    I see where the Accuquilt site has the Studio Cutter on sale for 495.00. Does anyone know of any cheaper price available? Thanks.

    I think I read somewhere that the Studio hardly ever goes on sale. I think the Accuquilt site is the only place that sells it (new anyway).

    Grab it at that price. You can only buy the Studio directly from AccuQuilt, and it doesn't go on sale often.

    That's as cheap as you're going to find. Unless you buy one used like I did.

    We're talking about the Studio.

    Well maybe they would like to compare the Go with the Studio, never know.

    I was looking at the Go and the Studio. I plan to use it a lot so thought the Studio may hold up better. The Go seems to have better prices on dies though.

    I have the GO, guess it really depends on what kind of cutting you plan on doing - kits for club use, sales, or personal. From what I have read, the Studio is heavier, the dies are very expensive compared to the GO.

    The Studio dies will be more expensive because they're made sturdier and have a longer warranty.

    You really need to have the space to leave the Studio set up all of the time. If you have the space, it is nice to have. There are more dies available for the Studio, including the option to have custom dies made for it.

    Having said all that, I got the Go because I really don't have the space to leave the Studio set up and I am very happy with it.

    That's for the Go. The Studio is a different machine.

    Go to the Accuquilt site and check out the specs. on the Studio. It gives you the unit measurements. Then you can get an idea about space needed.

    Plus, don't you need extra space in front and behind it for the longer dies to go through? It wouldn't have to be table space, necessarily, but space anyway.

    Yes. About 18" clearance on both sides.

    You are right...I am now looking at the Studio...wish it would come with a die...I am debating on the Go or Studio...My hubby does not like the price of the Studio but watching the videos seems like it would be worth it.

    Does the Accuquilt cut "bumpy" fabric well? I cut old chenille bedspreads into 5" squares for quilts. Should it work for this?

    What would be the best couple dies to start out with. Most often used?

    I know the 2.5" strip is very popular.
