I now have other quilters who have me cut pieces for them. The cuts are quick, easy and precise.
