    Hi everyone I'm new to the board. My board name is BellaBoo (my dog is named Bella so I call her BellaBoo all the time) I got the GO machine for Christmas. I was having trouble with my shoulder and hands after rotary cutting any length of time. I'm so glad this is available for home use. I love it. :D

    Welcome from Southern California. I have never used either of those machines. Do they work really well?

    I think they are the best things since the rotary cutter. It's great for anyone that has hand, neck, or shoulder pain when cutting. Many quilt shops are buying one so the customers can buy fabric and have it cut into kits. I haven't spent that much money of any quilting item other than my machine but when DH decided he needed a new ATV for 8 x the cost of the Go I hit that order button in a flash. :D I decided on the Go for the portability of it.

    Can you please explain the GO?
    How many templates can you use?
    How about fabric wastage?
    Can you give us a mini review?
    Thanks, cuz I am interested in one since cutting out is my worst part.

    I watched a demo on line makes me think of the crank pasta machine . You would need a lot of dies . The portable machine is $349, but I don't know what that includes. It shows a lady using a rectangle of fabric so you would still have to cut :D

    Any one have more details on this

    Hi ! I am a faithful reader of this site! You can get information on these new machines at : http://accuquilt.com/- it sounds like the answer to all the prayers of quilters who have trouble cutting accurately.

    Thanks for the link (but it didn't work for me)...I hate to cut, but for that price...I might have to learn to like it for quite a while longer. :roll: Hey , do ya' think they will be like tv's, puters and cell phones...the price will drop the longer they are out...?? :lol:

    sorry that the link did not work for you - possibly try: www.accuquilt.com -

    they have two machines - one for businesses and one for home quilters nicknamed the "Go" - it seems very similar to the Cricut for scrapbookers.
    Expensive as you have to buy the dies separately but a great investment for people who have trouble with cutting.

    Hi Bellaboo!

    I LOVE my Accu-cut machine. I recently upgraded my Mark IV machine for the new machine that they have (Studio??). I LOVE LOVE LOVE my machine. so much that I started an online custom cutting business.
    The "dies" are expensive, but make nice birthday, anniversary, christmas, etc. gifts. family ALWAYS know what to get me. I have an ongoing wish list that I give them. =)
    if anyone has any questions, please email me, or call Accuquilt--their customer service is the best. Roxanne is the rep I usually ask for.

    Bellaboo,

    What comes with the Go and how many accessories/dies do you think it would take for the average quilter? How did you decide between the Go and the studio? I am interested because I have a hard time cutting and my finger joints and one arm is painful.

    I have been looking at the accucut longingly. No money for it just now. Maybe someday.

    I too want one real bad! I can't justify the cost though. But my LQS has the larger one and they allow shoppers to use it for a small fee. I haven't done that yet but I love that the option is available to me.
