    Anyone have this? It is the first I have heard of it. I looked at the online demo and it seems like it would cut those hard shapes really fast and easy. I know I hate cutting!

    I have it and there are some posts here about it. I love mine. I was having problems with pain after cutting with a rotary cutter. This ellimantes all that. And the cuts are accurate, not one thread difference between the fabric cuts. All dog ears are cut off too.
    The dies are sized to interchange with any size block divisible by 2. The Tumbler block is my favorite. New dies are coming out soon. I hope a Drunkard Path or DWR or Applecore The bigger model is the Studio. It has more die shapes available and is good for mass production of cuts. I sew fabric scraps together and cut out block pieces. It's great for using scraps.

    I've been looking at that for quite awhile, but have come to the conclusion it is too expensive for me at this time. :(

    There is an accuquilt group by that name at http://groups.yahoo.com that has a lot of good information about the Go! That's where I learned about Shopper's Rule. I put in a bid and got a go! from SR for $280 with free shipping. Also found dies and mats online for 20% off and free shipping. This made the system much more affordable for me. (Actually, I bought it for my disabled sister to use but I will be using it too.) Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I am looking forward to it.

    Prism, would you let us know how you like it? If I could find a good deal on one, I may be interested.

    I was looking at one today. That is one of the most time consuming parts, cutting out several hundred, if not thousands, of pieces.

    The next quilt I have in line to make is ALL HSTs that I will do in squares and sew two at a time. If I could cut all those squares quickly and easily, I would be in heaven.

    What is Shoppers Rule?

    I got a Go! Cutter last week -- and I'm in love!! I've already ordered a couple more dies (which should be here tomorrow afternoon). As far as I'm concerned, this is the best invention since toilet paper.... :wink:

    I got mine from accuquilt.com -- probably could have gotten it cheaper someplace else but when I finally decided to place my order, I was put on a 4 week waiting list!!! Right now they are offering 99 cent shipping so this would be a great time to order...

    I can even cut perfect blocks sitting down....(wonder if I could get these people to pay me for advertising???)

    Instead of purchasing at their listed price, you can submit a bid on an item and they will either accept it or come back with a counter-offer. Someone posted on the accuquilt list that they had put in a very low bid and SR came back with $280 for the Go!, so I bid $250 and got it for $280 with free shipping. Since they restocked, someone else posted they got theirs from SR for $277 (but I can't remember if they got free shipping). SR doesn't always give free shipping, but they do run specials on it now and again.
