    Sizzix Big Shot Machine

    Hi,

    I was watching one of the missouri stars quilting co you tube videos yesterday and the lady on there mentioned a sizzix die set, I was thinking what the heck is that. So I do what everyone does, googled it. Oh my goodness. I want one.

    I can't believe I didn't know about them. You can tell I don't know much about quilting can't you. lol

    So I asked my husband I really want one of these. He said yeah sure remind me closer to Christmas. Yayyyy!!!!

    Just remember you have to buy dies and they can be expensive. I suggest loking over thr Sizzix website to see if they have what you'd like.

    I've had a Big Kick (smaller version of Big Shot Pro) for years for paper crafting and now buy the odd die for fabric. I mostly use it for hexies.

      You will enjoy your Big Shot.
      I have the Big Shot as well and I bought a 4" square die.
      The dies can be costly if you plan to buy a lot of them, so understand that up front.
      It does save an awful lot of time and the cuts are accurate.

        Thanks for the advice. I will look into it more as Christmas approaches. Oh just googled and saw the price of the dies. No doubt I can find something else to get for Christmas if I decided not to get this. lol

          Look at the Accuquilt also. It is similar to the Big Shot and the dies are more quilt focused. As with the Big Shot - it is the dies that can get really expensive.

            I might suggest you look at the Brother Scan and Cut. That's what I purchased, and have been very happy with it. No dies, and if you have a embroidery machine that uses PES it can talk to it. I use it for applique, and its great.

              You can also check on craig's list for someone wanting to get rid of the one they have. If you find one, usually a great savings and they have dies also at a very reduced cost.

                I have the Big Shot that I bought for paper crafting. This one goes under the heading....things I have bought and wished I hadn't. Haven't tried it for fabric, but knowing how much paper you waste using it, I am hesitant to try it with fabric. If I need 4" squares, I can cut a dozen with rotary cutter and ruler than 1 with the Big Shot. Save your money for something worthwhile....like more fabric.
