    Here's a chart from the company that makes Accuquilt.It shows which dies can be used with the Baby Go!

    If I get one, will check this chart before ordering any dies. Prices shown are lower on most sites.

    Wondering if the holidays will bring even lower prices ? Just a thought. Does the machine come with any die? Check to see if the ones you buy extra will cut the size squares,strips & triangles you use most often in quilts.

    The GO!Baby does not come with any dies, but the Accuquilt GO! cutter comes with one. Hope that helps.

    Drat! I just bought a new one on Ebay for $182.00! Wish I'd have waited just a few days!

    $182 is a great price for the Go but not for the Go Baby.

    I think they are great, but you still have to buy a lot of templates, unless you make the same quilt over and over

    I thoought the same thing at first. You don't have to make the same quilt. If you get the half square triangles or square cutter. They are used in many quilt designs.

    It is funny that I am reading this post now. I just got done checking out the Accuquilt web site and gave a copy of the page with the Go Baby to Dh so he will know what I want for Christmas. He always says he doesn't know what to get me.

    I want to get 2 and 3 inch square and and hlaf square triangles to begin with. I can cut so many scraps with out hurting my shoulder and wrist cutting with a rotary cutter. I can make many quilts with just these three...

    I'm pretty sure the die that cuts 2-1/2" squares is available only on the multiples die that come with the Go. That is, there is no separate die only for cutting 2-1/2" squares in multiples. However, the Go Baby can take the 2-1/2" strip cutter die. You can use that die to cut many 2-1/2" squares at a time. Check Youtube for a video that shows how to cut 2-1/2" squares using the 2-1/2" strip cutter.

    I looked at the ads and seems like it would be very costly.

    I'm wondering if any the the Sizzix dies that I have for scrapbooking fit with the Accuquilt Go or the Baby. Does anyone know? If they do, it would open up a whole new avenue for me!

    I just looked up the accuquilt go on "I have a notion"
    You can get the accuquilt go vol.1 with 17 dies carrying case and mats for about 900.00 including shipping.

    Guess what Santa is bringing me? I HOPE!

    Only if you have enough money to buy the dies and like wasted material. I looked into this before I bought the Altos' cutting board which was a little more expensive, but does not need dies and makes an accurate cut with no waste.

    I don't have the Go!...yet,but have been reading posts & reviews from owners.Also downloaded the chart from Accuquilt site...as to which machine the dies fit....one or both.Kelly,owner of "I Have A Notion" has one & can answer questions about most cutters.She is also a scrap booker & uses diff cutters personally.

    Saw the Accuquilter in a LQS being used by the owner ,for a class she was teaching.Cutting is getting to be a chore....my back complains,so no longer able to cut most of the day.Thanks to all the posters sharing info.

I have to agree that I would buy it through Kelly at I Have A Notion. She is wonderful and very helpful, plus she has it for the lowest price I've seen.

    Just an FYI. If you place your fabric just outside the cut lines you waste very little fabric, as a matter of fact I don't toss out anymore fabric than I did when I rotary cut. Glad you like your cutting board.

    I'm wanting the accuquilt Go, but can only use my right arm/hand...can any owners tell me if this can be used with one arm only? Can it be used without holding it still or without feeding the fabric with the other hand? Thanks so much!!!! It would be a joy to get accurate cuts!!!

    I would have a tough time using my Go! without holding it down with one hand while I crank with the other. Sometimes also I need to push the die towards the roller with one hand while cranking with the other.

    The Studio is heavy so it may not have these problems. Perhaps someone with a Studio can comment.

    Caution though. It says not charged until shipped but it puts a hold on your bank account for the entire amount.

    Just wondering I looked up the Altos cuttingboard it looks much harder to manipulate than the Accucut Go. Is it?

    That's kind of a hard question to answer. I know some people put a form pad under the GO! cutter which keeps it from moving, but then again some times I like to hold onto the cutting mat with my other hand to hold the fabric in place as I'm turning the handle. I wonder if you could go to a fabric store and see if they have one you could try. Hope you find your answer.

    What seller puts a hold on your bank account? Haven't seen that mentioned.

    Thank you, hearing from some of you helps. Someone could help I'm sure, but I use sewing/embroidery as something to be able to do on my own. I was hoping the GO! might help me in that way. Thank you all.

    How did you have wasted fabric using the Go? Someone must not have shown you the right way to use it. I have 1/4" waste around each die shape, nothing more. I have the Alto Quilt 2 and never could get the same accurate from one cut to the next. I still use it to rough cut the fabric for the Go. :lol: :lol:

    The dies are not that expensive when you realize you get hundreds and hundreds of perfect cuts per die. If I didn't spend my money on dies I'd just spend it on something else. ;) ;)

    What is the difference in the baby go and the regular one besides the price?

    I found the accuquilt go vol 1 with like everyting for around 900.00 I thought that was reasonable.

    It really is reasonable. I SAY the dies are expensive...to ME they are, but I am single making minimum wage, so most things ar exensive, lol. But they ARE worth it, as Bella said, you can cut a billion pieces with one die.
    My Go was a gift from BF, and I already have some dies picked out for Christmas, lol!
