    I am new to quilting, but have been sewing for many years. Someone told me about the AccuQuilt Go Cutter. Is it really good?

    Thank you. How long do you own it? Is it worth the money?

    Had it a couple years. So far have cut a few sq and hst and my sil has used it. I need more dies for the patterns i have been doing. But it saves my wrist a good bit of wear. Some folks have had trbl with theirs at first. I think you shd read the topic here on the board and then decide if it is for you.

    I really like mine, but don't pay full price. Joann's has them every so often for $199.00. Also, learned thru a post recently, not to use too many layers at a time, as it will damage or break it.

    I have had my go for about 9 months and love it. It is so a precise. You get a perfect cut everytime. You can cut sew much quicker than with a rotary cutter. I like to cut 4 layers at a time. Others do cut more. You will love it.

    I think my Go is just as important as my sewing machine and cost many times less! The Studio model is getting less expensive now so think about that one if you have the room for one.

    I got brave and used mine to do 2 1/2" strips for an inner border yesterday. They were really easy and perfectly straight. I had very little leftover fabric. I can't wait to use it for other things. It took longer to iron the fabric than cut the strips.

    I really love mine.. I have the 6" tumbler, 2 1/2" strip cutter, and 6 1/2" square. They are ready to use. And personally, I dont think that there is as much waste as when you cut it with a rotary cutter.

    I got mine as a packaged deal on Ebay and it is great. Then I belong to an AccuQuilt Cutters Yahoo group where I get my dies 35% off and sometimes she has a special bonus sale with even more off. I have about 18 dies and love it! For me it was well worth the investment. I asked for $$ for Christmas last year and used the proceeds to purchase it.
