    My daughter talked my husband into buying one for me for Christmas at least three years ago. I never even used it. A friend bought it from me for $100. Waste of money to me.

    I just watched the video and it seems like it would be very helpful! I just can't find anywhere that sells it to get a price.

    I see the Accuquilt Go cutter is on sale at Joann Fabrics for $199. I'm new to quilting and also was curious if anyone else has comments about their machines, if the price is worth it, if the cuts are really good, and how much time it really saves them. The dies seem really expensive as well which makes me nervous about the investment. I just signed up for some of the swaps and was thinking this would make the cutting go a lot faster and more precise. Anyone's thoughts?

    I read the reviews on some sites and some of the cons were the price and the fact that it cuts into the mat quite a bit which means it needs replaced regularly as well.

    I have the Quilt Cut and use it for everything. For me, it was worth every penny. Yes, I have Joyces favorite shape cut, also. The Quilt Cut is heavy, so sometimes when I'm cutting in a place that is small, I'll use the Shape Cut. I don't have the big one, so sometimes
    I have to moe the shape cut to cut all the way across. Accuquilt? I don't do applique, I can't see the advantage for strips or squares.

    I've had one for 7 months and never used it. It seems a waste of fabric for strips and squares. If you are appliquéing, I can see having it for the shapes, but its much easier for strip cutting and squares to use the rotary cutter and ruler.

    I have heard others say its easier for the, to turn the crank than it is to use the rotary cutter for arthritis and other injuries, but to me, it just didn't seem easier (I don't have arthritis or any injuries to hand, wrist, arm, elbow, etC)

    I purchased one of these at a Quilt, Sew Expo and if it is the large cutting board and ruler I have, it is one of the greatest tools I ever bought. Straight cuts every time. Multiple cuts easy as pie.
    Watch the video and you will be cutting with it in no time at all. I was a bit intimidated when I first got mine. Now I even cut scrapbook paper with it (separate cutting blade from cloth one)
