    Well Candace...you were right it is hefty in weight! And I have it still in the box! I have to be patient until I am set up and get more supplies. Tax refund is what I am waiting for!

    I am! I did win one die from eBay today, a five inch squares with no pinking and 6 squares. (imagine..up to 60 5-inch squares in a few cranks of the handle) Also purchased some others (rectangle rag, and 2 different size squares for rag and a rag flower shape)from a member on this board. But I won't receive them until after Christmas. Well I lived this long with out one so I guess I'll survive.
    PLUS it isn't assembled! Aw patience!!!!!! I'll be raving about it soon though!

    Since I'll be setting my Studio up at the local quilt store, I want to offer some basics first then get more.
    I am going to get the 2 1/2 inch strip cutter, the 12 inch block set, 3 inch strip cutter (because that's what I use) 5 and 1/2 inch triangle to use with all those 5 inch charms I have and will have.
    I won a 5 inch square die with 6 squares at a time on ebay.
    I bought 2 sizes of rag quilt squares a rectangle rag die with batting cutters to match and a flower shape for rags. I imagine the flower can be used for other also.
    The letters and numbers would be handy if I could offer them, but they are terrifically expensive! Maybe a selection of circle sizes, stars and hearts.
    I'll have to do a survey as I go.
    Myself...I'll use the 3 inch strip and the 5 inch and 5 and a half inch triangle combo. I'm not so much into small piecing.
    There are over 300 dies to choose from! I need a gigantic loan! LOL. Did you decide to get one?

    A friend of mine just got one, can't wait to see it. She says she's going to do "cutting for profit". I sorta like cutting. I do a bunch in a day, spending the whole day at it. I find it relaxing, oddly enough.

    This will sound awful... but I'd forgotten all about it until I read your post this morning! I still kinda do want one... let's see... it's justifiable as a business expense and... well, I haven't gotten a new toy in years. (New gardening gloves really don't count as a "toy".)

    You said that you are setting it up at your LQS... does that mean that you will rent time on it? Could you do that? And earn your way little by little toward all the other dies you are hoping for?

    Yes, that's the plan. My LQS owner is very excited about it.
