I appreciated this thread as I always second guess myself. I got the Go Big after selling the regular Go cause I couldn't turn the handle. It was my wrist and arm strength.......... My friend has no problem with it, so we both Won.

Love my Go! Don't forget that you can share dies with a friend. There are embroidery designs available to go with some dies too.. Fun projects!

I have the Studio 2 and love it. I have mine set up on a rolling cart and store my dies and cutting plastics below the machine in the cart. I do not regret the money I have invested in my Studio 2 and dies. I am able to cut my quilts perfectly with minimum effort. I have never regretted buying the commercial grade machine. Dies go on sale. I pick the dies I want and put them on my Wish List on the Accuquilt site. When the sales come along, I am always ready to take advantage of them. I absolutely love piecing with PERFECTLY cut pieces.

I love the Sizzix, no problems. I bought it because they started making the quilting dies for Jenny Doan's projects, of Missouri Star Quilt Company and I am a huge fan. Friends that have Accuquilt also bought the Sizzix for the quilting dies & were impressed with the lower cost and large variety of quilting dies.
Accuquilt dies can also be used on the Sizzix, so I did buy a couple of them when I saw a sale at Quilt in a Day site, haven't had a chance to use them though.
