    Has anyone tried this cutter and is it worth the cost? I really have a hard time with triangles, more sewing them together then cutting but could this help my problem?

    It could certainly help. You can spray starch two fabrics, place them right side together, iron them, and run them through the Go! using a half-square triangle die. You can stack these doubled fabrics twice (cutting 4 layers at a time). The resulting triangles will be stuck together, ready for sewing, with the corners clipped off for perfect alignment.

    Sounds like just what I need. So now all I need to do is tell Santa to open up that wallet because I found my Christmas gift. Thanks everyone!!!

    I have the Accuquilt Studio and love it. I cut custom kits for people, though, that's why I have the Studio over the GO!. You might want to join the Yahoo group--at the Yahoo site search the groups for Accuquilt. There are some people who are VERY unhappy with some of the dies.

    Is that mittens on the baby's feet in your avatar? How cute! My kids put lots of stuff on their feet, but never mittens. Pretty ingenius, actually. After all, mittens are made to keep our 'digits' warm, and toes are also digits, so why not?

    They seem to be having these on sale now too :wink: The more accurate the cut the less problem you should have sewing them together :D

    I've had the Go as soon as it was available to buy. I love it. The problem some had with the dies was mostly human error but there was a problem with one of the bigger dies and AccuQuilt replaced the defective die that some did get. The main thing to remember is order from a AccuQuilt dealer. One that can replace or return without a hassle. The cost now is way less than what I paid and I would buy it again at the higher price. It's worth it to me. The Go is a personal model and won't cut but four layers accurately, the Studio is for ten or more layers and best for mass cuttings. I love sewing my scraps together and then cutting out a shape and have it all scrappy and cut perfectly. The tumbler die is great for this. I was amazed at the amount of yardage I was tossing in the scrap box. I ordered a few more dies for Christmas for a gift to myself. I always buy myself a gift. :-D

    AccuCut Go website is having free shipping -- which is a good deal -- for the holiday season.

    Got an email from JoAnn's this morning -- BIG sale on AccuCut and accessories -- WRONG! They just marked down their over inflated prices to what you can buy them for anywhere.....

    I have the Accuquilt Go! And really like it. SUPER easy to use and the cuts have been really accurate. Now I'm new to quilting but got this because I didn't trust my rotary cutting ability. My mother has also been using it a lot to make precut squares etc, to sell at church benefits.

    I haven't tried this die yet -- but it really looks interesting! I don't know how hard it would be to sew but your pieces would certainly be cut accurately!! :D

    If you decide to get it, I'd like to know if you think it is difficult to sew.... :lol:
