    My daughter has one and loves it...she got it off craigslist for a great deal...and she bought vinyl from a printer for WAY cheaper than craft stores. So keep that in mind if you need any.

    Just saw it myself and though I would like it because you can put your own patterns on it through your computer. Nancy

    I have one and I really like it. I have used it to make stencils to then quilt on my tops. I have also used it to make vinyl letters and things like that. I have also used it to make applique cut outs. It's a lot of fun1

    what kind of material did you use for the stencils? And did you need a different blade? I am ashamed to say I got one LAST Jan and JUST got it out to cut some labels for my "Cookies in a Jar' gifts! I was not very successful the 1st couple of tries (mat was too sticky and shred my cardstock....and the blade was not set deep enought and it just scratched the card stock and shredded it). I persisted tho...and make a nice tag. Cutting stencils and vinyl is my next hurdle. Glad someone asked the question!

    PS from the book, you can only cut fabric that has been interfaced. ...I have not tried it yet, so don't quote me!

    Thank you everyone for the ifo. I won a baby go cutter on the internet and just can't justify the money for the dies. I bought two plain ones, and found out I could cut faster with my rotary cutter and mat.

    I haven't seen one of these before. I can see how it would be a great tool for certain crafts. Will it cut more then one layer of fabric at a time? I have the Go and Go Baby and use it to cut fabric, paper, stencils, vinyl covered fabric, most anything that I need cut into a shape. I don't mind buying the die shape I need.
    Got fabric?

    As far as I know it will cut only one layer of any think at a time, but on the other hand you can be program it to cut multi patterns on one sheet.

    This has been on my wishlist for months! I have a couple of friends who have one and they love it. I am still saving up money for one.
