    AccuQuilt GO! cutter advice

    Does anyone use this machine, either the full (10") or Baby (6") ? If so, can you share your experience? Also, any ideas on where to get one for less than list price besides eBay.

    There is a Yahoo group called pinsandneedles1. Best prices I have found anywhere. The moderator has a separate website for ordering here: http://diecutyourfabric.com/. You can compare prices without ordering, go to the bottom of the page for details about how to do that.

    I really like my Go Baby. I like being able to cut out an entire quilt in an hour. I had a problem with one of my dies, I used it a ton and it developed a spot where it wouldn't cut. I contacted Accuquilt and they replaced it for me.

    I would have thought so too, but when entering "accuquilt" as a search term, nothing appeared. Now, the only thing to show up is this thread. Is there an archive I have overlooked?

    Quilters warehouse has the Go at a decent price - $185. I think it is just the cutter though, no dies or mats, but they sell those too. Check them out and good luck. I am considering getting one as well, but I am still not sure that I would use it all that much.

    I purchased the Go Baby and loved it. My daughter used it and liked it so much I gave it to her and purchased a full size Go. Because I have arthritis, this is about my favorite piece of quilting equipment. It works great and I can cut pieces quickly and without hurting my hands.

    Yeah, the search option can be that way sometimes. Especially if you know only one name and others are using abbreviations or a different word. Really hard. So hard sometimes folks can give up. The moment is lost and they might get a feeling that what they post isn't really all that important.

    I own the big Accuquilt and like it. I have many dies, but have only used a few. My mother is using the 3 inch strip for my niece's log cabin quilt.

    I love mine. I use it to cut charms, 2.5 inch squares, and odd shapes like the apple core. I also own the log cabin which I just got and the 8" rag. Anything that is hard to cut or can't be cut with a rotary cutter is great. I also plan to get the circle die. I don't use it for strips because I think using a rotary cutter is easier for strips.

    I bought mine on amazon and it came with one die.

    I just received my GO this week. I bought it for $169.99 total. No tax and free shipping from Sewforless. Came with a starter die and mat. This was the best price I found and believe me, I checked everywhere.

    Was that the Go, or the Go Baby?

    I'm lazy. I use the Go or use pre cuts for all the quilts I've made in the last few years. I haven't found any pattern I want to make I can't cut with the Go. When this Go wears out I'll buy the Studio. I bought one of the first Go machines it's been about 7 years ago and it's still works like new. I don't baby it at all. I cut anything that will go between the rollers.
    Got fabric?

    BellaBoo, that is great to know for sure. I have the studio and got it because of my bad hands, it really saves them. It is fast and the time I save I can sew. Before I was done after cutting everything and couldn't sew any more for the day, now I can go at it.lol

    If you have a problems folding your fabric and rotary cutting, you still may have a problem with the Go. I bought mine and the strip cutters, I figured I can cut out pieces with the strips. I still get wonky strips sometimes.

    It was the GO. Figured I might as well get the big one since it wasn't really that much more then the Baby.

    I love my Go. I have a friend with arthritis and she uses the Baby and loves it.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
