    That's good to know. I have a gray mat for my strip cutter but the store sells white ones. Next time they're on sale I'll be sure to get one.

    I had purchased my studio,and then less than 6 months later out came the Go,but as I keep seeing I am happy I have the studio because I can get the larger die sets and have a quilt cut in less than an hour.yahoo

    $199 is a good price but check out Amazon.com - I think that's where my daughter got mine. It was around $189 including postage. I've bought extra dies and mats there, too as they have better prices.

    If you go to the Yahoo homepage, go down the column on the left to "Groups." Search for pinsandneedles (all one word). You want the sewing related one.

    Although you have to request membership, it's generally approved pretty quickly. Prices are 35% off MSRP if paying by check or money order, 30% off if paying by card or Paypal (costs more as there are fees associated that she has to pay).

    My orders have always been sent within a few days. Kathy has a nice chart that I've printed off - item name and number, pricing, and "want" "have" columns so that you can keep track of what you have.

    I also recommend the Accuquilt group through Yahoo. Lots of good information is shared, and there is a gallery of completed projects organized by die.

    I have a Sizzex system and find it very useful for cutting many uniform applique shapes. I first put the vleisofix (like badge master) on the back, and cut through about 5 layers at a time and then play with placing all of the hearts, strs, butterflies etc that I have cut.
    Accurate and time saving, and the dies only cost $16 each - not hundreds.

    I have the Studio, certainly not a pro. LOL Just learning.

    I love the studio. Cutting is accurate. Not a lot of waste at all.
    Makes cutting so fast and everything lines up so nice while sewing.

    [quote=Debbie B]I'm back again...ha. Just got another notice from my Facebook question about the white mats. The first post was from a another member. This one was from Accuquilt and it said:
    Hi Debbie,
    AccuQuilt wrote:"Ladies - AccuQuilt has decided to switch back to the white GO! Cutting Mats moving forward! Although the gray mats work fine, we know that our customers prefer the white cutting mats over the grey ones."


    It is so nice they listen to their customers.

Right now the Go is $199 at Joanns and I believe that will be the best price I can find. I guess I am asking for everyone's opinions. What do you LIKE and what DON'T you like about these cutting systems.
    I love my GO cutter, everything fits perfect together and my quilts look so much nicer and easier to sew together. Can you tell I like my GO and would not give it away for nothing. Good luck

    If you have an issue with your handle on the baby just call or email the Accuquilt company, They are a great company to work with. I emailed them once and I got a phone call back the same day. They will be there to help you. Good luck.

    I saw this on Facebook too, but personally I like the gray mats better, but I can go with the flow and use whatever they put out. Never had a problem with either mat as far as that goes.

    I made the quilt in my avitar with the Go!
    When you fabric doesn't cut anymore would be my guess on when the mats aren't any good. I'm still using the mats that I got when I got my GO about a year ago. So none of mine have worn out yet. As far a fabric waste, I will say if you can't handle a very very narrow slit of fabric as waste then you will not like the go. But also if that narrow slit of fabric is like a waste to you, then I would also suggest never to get into machine embroidery. Now that to me has some waste, but I wouldn't give that up either. LOL

    I hear about a lot of places that have dies for less cost than Accuquilt sells them- Although Accuquilt does have some good daily deals if you go to their web site or if you 'like' them on Face Book you hear about the deals. I don't keep track of all what I hear, seems like Amazon, Ebay, maybe Overstock.com, and I know there are a couple yahoo groups that the owner sells for % off. I know this doesn't help much, but just know the sales are out there. Now with that said I just got my FabricDepot.com ad and on March 15 through March 21 is their Anniversary Week and they have everything for 30% off, but it didn't say if it was on line or just in store. I get all my dies from FabricDepot with my 40% off coupon. But I only live 1 mile from the store. I hope this helps a little.
