    Big Shot Pro! I have the Go and I have been doing research (too late, unfortunately). I have decided to sell my Go and save up for the Big Shot Pro (the westminster model-it has all the stuff to use the longer dies). Find the yahoo group called pinsandneedles1 and sign up. She has better prices.

    I'm with Gale on this one, I love my accuquilt go!, but I wish I would have saved a little longer and went with the big shot pro.....WAY more durable and works with almost any dies.

    The Big Shot seems pretty decent. But, I do not see anything geared more towards quilting, except for applique type of things. What about like 2 1/2 inch strips, etc?

    I am sold on the GO...and it does have dies that cut strips! The Big Shot PRO is heavier and not as easy to move around. And costs over $100 more

    The Big Shot Pro can use all of the Go dies, most of the Studio dies, plus all of the Sizzix dies. Not to mention all of the low profile dies (quickutz, sizzlet, nestabilities, etc) that are made for paper (and some use for fabric).

    I have the GO and like it very much. Do a search on here and you'll find information. Also check out Accquilt on Yahoo Groups---tons and tons of info there.

    Oh, I see. I had not realized that. Gosh, I am not sure which one I would chose then. Even though I cannot afford it right now... A die cutter is on my wishlist.
