    Ive got most if not all the dies minus the sue & sam and Wedding ring.. No interest ..

    As for the mats.. I use my accuquilt for scraps.. I cut whichever size fabric I have and match it with that size die.. I use it ALOT.. I go thru mats like crazy.... I buy a spare for my spare... The mats alone are not that expensive. But when I find a sale I pick up a few whether I need them now or not.. I'm going to use them eventually.. I make sure I have the 10x10 and kudos of back ups as when this one wears out from the intended die used Ill use it for the 5x10 dies.. The Cuts are in a different location so it works well for me.. Same goes with the 6x12 mats.. just down grade to 5x10 dies when the 6x12 dies have grooved it almost to death.. Also I have heard on low heat between towels to 'iron' the CLEAR mats and it supposedly refreshes the mat and heals some of the grooves as these mats are not self healing.. I have not tried this.. By the time im finished with my mat it looks like it went to war..

    I love my GO.. my favorite die is 2x2..perfect for scraps, leaders and enders.. I hate the diamond & parallelogram dies.. I just cant figure for the life of me how to sew them to make them even!!! So until then they will sit in a clear box mocking me..

    I noticed in my new Joann's flyer beginning the 13th of this month the GO! is on sale for $199. This is the least expensive I have seen it. If you are lucky enough to have a Joann's close you could even save on s&h. I know that not all sections of the country run the same ads sometimes so not sure if this is nation wide or not. I live in Oregon.

    I saw the same in the ad here in NC. I need to find someone close by that has one so I can see it. Sounds like a fun toy to have but not sure if I can justify it. Maybe I can find someone willing to cut for me at a price or if I would buy them a mat or two :).

    I would love someone to offer me that!! I go thru them so quickly..

    Some LQS will rent them by the 1/2 hour at their store.. or will allow you to sample cut a few of the dies.. Overall it is some investment when you take in consideration of the cost of the cutter and all your accumulated dies and disposable mats.. It is well worth it for me as I use my cutter alot..
