    Go Baby starter set for $69.99

    I found it on Amazon from Accuquilt. Go Baby, two dies and one mat. I bought it for a door prize for guild's Christmas Party. Someone will be a very happy guild member! I love having an unexpected surprise for someone. It could even be me. LOL There were some left if anyone is interested in getting one.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    Will that one work for some of the basic dies I use for the Go?

    Most all the dies except the big square ones will fit. I don't think the extra long ones will fit. The die will have a Go Baby logo on the package if it fits. You can look them up on the Accuquilt to see if they are compatible.

    This includes the Go Baby cutter. Accuquilt it discontinuing the Baby. It's not compatible with the 10"x10" or 10"x24" dies.

    susiequilt, it has 2 6"x6" dies and a 6"x6" mat.

    thanks i read that but... i can't understand why two the same. i thought dies were almost indestructible so it would seem to me that one die and more mats makes more sense. since i am more a fabric collector than a sewer anymore i don't think that's for me. wonder if that is finished 5 1/2 block. odd size must read the fine print.

    The mats do last a long time but not forever. I just got my Go Baby so I don't have any idea of how long they last but others have said the do last a long time. It also depends on how often you use it. The more use the faster it will wear out. I would assume the finished size would be 5-1/2" but the listing doesn't say. The seller on Amazon is not Accuquilt and the dies aren't the same ones that come with the one on the Accuquilt site. Accuquilt is sold out of the Go Baby.

    There are two different dies, tumbler die and flower die, and one mat to fit both.

    I clicked buy it again and it was still available from Accuquilt. I have Prime so free shipping, I don't know if free shipping applies to general buys.

    well, after thinking it over again and reading the fine print and thinking about the mountain of scraps i have i decided it would be perfect for using it to cut tumbler blocks from fabric for charity quilts.
    i don't have prime but got free shipping too. it also from accuquilt.
    thanks for helping me decide and helping me remember that i can't take it with me.

    The Go Baby was delivered yesterday. It turns very smooth, smoother then my very old big manual Go. I was thinking I may keep it but I know I wouldn't use it that much. I know someone at guild will be happy to win it.
